Look after dry skin
Soothe sensitive skin
Rein in acne
One of the most traumatising pregnancy skin problems is reliving your teenage years, with angry red spots!
A lot of progesterone is produced during these 9 months, which stimulates the sebaceous glands, which leads to spots. You therefore need to deep-clean your skin and use an anti acne cream to fight against these imperfections. You can also treat the most visible spots locally, with an antiseptic product. Finally, gently exfoliate at least once a week to avoid pores getting blocked.

- Essential oils: although there is no scientific study on the effects of aromatherapy during pregnancy and on your baby's health, one thing is for sure: pure essential oils are extremely active, so not necessarily harmless. So, make sure you avoid them for these 9 months.
- Hot wax: forget about hair removal with hot wax for the time being, as this can really irritate skin that is already fragile due to the heavy leg feeling.
- Massage: back massages and foot reflexology can cause contractions.You must tell the practician that you are pregnant and avoid all massages before the 2nd trimester. Then, only choose massages specifically for pregnant women.
- Vitamin A: any anti acne or anti wrinkle treatments containing “real” vitamin A acids, even those applied locally (creams, lotions) and in small quantities on the face, can cause foetal malformation. Remove them from your pregnancy skin care routine.
