Top 10 skincare tips during pregnancy

As soon as you find out that you are pregnant, you will want to make some necessary changes to your lifestyle. You will be thinking of cutting down on caffeine, eating certain healthy foods and making sure the products you are applying on yourself have safe ingredients for your baby. Due to the hormonal changes, many women will see differences in their skin. Increased acne, discoloration, rashes, increased oiliness are a few to name. With Palmer’s you can trust all the products in our range are safe to use for pregnant mothers. These products are hypoallergic and dermatologically tested. They will not harm the growing baby and only help in maintaining a pregnant mum’s healthy skincare routine.


So, what are the top ten tips for skincare during pregnancy? Read on to find out:

1. Apply Palmer’s Massage Lotion/Cream for Stretch Marks moisturizing cream every morning and evening all over. 
2. In the shower, use Palmer’s Sensitive Skin Body Wash for Pregnancy, which is a pH balanced body wash that’s gentle with moisture restoring properties.
3. On days when you are going to be out during midday, or hitting the beach, use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
4. As the area of tummy stretches to accommodate the growing baby, the skin can often feel itchy. Keep the area hydrated by rubbing in the Palmer’s Massage Oil for Stretch Marks.
5. Exfoliate your face at least once a week. This helps remove microscopic dead cells that can clog pores and lead to dull-looking skin.
6. Don’t skip on your skincare routine. Make sure you wash, cleanse, tone and moisturize.
7. Use natural washing detergent that is less likely to irritate the skin.
8. Before bedtime, use the Palmer’s Tummy Butter for Stretch Marks on the tummy area for an intensive treatment targeting the main areas of stretch marks.
9. Drink up to 8 glasses of water or more, and keep dry skin at bay.
10. Always read the ingredient list on the products. You should be avoiding products that have retinoids, isotretinoin, Benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin. Best to consult your OB/GYN if in doubt about the safety of products for pregnant mums.
