Use creams and oils to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy
Girls know that they need to be more attentive to their bodies during this period, but not everyone understands how to care for their breasts during pregnancy. The main recommendation is to use remedies to prevent stretch marks.
My favorite oil is from Weleda. It does not belong to the category of anti-cellulite products, but is ideal for skin with reduced elasticity. Ingredients include sweet almond oils, wheat germ, jojoba, Weleda's proprietary blend of essential oils (kept secret by the brand's employees) and arnica flower extract.
Pick one breast care product and keep using it throughout your pregnancy
During pregnancy, the skin becomes more tender and sensitive. Experimenting with cosmetics is definitely not worth it. In case of hypersensitivity and reactivity, pay attention to the series marked "for sensitive skin" and "hypoallergenic formula".
Make sure your body products are acid-free
Acids among the components of the funds will not have any harmful effect on the fetus. However, it can cause skin irritation and make it more sensitive to the sun. In the summer, be sure to use products with SPF.
Avoid retinoid cosmetics
These are retinol (vitamin A) derivatives. There are studies that suggest that retinoids can interfere with fetal development. Therefore, dermatologists do not recommend that girls use drugs with retinoids externally during pregnancy. This applies to both natural retinoids (retinol, retinol palmitate, retinaldehyde) and synthetic (tretinoin, isotretinoin).
Choose a perfume-free product
I advise my clients to avoid pungent creams, shower gels and other products. Most often they contain essential oils that can provoke allergic reactions on the body.
