Pregnancy is supposed to be one of the most beautiful times in any woman's life. However, some women can look dashingly beautiful while others feel like an ugly duckling. Pregnancy can lead to some significant changes in your body - as it is a time where harmful chemicals are taken in order to counteract the various changes that a woman experiences. It often causes hormonal upsets - two results are acne and a condition called malasma,also called "mask of pregnancy" which appears as dark patches on the skin.

   See below for a few tips for those of you who are seeking safe skincare products for during and after pregnancy...

    1.  Exfoliation  helps to remove the dead cells which leads to dullness and uneven skin-tone  Try:  Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub, $7.69

 

 

 

  • Invest in a  moisturizer that will keep moisture in the skin Try:  Curel Life's Stages Pregnancy & Moisture Cream, $15.88   
    Ladies, do use products containing glycolic,  hydroxy acids  and sulfur based topical products instead of those that contain benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or any retinoids as they are unsafe for the baby.
