Pregnancy is a beautiful period of a woman's life as there's a new life growing within them. This is the phase where you can do whatever it takes to pamper yourself. Since your body undergoes many changes and so it needs the special care that you can give it. Doctors say that pregnancy is the time when your body produces growth factors and has more blood which causes the rosy glow on the skin. Although, there are other few skin problems that pregnant women face and you should know about them.
Stretch marks: This is one of the most common skin issue that every pregnant woman faces where they get stretch marks usually on the abdomen, buttocks, breasts or thighs. You can consult your dermatologist in order to resolve the stretch marks. Although, know that they can't be fully resolved but just lightened. Hydrate yourself and use moisturizers daily to prevent marks from getting darker.
Skin tags: Another skin issue which women during pregnancy can face is skin tags around chest, back, groin, under the breasts or neck. They don't usually cause any serious trouble to your skin but if they start irritating you or bleeding, you may consult a doctor.
Hyperpigmentation: This refers to the dark spot or patches on the skin that are caused by melanin. They're usually resolved post delivery but can also persist for a few years. Make sure you don't go out in the sun too often or cover yourself up with a good sunscreen lotion before stepping out.
