During pregnancy, the body is constantly changing, as is the largest organ of your body: the skin.
An increase in the concentrations of the hormones estrogen and progesterone can lead to the appearance of imperfections affecting all layers of the skin: from the most superficial level, the epidermis (alterations in melanocyte activity and increased dryness), to the deeper layers (loss of tone, accumulation of lipids and circulation problems).
It is crucial to act promptly and target each problem from the earliest months of pregnancy onwards to help the body get ready to give birth and then to recover shape and tone after delivery.
Your weight increases and this, together with changes in your hormone levels, may cause tissues to stretch and collagen fibers to weaken, leading to the formation of one of the most feared and widespread beauty problems linked to pregnancy: stretch marks. One in two women will suffer from these.
Stretch marks normally appear on the tummy, thighs, buttocks, and breasts. You can, however, limit their appearance by using products that nourish, moisturize and tone the skin deep down, such as XtraTone Elasticizing Cream for the body and Seno 3D firming cream for the décolleté.
In addition to a belly that seems to swell like a balloon, even your legs may become swollen and heavy: circulatory problems – the main cause of water retention – are very common during pregnancy. The key to avoiding these is to stimulate the drainage and oxygenation of the tissues and so prevent the formation of edema (fluid retention), cellulite and telangiectasia (spider veins). The best way to do this is to start with a healthy diet, rich in water, potassium, fruit, and vegetables, combined with specific products.
Thanks to extracts of Seaweed, ultra pure Dead Sea Salts and trace elements, plus plant-based active principles, Bio Salina reducing cream is perfect if you need combined draining and stimulating action against cellulite and localized adipose tissues.
In the summer (but not only), mothers-to-be should protect their skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure. Increased levels of female sex hormones stimulate melanocyte activity which, together with a genetic predisposition, may cause the skin to darken. This condition, known as chloasma, is an alteration in skin pigmentation, characterized by the appearance of dark spots on the face.
The Chrono Age®Sun line contains a mix of photostable, non-absorbable filters so you can safely expose your skin to the sun even during pregnancy.
