Skincare to Skip and Use of Pregnant Women

4 Pregnancy Skin Problems and Their Remedies

1. Melasma


One of the most common skin problems during pregnancy, melasma happens when brown patches appear on your skin. About 50-70% of women get it! Pregnancy increases skin sensitivity, making sun protection crucial. Never forget to apply this everyday, whether you’re resting at home or outside!

SPLURGE: ZO® Gel Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF-50 | ZO® Sunscreen + Primer Broad-Spectrum SPF 30

SAVE: Belo Prescriptives Sunscreen Gel 20G | Belo Prescriptives Sun Protection Cream 20G  | Belo Prescriptives Tyrosinase Inhibitor 5% 10G

2. Oily skin and acne

Oily skin and acne

When pregnant, hormone levels are increased such as androgens and progesterone. These are actually in charge of oil production in your skin.  Because more oil means more clogged pores, breakouts can occur. Worry not – we’ve got skin care for pregnant women and gentle options to take care of these!

SPLURGE: ZO® Gentle Cleanser | ZO® Complexion Clearing Masque (only available in-clinic) | Basic Facial | Neostrata Oily Skin Solution 100ML/Pore Clearing Solution

SAVE: Belo Prescriptives Glycolic Soap 10% 90G

3. Skin tags

Skin tags

A common concern during pregnancy, many of these skin tags actually shrink and go away, and won’t remain as a skin problem after pregnancy. Its main causes include weight gain and hormone levels. 

Your Belo physician may be able to recommend a treatment or other remedies for this, so book your consultation with us today!

4. Spider and Varicose Veins

Spider and Varicose Veins

Similar to skin tags, these can go away after childbirth. Your Belo physician may be able to recommend a treatment or other remedies for this. If they don’t go away, feel free to book a consultation with us.

To sum things up…

Each pregnancy journey is different for every mama. This will be a quick skincare reference for those who are expecting or nursing! Make sure to always consult with your doctor or a reliable aesthetic beauty clinic first before trying out new products.
