After problems and solutions of pregnancy skin
After problems and solutions of pregnancy skin.Finally, your precious little one is in your arms, and you are out of all the discomforts and discomforts associated with pregnancy. But for many, pregnancy causes havoc on the skin and body, which causes significant visible changes in the skin. This can make some women feel less attractive and, sometimes, even hopeless. Fortunately, there are many solutions to make you look better again.
You may have noticed dark spots on your face, belly, armpits, or groin during pregnancy and assume that it will go away after you have your baby. Unfortunately, between 30 and 50 percent of women will continue to have this pregnancy-induced problem called melasma. Caused by hormonal changes that make your skin more sensitive to the sun, melasma is a particularly annoying condition because it tends to affect the face in the patches.
What can you do?
For this problem, you can try natural masks that combine yogurt or buttermilk with lemon or oranges. These will give you a small percentage of Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA) for a gentle exfoliation. Fresh aloe vera applied in the mornings and at night can also help level the patches, if used regularly.
In addition to natural remedies, you can consult a dermatologist for faster results. Some treatments are:
Metabolic peeling: This that exfoliates the upper, opaque and dead layer of the skin, revealing a fresher and brighter appearance.
Diamond polishing: in this case, diamond crystals are used to gently remove the dead debris from the skin, which literally makes 3-4 lighter shades at a time.
Laser therapy: this is essentially a focused light, which specifically targets the affected area.
2: stretch marks
About 90 percent of women suffer from stretch marks at some point in their lives and pregnancy is one of the most common time periods when this happens. These unsightly reddish purple marks turn whitish over time and are caused by the skin’s poor elasticity when the skin is stretched with weight gain. These can be more visible on the upper arms, thighs and abdominal area.
What can you do?
To cure stretch marks, apply cocoa butter creams as a daily moisturizer. Receiving massages will also help to improve the elasticity of the skin.
With the advent of new technologies, there are some treatments that can now help eradicate your stretch marks. The following are some of them:
Microdermabrasion: if done deep enough, it can really help reduce the size and color of those annoying stretch marks. However, it can be a bit painful and slow, and requires a minimum of 15-20 sessions to get full results.
Perfect Pixel: This treatment uses a laser to hit deep under the skin, forcing the synthesis of collagen and new skin.
Medication: These can only help to a certain degree. Topical creams with retinoids or vitamin A derivatives combined with creams containing at least 10 percent AHA, such as lactic acid or glycolic acid, help if the marks are dark in color.
Acne is a common problem that many women face during and after pregnancy. With fluctuating hormones and a lot of stress, pimples are almost inevitable. Fortunately, this problem can be easily handled.
What can you do?
Tea tree oil can be very useful to reduce oil secretion and bacterial load on the skin, which are the main reasons for acne. However, this will have very little effect on severe acne or post-acne scars. You can also look for willow bark extract (available in Ayurvedic or herbal products stores), which contains active salicylic acid. Although not as strong as pure salicylic acid, willow bark extract can be effective in helping to reduce oil secretion and unclog pores.
Acne can be treated with medication, but must be prescribed by certified skin specialists. They will prescribe treatments based on their skin type and needs, as detailed below:
Creams: It usually takes between 3 and 6 months to show full results. Then, patience is required!
Acne Peelings: To speed up the process, you may also consider performing acne peels, which will penetrate deeper into the affected areas to treat the pimples while actively treating them. The only side effect may be a little redness and some dryness of the skin, both easy to use.
LED therapy or ClearYou therapy: these uses point to LED light to selectively kill the bacteria that cause acne and
