How one can take care of skin and hair care during pregnancies
Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a women’s life. As her body gets ready to nurture and welcome the new life in the world the, the skin, hair and even the mood changes rapidly. Some women hardly notice any change in their skin or hair throughout the pregnancy but for most women dark circles, pigmentation, chapped lips, dull skin, brown patches on skin, stretch marks, acne, spider veins, varicose veins, cracked heels, changes in nail and hair growth are very common problems. In some cases, women also experience itchy skin and small red bumps on the skin around abdomen and thigs.
Every woman’s body reacts differently to the change in hormones that occur during and post pregnancy. Some exercise faster growth in nails and in some the nails grow brittle and break while on the other hand some women notice thicker hair growth around their abdomen, thighs, hands and legs. Most of these problems are temporary and they go away after a few months of delivery, but while they are there they can be uncomfortable and cause irritation and stress, which is not good for the baby.
Before pregnancy booking a high-end dermatology treatment would have been the perfect solution for getting rid of the problems, however during pregnancy using chemicals on the skin and hair and even ingesting them is not advised. The best way is to go to a good dermatologist and follow the skin and hair care advice they give and embrace the natural remedies.

The diet requirements of your body will change as the pregnancy progresses and therefore work closely with your obstetrician and understand what to eat and what to avoid. Weight gain is normal during pregnancy but it should be a gradual gain.
