Complexion Changes

What is happening to my complexion

Is it a breakout or a glow? Either ways, an increased secretion of oils brought about by hormonal changes is responsible for causing changes in your skin. 

Dark spots have appeared on my face

You could suffer from many strange skin symptoms due to pregnancy. Some women are known to develop a dark line down the centre of the abdomen and the skin of a dark woman sometimes get discolored in the course of these nine months. Fortunately, most of these complexion changes return to normal after pregnancy. 

How do I take care of my skin

Remember that a good diet not only provides nutrition for your baby, but will also help your skin. Drink the most efficient pore purifier: water. Avoid make-up and creams and wash your face 2 or 3 times a day with water and a gentle cleanser. If your skin feels dry and itchy, use a moisturizer. Ask your doctor to prescribe a vitamin B supplement.

Folic acid deficiency is one of the main causes of excessive pigmentation. So make sure you are having your vitamin supplements regularly and eating greens, fruits and vegetables. Keep out of the sun, or apply a sun screen.
