skin symptoms due to pregnancy. Some women are known to develop a dark

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.
