What's happening? hroughout pregnancy and new-mamahood, your body is packed full of hormones, and it isn’t just your mood that is affected by these natural chemicals. Your skin is incredibly sensitive to any hormonal changes. Looking on the bright side, most pregnancy-related breakouts lessen after the first trimester as the oil-stimulating hormone production moves from your ovaries to the placenta. Just bear in mind that your skin is particularly delicate and sensitive, and may teeter on the edge of breakouts until the little one joins the world, so to help improve this, maintain a gradual, gentle skincare routine to keep your skin feeling gorgeous and looking radiant.
