Posted by Susan Brown on February 02, 2018 0 Comments

Pregnancy and giving birth can change a woman in so many ways. Not only do you experience the joy of being a mother, but you also get to have instant camaraderie with other women who’ve had the same experience. If you’ve ever talked to another mom who just gave birth, one topic of conversation that is sure to come up is how one’s body and skin changes after giving birth. You may have experienced having that great pregnancy glow the whole nine months while carrying your baby, but after giving birth, you find yourself dealing with certain skin problems. And of course, there’s the loose skin around your belly to deal with, stretch marks on your tummy, and the fact that you seem to be shedding more hair than usual. Don’t fret—all of these are normal post-pregnancy conditions, and there are several ways to deal with these problems without spending a fortune. Look good and get your glow back by following these easy skincare and haircare tips after pregnancy.

 

 

For postpartum acne

 

 

It’s not uncommon for new moms to deal with postpartum acne as giving birth can trigger acne eruptions. To deal with acne, consider going natural first as taking antibiotics or other medication for acne may be harmful to your baby’s health if you’re breastfeeding. Eat a balanced diet and increase your consumption of anti-acne and skin-friendly foods such as whole grains, dark and leafy vegetables, fatty fish, fruits, and foods rich in Vitamins A and E. To get rid of blackheads, use a blackhead extraction tool such as a suction remover or a loop extractor to decongest your pores. Go easy on your acne, avoid excessive exfoliation, and ask your dermatologist to recommend a spot treatment gel that’s safe to use while breastfeeding.

 

 

For loose skin and stretch marks

 

 

It’s normal to still have loose skin and belly flab weeks after having your baby. To make your belly firmer, you’ll need to lose weight slowly as losing weight at a fast rate may result to even more loose skin on your tummy. Pay attention to food portions and do some aerobic exercises at least three times a week. To target flab, do planks and strength-training exercises. In time, your tummy will get firmer and the loose skin will be less noticeable. For stretch marks, apply a stretch mark therapy cream liberally, making sure to massage the cream into the skin. Do this daily after a shower or a bath to lock in moisture and to make stretch marks fade away.

 

 

For falling hair

 

 

Treat your hair gently if you’re experiencing excessive hair fall. Don’t wear your hair in a tight ponytail or bun as this can aggravate hair fall. Use a volumizing shampoo and wait a few months before coloring, straightening, or perming your hair. Apply a lightweight conditioner only to the ends of your hair to avoid weighing your hair down. You may also want to try a shorter hairstyle as it can make your hair appear fuller than it is.

 

 

Restore your glow by following these tips to look great after giving birth. Remember to treat your skin and hair gently and to consult your doctor before using new products to make sure that it’s safe for you and your baby.
