Look better during pregnancy

You are pregnant, and your hormones are all over the place. In addition to changes in your body, your skin can also start behaving differently. A pregnancy mask may develop, pimples can suddenly appear, or your skin may feel much drier than usual. Adjust your skincare routine to the specific needs of your skin during pregnancy.

Pregnancy and skincare 

Congratulations, you are pregnant! A special time has arrived. Major changes are going to take place. Your skin is no exception. Hormonal changes can make the skin fragile and irritated. With LOOkX skincare products you can bring the skin back into balance when you suffer from hormonal fluctuations.  

Which skincare products can you use during pregnancy? 

Before using specific skincare products during pregnancy, we recommend seeking advice from your doctor or physician. Fortunately, most common products are safe during pregnancy. These include cleansers, serums, creams and masks. Skincare with certain specific active ingredients, however, are another matter. To make it easy for you, we've listed above a selection of products you can safely use during pregnancy that will help balance and maintain your skin. 

Prevent a pregnancy mask 

Have you ever heard of a pregnancy mask? This is a (usually temporary) skin condition that often occurs during pregnancy. It is characterized by the development of dark, pigment-rich spots on parts of the face, usually on the forehead, upper lip, cheeks and sometimes the jawline. This pigmentation occurs as a result of the increased production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of the skin. Hormonal changes, especially an increase in estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy, can contribute to the development of a pregnancy mask. This pigmentation can vary in intensity and often disappears after delivery, although in some cases it may take some time for the skin to return to its normal color. Protecting the skin from excessive sun exposure and wearing sunscreen can help reduce pigmentation and prevent it from getting worse. Therefore, wear sun protection with preferably factor 50 every day, even when it is winter and cloudy.
