Skin problems and pregnancy

During pregnancy, hormonal changes often lead to skin problems, but don't worry, they are not serious and are only temporary.

Some of the most common ones are :

  • Acne... yes, you might see your little teenage pimples again!
  • Redness, or rosacea, due to circulatory problems.
  • Pregnancy mask, which consists of hyperpigmentation of certain areas of the face.
  • Dry skin, with skin that is tight and itchy.

However, don't hesitate to talk to your health care professional about these problems, as they usually disappear after childbirth.
