Beauty tips for premamas
The miracle of life brings many joys, but also numerous hormonal changes that are transforming our body. Lack of sleep, fluid retention or the appearance of stretch marks and varicose veins are some of the main concerns of future mothers regarding their image during pregnancy.
Premamá: beauty tips to take care of yourself in pregnancy
Prevention is the best remedy to maintain beauty not only during pregnancy, but also after delivery. Here are some tips so that your physique does not suffer during pregnancy:
1. Appearance of stretch marks. The rapid increase in weight and dryness of the skin coupled with hormonal factors do not make it easy for the skin, which suffers and in most women results in the appearance of stretch marks.
In these cases, prevention is better than cure. That is, waiting for the stretch marks to appear and then wanting them to disappear without further ado is a fantasy.
It is best to moisturize the whole body from the first moment, with special emphasis on those areas where there is more conflict such as belly and buttocks, applying in these areas the product in circular movements so that its penetration is more effective.
2. Chloasma and spots on the skin. One of the main preoccupations of the premamás, derived from the hormonal alteration, is the hyperpigmentation of the skin. The excess of melanin that occurs during these months can cause on the face some spots known as chloasma.
To avoid the appearance of spots on the skin, the sunscreen must be total. In addition, it is advisable to use light or gel formulas that allow its rapid absorption for women fleeing from that dense feeling on the skin.
The protection against UVA and UVB rays should not be exercised exclusively during the summer months, but should be continued since the sun is dangerous 365 days a year.
3. Fluid retention. The increase in blood and the difficulty in the functioning of the circulatory system during pregnancy means that many women suffer fluid retention during these months. Heaviness in the legs, fatigue and swelling in the ankles are the main signs of retention.
To relieve these discomforts, we recommend many treatments, such as manual lymphatic drainage, through which the lymphatic system is activated and cleanses the body of toxins through gentle massage.
This technique finally provides a respite for future moms who feel exhausted and suffer discomfort throughout the day in their legs and ankles.
4. Extreme care in the feeding. Ham, caffeine or raw fish are some of the big banned during pregnancy, but not the only ones. The salads must be scrupulously washed, the fish must have little amount of mercury and can not miss foods rich in calcium during these months, in order to take care of the possible deterioration of the teeth.
Throughout the 9 months of pregnancy, the intake of fruit should be daily, as well as the consumption of vegetables, vegetables and cereals. But it is from the fourth month of pregnancy is when the future moms must increase their consumption of meat, fish and eggs so that the fetus develops in a healthy way.
Good nutrition should be a habit in all people, but during the months of pregnancy, maternal nutrition should be optimal for mom and baby to be healthy and strong.
