What Is Pregnancy Glow And How To Maintain It?

Pregnancy glow is not a fantasy during pregnancy. At around the 11th week of pregnancy, hormones coupled with an increased blood volume give a radiant look to the skin. And this is called pregnancy glow.

There are also other reasons for the pregnancy glow that adds shine and brightness to a pregnant woman’s skin, making it simply flawless!


Causes of Pregnancy Glow

Sweating

During pregnancy, the body temperature of a woman rises due to increased body weight and blood volume. Pregnancy also demands a lot causing the body to produce extra sweat. Sweat clears the impurities from the skin, making it look brighter and shinier.


Moisture Retention

A pregnant woman’s skin retains moisture, which contributes to the smoothening of fine lines and wrinkles. This retention of moisture effectively provides smooth skin, adding glow to the skin.

 

Tips to Maintain Pregnancy Glow

To maintain your pregnancy glow for a longer duration, you can follow the following tips in your daily routine:

  • Drinking plenty of water in a day keeps your skin hydrated and moisturized. It adds radiance to your dull skin. Moreover, hydration lowers the risk of water retention in the body that keeps pregnancy healthy and safe.
  • Keep your skin clean by washing your face regularly. It keeps skin moisturized by cleaning excess oil from the skin, preventing acne or other skin-related problems.
  • Use soap and skincare products with a low pH-balanced formulation. It prevents skin from dryness.
  • Get a good amount of sleep. However, a night of good sleep is not easy; still, proper rest and staying stress-free are essential to keep skin glowing and shining.
  • Speak to your doctor about some easy exercises that you can do during pregnancy. Engage yourself in light physical activities that are safe for you and do not strain you as well.

Pregnancy is a period to focus on positivity. Every woman has an idea of what looks good on her; Pamper yourself, take a break and get a good massage therapy or pedicure to get the refined look. However, make sure you are not doing any of those things that may harm you.
