Have you ever touched your skin and felt rough, dry patches on certain areas? Or did you find that certain areas in your face produce more sebum than others? Well, chances are, you have an uneven skin texture, a condition that is likely to exacerbate during pregnancy. Some of the other signs of an uneven skin texture during pregnancy include patchiness, a coarse feeling, visible fine lines and wrinkles, and enlarged open pores. 

But don’t despair, because, on the bright side, the treatment of an uneven skin texture doesn’t need a lot of extensive work. With a heavy dose of TLC, including exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, and plenty of moisture, your skin will be back to looking at its best in no time.

Let’s check out more skincare tips for uneven skin texture and the best products that will help you achieve a smooth and radiant pregnancy glow.

What Causes Uneven Skin Texture During Pregnancy?

Before we jump into how to remedy your rough skin, let’s look at some of the causes of it in the first place.

  • Hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy can lead to abnormal production of sebum and opening of your skin pores leading to bumpy skin.
  • Using potentially irritating skincare ingredients like denatured alcohol can also contribute to dry and rough skin.
  • Prolonged UVA exposure damages the collagen fibres in your skin, leading to a rough and dry skin tone.

Over-exfoliating your skin with chemical exfoliants, such as BHAs can also cause redness in your skin, further contributing to dryness and a feeling of tightness.

Exfoliate With Plant-based AHAs To Tackle Uneven Skin Texture

Exfoliating your skin with AHAs helps trigger the natural renewal process of your skin and reveals younger and new skin cells that make your overall complexion appear healthy and even-toned. Moreover, AHAs help reduce the formation of melanin on your skin, further reducing hyperpigmentation.

For best results, use The Moms Co.’s natural coffee-cranberry face scrub, which is infused with plant-based AHAs and natural antioxidants, such as coffee, vitamin C, and aloe vera, that potently remove dead skin cells, tighten enlarged skin pores, and enhance the radiance and texture of your skin. 

Use A Vitamin C Serum In Your AM Routine

Vitamin C exhibits both antioxidant as well as anti-inflammatory properties and is beneficial in repairing existing skin damage, thereby helping you achieve a smoother and more radiant complexion. 

Additionally, vitamin C helps block sun damage by neutralising free radicals and helps rebuild your skin’s texture by stimulating collagen production. Applying a vitamin C serum in your AM routine is highly recommended by skin experts as its antioxidant properties help restore the photoprotectant levels of your skin and reduce your exposure to UV light. 

You may consider incorporating The Moms Co.’s natural face serum with 10% of vitamin C. Thye best part is that the face serum also contains additional antioxidants like ferulic acid that increase the stability of vitamin C and help revive your complexion to reveal a clear-looking and smoother skin texture.

Moisturise With Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a potent moisture-booster and helps replenish your skin to give you a more even-toned complexion. In fact, hyaluronic acid should be your go-to skincare ingredient when it comes to hydrating your skin and increasing its moisture levels. 

Regular application of hyaluronic acid also helps supplement collagen production in your skin, thus slowing down the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, and revealing a more plump and soft complexion.

For best results, opt for The Moms Co.’s natural age control day cream that contains natural hydrating boosters such as bakuchiol, green tea extracts, sea buckthorn oil, and hyaluronic acid.

These ingredients have rich moisturising properties that help retain water in your skin, repair and rejuvenate it, and smooth out your skin tone to reveal a younger-looking and nourished skin.

Protect Your Skin Against Harmful UV Exposure

The only way you can keep your skin looking healthy and soft is by proactively applying sunscreen, every day of the year. This is because prolonged sun exposure can make your skin bumpy, and parched, and make it appear dull. Hence, you should use sunscreen with at least an SPF of 45+ every day, and also reapply it every two hours when you are out. 

Since physical sunscreens are unsafe to use during pregnancy, you may opt for The Moms Co.’s natural mineral-based sunscreen with protective ingredients like zinc oxide, licorice, and chamomile extracts that offer broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays, prevent redness and dark spots and soothe inflammatory skin conditions like acne and hyperpigmentation. 

Take Care Of Your Hands And Feet

Don’t leave out your poor hands and feet during skincare, they deserve some TLC too. Plus, your hands and feet are more prone to getting affected by environmental insults like UV light and pollutants and hence you must moisturise diligently to protect them. 

To be on the safer side, use The Moms Co.’s natural body lotion that contains protectants like shea butter, rosehip oil, chamomile oil, and rose oil, which readily absorb into your skin to deliver a hefty dose of hydration and also form a protective layer on your skin’s surface. 


While an uneven skin texture during pregnancy can be difficult to deal with, these skincare tips will definitely help you achieve a healthier complexion. Make sure to incorporate all the skincare products that we mentioned above to get rid of your bumpy and rough skin texture. 

All these products are pregnancy-safe and if used regularly will help you achieve a soft, smooth, and even-toned complexion.
