During pregnancy, our body is transforming which includes your skin as well. While pregnancy can leave some lucky ladies looking gorgeous, stunning with luscious locks and clear complexion, for others, all that extra hormonal activity can have the opposite effect. You may end up suffering from a variety of pregnancy skin issues.

Here are some of the effectual ways to take care of your skin during pregnancy.

1. Oily skin with breakouts

Women face hormonal breakouts during pregnancy as your skin becomes oily because of all the hormonal changes. You mostly experience nastiest breakouts during the first trimester of pregnancy. Imagine having a pimpled face along with morning sickness, yuck!

Remedy

Use such products which contain acne-fighting elements in order to treat hormonal breakouts. Using clarifying cleanser is one perfect idea as it reduces bacteria from skin and helps to fight acne for hours. Apply this 1-2 times a week to get purified and pores free skin. You can also use products which contain glycolic acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, or witch hazel. Get in touch with your doctor before using any of these ingredients!

2. Dry patches

During pregnancy your body gets dehydrated due to which your skin becomes dry and you might start having dry patches and crumbling skin. To fight this challenge, you have to step up your water game.

Remedy

It is suggested to wash your skin with a soap-less rinse-off cleanser, so find such products which contain elements such as conditioners and botanical oils like Sunflower Oils and Avocado oils, and humectants. Use of such products will soothe and moisturize your skin immediately. It will repair your skin’s dryness and will give you a smooth skin.

3. Discoloration

When you are pregnant, the most important thing to protect your skin from, is harmful UV rays. It is possible that your skin becomes hyper-pigmented, as you are progressing through each trimester.

Remedy

To protect your skin from discoloration, apply antioxidants sunscreen products which contain at least SPF 30 and Vitamin C. It is better to use higher SPF sunscreen, if you are going in the midday sun or at the beach.

It is extremely important to wear the right kind of shirts during summers. When choosing a shirt, special attention should be given to the fabric. The shirt material should be such that it wicks sweat and keeps you cool. The design and stitching are equally important. Opt for a shirt that is stylish yet comfortable to wear. A properly tailored shirt is the one that does not wear out easily. Go for cool colors that look pleasant to the eyes in the scorching heat.

Hi ladies! I am back with another latest trend in Pakistani Fashion. Tulip Shalwar has been a hot favourite among women in Pakistan for quite a long time now. It is literally the talk of the town. Women have been discussing it and it has become a media buzz in just a short span of time. So let me ask you a question, does this Tulip Shalwar appeal to you as attractive or as a total fiasco? Well, people might have different opinions depending on their taste in clothing altogether.

On the bright side, these Tulip Shalwars have received both positive and negative as well as funny responses on the social media. They are also known as Dhoti Shalwars. For some, it is completely ridiculous and for some, it is simple and elegant. Well, in my opinion, it is a fad which will disappear as quickly as it has come in the market. Needless to say, dozens of the brands have even started customizing their own styles in these shalwars and have started selling it which are being widely received by the masses. What is your take on it? Are there any other stylish outfits on your list? Do share with me! 🙂
