Pregnancy is such a miraculous and wonderful experience. However, it can also be a struggle, as one needs to be extra careful with every little thing she does. A pregnant woman encounters a lot of changes in her body and these changes also include skin problems that can be quite bothersome. Here are the most common skin conditions in pregnancy:
1. Melasma or Hyperpigmentation – the darkening of the skin caused by an increased production of melanin while pregnant, which results to brown patches on the face and body.
Prevention is key when treating melasma. Avoid the sun as much as possible and use sunscreen to prevent existing spots from getting darker.
