How Pregnancy Can Screw With Your Skin

emb
If there's one word you can absolutely associate with pregnancy, it's flux. Everything is in it, especially your body and your hormones. And, your skin is actually vulnerable to some screwy behavior once your pregnancy test reads positive. Instead of freaking out, read up on The Huffington Post's tips on how to get some relief.
One of the main issues it describes is the overdrying of your skin. It's so important to stay hydrated and to moisturize, especially before bed. On top of outlining the best lotions to keep your skin supple, The Huffington Post also spells out how to help hyperpigmentation and a whole host of other epidermis issues. So, you can focus on more important things. You know, like growing a child. (The Huffington Post)
