Sesderma routines for pregnancy!

22 November 2021




Get to know Sesderma's recommendations for your skin routine during pregnancy!

If it is true that some women go through pregnancy without noticing major changes in their skin (of the face, at least), the vast majority does notice at least some changes. The skin will be particularly susceptible to the intense hormonal changes that characterize this period. From increased sensitivity, acne tendency or the spots that characterize chloasma, there are several situations that may affect the skin of pregnant women.

The ideal routine for pregnancy in a global way does not exist, but rather the ideal routine for the skin needs of the pregnant woman in question.

 

Another aspect to take into account when idealizing a pregnancy routine, is related to the "prohibited" active ingredients during pregnancy. If it is true that, by definition, a cosmetic product does not have the ability to reach the bloodstream, thus not posing a risk to the baby, there is a more or less a general consensus in not advising certain active ingredients, for the sake of precaution, with emphasis on:

- Retonoids, would be an excellent ally particularly in the signs of aging, but also in the control of hyperpigmentations and in the prevention of obstruction of the hair follicle that is at the base of acne imperfections;

- Salicylic acid, one of our greatest allies in controlling oil and acne tendency;

- Hydroquinone, among others, with more residual uses when compared to those mentioned.

 

In relation to Alpha Hydroxyacids, for example, glycolic acid, although not being advised against in cases where the woman already used products with this ingredient and being perfectly "accustomed" to the renewing effect of the ingredient, in cases where it is intended to start using products with the ingredient for the first time, it is not recommended. This is because usually the skin undergoes a process of adaptation to the ingredient, often marked by phenomena of sensitivity, discomfort or even flaking, which in addition to being uncomfortable, can also aggravate the risk of developing hyperpigmentations, a risk that is already heighten by the hormonal increase. To recap, as long as the active ingredient is not new in the routine and, at concentrations below 10%, there will be no problem in glycolic acid in the routine, always with proper photoprotection care.

 

The issue with parabens is also often raised regardin its to use by pregnant women.Parabens authorised by cosmetic legislation, at authorised concentrations, are proven to be safe and their presence in the formulations is not a reason to advise against the use of these cosmetics during pregnancy.

 

 

Routine suggestions

Being identified as the most frequent skin needs in pregnancy the increased sensitivity, the prevention/reduction of spots and the control of oil/acne tendency, here are some suggestions of routines for these situations:

 

Increased sensitivity sesderma- Increased sensitivity: We suggest actives with soothing and restorative action such as panthenol and a moisturizer such as hyaluronic acid. Without forgetting sun protection, with mild depigmenting actives to prevent hyperpigmentations so frequent during pregnancy.

1 - Hygiene withSespanthenol Foam Cream without soap.

2 – With clean and dry skin apply 1 dose of Sespanthenol Liposomal Serum with a gentle circular massage, in order to promote its absorption.

3 - Hydration with Hyal Hydraderm Facial Cream, ideal for normal to combination skin. If the skin is dry to very dry, we suggest Oceanskin Nourishing Cream.

4 – In the morning routine, finish with the application of sun protection, with Azelac RU Fluid Luminous SPF50that brings together sunscreen, soft depigmenting actives and luminous pigments.

 

Hyperpigmentations sesderma

- Hyperpigmentations: Some of the active ingredients that are usually part of the composition of depigmenting products are not recommended in pregnancy. We suggest a routine with emphasis on tranexamic acid and vitamin C, active with depigmenting properties and totally safe in pregnancy:

1 - Hygiene with Hydraderm TRX Cleansing gel, followed by the tonic of the same range.

2 – With clean and dry skin apply 3-4 drops of Hydraderm TRX Liposomal Serum with a gentle circular massage, in order to promote its absorption.

3 - Hydration with C-VIT in the texture indicated to the skin type in question: Facial cream for normal to dry skin; Luminous fluid for normal to combination skin; Cream Gel for combination to oily skin.

4 – In the morning routine, finish with the application of sun protection, with Azelac RU Fluid Luminous SPF50 that brings together sunscreen, soft depigmenting actives and luminous pigments.

 

Acne tendency sesderma

- Acne tendency: Also here, there are some actives often present in formulations for oily skin and/or with acne tendency, to avoid in pregnancy. We suggest:

1 - Hygiene with Sensyses Cleanser Sebum.

2 – Hydration with Juveses Teens, a moisturizing care for oily skin with acne tendency of hormonal cause.

3 – In the morning routine, finish with the application of sun protection, with Azelac RU Fluid Luminous SPF50that brings together sunscreens, soft depigmenting actives and luminous pigments.

 

natural luminosity sesderma

And for pregnant women who undergo hormonal changes in a "graceful" way, maintaining a healthy and beautiful skin, we suggest a simple beauty routine with moisturizing, antioxidant action that helps to promote the natural luminosity of the skin and prevent hyperpigmentations:

1 - Hygiene with Hidraven Cream Foam Without Soap, followed by hydraderm tonic.

2 - With clean and dry skin apply 3-4 dropsof C-Vit Liposomal Serum with a gentle circular massage, in order to promote its absorption.

3 - Hydration with Hyal Hydraderm Facial Cream, ideal for normal to combination skin. If the skin is dry to very dry, we suggest Oceanskin Nourishing Cream.

4 – In the morning routine, finish with the application of sun protection,with Azelac RU Fluid Luminous SPF50 that brings together sunscreens, soft depigmenting actives and luminous pigments.

Body

What about the body's skin? Generally, the main concern during pregnancy is the prevention and treatment of stretch marks. Sudden changes in body volume often lead to the appearance of stretch marks and, in addition, sagging is extremely frequent in the postpartum period.

For the prevention of these situations, we recommend our range of body care with liposomed actives, which thanks to nanotechnology, penetrate deeper into the skin, ensuring greater effectiveness. We highlight the Estryses Lotion to prevent and reduce stretch marks and the Sesnatura Firming Cream of Breasts and Body.
