Dry skin during pregnancy

Anonymous

I have been struggling with dry patches on my face. I am 4 months pregnant with my second child and this didn't happen the last time. I drink plenty of water and also use emu oil mixed with rose hip oil. In the past these 2 helped but not this time. Did anyone else experience this? What did you do? I'm desperate for facial hydration!

    Try a hydrating toner right after you cleanse your face, then layer on a serum with hyaluronic acid, and seal it all in with your oil or moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid also helps plump up your fine lines, which has been great for me since I can’t use retinol while pregnant or breastfeeding.

    Could be a sensitivity to a food you've been eating more of, or just because of your body changing. Dry patches are a very common symptom of dairy sensitivity...
