During the course of pregnancy hormones fluctuate, the immune system is suppressed and a slew of other changes occur in the body. After the baby is born there are additional times of hormonal/bodily fluctuations (including breastfeeding and menstruation) which can impact the state of your skin. This manifests in different ways for everyone, but we commonly see increased dryness, inflammation and, for some, breakouts.
We recommend avoiding chemical-laden products that dry or strip your skin (as well as invasive procedures), as they increase vulnerability to inflammation and other unwanted symptoms. The most effective way to promote healthy skin while experiencing surging hormones is to encourage stability within the skin system by focusing on the fundamental needs of your barrier layer—nourishing and hydrating with micronutrients, essential fatty acids and beneficial bacteria.
This regimen helps to repair depleted barrier function and support the skin as your body recovers. All of the ingredients are strategically chosen to support each layer of the skin system, and the products contain no potential irritants. All of the products are considered safe for both mother and baby while breastfeeding.
