Understanding Monsoon Skin Challenges During Pregnancy

The monsoon season presents unique challenges for your pregnant skin:

  • Increased Humidity: This can lead to clogged pores, breakouts, and a greasy complexion.
  • Fluctuating Temperatures: Sudden changes in temperature can disrupt your skin's natural moisture barrier, leading to dryness, flakiness, and irritation.
  • Pregnancy Skin Sensitivity: Hormonal changes can make your skin more reactive and prone to allergies.
  • Fungal Infections: The dampness increases the risk of fungal infections like athlete's foot and ringworm.

Your Monsoon Pregnancy Skincare Routine: A Step-by-Step Guide

Monsoon skincare routine for pregnant women
  1. Cleansing:
    • Cleanse your face twice daily with a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser suitable for your skin type.
    • Avoid harsh soaps or cleansers that can strip your skin's natural oils.
    • If you have oily skin, look for a cleanser with a gentle ingredient like aloe vera to control excess oil production.
    • For dry skin, opt for a hydrating cleanser with hyaluronic acid or glycerin.
    • Try the Softsens range of Natural Cream Bars that are enriched with gentle natural cleansers that’ll leave skin softer and smoother than ever.
  2. Exfoliation:
    • Exfoliate once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.
    • Use a gentle scrub with natural ingredients like oatmeal or sugar.
    • Avoid harsh physical exfoliants that can irritate your skin.
    • If you have sensitive skin, opt for a chemical exfoliant with lactic acid or glycolic acid.
  3. Toning:
    • Use an alcohol-free toner after cleansing to restore your skin's pH balance and prepare it for subsequent products.
    • Look for a toner with hydrating ingredients like rose water or aloe vera.
  4. Moisturizing:
    • Moisturize twice a day to keep your skin hydrated and supple.
    • Choose a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that won't clog your pores, such as the Softsens Moisturizing Sorbet that’s made with vitamin-rich oils of almond, wheat germ, olive and mango butter to deeply hydrate and nourish dry skin.
    • If you have dry skin, look for a richer moisturizer with milk cream, shea butter or coconut oil.
