Prenatal Hormonal Changes On Your Skin

Prenatal Hormonal Changes On Your Skin

Dry and dull skin on bad days – we all have them. But the case may be worse for pregnant mothers. 

Have you begun to notice the skin changes during this time in your life, such as acne, dark patches or heightened sensitivity? The core reason for such changes in the skin is due to the hormonal changes and blood circulation in the body, and these skin conditions usually subside after delivery.

However, that is not to say that they can’t be treated during pregnancy.

First, let us look at the best and most coveted skin change mothers face in their pregnancies: The pregnancy glow.

 

Pregnancy Glow

Yes! The best kind of skin change is waking up every day to beautiful and radiant skin. The term “pregnancy glow” holds true for all you new mothers who will be complimented by people on the streets on your glowing skin. During this stage, your skin appears dewy and glowing.

Why does this happen?

This is because the process of pregnancy increases the blood circulation and oxygen delivery of the body, leading to increased blood flow and oxygen to your skin and thus making it look glowing and radiant.

Tips to maintain the glow

The pregnancy glow is natural for sure however you can maintain the glow and even enhance it with facials.

Besides facials, face masks work perfectly too! You can apply aloe vera combined with rose water on your skin to keep your skin soft, smooth and glowing. All you need to do is mix 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel with 1 tablespoon of rose water and apply it on your skin. Wash this face mask off after 20 minutes. This face mask will add a boost to your already glowing skin.

Another way to maintain the pregnancy glow is a deep, pampering facial treat! Our signature Marine Detox Facial contains marine algae – which rich in antioxidants and amino acids. It supports cell regeneration, treating and rebalancing oily and congested skin while delivering a boost of nutrients to the skin.

Try your first facial with us at only $59.00 (U.P. $119.00)!

Besides the well-known benefits of having a little bun in your oven, many mums have come forward with the following skin problems following their pregnancies. Let’s take a look at how we can best solve them for clearer, smoother skin:

 

Mask of Pregnancy

If you begin to notice dark patches appearing on your skin out of nowhere, don’t panic! It is not because of any other condition, it is just one of the effects of pregnancy that shows up on your skin known as Melasma or Chloasma.

Why does this happen?

During pregnancy, your body goes through an increase in hormone production. This also affects the melanin production (pigmentation) on your skin, leading to dark patches on nose, cheeks, forehead or the area above your upper lips.

How to treat it

The first and foremost step is to remember that sunscreen might not entirely stop melasma, but it can reduce its likelihood. Wear SPF 30 sunscreen before you leave your house and reapply it every 2 hours. Choose a sunscreen that is formulated for sensitive skin and is pregnancy safe without any harmful ingredients. Sunscreen is an important part of your skincare that will protect your skin.

Here is a  fun DIY facial you can try – packed with Vitamin C! Mix 1 tablespoon of orange peel powder with 1 tablespoon of rose water to apply on your skin. Wash it off after 15 minutes with lukewarm water to reduce the appearance of the dark patches. The results may not show overnight, but consistency is key.

 

Acne

Acne, pimples or zits is another skin change that you may notice. No one likes having acne, and luckily there are some ways to take care of it. Besides seeking comfort in that it will be subsided after your delivery, seek professional acne treatment or give our DIY facial below a try to keep your inflammation under control in the meantime.

Why does this happen?

Due to pregnancy, your skin starts to produce more oil resulting in acne and pimples all over your skin. If your skin is already sensitive, the severity of acne is likely to be higher, hence going to a dermatologist and having appropriate a dermatologist-approved skincare routine would help to keep acne at bay.

How to treat it

If you want to regulate the oil production on your skin and treat acne at the same time, then you can use a face mask with just one ingredient for all you busy mamas: Apply a thin layer of raw honey on your face and wash it off after 15 minutes for clear and healthy skin.

Tip: Raw manuka honey is the best kind of honey for acne.

 

Stretch Marks

By now you would have heard all around you how pregnancy and stretch marks go hand in hand. The good news is stretch marks are easy to fade if spotted early!

Why does this happen?

During pregnancy, your body expands and shrinks, and this causes the underlying skin to stretch. This then leads to the appearance of red or purple lines on your skin.

How to treat it

Moisturising is the key to reducing the appearance of stretch marks. You can use store products which are specifically formulated to treat stretch marks or you can use a home remedy.

All you need to do is take a mix of vitamin E oil and olive oil and apply it on your stretch marks every day. Slowly you will notice that the stretch marks are fading. 

Ask us about our Stretchmark Repair treatment, a sustained dermal-epidermal restructuring of damaged tissue that improves skin elasticity.

Book your treatment with us and watch the stretch marks quickly fade away at just $169.00 (60 mins)!

Sensitive Skin

If you are feeling that your skin is becoming sensitive, then you can make changes in your skincare routine to help you manage sensitive skin.

Why does this happen?

With so many changes your body is going through, especially during the prenatal pregnancy time, it is not surprising that your skin is sensitive. Hence, using dermatologist-recommended products free of fragrances, preservatives and any harsh ingredients is the way to go.

Sensitive skin usually goes away after pregnancy, hence it is best to use minimal products on your skin during this time.

How to treat it

You can apply natural aloe vera gel on your skin to calm and soothe your skin. Wash it off after 15 minutes and use this mask twice a week to reveal smoother skin.

 

Varicose Veins

If you are noticing blue or green coloured veins making an appearance on your skin, especially your legs, this is yet another effect of pregnancy. 

Why does this happen?

This occurs when your body is trying to compensate for the blood that is going to the growing baby. Thus, attempting to regulate the blood circulation of your body is the key to managing Varicose veins.

How to treat it

There are no masks or creams for this condition, the secret is in physical exercise.

Engage in low to moderate impact workout routine to reduce varicose veins. Also, avoid any vigorous exercises and avoid standing for a long time continuously.

At BMB, we believe in providing only the best for our pregnant mums, to promote comfort, wellness and support in every stage of your pregnancy, and our maternity stockings gives just that!

Aggravation of existing skin conditions

An important point to keep in mind is that during the prenatal pregnancy stage, many skin conditions that you had prior to the pregnancy might show up or be aggravated. Take acne or eczema, for example. Going to your dermatologist from the beginning of the pregnancy with your complete skin history is the best way to keep your skin conditions under check and healthy.

Note: When it comes to skin treatments or any ingredient that you put on your skin, proceed with caution and consult your doctor before you do.

Pregnant Skin Woes: Stretch Marks

Pregnant Skin Woes: Stretch Marks

No matter what anyone tells you – it’s a normal effect. 

As your body changes to accommodate your growing baby, you may notice stretch marks appearing. Stretch marks are caused by the changes in the elastic supportive tissues that lies beneath the skin. Most often appears on the abdomen area during the later stages of pregnancy as your belly expands to a maximum capacity to accommodate your growing baby. Some women also get them on their buttocks, thighs and hips.

Though there are no clinical evidence that vitamin E cream, cocoa butter, aloe vera lotion or olive oil etc. are actually effective in helping prevent these marks, they are great natural ways in preventing & relieving the itch that may occur when the skin stretches, & helps keep your pregnancy stressed-skin stays moist & hydrated.

 

Consider a change in your diet

Another good way to combat these marks is with a vitamins-rich & mineral-rich diet. Pregnant women need vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc & essential fatty acids, which will help to support skin’s integrity during pregnancy. Meat, fish & poultry contains good source of dietary zinc, while oily fish, kale, spinach and salad greens are rich in essential fatty acids.

Eating sensibly to avoid gaining too much weight (in most cases about 25-35 pounds) and gain it slowly over time, is also thought to reduce the risk of stretch marks.

 

Spend more time outdoors

Sunlight is the best natural source of vitamin D. Catch some natural vitamin D while taking your early morning walk in the garden but do remember to lube on sunblock to protect against skin pigmentation.

Though you won’t be able to banish stretch marks altogether, they will be less noticeable about 6 to 12 months after childbirth. As pigmentation fades, they generally become lighter than the surrounding skin.

 

Be wary of ingredients in skincare products

Avoid over the counter topical creams as most of them contains Retin-A, which is not safe for the baby if you are breastfeeding. Do read product labels carefully before purchase. Should the marks still bother you after pregnancy, it’s best to speak to a dermatologist. Always seek professional medical advice of your doctor in connection with any questions and issues you may have. All content here should be considered as a reference and opinion only.

Therapeutic massage hitting the spot for kids

Therapeutic massage hitting the spot for kids

More parents opting for this non-invasive treatment for their kids instead of Western medication, say TCM clinics.

Small children are apt to object to swallowing yucky-tasting medicine and they most definitely protest against needles, but parents are finding there is a form of treatment they do not seem to mind as much.

Tuina, or Chinese therapeutic massage, is non-invasive and does not have to hurt.

Believing it can treat a range of illnesses and boost their children’s well-being, parents are taking to the paediatric version in droves.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) clinics, which offer tuina alongside acupuncture and herbal treatments, have noticed a slow but steady rise in the number of young customers over the past three or four years.

It is not just for when they are sick, as parents believe xiao er tuina can strengthen a healthy child’s immune system and general well-being. Some use tuina to address colic (uncontrollable crying for no apparent reason), frequent bed-wetting or when the child is not growing well, never mind that there is no proven benefit to fall back on.

Since 2012, TCM chain Eu Yan Sang International has seen a “fourfold rise” in the number of takers for paediatric tuina who are aged below 12, said a spokesman.

“Approximately 85 per cent of them are returning clients,” he said.

Yu Guo Chinese Physician , which started in 1986 and claims to be the biggest private paediatric tuina centre here, has had to hire more TCM physicians and now has a team of more than 10, said physician Koh Tin Yock. Further expansion has not been ruled out.

Other clinics, such as Herbal-Basic TCM clinic and Ma Kuang Healthcare group, also reported rising demand for paediatric tuina.

New TCM clinics and services have also emerged in recent years, adding to the supply pool.

Urbanrehab, which offers physiotherapy, hand therapy and other services, started offering TCM treatments, including paediatric tuina, when its TCM physician Lim Xiang Jun came on board in 2014.

Parents often opt for paediatric tuina for infants and very young children as it is a non-invasive method, say TCM physicians.

“The parents are afraid that their young child may be taking too much medication or it could be the child refusing medication,” said TCM physician Neo Min Jun of the Eu Yan Sang TCM clinics in Chinatown and Simei.

Pricing manager Chua Sing Ling, 36, is one such parent.

She tries to take her two sons, aged five months and three years, for paediatric tuina twice a month to keep them in good health.

Her second son received tuina therapy when he was less than a month old as he had jaundice, colic and a cough – and she did not want to give him too much oral medication at that age.

She believes the tuina worked, though she has no proof.

TCM physicians say paediatric tuina works best on children under six years old, when the energy or qi system of the child is still developing.

“By the time he is six, the system will be more matured and different treatment protocols will be required to access the qi system,” said Urbanrehab’s Mr Lim.

Paediatric tuina uses the same principles as acupuncture, in which fine needles are inserted at specific points in the body to help unblock energy channels. But in tuina, gentle massage instead of needles is used to activate the various points.

In TCM, the body is seen as having invisible energy channels known as meridians, through which qi or vital energy circulates. Illness or pain occurs when the flow is disrupted.

TCM espouses the belief that paediatric massage improves overall health by strengthening a child’s immune system. The child is less lethargic and has a better appetite. In turn, this promotes growth in children, said physician Neo.

“We believe that when there is pain or illness, it is because the qi flow in a certain part of the body is not good, thus allowing pathogens to get into the body,” she said.

“For example, if a child has a cough, tuina would help to improve the qi flow in his lungs.”

She said that in some children, there may be results after just one session – the child is calmer, can eat better and sleep better.

Many studies have been done in China on the benefits of paediatric tuina, she said, but these are not rigorous scientific studies.Those with serious illnesses, like a high fever of, say, 40 deg C, should first head to a Western doctor, she added.

Ms Neo, who has a double degree in biomedical sciences and TCM, said paediatric tuina can help with general issues that affect a child’s health but on which Western medication may not be effective. For example, TCM believes tuina can help with bladder control and teeth grinding at night.

Before the baby arrives

Before the baby arrives

When to sign up for antenatal classes and tour hospitals? Experts share health tips and must do’s.

WEEK 4: Take a folic acid supplement, and quit bad habits

If you are not on folic acid, start now. Ideally, you should have built up your stores at least a month before trying to conceive.

This B vitamin protects your newborn against neural tube defects such as spina bifida, said Dr Tan Wei Ching, a senior consultant at the department of obstetrics and gynaecology at Singapore General Hospital.

Cut bad habits, such as smoking and excessive drinking, said Dr Law Wei Seng, a consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.

These habits can cause complications like stillbirth, premature delivery and miscarriage. They also put your child at risk of birth defects, as well as learning and behavioural problems later in life, Dr Law added.

 

WEEK 6: Book your first antenatal appointment

Your gynaecologist will do an ultrasound examination to confirm your baby’s size and if he is in the right location, said Dr Tan.Do not delay this visit beyond week 12. Certain screening tests, such as that for Down syndrome, are usually done between week 11 and 14.

 

WEEK 8 : Beat morning sickness

That queasy feeling usually strikes between week 8 and 10, and should ease after week 12, said Dr Tan.

To keep nausea at bay, she suggests eating small regular meals throughout the day and snacking on plain crackers and biscuits. It also helps to sip on hot ginger tea and avoid triggers, such as spicy food.

But talk to your doctor if you have such severe morning sickness that you can’t keep food or fluids down.

 

WEEK 16: Sign up for antenatal classes

This is the perfect time to attend workshops on childbirth and parenthood – with your husband, of course. Topics include managing labour, breastfeeding and common newborn issues.

Such classes are especially helpful if you prefer hands-on practice, said Ms Yasa Yong Nyuk Yin, a senior lactation consultant at Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.

 

WEEK 18: Firm up confinement plans

Do you need an extra pair of hands or someone to prepare meals? You will need ample time to find a suitable confinement nanny or meal caterer, advised Ms Wong Boh Boi, assistant director (clinical services) of Thomson Parentcraft Centre at Thomson Medical Centre.

 

WEEK 20: Pamper yourself

A soothing prenatal massage with gentle strokes can help improve blood circulation, reduce swelling and relieve stress and fatigue, said Ms Mythi Ally Vijay, managing director of Babies Bellies Javanese Massage and Spa.

But do get the green light from your doctor first, especially if you are spotting, or have a low-lying placenta or other medical conditions.

 

WEEK 24: Tour the hospitals

Make appointments with a few maternity hospitals to check out their delivery suites, suggests Ms Yong. This allows you to compare the services, facilities and prices. During your tour, take note of where you should go and who to approach on the day of admission.

 

WEEK 28: Draw up a birth plan

Work out the nitty-gritty details, including pain management and other requests, such as skin-to-skin contact with your baby immediately after birth, advised Dr Law.

Outline your plan in the following order: labour, delivery and immediate postpartum. Keep it simple and within one typed page so it is easy for the doctor and midwives to read.

Bear in mind, though, that this is just a wish list; your doctor has to do what’s best for you on the day of delivery, especially in an emergency.

 

WEEK 30: Consider cord-blood banking

If both you and your baby are in good health, the late second trimester or early third trimester is a good time to think about cord-blood banking, said Dr Tan.

This procedure saves and stores a newborn’s blood from the umbilical cord, which contains stem cells that could be used to treat medical conditions in the future. There are three private cord-blood banks here.

While some parents see this as a form of “insurance” for their child, Dr Tan pointed out that the probability of someone developing a disease that is treatable with his own cord blood is “very low”.

Or, consider donating your baby’s cord blood to the non-profit public Singapore Cord Blood Bank. Your kind act may save someone who needs a haematopoietic stem-cell transplant.

 

WEEK 37: Pack your hospital bag

Besides toiletries and other essentials, your bag should contain important documents – antenatal records, blood-test results, identification documents, as well as your marriage certificate for birth registration and claims, advised Ms Yong. You may want to take along health supplements and nipple cream. Consider packing your breast pump so the nurses or lactation consultants can help you with latch-on problems, said Ms Yong.

 

WEEK 39: Count down to D-day.

Check if you have:

  • stocked up on baby essentials, such as diapers and feeding gear;
  • prepared breastfeeding items like a breast pump, nursing bras, nursing pads and nipple cream;
  • confirmed a confinement plan;
  • packed your hospital bag; and
  • planned your route to the hospital.

Watch for signs of labour, including painful contractions, clear fluid gushing down the leg or red, sticky mucus, said Dr Law. If in doubt, contact your midwife or doctor.

Firm, gentle strokes keep your baby happy

Firm, gentle strokes keep your baby happy

Massaging your baby has many benefits, but you could end up stressing her if you make these mistakes, as Eveline Gan finds out.

Step-by-step YouTube instructions, check. Nicely-scented oil and room, check. Soothing music, check.

You have put together all the elements needed for a massage, which has been known to help babies relax and sleep better, enhance their brain development and bond with their parents.

So, why doesn’t your little one enjoy your affectionate strokes?

Experts from the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM) point out eight bad moves you may be making:

1. You schedule a massage on your terms.

Do not impose on your baby if she is not in the right mood. This can be stressful on the developing brain and nervous system, said Canada- based IAIM trainer Sylvie Hetu.

Your child may be receptive in the morning, after a bath or before bedtime. Always watch her cues before starting, said Ms Margo Kilborn, president of IAIM.

A “yes” is usually accompanied by good eye contact and a relaxed body posture, smiles and some babbling. Fussiness, lack of eye contact and crying indicate “no”.

2 .Your strokes are too light.

Giving a gentle rubdown does not mean that you do not apply pressure. Research has shown that babies do not fancy light touches, which tend to be ticklish and rev up the nervous system, said Ms Hetu.

A gentle but firm touch is calming, so parents are taught to use the entire hand or palm when they massage their baby, she added.

Watch for signs of discomfort to see if you are applying too little or too much pressure on your baby, and adjust accordingly, said Ms Kilborn.

LOSING FOCUS

Distraction is one of the greatest problems… When concentration keeps getting cut off, it breaks some processes in your baby’s brain. That can affect her capacity to learn to concentrate and focus later on.

MS SYLVIE HETU, a Canada-based trainer with the International Association of Infant Massage, on how notification alerts on the parent’s mobile phone or video sounds can ruin the massage experience for baby.

3. You get someone else to massage your baby.

The parent-child connection is important for your baby’s social, emotional and brain development, said Ms Kilborn.

At IAIM, parents are taught that every massage session is a “special time” for them to bond with their babies, not an activity to be undertaken by other adults, like the maid.

“The bonding between parent and child is as important as the massage technique,” said Ms Hetu.

“You disturb that bond when you allow someone else, other than yourself or your spouse, to have this intimate activity with your baby.”

Worse, you may also unwittingly teach your child that it is okay to be touched by strangers in an intimate way, she added.

4. You learn massage techniques from YouTube videos.

Infant massage is not something that you can perfect overnight by watching videos, said the experts.

Said Ms Kilborn: “Some babies like longer massages. Others like it short and sweet. Parents must observe the cues from their baby.”

5. You give baby a rubdown while looking at your tablet.

“Distraction is one of the greatest problems,” said Ms Hetu, adding that notification alerts on your mobile phone or video sounds can ruin the experience.

“When concentration keeps getting cut off, it breaks some processes in your baby’s brain. That can affect her capacity to learn to concentrate and focus later on.”

Ideally, you should massage your child in a quiet place where she has your undivided attention, said Ms Kilborn.

Dim the lights, undress baby down to her diaper and put her on a mat or towel on the floor. The room temperature should be kept at about 25 deg C. You can play soft, soothing music in the background.

6. You use essential oils.

Never use massage oils with a strong scent, especially if your baby is below six months old. Do not use essential oils as some studies suggest that they can be dangerous to a baby’s nervous system, said Ms Hetu.

Use a cold-pressed, unscented vegetable oil such as grapeseed or sunflower oil instead, said Ms Kilborn.

7. You try to massage a fussy baby.

While studies show that babies who are massaged regularly cry less, sleep better and are generally less colicky, you should not do so when they are crying.

“When baby is crying, her body releases stress hormones. If you massage her, you will stress her even more,” said Ms Hetu.

Instead, soothe your child by meeting her needs first: Is she hungry? Has she soiled her diaper or is it time for a nap?

For optimal benefits, massage her at least once a day or as frequently as she likes, but not when she is crying or cranky, said Ms Kilborn.

8. You stop massaging baby when she is four months old.

The IAIM experts said parents can continue to give their older kids massages – with adjustments at different stages – because a loving human touch helps them become emotionally and socially well- adjusted adults.

IAIM-certified instructor Betty Lee said newborns and premature babies can also benefit from a massage. Just make sure you get the green light from your doctor and learn the correct techniques from a certified infant-massage instructor.
