Motherhood is one of the best experiences in a woman’s life. But, this experience brings enormous challenges in our life as well. During post-partum days, we see lots of changes in our overall skin condition. Some of it is caused by frequent hormonal changes, while some are the results of simple body fatigue from pregnancy and delivery. Sudden dryness, acne outburst, sensitivity, pigmentation or hyperpigmentation are some common post-pregnancy skin issues every woman goes through. Some also complain about skin sagging. Retinoids, salicylic acid or any other skin-friendly acids are a strict no-no during the breastfeeding period. You can’t opt for these effective skin renewal aids for some time. If you want to get back your pre-pregnancy refreshed looking skin, you will need a full-proof skincare routine. Check out our favourite rejuvenating skincare products for newbie moms.
