PREGNANCY AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE SKIN
Prevention is always your best bet.
Women are most vlunerable during pregnancy and the disconforts of symptoms vary from person to person. Women's bodies are subjected to many changes, both before and after pregnancy, which affect them physically and emotionally and NATURA BISSÉ provides the ideal products that focus on the primary needs of the mother-to-be at a time when pampering is a well deserved gift.
NATURA BISSÉ recommends the following for this wonderful period in a woman's life:
DERMAREPAIR and Rosa Mosqueta Oil for stretch marks. Areas such as the abdomen, the thighs the hips and the bust area are subjected to tension throughout the pregnancy, so it is common to develop stretch marks. The constant and daily use of highly nourishing formulations both during and after the pregnancy reinforce the skin’s elasticity, improving suppleness and firmness.
Formulas that are rich in proteic elements such as natural elastin amino acids help restore elasticity while Pumpkin peptides prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers. (DERMAREPAIR).
Repairing oils such as ROSA MOSQUETA OIL or amaranth oil are highly nourishing to the skin as they contain skin-identical lipids.
NB•CEUTICAL, VITAMIN C, ESSENTIAL SHOCK, GLYCOLINE help prevent dark spots and an increase of facial hyper-pigmentation.
The face is particularly prone to dehydration and ‘Chloasma’ (dark spots that appear on the face, forehead and neck) also known as the ‘pregnancy mask’, caused by hormonal changes that naturally occur during pregnancy. Sun exposure can trigger or worsen the appearance of these darks spots. Broad spectrum sunscreens (SPF 30 DAILY DEFENSE OIL FREE FLUID and SPF 50 LUMINOUS SHIELD) help prevent the appearance of Chloasma. In order to diminish the size and intensity of these dark spots, it is important to include treatment serums that contain ingredients that inhibit the formation of melanin such as Kojic Acid and Ascorbic Acid (INTENSIVE LIGHTENING COMPLEX** and C+C VITAMIN COMPLEX) or lightening and illuminating ingredients such as those found in oxygenating treatments (OXYGEN CREAM). We also suggest including exfoliating products to enhance the efficacy of the lightening treatment (GLYCO EXTREME PEEL).
** INTENSIVE LIGHTENING COMPLEX is safe to use before and after, but not during pregnancy.
SPA NEURO-AROMATHERAPY Professional Treatments. In addition to the previously recommended products, it is a good idea to visit a SPA or Beauty Salon both during and after the pregnancy. Plan for a gentle treatment specifically designed for pregnancy. These types of aesthetic rituals are focused exclusively on the primary needs of the mother-to-be. (Ask for the MATERNAL CARESS TREATMENT by NATURA BISSE at your local spa).
After pregnancy we recommend you request an evaluation in order to tailor different massage techniques, postural re-education exercises, and facial and body treatments specifically suited to your needs.
