Beautiful and healthy skin is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. But during and after pregnancy, the skin needs special care. In this blog, you will learn how to best care for your skin during and after pregnancy to keep it healthy and glowing.
There is good news – healthy skin can be maintained during and after pregnancy! By following a few simple rules and choosing the right skin care products, you can maintain the beautiful skin you had before pregnancy during and after. It is important that you take extra care to cleanse and nourish your skin regularly in order to create the right conditions for the particularly stressed skin during this time. The skin is not only stressed from the outside, but also from the inside. Use the following tips as a guide to keep your skin resilient, supple and radiantly beautiful.
Important tips for skin care during pregnancy
As the months of pregnancy progress, the pressure on the tissues increases from the inside to the outside of the skin. In addition, stretching forces act especially on the abdominal skin. Therefore, you should effectively support you during this time with a high-quality care routine. Do not use any drying substances when showering and bathing. Make sure you use moisturising shower gels or moisturising bath substances.
The Deep Cleansing Body Wash contains moisturising coconut oil, which, in addition to its deep cleansing properties, also keeps the skin supple. The mild surfactants prevent the skin from drying out and the amino acids contained additionally support the protection of the skin.
The care routine should definitely be continued several times a day with an intensively nourishing body cream.

It is important to know that a body lotion contains much more water and fillers and less active ingredients. Therefore, prefer a body cream such as Surgi Boost Advanced Body Cream during this time. It is certified vegan and naturally free of mineral oils, parabens and microplastics and without conventional preservatives.
It contains a particularly high concentration of natural ingredients, anti-oxidants and active ingredients.
The natural oils have the advantage that they already contain many healthy properties. The combination and high concentration of natural oils additionally boost the effect of sustainable skin care and long-term skin protection!
The ingredients of the Surgi Boost Advanced Body Cream illustrate this nicely.
The South African virgin oil with its long-chain fatty acids provides a lot of moisture right into the deep layers of the skin. However, it also effectively soothes redness and skin irritation, especially in the case of emerging skin cracks, the so-called striae. It nourishes intensively and is therefore also used in baby care. Shea butter is rich in anti-oxidants as well as omega-3 fatty acids and other nourishing properties. The coconut oil and the skin-soothing hemp seed oil (without CBD!) are also responsible for the lasting regeneration of the skin.
The two different hyaluronic acids and the peptide complex are the boosters as active ingredients that support the skin in its firmness and elasticity. In addition, the regeneration processes in the deep layers are boosted.
The skin protection is also sustainably supported with the additional vitamin E and dexpanthenol.
If you have established a skin care routine and adjust it as needed, you can enjoy radiant, healthy skin even after pregnancy.
Post-pregnancy skin care routines
Pregnancy is a wonderful time, but hormonal changes can cause the skin to become softer and saggier. Many mums like to say” the skin no longer has the same tone and has lost firmness”. To help your skin regenerate quickly after pregnancy, a regular skin care routine is essential. It is important that you not only cleanse your skin, but also moisturise it. Use products with urea, which gently removes dead skin cells. The moisture you need can then penetrate unhindered into the deep layers of the skin. This can be provided, for example, by a cream containing hyaluronic acid, which also has moisturising skin oils. The regeneration and cell protection of the skin is ensured by anti-oxidants such as vitamin E or South African virgin oil.
The elasticity can be improved by using creams that contain a peptide complex. These induce the fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin, i.e. your supporting tissue. As essential growth factors, they also regulate pigment formation. This is very helpful in hormone-induced pigmentary shifts, so that they balance out again to the normal skin appearance.
Use a product that also contains dexpanthenol. This, in combination with vitamin E, is excellent for protecting your skin from harmful environmental influences. If you are breastfeeding, it is not uncommon for your breasts to become very tight or cracked. A high-quality certified organic skin oil such as jasmine oil or the cooling Surgi Boost Advanced Body Cream will intensively care for the skin, for example in the case of skin cracks, or can prevent them if necessary. By following these steps, you can ensure that your skin stays healthy and beautiful after pregnancy. By following this regular skin care routine, you can not only moisturise your skin, but also prevent the signs of pregnancy-related skin changes in the long term.

The influence of diet and lifestyle on skin health
During and after pregnancy, it is important to look at your diet and lifestyle to maintain your skin health. A balanced diet rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants is key to healthy skin. These nutrients help to strengthen your skin and give it elasticity. In addition, a diet rich in fish oil can help nourish the skin during and after pregnancy. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids also prevent pregnancy depression.
Also try to drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin at least 2.5l per day. In addition, make sure you get a balance of activity to reduce stress and support your skin health. With a little patience and the right care, you can keep your skin healthy and beautiful during and after pregnancy.
Using cosmetics during and after pregnancy
Pregnancy is a special time for many women, with many changes taking place. Your skin is one of the first signs of these changes. During and after pregnancy, women’s skin may change, but it is not necessarily worse than before. However, during and after pregnancy, your skin may deserve more care and attention. With the right care, you can help keep your skin looking beautiful during and after pregnancy. It is important to take care of your skin by giving it the right care. Avoid products that contain perfumes, dyes, chemicals and other harmful ingredients. Also use products that are specially formulated for sensitive skin, such as those that contain mild surfactants and amino acids in the cleanser, like BEAUTÉ OMAR’s Seria Cutanoues Deep Cleansing Body Wash. Also use special products that help reduce tension and pulling of the skin during and after pregnancy. These include body oils that help to moisturise and protect the skin, and special creams that help to restore the skin’s natural elasticity.
What you need to know about skin care products
During and after pregnancy, women face special challenges with their bodies. But with the right products, you can keep your skin in tip-top shape and protect it from the negative effects of hormonal changes. There are some important things to keep in mind when caring for your skin during and after pregnancy. Avoid products with parabens, phthalates, sulphates and synthetic fragrances as these can cause your skin to dry out and become irritated. Instead, use a mild, natural cleanser and moisturising cream. Also avoid any products that disinfect the skin or clog pores, as these can lead to blemishes. Seria Cutaneous avoids all of these and uses a mild preservative system called Pentylene Glycol. The fragrance in the creams, which is reminiscent of chamomile-orange, is allergen-free.
It is no secret that the skin needs a lot of care during and after pregnancy. A balanced diet, regular skin care and avoiding external influences are all you need to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. With the right care, you can keep your skin looking and feeling radiant during and after pregnancy. The key is to take good daily care of your skin, allowing it to regenerate and renew itself. Be consistent and take care of your skin morning and night with gentle cleansers designed specifically for pregnant women. All the above ingredients are included in the Seria Cutaneous certified creams.
