Stretching, or striae, is one of the most common phenomena during pregnancy. As a result of hormonal effects, as well as stretching the skin of the growing fetus in the thickness of the skin, tears of elastin fibers occur, forming a kind of skeleton of the skin; In the future, tears are replaced by a connective tissue. Unfortunately, their appearance depends on the features of the structure of the skin, its elasticity. You may not be able to fully insure yourself against the appearance of stretch marks, but significantly improve the condition of the skin and reduce the likelihood of their appearance on the strength of each woman.

In summer, the face cream should contain SPF 25-30 (and more, but these products have a denser texture and are not always well tolerated by the skin).
In winter, there will be enough SPF 10-15. For the body, use the means with SPF 15-20.

How to reduce the cream during pregnancy?
The face cream is selected according to the needs of your skin. In the winter time, apply a cream with a rather dense texture, which protects the skin from wind and temperature fluctuations. It should include vegetable oils, vitamins C and E.

Against the background of pregnancy, extended capillaries appeared on the face. Now I have already given birth and would like to address this problem. What can be done?
Permanently expanded capillaries can be removed with a vascular laser. Under the influence of the laser, the vessel coagulates (sticks together), blood ceases to flow in it, and as a result the skin over the glued vessels acquires a normal color. Before carrying out this fool, you can use a corrective cosmetic pencil of a green hue (green color masks redness). To prevent the appearance of new enlarged capillaries, use soft cosmetic products, choose creams marked "For skin with couperose" or "For skin with rosacea." Avoid ultraviolet radiation, sudden temperature changes (baths, saunas, cosmetic procedures with steaming the skin), hot, spicy and spicy food, alcohol. All these factors increase the flow of blood to the face and can provoke the appearance of new dilated vessels.
