A woman's body undergoes many transformations during the nine months of pregnancy.The “glow” of pregnancy isn’t a myth. Thanks to high levels of estrogen and progesterone, along with increased blood volume, you will glow during this time. But as every body is different, the skin is also something which is individualistic and your body may react differently to pregnancy.Sometimes lack of awareness of these common changes leaves women clueless and anxious.
Common Skin Changes that Occur during the entire duration of Pregnancy include-
Stretch marks- The skin on your stomach and breasts stretches to accommodate changes in your body, sometimes leading to white or pink streaks called stretch marks.
You can use lotions and creams to try and prevent or reduce them, and it may also help relieve the dry, itchy skin that occurs along with it.
When: Generally starts coming with the increasing weight which is from the 5th-6th Month ( Second Trimester) of Pregnancy.

Linea nigra- This is the dark line that runs from your naval to your pubic bone. It gets darker during pregnancy but fades soon after.
Acne-Given that teenage acne is triggered by excessive hormones, it’s not surprising you may experience breakouts during pregnancy.
Watch your Sugar Intake during Pregnancy as sudden increase in Sugar levels often leads to Acne and similar Skin Problems. If you tend to have Oily Skin then stick to your Regular Face Wash and try washing your face at least 3-4 times during the day with Cold water.
Varicose and spider veins- The weight of your uterus pressing against large blood vessels can lead to sore, itchy veins, primarily on your legs.
