Of the many physical changes that happen during TTC, skin isn’t really something that people tend too talk much about. But it should be! A woman’s skin can shift pretty drastically during the many phases of TTC, especially while taking medication and going through fertility treatments.
Just as you reinvent a healthier pre-conception diet and supplements, there’s also something to be said for revising your body care routine. Why? Well, not only can this help ward off pregnancy related skin issue later on, it can also help ensure that you and baby are not exposed to potentially harmful chemicals that might be lurking in your medicine cabinet. (You can never be too careful, right?) There’s no one-size-fits-all skin care regimen. One person may have a completely different experience than another based on their genetics and other environmental factors. So knowing what type of skin you have and how sensitive you are to certain things will help best determine what will help sooth and heal.
