Understand and treat the pregnancy mask on black, matte and mixed skin
At the house of Nubiance , we always take the time to listen to you and advise you. And among the problems on black, matte and mixed skin, there is one that comes up often: that of the pregnancy mask! To explain this skin concern in detail, its origin and the effective treatments to make it disappear, we have devoted an entire article to it!
What is the pregnancy mask?
If you are pregnant and between future mothers, you have probably already heard of the pregnancy mask. you may panic and start to find solutions upstream to avoid damaging your skin.
Also called " chloasma ", the pregnancy mask is the cause of an overproduction of hormones when you are pregnant (logical!). These hormones will play a role on melanin by multiplying it and will create these small brown spots that appear on your face .
Very common in pregnant women, it is nevertheless useful to treat it in order to avoid keeping its spots after the birth of the child. This problem is all the more recurrent in women with black, dark or mixed skin because their skin has more melanin and is in fact likely to mark a little more than Caucasian type skin.
Generally appearing between the 4th and 6th month of pregnancy, the pregnancy mask is easily recognizable on Nubian skin. If you don't have any old spots, you see new ones, and they aren't the result of either acne or sun scarring, it's bound to be the pregnancy mask.
The areas where the pregnancy mask is placed are generally located on the face, in particular on your forehead, your cheekbones, your cheeks or even around your lips.
Prevent the risk of pregnancy mask
Protect yourself from the sun: the role of an SPF
We explained it to you just above, the pregnancy mask is linked to an overproduction of melanin, due to female hormones. Throughout pregnancy, the sun can also have an impact on your skin and accelerate the development of this phenomenon. You must therefore take care to protect your skin from the sun (even if you are not pregnant).
It is therefore recommended to apply a good SPF every day to protect your black, matte and mixed skin. It is necessary to insist on the areas of the face favorable to the pregnancy mask and do not forget to put some on the neck, the décolleté and the hands to avoid future stains.
Once your sunscreen has been applied, it will be essential not to over-exposure. As you know, the sun is a false best friend. So you can take advantage of its rays, but in the shade, for example by wearing a hat, a cap and encouraging the wearing of sunglasses.
Avoiding continuous exposure to the sun and UVA and UVB rays will allow you to slow down the production of melanin and thus avoid the appearance of those famous brown spots that you know so well.
A little advice from our team of experts : also avoid applying perfumes and scented creams directly to your skin. Their alcohol content can make them incompatible with the sun and could attack your skin. Also promote an impeccable lifestyle ( especially pregnant, we don't teach you anything ), making sure to hydrate your body well both from the outside and the inside by drinking plenty of water ( 1.5L per day on average ).
