Your Guide to the Perfect Pregnancy Glow
Congratulations to all the Moms-to-Be! As we know, pregnant women have a lot of changes going on inside their bodies. In addition to the beautiful bundle of joy growing inside their bellies, women also experience a number of stressful, internal discomforts during pregnancy (morning sickness, swollen feet, achy back, oh my!). But let’s not overlook the effects those hormonal changes pregnant women experience have on their appearance. In fact, the New York Times cited a study showing about 40 percent of pregnant women get acne. Another study found about 67 percent of skin changes had been affecting new mothers’ confidence and health.
Since hormonal changes often cause dryness, breakouts, hyperpigmentation, flaky skin and stress, there’s never a time you’ll need a spa day more than when you’re pregnant. However, it’s important to treat pregnancy skincare safely. Our Beauty Lounge Medical Spa specialists have created a customized Pregnancy Menu, inspired by the founder’s Shawnda Dorantes MSN, APRN, FNP-C pregnancy, full of treatments for all of the expecting mamas in the San Marcos area, helping them relieve stress and pamper their baby bump while keeping their unborn child safe. Read on to find out which of our pregnancy-safe treatments excite you!
