All of the changes your body is going through during pregnancy may give you a beautiful glow. For many expecting moms, pregnancy can cause some challenging skin issues. The good news is the majority of these skin issues are temporary and will disappear after your baby is born. This episode examines common skin issues during pregnancy like skin sensitivity, stretch marks, acne, melasma, linea nigra, spider and varicose veins, skin tags, and conditions like PUPPP and ICP. We examine the symptoms, causes, if or how you can prevent them, and how you can safely treat each of these skin issues.
