Writer and expert /
Sensitive skin during pregnancy can occur even if you’ve never had sensitive skin before. These changes are linked to – you guessed it – your ever fluctuating hormones! There’s so much going on inside your body, it makes sense that things change on the outside, too. But we’re here to help you deal with the increased sensitivity and find out how to soothe itchy tummies.
The increase in hormones can cause extra-sensitivity to anything ranging from sunlight, detergents and even certain types of food. It’s also because as your baby grows, so do you! Your skin is going to stretch, which can cause it to feel itchy, dry and tender. If you had eczema before pregnancy, it may flare up even more. But there are ways to help ease sensitivity!
We might be a little biased – but our top tip is to switch up your skincare regime. The products you used prior to pregnancy will potentially contain ingredients and chemicals that you weren’t even aware of, combined with crazy hormones that can really irritate skin. You might have used a certain product for years, yet suddenly it can cause flare ups and redness.
All of our products are developed solely for use during and after pregnancy, with our no nasties policy making sure it’s 100% safe yet still effective. Mama Mio skincare also treats specific concerns that only occur during pregnancy – hormonal imbalances, sore boobs, itchiness and increased sensitivity to name just a few!
Things with fragrance tend to cause skin reactivity – you might find your favourite perfume now leaves skin red and itchy. Try a few dabs of a pregnancy-safe essential oil as a replacement; some mamas find citrus and ginger-based scents can help alleviate nausea.
If you find all scents a little too strong, our new Fragrance Free Tummy Rub Butter is the perfect choice for bodycare. It offers all the same protective properties of the original just with zero fragrance to ensure minimal irritation. It’s super-hydrating formula gives skin the nourishment it needs, plus it instantly cools and soothes itchiness.
You might find that you burn more easily in the sun – make sure you’re wearing at least SPF 15, wear a hat and try to avoid long periods of exposure. With increased sensitivity your skin might react to your usual sunscreen – try swapping to one with a physical filter rather than chemical filter, like titanium dioxide.

After some time in the sunshine, skin may be left feeling extra prickly and itchy. Keep a Way to Glow Facial Spritz in your bag for on-the-go – it’s ultra-cooling formula contains Aloe Leaf and Hyaluronic Acid to instantly soothe and comfort skin during hot weather or hot flushes.
Choose clothes that are made from pure cotton as this is kinder on skin. And looser fitting items won’t rub against skin or feel too constrictive. It might also be a good idea to start washing your clothes with non-bio and using an unperfumed softener.
An especially effective tip in summer months, taking a cool bath or shower can really help to instantly alleviate feelings of irritation. This will help to lower your overall body temperature and is also good if you’ve had a long day on your feet. Once out, use Lucky Legs™ Cooling Gel to ease swelling or redness.
Most skincare changes will sort themselves out once you’ve had your baby and your hormones settle down.
