How to protect yourself from the sun when you are pregnant?
Protect your skin
One of the dangers of a pregnant woman when exposed to the sun is the appearance of the mask of pregnancy (Chloasma). These are pigmented plaques that appear on the face on the forehead, chin, cheeks, cheekbones, around the mouth ...
The reflex to have: Sunscreen! Apply sunscreen half an hour before your sun exposure to protect yourself from UVA and UVB rays. For optimal action, use a product claiming an index greater than 50. Reapply every two hours (even with a high index!). It will protect you from sunburn but also from aging of the skin!
Summer days are pleasant, but you have to avoid the inconvenience of hot weather. Drink water regularly, throughout the day, for your skin and for the body. Even if you are not thirsty! The amount of water you should drink obviously depends on your activities (sports etc.). However, drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day!
To drink more
It is not always easy to drink between 1.5 liters and 2 liters of water per day. You can flavor your water to give it flavor! To do this, cut fruits you like (strawberries, kiwis, mangoes, oranges, lemons etc.) and mix with water! Store it in the fridge, it will be delicious to drink anytime!
