Complexion

It is likely you will notice changes in your skin as fluctuating hormones cause unexpected changes. Skin breakouts may occur in early pregnancy and may be distressing for some women. These usually clear once the hormones have settled.

  • Increase water intake to help clear impurities.
  • Increase fresh organic vegetable intake.
  • Avoid fried foods, fatty foods, sugar, fizzy drinks and chocolate.
  • Avoid alcohol, cigarettes and coffee as these congest the skin’s pores.
  • Do not use oil on the face as it attracts dirt and clogs the skin.
  • Cleanse your face gently three or four times a day but avoid scrubbing. Use a fresh facecloth each time to avoid spreading bacteria.
  • Do not squeeze pimples as bacteria will spread and amplify the problem.
  • Try using an antiseptic tea-tree facial wash.
  • Reflexology helps balance the hormonal system and clear impurities.
  • Lymphatic drainage massage will assist elimination.
  • Facials with non-oil products will improve your complexion and encourage healing.
  • Yoga is recommended to increase circulation and help to reduce stress.
  • Acupuncture treatments are known to balance hormones and promote strong digestion and elimination.
  • Drink freshly squeezed juices of carrot, cucumber, lemon, apple and ginger to support the immune system and cleanse the internal organs.
  • Echinacea tincture is known to cleanse the blood. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the skin is the “window to the blood”.
