Can the pregnancy mask be prevented?

The pregnancy mask is just one of the side effects associated with sudden hormonal changes. To prevent these brown spots from appearing, Clarins provides tips and effective sun protection to help you enjoy the sunshine with total peace of mind.

What is the pregnancy mask?

Common in expectant mothers, the pregnancy mask takes the form of hyperpigmentation of the skin in localised areas: forehead, cheeks and eye contour. It is the result of the hormonal changes that accompany pregnancy, and generally appears between the fourth and sixth month. To prevent the appearance of the pregnancy mask, expectant mothers are advised to avoid sun exposure, or to use suitable sun protection. The skin must be protected at all times.

Which facial sun cream should be used to prevent the pregnancy mask?

Even in the city, we recommend using a very high level of sun protection for your face; in the form of a sun cream, lotion or spray. UV Plus Day Screen Multi-Protection SPF50 is a 100% mineral sunscreen that protects against the harmful effects of the sun and is perfect for use with all moisturisers. It should be re-applied regularly. You should always avoid peak hours of sun intensity, between 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM.

Consider self-tanning creams as a way to get a beautiful golden glow year-round without exposing yourself to the harmful effects of UV rays.
