Acne During Pregnancy Gender
Scan is a certain way of finding our your baby’s gender. There are, however, other ways to find out if you are having a boy or a girl. Many consider these methods to be old wives tales. We shouldn’t rely completely on their use in predicting gender as they are unreliable, and not scientifically accurate.
Pregnancy is a beautiful phase of life. A would-be mother should always try to remain happy and content with her
present state. But due to a lot of
hormonal changes in the body, pimples and acne usually sprout up on the face, causing much disappointment. Especially during the first 6 months of pregnancy, there is a rapid occurrence of pimple marks on the face. During this time there is an increase in the level of androgens which causes excessive oil and wax on the skin. Thus a lot of bacterial and fungal infection rises. Though these acnes are temporary, they are disappointing to look at.
Are you suffering from more acne than normal? Apparently, acne during pregnancy can indicate that you are carrying a girl. On occasion, acne can occur during the first trimester as your body is flushed with extra hormones which take over. These extra hormones do our skin no good and it’s relatively common for pregnant women to feel like they are reliving their teenage years reaching for the concealer to cover up those flaring spots.
In comparison, if you have a perfect complexion with glowing skin, then this could indicate that you are having a boy. A woman accounts that: “On both my girls, I suffered frustrating acne on my face, neck and back which cleared up in the second trimester and brought me back to that glowing pregnancy state with strong hair and nails and beautiful skin. I’ll admit, I was glad this pregnancy symptom didn’t last too long as it was worse than when I was in my teens and early twenties! But it also rightly predicted that I was carrying girls”.
Here are few home remedies to treat this acne during pregnancy:
Apple cider vinegar: Pour some apple
cider vinegar on a cotton ball and rub it over on the face. It also works as a toner for the skin. One can also mix it with water and then apply, to avoid skin irritation.
Honey: Honey is a natural antiseptic
ingredient. It has both antiseptic and
antibacterial properties which help to
treat the problem of acne and pimples.
Use some honey on the infected area and leave it for half an hour. You can see the results immediately.
Coconut oil: Coconut oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties. It is one of the best choices to kill the bacteria that accumulates on the skin. Use a drop of coconut oil as a natural moisturiser.
Baking soda: Baking soda along with
water is the best solution to treat the skin acne. It removes the excess oil from the skin, thus making it free from bacteria and fungal infection.
Turmeric: Turmeric is antiseptic in nature and heals most of the wounds. It is best for skin treatment. Mix a tsp. of turmeric with water and apply over on the pimples. Leave it for some time and rinse the face with cold water.
Aloe vera: Aloe vera gel is best for skin
treatment. Applying this gel on the
infected area will help to get rid of the
problems of acne and pimples. It is
antifungal in nature, thus removes the
marks as well and gives a cooling effect.
This method of predicting gender of the baby whether it will be male or female is not fool proven but it adds joy and fun to the pregnancy process.
