juices for pregnancy
When a woman becomes pregnant, her body and skin will experience certain changes due to hormonal changes. This can cause the skin to turn dry. Hence, it is important to keep the skin moisturise during this period. Although there are skin care products out there that can do the job, there are also natural replenishment that can make the skin healthier.

With an increase in the secretion of hormones in the body and a weakened natural immunity after pregnancy, the skin defense capabilities will slowly be lowered too. This will cause the skin to show a certain degree of sensitivity and vulnerability. Furthermore, spices, alcohol or additives in skin care products are likely to exhibit allergic phenomena too. Therefore, pregnant mothers are extremely cautious during their selection of skin care products. Most of them do not realise that some of the day-to-day juices are capable of achieving the same results too.
