For some women, pregnancy is a beautiful time in their life filled with joy, excitement, and a radiant pregnancy glow. However, for other women, pregnancy can seem more like a big prank with morning sickness, back pains, and melasma. If you have started to get brown or gray patches across your face during your pregnancy, you are likely suffering from melasma. Although melasma typically goes away as your hormones die down after pregnancy, it’s not something you’ll want to flaunt around. This article will discuss a few tips to help you cover up your melasma while you are pregnant. Read on to learn more.
Steps To Conceal Melasma
The first way that you can cover up your melasma is by applying a concealer over the spots on your face. If you don’t already own a concealer, choose one that is one shade lighter than your natural skin— this will help you cover up the spots better. When buying a concealer, there are several options available including wand concealers that look like a lip gloss, liquid concealers in a tube, sponge-tip concealers, and stick concealers that look like a lipstick.
After you conceal your melasma spots, you’ll have to blend it in with the rest of your face. To do this, you can use either a face powder or liquid foundation. When applying your powder or foundation, make sure you go over the concealed areas and the rest of your face to make one cohesive look.
- Bronzing Powder
Now that your skin is all blended, you will want to add a bronzing powder and blush over the top so that you don’t just look one color. When applying bronzing powder, make sure that it’s not too dark of a shade and that you apply it to your entire face and neck so that everything blends. To top things of, add a little bit of blush to your cheeks to make them look rosier.
