Sun protection becomes even more critical during pregnancy because the skin is more sensitive to sun rays, especially in the first few months. Melanocytes, which are cells that produce pigments, flare-up, so pregnant women are more likely to freckles, pigments, and other skin color issues like melasma. Pregnant women need to know more about sunscreens than just SPF. Yes, the spectrum does matter, but there are also other aspects that must be considered. A good sunscreen will not only protect the skin but will ensure that sun rays don’t affect the body negatively because the skin is the first defense.
