Exposure to the sun: with parsimony
Do you love sunbathing? Just because you are pregnant does not mean you have to say goodbye to the sun. However, caution, do not expose yourself to the hottest hours and remember to spread your sunscreen. Think of protecting your face with a hat as the sun favors the appearance of the pregnancy mask.
UV in the cabin: no!
It is said enough that UV is harmful to health. So, pregnant, avoid any risk. Also, you may already have thick legs, so you do not have to put them to the test in an overheated cabin. Traffic side and pregnancy mask, this is frankly not the top!

To prevent them, apply, from the first month, an anti-stretch mark cream. Moreover, there are particular pregnant women. So do not deprive yourself!
