My skin is going crazy since I had my baby, it's been over 2 months, will it ever even out? I have dry scalp, dry patches on my arms, and bumps on my arms.

  • Its all part of the hormone adjustment. It can take up to a year for the body to fully recover from pregnancy and child birth. Keep taking your prenatal vitamins, you body still needs those vitamins to recover and they will help the skin and hair. Drink lots of water and rest as much as you can, those will help as well.

  • You need to hydrate your body. Drink lots of water. I have dry skin and it is always better when I drink water.
