Test Your Pregnancy Sun Exposure Knowledge

That pregnancy glow may be under your control. Expectant mamas know that their skin can undergo changes in the nine months your pregnant, but how does the sun affect it? As we enter Memorial Day weekend, and start packing our beach bags for a Summer by the shoer, take this quiz to test your knowledge about how the sun's rays can help and hurt a mother-to-be.

Test Your Pregnancy Sun Exposure Knowledge

It's a good thing I'm not pregnant - I only got 2/5 correct. Fail. The one thing I read when I was expecting that startled me was that the sun can also cause dark spots across your face when you're pregnant, and those spots (melasma? cannot remember) tend to not fade. I don't know if that's true or not, but worth mentioning!

Even though sunless tanners are considered safe, I still didn't even go near them when I was pregnant. Not something I want seeping into my skin!
