Pregnancy is a magical time but with it comes much change to a woman’s lifestyle, including her skin care routine. Here are some tips on pregnancy-safe skin care.
Avoid the following ingredients because of potential risk: tetracycline, hydroquinone, retinoids, and salicylic acid.
Avoid irritating the skin and exacerbating problematic skin by not using a washcloth to clean your face.
Use a lightweight, non-fragrant moisturizer that provides all day hydration.
To help minimize potential stretch marks, use a baby-safe body butter or oil to massage over the belly.
Wash gently with an ultra-mild, soap-free, sulfate-free cleanser twice a day.
Avoid getting professional treatments such as Botox laser treatments.
Gently exfoliate two to three times a week with a product that contains a natural microbeadlet, like jojoba or Ecuadorian ivory palm seeds.
Use a hyaluronic acid serum daily to help relieve dryness or dehydration.
Use a physical sunscreen daily to shield skin from ultraviolet damage.
Lastly, help shield skin from damaging high energy visible light (HEV) with a product that contains Liposhield.
