Safe Skincare for Pregnant Moms
For those lucky moms, pregnancy may mean effortless glow. For others, the extra hormonal activity brings everything from the regular acne to the unfamiliar rashes. To make it even worse, some of your regular and reliable skincare products aren’t safe for the pregnant you. So, what should you do?
It’s always best to talk to your doctor before using any medications, even over-the-counter ones. Check for any retinoids on the ingredients and avoid them at all costs. You might want to try switching your makeup or foundation because your skin may change from dry to oily during pregnancy. Clean your face properly and dab your face with oil paper during the day to keep it clean.
