Essential do’s and dont's for skin health during pregnancy.
Skincare During Pregnancy

NOTE: We recommend that you consult your physician to review any over-the-counter medications and personal care products you plan to use during pregnancy or while nursing.


Becoming pregnant can be a very special time in your life. You start planning for your new arrival—preparing the nursery, researching baby names and registering for your baby shower. So many new experiences and changes. Your body is changing, too, including your skin.


Whether you are “glowing” or not, there are a few ups and downs your skin may go through during this time.


Oily skin and hormonal breakouts
With all those hormonal changes, it’s no wonder that you can suddenly develop oilier skin with continual, hormonal breakouts throughout your pregnancy. Treat hormonal breakouts with a regimen of products containing acne-fighting ingredients.


Start with gentle, targeted products like Clarifying Cream Cleanser. It’s a rich, creamy cleanser that treats and prevents breakouts as it calms, soothes, and conditions.


To really purify and unclog pores, try using clay-based Rapid Relief Sulfur Mask 1-2 times a week. The sulfur in Rapid Relief Sulfur Mask will help reduce your active breakouts and fight future ones. Apply an even layer and put your feet up for 10 minutes and let the mask draw out those impurities.

You should always keep skin hydrated. Yes, even oily skin and breakouts need moisture, too. Try Clarifying Oil-Free Water Gel, an oil-free hydrator that balances your skin without clogging pores.


Dry skin
Dehydration can also show up while your body is busy nurturing a new life. You might start seeing dry patches and flaky skin. If this is your pregnancy-skin challenge, then you have to up the moisture ante.


Look for products with ingredients that are paired with humectants, conditioners and botanical oils like avocado and sunflower oils, shea butter, and hyaluronic acid. Hydro-Dynamic™ Ultimate Moisture delivers 24 hours of lightweight hydration without feeling heavy or thick. 


One thing that is always important, and becomes even more so when you are pregnant, is protecting your skin from harmful UV rays. As you progress through each trimester, your skin may be more at risk for hyperpigmentation. Wearing a sunscreen packed with antioxidants that fight free radicals can help protect your skin against discolouration. Also, be sure to use products that have brightening vitamin C and an SPF of at least 30. And, make sure the sunscreen says is broad spectrum: This is the best defense you can have against UVA, the ageing rays, and UVB, the burning rays.


As always, we recommend that you check with your doctor first to determine the best choices for you before using any new products while pregnant.
