Pregnancy Safe Skin Products

what skincare products are safe to use during pregnancy

Congratulations! Expecting a child is an exciting time. Pregnancy can be a time of drastic changes to your body and your skin, but understanding which skin care products are safe to use doesn’t have to be confusing. Our certified estheticians can help you navigate and recommend products that are safe to use during pregnancy and while nursing. Don’t get stuck in a skin care regimen that can potentially harm your unborn child- let us help you make informed decisions about the products you use to keep your skin healthy and the ingredients to avoid.

Your skin serves as a protective barrier, however certain components of certain products you apply to it can be readily absorbed into your skin and enter your bloodstream. This means those components can reach the placenta, and thus, your unborn child. These skincare ingredients should be avoided:

  • Skin lighteners with Hydroquinone
  • Retinoids: Retinol, Retin A/Accutane, Topical Vitamin A
  • Chemical Sunscreens: Avobenzone, octinoxate and oxybenzone
  • All Hydroxy Acids (Alpha, Beta and Poly)

Here’s a list of skin care products that are safe to use during your pregnancy and while you are nursing:

  • Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore 
  • Skinceuticals Simply Clean Cleanser
  • Skinceuticals Phloretin CF® With Ferulic Acid
  • Skinceuticals C E Ferulic® With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid
  • Skinceuticals Phloretin CF Gel
  • Skinbetter Cleansing Gel
  • Skinbetter Hydration Boosting Cream
  • Skinbetter Instant Effect Gel EYE
  • Skinbetter InterFuse® Intensive Treatment LINES
  • Skinbetter InterFuse® Treatment Cream EYE
  • Skinbetter InterFuse® Treatment Cream FACE & NECK

Always check with your physician before using any of these products.
