Are you growing a new human right now? Awesome. Your body is in for some rapid changes as it helps to nourish and grow that bun in your proverbial oven. You might notice your skin needing a little special attention: Your cheeks, lips, and nipples may all seem dry and chapped; your under eyes may look significantly darker; your under-boob sweat could end up being completely out of control. And on top of that, you have to be mindful and particular of what ingredients you are introducing to your body as it’s also impacting your baby.
"Women should avoid any topical retinoids or retinol while pregnant," says dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, "While there are no studies on the effects of topical retinoids in pregnancy, there is much evidence that shows oral retinoids can cause major birth defects, and since skin can absorb topicals and potentially have ingredients enter the bloodstream, it is best to avoid using these products throughout pregnancy."
Dermatologist Shari Marchbein adds even more to the list of chemicals to be be avoided. "Salicylic and glycolic acids should also be avoided unless discussed with your dermatologist or OBGYN. And although not [over the counter], cosmetic procedures such as Botulinum toxin and fillers are contraindicated during pregnancy. Bleaching creams containing hydroquinone should also be avoided during this time."
There are many things to consider, but no matter what the next 40 weeks have in store for you, these eleven products will leave your skin soft and hydrated, giving it (and you) the level of pampering it deserves.
