All About Pregnancy Facials

The physical changes during pregnancy can be significant and sometimes quite uncomfortable. Going through all these shifts and difficulties can make you feel like you need some TLC.

You must take care of your body throughout pregnancy for the sake of both you and your unborn child. It is equally crucial to know which self-care practices are secure and which should be avoided. Pregnancy facials, when performed correctly, can be a soothing and healthy form of self-care.

What Facials Are Safe During Pregnancy?

Deep cleansing facials – Simple facials consist of cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the skin. A deep cleaning facial is risk-free and can-do wonders for your oil levels.
Oxygen facials – These facials are great for stimulating blood flow and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydrating facials – Hydrating, moisturizing, and cleansing the skin are all achieved by using elastin, collagen, and water in these facials.

Unsafe Treatments to Avoid

While pregnant, you shouldn’t get any of these face treatments:

Microdermabrasion – Your skin is more vulnerable throughout those nine months, which could cause itching, breakouts, or even scarring if you do anything to it.
Retinoids – Because vitamin A is used in their production, they are a teratogen that could harm a developing child. The craniofacial, cardiovascular, and neurological anomalies are among these. Any use of retinoids should be stopped if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant.
Chemical peels – If you regularly use chemical peels to treat acne, consult a doctor or other qualified medical practitioner first. Your skin is more vulnerable than usual during pregnancy, and these peels could cause severe damage if used. In the meanwhile, your doctor can suggest alternative treatments.
