Precautions You Need to Consider during Pregnancy Facials

Getting facials while pregnant is typically safe, but there are some treatments, including microdermabrasion and chemical peels, that should be avoided. Since your skin is more sensitive than usual during pregnancy, microdermabrasion increases your risk of redness, acne outbreaks, and an uneven appearance. The use of a mild exfoliant on the face, such as crushed apricot kernels or bamboo beads, followed by a deeply moisturising mask (such as avocado or yoghurt), is a safe and relaxing alternative.

Precaution while Facial while pregnant

Make sure the facial treatments you’re receiving don’t include any harmful chemicals for you and the baby. When it comes to facial peels, beta hydroxy acid (BHA) like salicylic acid is an agent you want to avoid at all costs, according to Engelman. Doctors advise against using chemical peels that contain BHA because the acid has been proved to be dangerous for baby when taken orally in large levels. However, alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic and lactic acid, which are used in many facial treatments, are naturally occurring sugarcane byproducts that pose no risk to the unborn child. Simply said, before getting any sort of peel done, you should talk to your doctor.

Take away

The benefits include a pregnant glow for some women and not for others. Acne, dry skin, and excessive redness are all symptoms of pregnancy, but a relaxing, hydrating facial can help. Always consult a facial specialist before caring any facial while pregnant to prevent the risks.
