Everybody wants to look beautiful and attractive. Looking good is a great way to boost your confidence. It helps you face the world with poise and conviction.
But when you are pregnant, things are a little different. It is not just about you anymore. It is also about your unborn baby.
Everyone's skin and pregnancies are different. If you’ve noticed a sudden change in your skin, your doctor should be your first stop for a treatment plan and you should always consult them before trying a new product yourself.
At Skintherapy, we have helped many pregnant and breast-feeding women control their acne but we also work with your doctor to ensure the products and services are safe for both you and your child.
What is Safe to Use During Pregnancy
Many products are considered safe for moms, including benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide is one of the most widely recommended acne treatment medications and most physicians consider it safe to use during pregnancy. It can work wonders for breakouts on the face, back, and shoulders, though you should keep it off your chest if you’re breastfeeding.
There are other options, too, if you prefer a more conservative approach: You could also use a serum with mandelic acid, because it’s derived from almonds. These are some suggestions of products that we may offer to help but we will consult with your doctor first before recommending what might work best for you.
What to Avoid During Pregnancy
For parents or soon-to-be parents who are finding their pimples especially distressing, the experts recommend seeking professional help to get to the root cause and to establish an effective acne plan. If you’re beyond pregnancy and lactation, there are also many effective treatments available. They may take time, but something will work for you. And if you’re expecting, think of it this way: Pregnancy acne is essentially a sign of a good thing—it’s because you’re pregnant.
Luckily, hormonal acne and acne that occurs during pregnancy doesn’t have to impact your life. There are still acne treatments out there that you can use during pregnancy. At Skintherapy, we are happy to discuss your options with you and keep your doctor included in the consultation to make sure you are safe with our Clear & Acne Free Program™.
