When you’re pregnant, hormone fluctuations can create havoc on the skin which can appear as breakouts, dryness and even pigmentation. Your skin may not be as tolerant of ingredients the way it usually would and therefore your skincare routine will most likely need an upgrade to more gentle, hydrating and protective products. Some women choose to avoid retinol and retinol derivatives, salicylic acid, essential oils and highly concentrated ingredients. We recommend using gentle but effective cleansers, enzymatic exfoliants, hydrating serums and protective creams. See our list of recommended products below, and always check with your doctor for a final opinion.
