Pregnancy Skin Care Products
Pregnancy Skin Care Products – During the pregnancy, Mother certainly experienced various changes in the body including skin conditions. According to a dermatologist, Sandra Marchese Johnson, of Johnson Dermatology at Fort Smith, Arkansas, everything that Mother eats or applies to the skin can affect not only the mother’s body but also the development of the fetus in the womb.
Therefore, while preparing for delivery, you also need to pay attention to the skin care products you use. In order for Mother can still take care of body skin while pregnant, here are some types of skin products that are safe to use.
Anti Aging Cream
In some anti-aging moisturizers, retinoids can be found which, according to the dermatologist, can reduce wrinkles and improve skin tone. Retinoids are a type of vitamin A that can help speed cell division (accelerate skin renewal) and prevent skin collagen from damage.
However, there is a presumption that vitamin A content in retinoids is not recommended by pregnant women if used excessively because it can harm the development of the fetus in the womb. Even oral retinoid products, such as isotretinoin (often found in oral acne medications), are feared to cause birth defects in infants.
Therefore, make sure you use a facial care product that is not excessive and in accordance with the instructions of use yes, ma’am. To ensure the safety of anti-aging cream that you use, you can consult your doctor or dermatologist about the content and how to use the product.
