Obagi Pregnancy

June 17, 2020

Obagi systems are available to maintain Youthful skin through life's cycle.
  • Dermatologist Dr. Ellen Marmur, author of Simple Skin Beauty says “be on the safe side and ask your pregnancy Dr. about anything that you think might be harmful.”
  • Further even if you’ve been reassured that something is safe, if it makes you uncomfortable, just avoid it

 

Pregnancy and motherhood are life-changing and exciting times for women. However, they also come with a host of health-related concerns

SKIN CARE INGREDIENTS TO AVOID

  • Retinol. While pregnant or nursing it's best to avoid retinol (vitamin A), prescribed forms of retinol or retinol derivates (retinyl retinoate, retinaldehyde or hydroxypinacolone retinoate).
  • Skin brighteners (that contain hydroquinone). It is best to avoid using them during pregnancy or breastfeeding. 
  • Benzoyl peroxide is an excellent ingredient to combat blemishes and is considered safe in low concentrations (5% or less) .
  • Prescription topical antibiotics are considered safe for use during pregnancy.
  • Salicylic acid (BHA) consider using glycolic acid or lactic acid (AHA) exfoliants as an alternative as these are perfectly safe to use during pregnancy.
  • Sunscreen actives, as demonstrated in several studies, are not known to be a risk during pregnancy.
