Even though retinol is a superstar ingredient when it comes to anti-ageing benefits like reducing fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and dark spots. It is not suitable to use during pregnancy. In addition, even though only higher concentrations have been linked to congenital disabilities, it is advised to stay away from all retinoids during pregnancy.

With your body being extra sensitive to everything around you. It is essential to have sunscreen as a part of your pregnancy skincare routine. However, Oxybenzone, an ingredient often used in chemical sunscreens, is endocrine-disrupting and could cause possible congenital disabilities.

Switching to a mineral-based, broad-spectrum sunscreen during this time is a great idea. These sunscreens often contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, which are safe to use and shield you from the harmful effects of the sun. Sun protection should be part of your everyday skincare routine, and when you’re pregnant, even more so! Our Mattifying Sunscreen can help protect your skin from hyperpigmentation, patches, and fine lines that result from pregnancy-related skin sensitivity.

SKIP SALICYLIC ACID, TRY GLYCOLIC ACID

Even though it’s great to treat acne, salicylic acid is not safe when used in excess during pregnancy. It’s best to avoid this in the form of peels, masks, and creams. However, it can be used in the form of a low concentration face wash or cleanser.
