Pregnancy-safe Skincare


I'm sure your whole world has changed since finding out you're expecting and that might include changes in your skin care regimen too.

It is still important to cleanse, protect your skin from the sun, and keep it well moisturized. However, if there are some skin issues that you are currently treating such as acne, pigmentation, or stretch marks, remember that some active ingredients need to be put on hold during pregnancy and maybe even later during lactation.

Oral isotretinoin is a pregnancy category X so it's definitely not allowed during pregnancy. Topical retinoids, both prescription and non-prescription ones should be avoided as well.

Salicylic acid or beta-hydroxy acid may be used only in small amounts, but other active ingredients like vitamin C, your AHASs and PHAs, niacinamide, and azelaic acid may be used safely as alternatives. When in doubt on how to best take care of your skin, please consult your board-certified dermatologist for proper advice.
