Skincare during pregnancy - New Skin Medical Spa

Pregnancy Skincare Routine

By our amazing Esthetician Sarah Lucius!

First and foremost, when it comes to pregnancy skincare, it’s always best to consult with your OBGYN.

However, as a general rule of thumb, there are certain ingredients and/or treatments we just don’t touch when you’re growing a baby. Here is a list of some to absolutely avoid, along with some that CAN be used with clearance from your OBGYN.

Here is a rundown of Skincare I’ve kept the same + changed for pregnancy. 

SAME SAME: 

• Double cleansing every night. Using One Love Organics Vitamin B cleanser to remove makeup rather than using my ZOE plus sonic cleanser + ZO gentle cleanser to cleanse the skin. 

• ZO Skin health exfoliating polish to remove dead skin cells, Improve skin texture, & enhance cell turnover. 

• Zo Calming toner to reduce excess oil production and calm the skin. 

• Next step- applying Skinbetter Alto defense to even skin tone, reduce redness, and restore hydration. 

• PRO TIP!!! PRESS serums into the skin; don’t rub. You’ll get better absorption, and you’ll actually use less product. 

• Next- Skinbetter interfuses treatment Eye helps improve skin texture under the eye and plumps the skin. 

• Then, Skinbetter Trio rebalancing moisture treatment. This is great anti-aging, ultra-hydrating, anti-inflammatory, and barrier repairing!! 

SAME SAME: 

•Exfoliating using enzymes 

• Applying Vitamin C  

• SPF SPF SPF EVERYDAY RAIN OR SHINE 

• Lactic acid 

• Dermaplaning

NOT DOING: 

•Retinol 

• Chemical peels (although lactic is an exception) 

• Hydroquinone 

• Filler 

•Laser hair removal 

• Dihydroxyacetone (DHA, found in self-tanners) 

• Chemical SPF like oxybenzone
