Beauty Treatments and Makeup During Pregnancy

Print Friendly



During pregnancy many women freak out using the same products that they used before as they feel that makeup would harm the baby. I was once a big makeup freak before I had my baby.

So here are some safe beauty treatment and makeup tips:

Facials, Clean ups: during the initial months you can sit through a facial. Usually the skin is very sensitive during pregnancy so use mild products.

Bleach: You can bleach your face; try not to bleach the body. Sit in a nicely ventilated place during bleach. Herbal bleach like Fem herbal bleach is good.

Lipstick: don’t use dark colors as it contains lead, go for mild colors.

CTM: You can use mild cleanser, alcohol free toners and moisturizer. Cleaners from Bodyshop are good or use coconut oil as a cleanser, try the toner from lush and a good oil free moisturizer.

Foundations: try to avoid them as they block pores and will hide all your natural glow.

Blush: Avoid blush it will make your already bloated face look worse.

Kajals and eye makeup: Avoid too much glittery makeup as the particle might harm the baby, a kohl or kajal is safe. Again sorry to repeat herbal ones like Shahnaz are considered safe.

Soaps and shampoos: most soaps and shampoos are safe during pregnancy.

Waxing: There is no proof that waxing induces contractions, I would say avoid on your legs, but for the hand its fine.

Eyebrow and Upperlip shaping: If you’re a very sensitive person and would start to contract or pull yourself back, avoid it.

Pedicure and manicure: Its totally safe and relaxing, try not to lift your leg too high during pedicure.

Haircuts: it’s good to trim your luscious hair.


Body massage: very few people know how to massage a pregnant lady, so don’t take a risk avoid it.

Hair coloring

Any chemical treatments like hair spa

Facials involving machines, lasers, IR, ultrasound, even if they say it’s safe, don’t take a risk, walk out.
