Hi Colleen — I’m hoping to become pregnant in the next few months, and I’m wondering if I should make any changes to my skincare while pregnant. Also, I’m worried my skin is going to break-out with all the hormones. Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening? — T.T. “San Francisco”
I’m glad to hear you are already thinking about changes to your skincare regimen. To be honest, there are of skin care treatments and products that should be avoided while pregnant and nursing, but there are also a lot of ways to take care of your skin safely:
This isn’t an exhaustive list, and I will be able to give you more personalized information during your skincare consult. Also, its really important to have a doctor approve the use of any over-the-counter or prescription drugs while you’re pregnant or nursing. Here in our office, Drs. Lieberman & Parikh oversee all of patients, treatments and skincare regimens.
I hope this helps! Feel free to call our office – (650) 327-3232 – or leave a comment below if you have other specific questions about skincare during pregnancy.
