When it comes to pregnancy and sunscreen, say, "I do," to Anti-Aging Mineral Sunblock SPF 30.
Diligently applying sunscreen throughout pregnancy helps prevent the brown spots known as "the mask of pregnancy." But some sunscreen uses chemical ingredients to block UVA/UVB rays—and those chemicals aren't recommended for use during pregnancy.
Anti-Aging Mineral Sunblock is a safe, effective pregnancy sunscreen that's paraben-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free and totally worry-free.
Anti-Aging Mineral Sunblock SPF 30 protects against sun damage and harmful UVA/UVB rays with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
It also contains unique, bioactive vitamin content that stimulates younger, healthier skin and reverses wrinkle formation and sun damage.
The light, fluffy, soft cream absorbs quickly and applies easily without white residue or greasiness. Water-resistant.
Made in the USA; no animal testing; 100% vegan ingredients.
Frequently Asked Questions About Chloasma and Pregnancy Sunscreen
What is chloasma?
Chloasma, also known as "melasma" and "the mask of pregnancy," is
hyperpigmentation, or darkening, of the skin. It usually shows as
collections of dark splotches on the cheeks and nose, but can also
appear anywhere on the body.
What causes chloasma?
Reproductive hormones cause an increased production of melanocytes—the
cells in your skin that create pigment to protect from ultraviolet
damage. The extra deposits of melanocytes left by those industrious
maternal hormones result in extra darkening when exposed to UVA and UVB
Will I get chloasma during pregnancy?
Chloasma affects up to 70% of pregnant women. To prevent it, stay out of
the sun and wear a barrier sunscreen that contains zinc oxide and
titanium dioxide, such as Anti-Chloasma Facial Sunscreen SPF 25.
I have chloasma, will it go away?
Yes, but it can be months before it fades completely. In the meantime,
continue to apply sunscreen and use makeup to lessen the appearance.
There are methods for removing patches of hyperpigmentation, such as
bleaching creams and laser removal, but avoid chemical and alternative
skin treatments until after baby is born.
