Serums & Treatments

Acne remedies, skin brightening and anti-aging treatments are particularly problematic during pregnancy because the facial serums and treatments for these conditions typically contain retinoids, salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, hydroquinone and chemical sunscreens as their effective ingredients along with xenoestrogens in the form of preservatives and fragrances. All of the above should all be avoided by women who are planning to get pregnant, are pregnant, and who are in their childbearing years.
Fortunately, there are a handful of small, women-started skin care brands that can come to your rescue with safe and effective formulas designed specifically for use by future and new mothers. 

Are the following serums and treatments as effective as non-pregnancy-specific ones? For the most part, yes. It’s hard to get the kind of fine lines reduction, plumping and scar tissue healing without retinoids, and even more difficult to lighten up dark spots without hydroquinone or skin bleaches, but you can still see results and improvement from the following brands made for safe use during pregnancy.
