Antiaging Skin Care During Pregnancy? What do I have to consider?

Anti-aging or "pro-aging", to put it better, skin over the age of 25 needs an intensive care routine. Despite a few limitations, you don't have to give up your anti-aging routine completely during pregnancy. Here are a few points as examples while you might look out for it during pregnancy.

Certain anti-aging ingredients should be avoided during pregnancy as their safety for the unborn baby has not been adequately studied. Here are some active ingredients to avoid during pregnancy:

  1. Retinol and retinoids: Retinol, retinyl palmitate, and other forms of vitamin A should be avoided, as high doses have been linked to an increased risk of birth defects. These active ingredients are often found in anti-aging creams, serums and skin treatments.

  2. Salicylic Acid: Salicylic acid is commonly used to treat acne and exfoliate the skin. However, its use should be limited during pregnancy, as in high doses it can increase the risk of birth complications. It is recommended to avoid products containing salicylic acid or to use them only in low concentrations.

  3. Hydroquinone: Hydroquinone is used to treat hyperpigmentation. Its safety during pregnancy has not been adequately researched, so its use should be avoided.

  4. Chemical Peels: Deep chemical peels using strong acids can be potentially harmful as they can penetrate the skin and enter the bloodstream. It is recommended to avoid such treatments during pregnancy.

It is important to note that this is only a general guideline. Every person and every pregnancy is unique, so it is advisable to always consult a health care professional before using any product or treatment containing anti-aging active ingredients during pregnancy. They can provide customized advice based on your health condition and specific needs.
