Be beautiful during your pregnancy

  1. From the moment you know that you are pregnant, you stay away from that glass of wine, you have stopped eating sushi, carpaccio and brie and you are careful with coffee and spices. But what about hair dye, nail polish and sunscreen? Can you use it safely?

  1. Anything you put on your skin can be absorbed into the blood and thus end up in the placenta. However, most beauty products are completely safe. You do not necessarily have to be completely natural for the full 9 months. If you are not allowed to use a product during pregnancy, there will be a special warning. Read the instructions carefully if you are unsure.

About cosmetics

  1. There is special legislation for cosmetics: pregnant women must also be able to use products. Therefore it is absolutely forbidden to use substances that can be harmful to the unborn child. This is strictly monitored in the Netherlands and Europe. It is good to know the following things:

Tooth whiteners

  1. Some toothpastes contain a very low level of peroxide. It serves to whiten the teeth together with other, often somewhat abrasive ingredients. For adults, this ingredient is safe, even if you swallow a little. In principle, the products can also be used during pregnancy, because the amount you swallow is minimal. However, if you want to be on the safe side, use a toothpaste without peroxide. It is important to keep taking good care of your mouth during pregnancy. You run a higher risk of gum problems and cavities. \

Hairspray and nail polish

  1. Cosmetics such as hairspray and nail polish often contain phthalates. Some phthalates are known to increase the risk of birth defects. The phthalates with a risk have now been legally prohibited in cosmetics. Hairspray and nail polish do contain solvents that you can easily inhale when using. To be on the safe side, it is best to apply nail polish in a well-ventilated room. The same goes for hairspray.

Sun products

  1. A recent study has associated the use of benzophenone, a UV filter, with low birth weight in girls. However, in this study, it was not proven that the sunscreen was to blame. There are also other options, such as sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium oxide. For pregnant women, the use of a good sunscreen is very important. The hormones make the skin more sensitive than normal. It is therefore best for pregnant women to use products with a high protection factor. In addition, protective clothing is necessary. For all methods that give you a tan, self-tanner, tanning bed and sun, applies: everything in moderation.

Acne

  1. During pregnancy acne often gets worse due to fluctuations in hormones. However, it is not recommended to use anti-acne medicines. When acne occurs, it is best to consult your doctor.

Hair dye

  1. Hair dye can be used safely during pregnancy if you follow the instructions carefully. Some doctors advise avoiding hair dye, especially in the first trimester. If you're worried, just don't do it.

Make up

  1. Many women start the day by applying foundation, lipstick and other cosmetics and leave it on until they go to bed. Some ingredients, such as fragrances and lead, are by no means always healthy. Pregnant women should be aware of what they are putting on their faces.

Anti-Wrinkle

  1. Some anti-wrinkle creams contain retinol, an ingredient that should be avoided in large quantities during the first months of pregnancy. There are indications that this substance can lead to congenital disorders. If an anti-wrinkle cream should not be used during pregnancy, it says so. In addition, the amount of retinol in anti-wrinkle cream is usually so low that it does not pose a risk. The use of botox during pregnancy is also not recommended. Although there are no solid studies to prove it, scientists believe that botox can also cause miscarriage or growth restriction.
