Warning signs during pregnancy28 April 2023
During pregnancy, it is important to pamper your body, pay special attention to your needs and well-being. As you may have thought, some products or cosmetic interventions could have a negative impact on the baby in your tummy. Find out with Barza what six things are good to stick to as permissible pregnancy care rituals!
Moisturise your skin in abundance! It needs more attention now as it tends to lose its elasticity.
Use nourishing body creams and massage your abdomen and thighs every day.
Massage and relaxing baths
You can opt for a prenatal massage specially designed to relax and reduce muscle tension. Make sure you choose a professional therapist!
A warm bath or relaxing shower can also be a great way to pamper your body. Make sure the water temperature is comfortable. Avoid staying in the water for too long to avoid overheating your body!
For your skin, choose a cream suitable for your specific skin type (normal, oily or combination). Don’t forget the sun protection factor (SPF): 15, at least! Dermatocosmetic skin care products contain very few unfriendly chemical ingredients, so they are a good choice.
Choose blushes, foundations and powders from trusted brands with as many natural ingredients as possible. Follow the “less is more” principle.
You can continue to wear your make-up the way you want, but you need to be careful which cosmetics you choose. Opt for products that are paraben-free and non-comedogenic and, as far as possible, fragrance-free.
Manicure and pedicure
You can still care for your nails as you wish, but avoid inhaling the fumes from nail polish or nail polish remover. It is also preferable to avoid beauty salons, which are often poorly ventilated.
Hair removal during pregnancy
Pregnancy-specific hormonal changes can cause excessive body hair growth, so you won’t be able to avoid waxing.
You can confidently use the razor blade, although you may find that your strands will become coarser and darker. You can also resort to waxing, but with caution as the pain is likely to be more intense.
We recommend using Barza Baking Soda Intimate Wipes at the end of waxing to soothe redness and irritation.
Hair care and colouring
There are no contraindications to using shampoo or conditioner, so you can use the products you used before you got pregnant.
There is indeed some controversy about hair dye, but there is no evidence that it can actually harm pregnancy. Although there is not enough evidence to show that these substances are dangerous during pregnancy, it is recommended that you avoid colouring your hair in the first trimester and talk to your doctor before doing so in subsequent trimesters.
You can therefore dye your hair, but it’s best to choose ammonia and peroxide-free varieties. Also, make sure your skin comes into contact with the paint as little as possible. It is advisable to wear special gloves for protection and avoid applying too much paint to the scalp.
Also make sure you ventilate the room where the painting is taking place, as the fumes could cause you discomfort.
Although your priorities are now focused on your baby’s health and the normal progress of your pregnancy, there’s no reason to neglect the small rituals of female grooming. If you stick to a care routine that includes the care rituals allowed in pregnancy, you’ll find that you’ll feel great in your skin throughout the nine months.
