Is there a safe alternative out there?

When you’re pregnant, there are things that you just have to avoid to keep the baby safe and healthy. I understand this and I’m taking it seriously that’s why even if my acne have gotten worse each day of my pregnancy I had not put anything on my face except constantly wash it with gentle soap and water. I have read that certain chemicals in beauty products such as Retin-A which are found on anti wrinkle face creams can cause certain birth defects as well so it definitely should be avoided during pregnancy. I’m not quite sure if Sally Hansen chemical hair remover is unsafe but I had also quit using that despite the fact that I need to get rid of the hair on my upper lip as it’s starting to look like a sheer mustache, lol. I’ll remember to ask my doctor on my next visit about that. There’s got to be a way to still look and feel good while being pregnant, isn’t there?

I don't know about the Sally Hansen chemical remover, but just make sure you ask your OB what's safe and not safe to use. As long as the chemical isn't absorbed by your bloodstream, it should be safe to use. ;)

Wait until your belly gets larger, and shaving your legs starts to become a challenge. LOL...!

I had the same problem when I was pregnant with Claira. I went to the Dermatologist and he gave me prescriptions safe for a pregnant woman like me.
