‘We definitely gonn make one hella cute baby 🥰😝❤️’ Penned Vera
Skin lightening creams, lotions or washes may contain a wide variety of ingredients, some that may not be safe for pregnant mums.
If you choose to use skin whitening creams or bleach during pregnancy, keep the following in mind:
- Screen products by checking their ingredients list. If a product does not have an ingredients list, it should not be used.
- Read the manufacturer’s instructions on the packet carefully before applying the product and only use it as it was intended.
- Always do a patch test on a small area before using the product, even if you have used it before pregnancy. Your skin becomes more sensitive during pregnancy and the active ingredient may cause irritation. Stop using it immediately if any kind of reaction occurs.
- Never use bleach on swollen or broken skin.
- Buy only products that have medical approvals. Unregulated products might not list all the ingredients present.
- Try out alternatives. For example, if you are using bleach for your body hair, you may instead remove the hair by shaving or waxing. You can always go back to bleaching after your baby is born.
- If you get the bleach or skin whitening service at a parlour, check the products they use. Also, check if you need to keep a specific gap between services.
If you are unsure about a particular ingredient or product, you can always consult your doctor. If not just stay dark, being black hurt no one.
