All soon-to-be mothers deserve that radiant, pregnancy glow. Some moms may just need a little help capturing it. With pregnancy, though, comes concerns over ingredients and the safety of skin products while there’s a little one depending on you to treat your body right. Here are three fabulous facial treatments that can have any expectant mom looking and feeling like the beautiful, powerful woman she is.
1. Oxygen Facials
Oxygen facials can give you that pregnancy glow through a safe, soothing stream of pure oxygen. This gentle jet stream can help increase circulation in dry, dull skin while promoting cellular renewal. It’s not just oxygen being blown into skin, however. Each oxygen blend is packed with ingredients like hyaluronic acid to plump fine lines, antioxidants to limit free radicals and vitamins or botanical extracts to target specific concerns.
2. Deep Cleansing Facials
A deep cleansing facial might be the most satisfying facial treatment for expectant mothers, especially those facing problem skin.
Deep cleansing facials use several steps to tackle skin troubles. Exfoliation, extraction, facial massage, a mask and a moisturizer can have even mothers with hormonal skin issues glowing after their treatment.
3. Exfoliating Facials
Exfoliating facial treatments can serve to smooth and soften dry, dull skin for many a mom-to-be. When you’re considering an exfoliating facial while pregnant, though, it’s best to avoid harsher treatments like microdermabrasion. Turn to milder exfoliators like lactic acid or glycolic acid. You can also use an at-home, gentle exfoliating body scrub with natural sugar and soothing oils can help soothe dry skin and prevent stretch marks.
The best type of facial for an expectant mom is one that leaves her clean, refreshed and full of that beautiful pregnancy glow.
