Pregnancy can be an overwhelmingly joyous occasion; inciting excitement, new experiences and several lifestyle changes. Expectant women are advised to avoid certain foods (i.e. sushi), certain activities, and alcohol, to ensure the health and safety of baby and mother. Likewise, precaution should be applied to skin products. Many skin products contain potentially harmful ingredients. Prescription retinoids, over-the-counter retinol, hydroquinone, benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, are common ingredients in many skincare brands that pose notable risk during pregnancy.
A holistic approach to skincare is the most optimal and safest way to address any pregnancy related skin conditions. Osmosis MD promotes the concept of treating pregnancy related skin conditions naturally by rebuilding the rapidly depleted dermis, caused by chronic inflammation during pregnancy.
Osmosis MD products contain the highest quality ingredients, safe for both mother and baby. All topical Osmosis skin products may be used safely throughout the pregnancy. Unlike most Vitamin A serums on the market, Osmosis Vitamin A serums are exceptionally safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, due to the low percentage of retinaldehyde. The recommended daily allowance of Vitamin A during pregnancy is 2,500 IU’s, and 4,000 IU’s while breastfeeding. Osmosis Vitamin A serums do not exceed 300 IU’s per day, even if used twice daily. However, with the use of any active ingredients and products during pregnancy, usage should be discussed with your doctor first.
Natural radiance of the skin during pregnancy can be maintained and balanced with the Osmosis MD ReVita Pen-Medi infusion treatment, a therapeutic concentration of nutrition delivered to the skin by a means of a needless micro-channeling device. This treatment stimulates 30 days of collagen production, reduces inflammation, and normalizes pigmentation. ReVita Pen-Medi Infusion boosts elastin production, normalizes oil production, reduces inflammation, and restores the epidermal barrier. The ultimate result of this holistic therapy is a luminous, healthy pregnancy glow.
