3 Face Washes That Are Safe for Pregnant Women

By Joseph King , last updated December 4, 2011

Chemicals in certain beauty products can be damaging or harmful to women who are pregnant. For that reason, if you are pregnant and looking for face wash products, it is important to buy those that are safe for you and your baby. Generally, you want to avoid products that use artificial chemicals and instead buy those that are all natural or organic. Here are three great face washes that are safe for pregnant women.

Belli Acne Clearing Facial Wash

Stress and hormonal changes can cause breakouts during pregnancy. Unfortunately, most medicines and face washes designed to combat acne are not safe for use by pregnant women. This face wash from Belli solves this problem by using natural lactic acid rather than artificial acids to kill acne-causing bacteria. Lactic acid also is gentler on your skin and help prevent drying and redness that can be caused by harsher face washes.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

This gentle product from Cetaphil will help remove makeup from your face without irritating your skin, which is often much more sensitive during pregnancy. It has no fragrances or dyes, which helps limit the number of chemical that come into contact with your skin. The product is designed to leave your natural oils and moisture undisturbed to prevent damage to the skin.

Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar

Like the other products, this one is excellent because of its simplicity and lack of extra chemicals for scent or color. It can be used for any type of sensitive skin, but is great to use as a face wash for pregnant women because it won’t damage your sensitive skin and there are no dangerous chemicals that could be absorbed into your body. This bar is the number one recommended bar by dermatologists for those with sensitive skin and is completely hypoallergenic.
