The cosmetic treatments that are ok during pregnancy
For many women, pregnancy is the most wonderful time of their lives. For others, it can be really tough. Swollen feet, back pain, bloating… the list goes on. “Everyone tells you you’re beautiful and glowing, but the fact is that many women don’t feel it. It’s very common for women to feel unattractive,” says Sydney-based cosmetic physician Dr Anoop Rastogi. “And it is certainly understandable that they want to reach out to their beauty therapist or specialist to help themselves feel more attractive.”
Before you do, check if the procedure is safe for your unborn baby, as well as for when you are breastfeeding.
If you really want to colour your hair, have foils or balayage as the product doesn’t actually touch the scalp.
