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.
