Did you change your sunscreen when pregnant?

Firstly, congrats!

 

I changed to a physical sunscreen. Maybe not necessary but chemical sunscreens kind of freaked me out when I was pregnant. A physical sunscreen put my mind at ease.

 

Shiseido has a good one but it leaves you VERY white. Keihls has one with a universal tint to it (but on the pink side). Otherwise look for kid friendly physical sunscreens.

Bah, no, I didn’t know anything about it. Now feeling slightly better that I spent the summer mostly inside puking my guts out instead of on the beach. 😝

Happy Turkey day!

Nope. But I just wore a bit on my face as part of my daily routine and didn’t have a need for anything more since I had a March baby.

mus1ca1xo :  I did, I wear La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen under my makeup, on my neck, and on my hands/forearms daily and never changed that up when pregnant.

mus1ca1xo :  I also didn’t change sunscreens. I am incredibly fair and freckly and burn very quickly/easily so I wasn’t risking any new sun products not working well enough for me and ending up with a burn! Kid is totally fine.

I wore the ThinkBaby sunscreen, which is what most of my (Canadian) friends wore. I think Whole Foods sells it. It definitely needs more rubbing in than a chemical one but it smelled awesome haha. I figured if your skin if your biggest organ, may as well try minimize chemicals being absorbed through it. It wasn’t any more expensive than most of the other sunscreens out there!

I didn’t wear sunscreen while pregnant other than on my face. I don’t really wear sunscreen unless I’m at the beach actually.

Yes I did switch. I liked Bare Republic brand mineral sunscreen.

mus1ca1xo :  I would have worn my usual spf 50 spray banana boat on my hands and face, and on arms and legs the three times I managed to get to the beach. I had never heard that chemical sunblock should be avoided during pregnancy so didn’t make the switch.
