Introducing the Pregnancy Skin Care Kit

At La Clinica, we are so often asked “What skincare is safe to use while pregnant?”. It can be a confusing time with all the sudden changes, and food and drink that needs to be avoided. To help you along this journey, we’ve done the hard work for you, introducing the Pregnancy Skin Care Kit.

What happens to skin during pregnancy

While the ‘pregnancy glow’ may or may not have blessed you, pregnancy can often cause havoc on your skin. Many women experience acne, hyperpigmentation (often referred to as the ‘mask of pregnancy’) and irritated skin during this time. If it isn’t already enough to be dealing with the surging hormones and bodily changes!

What skincare to avoid during pregnancy

Vitamin A (retinol / retinal) and Salicylic Acid are great for many skin conditions, however doctors tend to recommend avoiding these ingredients during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Some women find that their skin becomes more sensitive during this time so can't tolerate products that used to be just fine. But don’t despair, there are still many amazing active ingredients that you still can use safely with low irritation, which is why we’ve put together this pregnancy-safe yet effective skin care kit designed to keep your skin radiant and your mind at ease. 

 

How the Pregnancy Skin Care Kit cares for your skin during pregnancy


The products in this kit focus on:

  • hydration
  • maintaining a healthy skin barrier
  • regulating sebum 
  • helping prevent pigmentation 
  • ensuring skin is as bright and radiant as it can ever be

All while making sure the ingredients are safe for you and the mini one! 

 

LA CLINICA Pregnancy Skin Care Kit 

 

The Pregnancy Skin Care Kit includes:


Sensitive Skin Cleanser

Gentle enough for delicate, irritated or inflamed skin, but works efficiently to remove makeup and daily build-up. All while ensuring your skin is nourished and hydrated, never stripped of its natural moisture.


Essentials Deep Hydration Moisture Cream

A fragrance free, hero ingredient filled moisturiser. A dash of this on your skin will leave your skin feeling plump, nourished, and fully hydrated without the heavy, greasy feeling often associated with rich moisturisers.


Brightening Level 1 Serum

This pigmentation fighting product contains ingredients such as Turmeric extract, Niacinamide, N-acetyl glucosamine, Dermawhite and Peptides. All targeted towards alleviating the appearance of pigmentation (dark spots, melasma, post blemish markings) and brightening the skin. 


Brightening Correction Peel

A chemical exfoliant containing Mandelic and Lactic acids, great for reducing breakouts and keeping the skin hydrated. Gentler on the skin than most AHA’s, together, these Hydroxy Acids provide increased cell turnover and exfoliation for a brighter more radiant complexion. Turmeric, licorice, and mulberry extracts aid in alleviating pigmentation. This exfoliator is not for everyday use, once-a-week only. Stick to the instructions.


Essentials Vitamin C Ultra Serum

An easily tolerated, lightweight Vitamin C serum that is formulated with soothing extracts of Centella and Hyaluronic Acid for hydration. Containing 3 Vitamin C derivatives for glowy skin and an even complexion.


Essentials Nourshing Facial OIl

Containing powerhouse emollients, Squalane, Jojoba, Chia seed, Argan and Rosehip oil. Each of these working together to soften and moisturise the skin, but also provide anti-inflammatory and soothing effects. A unique dehydrated hyaluronic acid suspended in a fatty acid plumps skin and retains hydration that would typically be escaping. Creating a more hydrated, resilient and robust skin barrier.
