A trip to the spa while you are pregnant can be a great way to relax and unwind but before booking treatments, it is important to know which ones are safe.  

Facials 

Pregnancy can either be very good for your skin or it can cause all sorts of problems. A good facial can do wonders if hormones are causing your skin to become sensitive and there are plenty of products available specifically developed for this purpose. Some essential oils aren’t suitable for use on the skin of pregnant women so it is important to let your therapist know that you are pregnant when you book your facial.   

Botox injections  

Botox injections have become very popular due to their effectiveness in smoothing out wrinkles. While there is no evidence that it will harm your unborn baby the NHS advises not to use it.  

Applying fake tan  

There is currently no evidence that fake tan has adverse effects on pregnant women. Based on current knowledge, applying fake tan is certainly safer than getting too much sun or exposing your skin to burns.  

Waxing 

It may surprise you to hear that waxing should be avoided during the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy. After this your skin may well be more sensitive than usual so we recommend playing it safe and going for a standard leg waxing
