Self Tanner During Pregnancy

Did You Use Self-Tanner While Pregnant?

Vain mamas-to-be maintain their appearances during their nine months by keeping up their hair color, exercise routines, manicures and pedicures. When it comes to their complexions, some expectant ladies shield themselves from the sun as the skin becomes more sensitive and prone to burn. Self-tanning cream can accelerate the motherly glow for those women. While some may question the dangers of applying such lotions or sprays while carrying a child, others deem them safe. What's your take on self-tanning lotions during pregnancy?

If you're not supposed to put chemicals on your body while pregnant, then no makeup and no sunscreen either! Ugh. Women are pregnant, not dead! Geez. People freak out too much.

I dont agree that liking those things makes you vain, at all. Thats a pretty wide sweeping statement. But what I also dont agree with is that if you dont do those things, you dont care about your bodies and youre just letting it go to "seed". Not everything has to be chemical and fake. You can take care of yourself naturally and not look like a hobo.

Doesnt the swimsuit only have about an spf of 5 anyway, as far as the bikini thing goes. Chemicals on the body are never good, even if they arent neccesarily bad. Its just one more thing thats optional, so why have it circulating through your system while youre baby is growing inside of you? I dont think once or twice for pictures or whatever is a huge deal, but it goes back to the whole optional thing. Plus i second the fact that looking orange is hideous.. its always hideous. We arent oompa loompas.

I read somewhere that you should not wear bikinis while pregnant because the sun exposure directly on the skin through to the baby is not healthy. Tons of pregnant women still do it, but I didn't think it was good for me.

I used the gradual tanner when I was pregnant with my first, I had professional pictures taken, and a little color in my opinion was needed so I didn't look sick.

I am one of those people that thinks tanning is tacky and there is nothing worse than that lovely orange glow you can get from self tanner... well maybe a glowing orange pregnant woman.

Yes, and I lay out in the sun because it's relaxing.

I never used tanning products before I got pregnant. I am Minnesota white and I don't think that will ever change.
