hi ladies. is it safe to apply fake tan when you are pregnant? i have heard that the baby is at no risk and that your skin is just more sensitive during pregnancy or you could have an allergic reaction? what do you think?

Self tanners are suppose to be safe..but there have not been signifigant studies on tanning creams to state otherwise. The tanning cream companies claim that the dye can only penetrate the first layer of skin. But like anything in pregnancy..make sure you do this in moderation..too much of anything can be bad in my opinion. However I use tanning creams on occasion..especially on my face to give me a glow...I am in my 12th week. Kristin

thanks. i am seeing my doc tomorrow so will check with her. i would never use a sun bed anyway. i am pretty sure they must be safe as surely moisturisers and bath washes wouldnt be safe either!!
