So you guys know that RoC Skincare Ambassador and part of the fun of that is turning my friends and family on to RoC products. Well, it worked really well for my BFF, as it became part of her regular routine (*we are talking day cream, night cream, eye cream, resurfacing system – the works!). Then she found out she was pregnant. Now, being super cautious, we wanted to make sure that it was okay for her to continue using the Retinol based products during her pregnancy. So, I sent a question over to my friends at RoC for their opinion and this is what they said:
We recommend that she first consults her doctor before continuing any retinol regimen, since retinol is a type of Vitamin A, which in high doses during pregnancy can be harmful to an unborn child. Although there are no studies showing that Retinoids in their topical form have caused harm to pregnant women, doctors generally advise staying away from retinol during pregnancy.
As a suggested alternative, your friend can try a rich moisturizer such as the RoC Multi Correxion Lift Anti-Gravity Night Cream, which temporarily plumps skin and helps mask fine lines. She can also try products containing anti-oxidants, which help combat the appearance of environmental damage.
So, I passed that along to my BFF and she rushed out and bought some of the RoC Multi Correxion Lift Anti-Gravity Night Cream:
Her exact quote when she sent me this pic? “Love love love this by RoC!!!”
So, there you have it – if you have a pregnant friend, or are pregnant yourself, and have been on a Retinol regimen, then my BFF can highly recommend making the switch over to the retinol-free RoC Night Cream.
