That pregnancy glow that everyone talks about – Yeah. I don’t have that.  What I do have is inflamed, red, painful, nonstop acne and proneness to hyperpigmentation and scarring.

Good thing I work with a Master Esthetician 😉 – McKenna Green, LME recommended some pregnancy-safe products that have healed my breakouts quickly, reduced inflammation (which leads to hyperpigmentation and scarring), and helped me maintain wrinkle-free, smooth skin (when possible).


Oil Control Pads | ZO Skin Health
Helps with any active acne and keeps my oily parts at bay. hello salicylic acid, goodbye acne.

BrightAlive | ZO Skin Health
I’m convinced this has helped keep my scarring to a minimum. It’s also aided in combating redness at the onset of a new breakout.

Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment | skinbetter science
I LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER. (I also use it at night)

UV Clear SPF 46 (tinted) | EltaMD
Is a lightweight, oil-free sunscreen that you should be using NO MATTER WHAT. Your skin can be ultra-sensitive to sun damage with pregnancy so this is very important. The formula is great for acne-prone skin but has enough protection to prevent dark spots.


Exfoliating CleanserZO Skin Health
Is also a salicylic acne cleanser (enough said).

Dual Action Scrub | ZO Skin Health
Again……..salicylic acid, but add exfoliating components to it. (My husband steals this ALL the time. Beware.)

Calming Toner | ZO Skin Health
The final step prior to applying my serums for a clean and clear canvas. If you didn’t understand I’m focused on preventing and healing breakouts, now you do.

Active Serum | IS Clinical
This has replaced my retinol. It’s great for fine lines and acne-prone skin but is pregnancy safe.

Restorative Eye Treatment | Alastin Skincare
Everyone, expecting or not, needs a good eye cream. Now this one is a phenomenal choice. I’ve been able to see a difference in my tired, puffy, dark eyes from all this exhaustion. Need I say more?

A HUGE shoutout to McKenna (@kenna_aesthetics) for letting me pick her brain.

Updated May 2022
We have been fully operational since May of 2020. This includes skincare and our non-invasive center (ENIC).
We know that so much of this pandemic caused an inconvenience for you, but we are delighted to see a return to normalcy. 
We will continue to be vigilant in our approach to Covid 19. For over two decades, we have considered safety as our most important prerogative — and there has never been a more important time to put that to use.
Here are some things we’re doing to ensure you are protected and that we maintain this facility as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) zone:

Patient Flow and Clinical Office Space

We now have a well-tested protocol of texting patients for control of flow for consultations.
We are assigning everyone to hourly wipe-downs of high-use areas with approved sanitizing wipes.
We are asking that no one wait in the waiting area.
We are coming up with protocols for room wipe-downs after each patient visit.
Every staff member will always wear a mask while in the office.
Every staff member will sanitize or wash hands after every interaction.
Implementation of virtual pre-ops, nursing visits, and questions.

Operating Room Experience

Similar precautions and questionnaires will be provided to establish Covid-19 Clear Status.
All staff will always wear a mask. All staff will always wear gloves.
Hand washing will be done for any patient interaction.
Specific wipe-down of our operating room, recovery, and pre-op areas will be performed.
We will minimize accompanying caretakers to only one. Those caretakers will be treated just like the patients.
Anesthesia Experience
Every anesthesia staff will wear goggles and other protective equipment during intubation.
Our anesthesiologists have been fully trained and are implementing all precautions for prevention of Covid-19 spread.
All circuits will be changed between each patient.
Full wipe-down of surfaces and floors will be performed.
We will implement a time-out protocol to confirm the Covid-19 Clear Status of every patient.

As you can see, we are taking this very seriously. We fully understand that this will cause some inconvenience in the short term, but realize that it is for the best.
Although Covid-19 has been a serious issue, we are seeing a resumption of normalcy. We continue to monitor this situation on a real-time basis, and we will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
When you see us in action, you’ll realize that you have put your trust in the right practice.
