Can I use semi-permanent varnish or the LED lamp during my pregnancy?


Are you pregnant and wondering if it is reasonable to wear semi-permanent nail polish? The nail expert Maryton answers you in this article.

Pregnant, better to limit manicures

Expecting a child leads to some daily changes, both on the plate and in the bathroom. However, this does not mean that we must say goodbye to all pleasures and in particular, to the desire to have beautiful nails. Although a pregnant woman can continue to use manicure products, you still need to pay attention to their composition.

However, when we look at that of a semi-permanent varnish, it contains ingredients to avoid during pregnancy, including phthalates and toluene. In fact, nails, like the skin, do not form a barrier to these substances. Thus, they pass into the body. This is why it is recommended not to use semi-permanent varnish during pregnancy.

But if a pregnant woman really wants to treat herself to a manicure, she can do it from time to time, outdoors (on a terrace, in the garden, on a balcony, etc.) or in a well-ventilated room. In addition, it is advisable to wear a mask to inhale the gel substances as little as possible.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I recommend investing in some professional  manicure sets to care for your nails.
