Protecting the Most Vulnerable from the Dangers of the Sun

The sensitivity of the skin is heightened during pregnancy, so it is important to not neglect the importance of wearing sunscreen.

Melasma, or ‘pregnancy mask’, is the appearance of irregular brown spots, spread across the face in blotches.  It can appear or worsen during pregnancy because of increased hormonal activity.

Care should be taken after giving birth, especially when breastfeeding, for the same reason.

As such, the use of a SPF50+ or SPF50 sunscreen is recommended from the beginning of pregnancy.

A Range of Products Tailored for Special Requirements

To meet these special requirements, Laboratoires de Biarritz designed a range of sunscreen products suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

The SPF50 Face Sunscreen along with the Tinted version (Ivory, Beige, Gold), the SPF50+ Face & Body Spray, the SPF50+ Family Face & Body Spray, and the SPF50+ Tinted Sunscreen Stick can all be used.

And to continue to take care of their skin after sun exposure, they can also use the After-Sun Fluid and the SPORT After-Sun Fluid with peace of mind.

During pregnancy and after the birth of your child, we will be at your side providing optimal protection, safety you can trust.
