Perricone MD Photo Plasma Broad Spectrum SPF 30
I had read that retinol and several other popular anti-aging agents found in moisturizers and creams can be harmful to fetuses when absorbed through an expectant mother’s skin, so the first thing I did when I saw the second plus sign on the test (besides call my husband) was run to Sephora to switch out my moisturizer. The Perricone MD Photo Plasma Broad Spectrum SPF 30 cream came highly recommended, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It’s safe for mama and baby and has a fluffy souffle-like texture, but it’s moisturizing enough for winter without greasiness. My skin tends to freak out when I switch creams, so I was especially concerned about the new-product-freakout combined with pregnancy hormones, but my skin has remained fairly even keel with the Photo Plasma and I’ve even avoided the dreaded winter flakiness.
