Hi Peeps! :D

I am pregnant and absolutely gagging to have some beauty treatments done - in fact, I think I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms :lol:

Anyhoo basically wanted to know, are the following treatments, safe? Or not? :?:

1) Hopi Ear Candles

2) Eyelash Tint


Also, beautician reckons she can do a facial safely - but I want to be sure. What should be avoided? :confused: Don't want to put my bump at risk :sad:


Pls help!

Ta muchly! xx

PS - I'm somewhere between 16 and 21 weeks. (Doctor and midwife say 21, hospital say 16 - go figure!! :rolleyes: :lol: )

Hi

Congratulations!

You will be fine with all those treatments you just need to be cautious with essential oils. I use dermalogica in my salon and there are a couple of toxin releif products that carnt be used on a pregnant lady due to the high content of certain essential oils . Carnt remember which ones sorry.
I do know you should avoid clary sage HTH

Ear candling is absolutly fine.
