Self Tanning Lotions during Pregnancy
I know there isn't much research for/against self-tanning lotions or spray tanning when pregnant. I definitely don't want to harm my baby but I am trying to figure out if there are any safe tanning options. I have a spray tan package at a tanning salon that I am going to cancel now that I am pregnant. It seems that the main concern is breathing in the fumes and potential DHA absorption into the blood stream.
I am wondering if any self-tanning lotions are safe. There are some that are DHA free but I am not really sure about the other ingredients.
Also, does anyone know if there are certain sunscreens that shouldn't be used in pregnancy?
