Sunless tanning lotion?

Does anyone have any information about using sunless tannning lotion while you are pregnant? My legs are soooo darn white and I would love a little color on them. I don't sit and bake in the sun so I was hoping that I could get a little color this way.

I haven't read anything about this and figured it was more a matter of choice - similar to hair dyes, etc. Anyone have some feedback and not just opinions?

Thanks!

I used it during my entire pregnancy and my OB told me it was fine. I loved the stuff. I used it at least 3 times a week and my ds is perfect. It only penetrates the first layer of skin.

Thanks skeeters.

I had my 21 week check up this morning and asked the doctor if it was ok to use. She said it was fine. Yeah.......no more pasty white legs!

I'm so glad you posted this!! I think I read somewhere that topical treatments are assumed to be safe (OTC stuff like benzoyl peroxide)... Never thought about the sunless stuff (I use it too). Thanks for the info.

Re: Sunless tanning lotion?

I just asked my dr at my last check up and she said some are safe and some are not. She said that they generally do a very good job of informing you on the bottle if you should be concerned or not so if you go with a reputable brand (like maybe not some weird thing from the .99 store or something) and you read the back carefully and there are no warnings then it should be fine. I use Jergens Natural Glow, works good and no warnings but it doesn't smell the best.
