Hi everyone! I hope you’re doing ok! Today I wanted to talk about face painting and pregnancy. I’ve had a couple of occasions where I’ve been painting at events and someone has come up to me and asked ‘I’m pregnant, is it safe for me to have my face painted?’
The good news is yes, yes you can! Face paints are completely safe to use, and do not contain any toxic or potentially harmful ingredients, they’re even hypo allergenic, and contain antibacterial properties! The only occasions where I would refuse to paint anyone would be if you asked me to paint a child under the age of 3, if someone was ill or had a rash or broken skin, if they had had an allergic reaction to face paint in the past, or if they don’t want to be painted! I am also always happy to do patch tests on people who once had an allergic reaction to face paints, or who have never had their face painted but have sensitive skin.
So unless you have previously had an allergic reaction to face paint, or meet any of the other criteria for not having your face painted, there is absolutely no reason why I can’t paint your face while you are pregnant, or even your bump! Maternity art is such a great way to celebrate your pregnancy, and I love creating cute, bespoke designs for mums to be!
I hope this has been useful, and if you have any questions, I would love for you to leave me a comment or to get in touch!
