CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’RE PREGNANT! AND, YOU’RE GLOWING!
Did you know that the skin care products you use might pose a health risk to you and your baby?
You may not know it, but there are a lot of dangerous skincare products to avoid while pregnant. We are giving you some of the harmful ingredients in your skincare products which are not safe for you and your baby. You can use this helpful guide when you are purchasing skincare products. Just a sweet reminder, always remember to look at the ingredients in the products that you buy whether you are pregnant or not.
1. Retinoids are a big no-no during pregnancy.
It is extremely powerful and is found in many anti-aging creams, acne creams and pigment disorders. Retinoid is one of the top dangerous skincare products to avoid while pregnant because of its high doses of vitamin A that can be harmful to the developing baby. Experts recommend that all pregnant women should stay away from retinoids. Although topical application may not harm the baby, it’s best just to not use it at all.

2. While you’re pregnant, not all essential oils are safe to use.
Do you love essential oils? Do you use lavender before going to bed? Or peppermint to alleviate your headaches? Or lemon to promote healthy circulation? Essential oils can be used in so many different ways because it is natural. Many experts are against the use of essential oils in any form during the first trimester.

3. Hydroquinone is one product to avoid until after your baby is born.
Studies have shown that as much as 35 to 45 percent of this medication is absorbed into the skin during topical application. While no studies have yet been conducted on the effect of hydroquinone on a fetus, it’s best to minimise the use.
Products containing hydroquinone can be prescribed for treating conditions such as chloasma and melasma, which causes pigmentation changes and is a common skin condition in pregnancy. But after your baby is born, melasma usually gets better on its own.

4. Avoid benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid during pregnancy.
Having acne during pregnancy is quite common so you should choose your acne creams carefully. Many of the commonly used acne creams contain combinations of benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid to manage acne. Generally these ingredients are not recommended for hypersensitive skin. This is a bad news for new moms for whom practically all will experience extra sensitivity to just about everything, including salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. High doses of these acids in its oral form have been shown in studies to cause birth defects and various pregnancy complications.
