Pregnancy-Safe Skincare: Ingredients to Avoid and Products to Use

There's a long list of ingredients that are off limits during pregnancy, but it doesn't mean you have to skip the skincare routine! With numerous changes in your skin due to hormones, you definitely need to switch up your go-to products for the next 9 months for a safer routine for you and your little one.

Make sure to avoid these skincare ingredients:

  • Retinoids
  • Chemical sunscreens
  • Hydroquinone
  • Pure / high concentration essential oils.
  • Ingredients such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide may require approval from your OB.
