    Safe Skincare during pregnancy???

    Hi ladies,

    I read that there are a few skincare components not safe during pregnancy. Retinoids - usually in anti aging products. Salicylic acid - acne products.

    Previously bought a full range Laneige whitening range and anti-aging range : ( And the ingredients are all in korean

    Read somewhere that whitening products may not be good too. Do share what products you are using? Thanks!

    It is not so much about the products but the ingredients that are used.

    Some of the ingredients that you should definitely avoid include Retinol and Hydroquinone. These ingredients lack studies to guarantee their safety for use during pregnancy and you should definitely avoid them.

    Ingredients like Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid are considered safe to use during pregnancy. You can normally check the labels on these products because they should show the concentration.

    We actually wrote a guide on Skincare and Pregnancy, you can check it out to learn more about what ingredients you should look out for and what ingredients are considered safe.
