Skincare products during pregnancy
My husband and I are TTC and I've got some concerns about the skincare products I'm using. Mostly, I use natural products, but I have some problems with adult acne and am currently using a moisturiser containing AHAs (glycolic acid, lactic acid and hyalauronic acid). I know these are safe, but my concern is that this product also contains salicylic acid, which isn't considered completely safe to use during pregnancy. I'm aware that most problems with salicylic acid arise from consuming internally (such as aspirin), but I don't want to take any unnecessary risks. However, I'm loathe to give up this moisturiser as it's really helping my skin! I'm not sure of the specific concentration of salicylic acid in this product, but it's from a dermatologist, so it's probably fairly high. Thoughts?
