One of the biggest changes a woman’s body can go through is being pregnant. From there on women experience an increase in androgen levels. This often leads to an increase or worsening of acne and hair growth on different parts of the body. While struggling to still look their best in this important time, many women start using different types of skincare to help battle these conditions.
Certain skincare ingredients you should avoid using during pregnancy. Skincare products applied can be absorbed through the skin and impact your baby.
What you apply on your skin is crucial. Chemicals that found in drugstore skincare products, when used long term, can be harmful for your skin as well as to your health. Most of the times, the size of molecule determines whether they are able to penetrate across your skin layers, and be absorbed by your body.
