PKMH Beauty And Wellness Recommendations

Your entire life changes the moment you find out you're pregnant. That might include your skin-care products as well. While it's common knowledge that you'll have to give up your favorite wine (sorry! ), having to give up your favorite skin care products may come as a surprise. But there's a reason why everyone's eyes are on your skin care products: some substances may be absorbed into your body, and hence into your baby's body.

While the majority of over-the-counter (OTC) body care items are completely safe for your child, there are a handful that might be harmful. So, here's the good news: you can find a balance between looking attractive and protecting your child while pregnant.


When purchasing beauty products during pregnancy, keep an eye out for harmful chemicals and additives to avoid. During pregnancy, it is advised to avoid dangerous chemicals and artificial additions. Ingredients like paraben, large levels of salicylic acid, and hydroquinone, among others, should be avoided in skincare products for the following reasons:

● Parabens: Parabens are a huge no-no during pregnancy since they're linked to a higher risk of cancer.

● Retinoids: It has been discovered that retinoids are linked to birth abnormalities. The usage of this additive may cause difficulties in the kid, such as congenital impairments and neuropsychological disorders.

● Hydroquinone: Although there is no definitive evidence that hydroquinone is linked to birth abnormalities, it is recommended to avoid using products containing this component during pregnancy since hydroquinone may be absorbed quickly via the skin, resulting in excessive quantities in the body.

● Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde is a type of preservative that is used to extend the shelf life of skin care products. However, items containing this component should not be used during pregnancy since they might cause infertility and miscarriage.

● Phthalates: Products containing phthalates should not be used during pregnancy because phthalates can cause hormonal and reproductive problems.
