Are you checking all these things for certain ingredients or not?


Also, what do you know to be ingredients we pregnant women should avoid in these products?


Thanks,


Kitty

Hi, Kitty


I didn't have to stop using any of my products while I was pregnant. I guess it would depend on what exactly you are using. If you are concerned about anything I would talk it over with your doctor as soon as you can.

Thanks. I've heard some people check everything they use and othes just continue using. I just wondered people's thoughts. I'm trying to be very careful but also reasonable. :)

When I asked my doctor about my skin care products she told me that anyting that has 'retin' or says 'anti-aging' should be avoided.
