I'm early days into a high risk pregnancy - just wondered if I should be thinking a bit more about my skincare etc due to chemicals?
Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean cleanser (salycilic acid dodgy?) No7 Beautiful Skin moisturiser Nuxe facial oil (aromatherapy oils dodgy?) Nivea blue pot cream Nivea deodorant roll on Soap and Glory body wash, can't remember name but smells glorious, highly perfumed YSL or Bourjois HM foundation Palmers cocoa butter body moisturiser
Is there anything I should be avoiding? I know not to have hot baths or use retin a.
personally i would use natural or organic products. There are a number of chemicals you may want to avoid anyway - you can see a list here http://thepureemporia.com/ingredients-to-avoid but that's in general so not sure about pregnancy specific ones.
I avoided salicylic acid, any products with vit a derivatives, and a number of essential oils (can't remember specifically which ones, could probably google which ones could be avoided, but I know that many of them were too harsh for me anyway while I was pregnant). After experimenting with mineral foundations and natural deodorant, I quickly returned to my usual products though!! I've read to avoid anything highly perfumed as it messes with some or other - this may be just chemical scents though, I'm not sure? I couldnt stand really heavy scents in any case, they made me gag. Sorry, this probably isn't really that helpful!
