Hi all! I'm just in panic for no reason I think
For the last 2-3 months I've been using my favourite Dior face cream and ultimately I bought the new XP product from the same brand. Yesterday a friend of mine- pregnant too- told me her GP suggested she stop using anti-wrinkle creams and stuff cause they could harm baby. I did a little research and saw that only these ingredients are not safe to use:
Retin-A, Renova (tretinoin)
Tazorac and avage (Tazarotene)
An article said: If you realize you have used a product that contains one of the potentially harmful ingredients noted above, don't panic. Simply stop using the product now and pick one with known-to-be-safe ingredients.
"Most over-the-counter products by reputable brands are safe," she says. "And if you are applying these products to less than 10 percent of your total skin surface, the risks of systemic effects are very low."
My cream doesn't contain any of this but I will not use it again for precaution..
What do you think?
There's all sorts of things like this....some I take notice of and some I don't. If it were really that dangerous like some essential oils etc then it would have to be labelled "do not use during pregnancy" or something like that.
If it were me I would just use it a couple of times a week and use something like a "Simple" moisturiser the rest of the time. By the way, you can get the Simple range of beauty products including baby stuff from Poundland
Forgot to say earlier, I've been using bio oil on my face after cleansing in the bath - wouldn't recommend it in the morning before going out but I've found it's really good for moisturising especially if you don't dry your face first
The eucerin is not greasy and thats why i changed to that as my hair was getting greasy and stuck to my face to much with other stuff i used lol My face used to get dry from riding the bike about alot, not so much now that i am off it though. But like the eurcerin.
