When selecting skincare products, particular whitening cream, acne treatment, and anti-aging cream, new moms should avoid these two groups of ingredients:
1) Vitamin A and its derivatives (commonly known as retinoids or retinol) - present in many facial skincare products and prescribed acne treatment
2) Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide - present in many OTC and prescribed acne products
Moreover, there are many other ingredients new moms should avoid, such as aromatherapy oils, parabens, phthalates, and SLS because they can negatively impact fetal development and newborns.
Vitamin A and its derivatives (commonly known as retinoids or retinol) are your baby's No. 1 enemy, because they can negatively impact fetal development and cause miscarriage and/or birth defects. New moms should make sure to strictly avoid this ingredient during both pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Acne medication can cause serious harm for moms and babies, especially those that contain vitamin A or its derivatives (commonly known as retinoids or retinol).
