Exclamation Question about Pregnancy and face soaps and moisturizers

Hi all!

Just wondering.....
I know when you're pregnant you have to be careful with chemicals.......
Can anyone tell me what they use on their face for a moisturizer and for soap?

For example, I use Neutrogena (blue bottle) face soap and Clinique dramatically different moisturizer - I was wondering if it's still safe to use them......and I was also wondering what everyone else uses on their face while they're pregnant.

Thanks so much ladies....

Re: Question about Pregnancy and face soaps and moisturizers

i use the same stuff i used pre-preg. the only change i made is that i stopped using acne cream. i read that face washes with salicylic acid are okay, but that moisturizers & spot treatment cream should be cut out (nothing that is over 2% salicylic acid). also, donít use anything containing hydroquinone (like skin bleaches), any glycolic acid in strengths over 8%, or things that contain a lot of vitamin A. sounds like what you're using should be fine as long as you don't need to change your beauty regimen due to skin changes during pregnancy. hope this helps.
