Beauty Care Regimen In Pregnancy?

Howdy Moms,

Currently i m using St Ives Moisturizer for body and Aveeno for Face... Also I am using Pantene shampoo for hair... But now when i m 8 weeks pregnant suddenly i am unsure of what to use and what not to because of the chemicals and sideeffects...

It would be great, if anybody throws some light on this issue....
Thanks in advance...

  • The only thing I know of that's a no-no is salicylic acid -

    - which is a main ingredient in a lot of acne treatments, some "exfoliating" washes or peels, and it's in carmex lip balm.
