regarding facials for breastfeeding moms

hi! i've been breastfeeding my 9month old son now.
unfortunately, i'm also in need of a facial. i've had herbal facials done before (which have not affected my milk). it has become quite expensive so i'm thinking of just getting the regular facial (i guess with chemicals?). my question is, have u done this while breastfeeding? how did it affect your milk?

  • Not sure what chemicals you would be exposed to. My lady is on the natural side of things though so maybe it's different? I wouldn't hesitate though would feel great!

  • Go right ahead. Topicals are NOT a worry unless they're going on your nipples.
