Some makeup not fetus-safe

…Sally Wadyka, in the NYT, says some products you use before getting pregnant are safe for you but maybe not once you are with passenger.

…Skin also changes during pregnancy and may turn brown in weird places.

…Retin-A affects skin DNA…so ditch Retinol, or any Vit A derivatives.

…Acne can raise its spotted head during pregnancy, but don’t use the old standby benzoyl peroxide, which is in many OTC products.

…Glycolic or lactic acid are OK as peels…they come from fruit and milk.

I found your site on BlogHer - I have a blog about training for the 3-Day walk for breast cancer as well as other health/fitness topics - would you be interested in a link or entry exchange?
