During pregnancy, you could drive yourself crazy Googling the safety details of the skincare products you use every day. With so much conflicting information, and so little solid research done on the subject, it can be frustrating. All you’re trying to do is wash your face, and here comes Google telling you you’ll put a curse on your baby if your cleanser contains ulmus davidiana root extract.

In this episode Sarah talks with Dr. Aegean Chan to break down the typical questions about what products are safe for you and baby.

Note: This perspective on skincare/beauty is from Dr. Chan and Juna does not endorse a singular position on skincare during pregnancy. We are sharing knowledge from a credible source and encourage you to do your own research and come to a conclusion that works for you and your pregnancy.
