Hello للنا ان,
When pregnant and breastfeeding, pregnant and lactating mothers should pay attention to what is used, including in terms of skincare and cosmetics. In general, breastfeeding mothers are allowed to use cosmetics, but it must be noted what content is contained in the cosmetics used.
Some of the skincare and cosmetic ingredients that should be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding include salicylic acid (salicylic acid), retinoids (except by prescription and regular check-ups with the treating doctor), phthalates, oxybenzone, AHAs (except on prescription), steroids ( unless prescribed by a doctor), hydroquinone, formaldehyde, mercury, and parabens.
If you want to use cosmetics while breastfeeding, choose cosmetics that are friendly for pregnant and lactating women. You can directly ask the beauty advisor (BA / SPG) for the cosmetic product you are going to use, whether the product is safe for nursing mothers or not. Another step, you can use natural products / natural-based ingredients, or you can also read the composition of each cosmetic product used. If it does not contain hazardous materials, then please use it. The most important thing is that the ingredients are safe and you use them as needed and not too much.
