Use Of Face Cream In Nursing Mothers?
Hello, I want to ask if breastfeeding mothers can use facial creams on the market, sorry like Wardah Garnier or Pond’s???
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. So far, there has always been a question about the use of cosmetics for breastfeeding mothers, and this has always invited controversy, even though the substance being discussed does clearly have a harmful impact on the baby.
For those who don't support it, the reason is because these chemicals can seep into the skin, enter the bloodstream, and end up in the breast milk consumed by the baby.
For those who support it, the reason is that the chemical substances that are absorbed by the body through the skin do not contain much, and do not reach dangerous levels when consumed by babies through breast milk.
There are also those who say it depends. That is, if the mother uses her cosmetics according to the rules, which are not too thick, and in an area that is not too wide, then there is no problem. However, if the cosmetics are thick and used on a large area, the body will absorb more and will be more dangerous.
So in conclusion, it might be safer if you don't use face cream, because there are still many controversies. Or for answers that may be more detailed, you can consult a dermatologist or doctor at a beauty clinic. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
