Toxic Items for Your Skin


When you’re pregnant, the products you use on your skin are more important than ever. Everything you’re consuming, your baby is consuming. When you eat a nutritious diet, your developing infant also benefits from those vitamins and minerals, and when you apply skin products or use household cleansers, both you and your baby are absorbing them. If you use products that contain toxic chemicals, you risk injury to both yourself and your little one. When you use safe products, you protect your child from potential harm. As a mom who wants to give your growing offspring the best start possible, it’s vital to research the ingredients in the personal care products and household chemicals you use.


Consider how many products touch your skin each day — makeup, lotion, soap, polish. Then, think about this: Several of the most ordinary, commonplace household products include harmful substances. Believe it or not, everything from laundry detergent to cleaning solutions to sunscreen can contain toxins.


When you reach for that antibacterial hand soap, for example, you may think you’re killing germs but you’re also exposing your body to triclosan. This substance often causes skin irritation and, even more worrisome, could potentially cause you to develop antibiotic resistance. 


So, whether you just found out you’re pregnant or are several months along, it’s never too late to think about the everyday products and chemicals you’re using. To get more information about common dangers, take a look at the attached resource. In it, you’ll find seven surprising items that can contain toxins — and learn why you should consider dropping them from your daily routine.
