    Is it safe to use makeup during pregnancy?

    It is quite disturbing how cosmetic products can have potentially harmful chemicals that can be absorbed by our body, and in turn affect our unborn child. Most women won’t be told by their doctors to stop wearing makeup or choose products with safer ingredients during pregnancy, but there are mixed opinions on the matter — some suggest to do the switch, while others say that there is nothing to worry about. We urge you to talk to your doctor about this concern just to be on the safe side.
