Ingredients to avoid during pregnancy (Skincare Safety Tips)

Here’s something to think about… If you shouldn’t be using these skincare products when pregnant to avoid harming the baby… Then is that a sign that we shouldn’t be using them at all? 🤔 Do you think that hairdressers and manicurists birth less healthy children than licensed realtors due to the increased contact with skincare ingredients and environmental toxins they work with?

This is your one-stop video for everything you need to know about keeping your baby safe during pregnancy. The journal studies that I gathered this information from are fully cited in this video too so you know you are getting the most up-to-date scholarly data 🤓 So many in fact I couldn’t fit them all into this video description
