#Pregnancy can be a glorious time, but it can also be a confusing time, particularly when it comes to matters of beauty. Hormones throw your usual skin balance out of whack, and a glow on some complexions might be a greasy slick on others. Hair is simply pregnancy safe makeu different. And then there’s the more pressing matter of whether the products in your medicine cabinet are safe to use; even seasoned beauty editors find themselves squinting at the complex lists of ingredients, trying to discern which formulas are fair game and which aren’t. And products that may seem harmless on first impression—such as natural skin care—may actually be the opposite: Though it’s less commonly known, some essential oils have potentially risky side effects.
Fortunately, the FDA already does some of the work for us, as Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, a dermatologist in Manhattan, points out. The governmental organization categorizes ingredients by letters of the alphabet, ranging from safest to those that should be avoided at all costs: A, B, C, D, and X. Generally, only categories A and B are considered safe to use during pregnancy, but it can be challenging to parse which ingredients on the list are found in beauty products, and it’s up to women to scrutinize labels closely. As Dendy Engelman, MD, a Manhattan dermatologist who recently gave birth to a baby boy, puts it: “Just like you want to be on your A-game with food and health when you’re pregnant, you have to be that way with beauty and skin care, too.”
Below, a doctor-approved cheat sheet on beauty ingredients, products, and services to avoid.
Retin-A, retinol, and retinyl palmitate: Though it also resides in FDA category C, which technically means risk to the fetus cannot be ruled out, Albert Sassoon, MD, an ob-gyn in Manhattan, says this family of products is to be avoided at all costs. While vitamin A is c“getting too much can cause serious birth defects and liver toxicity,” he says. Also, though Retin-A is usually associated with prescription medication and skin care, plenty of over-the-counter formulations contain vitamin A derivatives like retinol and retinyl palmitate, both of which should be banned from your pregnancy beauty kit.
Benzoyl peroxide: Though pregnancy can often cause hormonal acne, unfortunately, the typical zit-zappers found over the counter, like benzoyl peroxide, fall in category C. “That means there’s some possible risk to the fetus, and a majority of ob-gyns I work with would say to avoid,” says Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas.
Essential oils: Essential oils are not assessed by the FDA, yet they are increasingly used in beauty products marketed as safe. “In general, essential oils can be extremely harmful if not used appropriately,” Dr. Sassoon says. “Often they have 50 times the concentration used in a cup of tea and can be harmful even in a nonpregnancy state. The problem also is that we don’t know how much of a specific oil is absorbed.” Dr. Engelman suggests that diluted essential oils are generally considered safe, but because there are so many different types available, it’s best to go over the safety of any product or individual oil with your doctor. Two commonly used essential oils, though, ring warning bells: tea tree oil and rosemary oil. “Tea tree oil is very potent and toxic when ingested,” says Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas. “Its adverse effects include dermatitis, drug reactions, a blistering disease called linear IgA, and estrogenic effects.” Pregnant women should steer clear of it because “possibly these hormonal effects are to blame for premature contractions.” Meanwhile, rosemary oil can “raise blood pressure and cause uterine contractions at high doses,” Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas adds. “To avoid.”
Salicylic acid: Also in category C, this ingredient is a particularly pesky one to sidestep. “It’s traditionally been used for acne, but now I see it in all kinds of exfoliating products, particularly cleansers,” Dr. Alexiades-Armenakas says. “So much of what’s out there right now are combination peels,” adds Dr. Engelman. “When you’re pregnant, you have to seek out the purer products—the ones that feature just one of the acids that are approved.” She points out that glycolic, lactic, and mandelic acids are all considered safe and are good options for someone who still wants some sloughing action.
