When pregnant or breastfeeding, unfortunately, many of our skincare products have to be excluded from our routines. However, this is for the overall health and safety of you and your baby. For example, chemical peels and retinol use should be discontinued until after you finish breastfeeding. We often get the question, “Is ferulic acid safe during pregnancy?”
Pure ferulic acid serum should not be used during pregnancy or when nursing. It is considered an ingredient on par with retinol. If included in small amounts with other ingredients, it may be safe. However, you should always use caution and discuss this with your doctor before using. If you have any concerns, it is best to steer clear of the product.
Thankfully, most basic Vitamin C serums are perfectly fine to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. This can help maintain your skin until you can begin your full regimen again. Also, your skin can become more sensitive during pregnancy, so many of your regular products may cause increased irritation.
