Pregnancy is a beautiful yet daunting time. Mothers-to-be have a lot to take care of, from the number of hours they sleep to what they are putting into their body during meals. However, one area they tend to neglect is their skincare. Moreover, when it comes to skincare and haircare, moms-to-be are often concerned about the safety of certain products. Is it safe to use skincare or makeup products that contain parabens and sulfates during the gestation period? This is a valid concern that several women have during pregnancy.

Sharing a video on Instagram, Dr Kiran Sethi addresses the concerns of most mothers as to whether if it is safe to use products that contain chemicals such as paraben. "Skin acts as a barrier to stop dirt and pollution from getting absorbed into the body," she said, adding that this is also why many products fail to solve pigmentation issues. "These items cannot penetrate into the skin," she said. Dr Kiran Sethi advises that it is okay to use a product with chemicals once in a while as it does not get absorbed into your body as the skin is a strong protective layer. "Don't worry," she stressed.
