vitamin A cream in pregnancy Lock Rss

HI all,

I was reading a pregnancy magazine which outlined harmful beauty product ingredients in pregnancy. I checked my moisturiser and was horrifed to find that retinyl palmitate (a type of Vit A) was in it - which was advised to avoid. I am 14 wks pregnant and am worried I have done something really wrong!
Most skincare creams have minute amounts of vitamin A in them, nothing to worry about. The warnings are about prescription acne creams that have high strength vitamin A in them, and are only available on prescription for that reason. If you are worried, switch to a more basic moisturiser smile
