What is okay to use when pregnant???

I am always worried about things I use such as lotions etc hurting the baby. What about things like alpha hydroxy, other facial additives??? What about herbal teas??? I love my Detox tea but havent used it since becomign pregnant??

Any kind of body detox's you can do while bf'ing??

I don't think you are supposed to use AHA's when pg, but I'm not sure. Have you checked with your ob or midwife? He/she should be more informed about possible risks and what is okay to use. Good luck!
