So while I was pregnant I got some scars on my chin from breaking out. I bought Garnier Skin renew dark spot corrector and I called the ped to see if it is ok to use while breastfeeding and they said no based on the fact it had salicylic acid that it is not ok... umm I wash my face with salicylic acid twice a day for as long as I can remember, I had never been advised to change my face wash. Has anyone heard this before?
When I worked at Ulta we were taught by vendors that face wash and toner with Salicylic Acid were ok to be used 1 or 2 a day for pregnant and breastfeeding women, but products that needed to stay on the face longer like peels and masks were a no no, because they have enough time to absorb into the blood stream.
Ok that makes sense! So I guess I will wait to apply the corrector since it stays on my face all day That sucks I was really looking forward to fading these spots on my face, they drive me crazy!! Oh the things we put up with for our LOs
