Regardless of the brand, certain active ingredients are not recommended in pregnancy. For instance, Ingredients such as retinoids, AHA (fruit acids) or BHA (salicylic acid) should be generally avoided throughout pregnancy and while breastfeeding. In the case of Dr. Liv Skincare, we recommend skipping the Smoothing Cleanser and Overnight Smoother until after pregnancy/end of breastfeeding as they contain AHA/BHA. The Biome Barrier and the Day Shield are safe to use in pregnancy. The use of an SPF is even highly recommended in pregnancy to avoid hyperpigmentation. If in doubt, we recommend consulting your doctor regarding any concerns.
