Pregnancy is a really important time in a person’s life. It is the perfect moment to pamper yourself and take care of your body, and therefore your baby.

But can something that you put on your skin affect your system or even your baby? Keep in mind that the skin is an organ, the largest one in fact; it is full of pores and does a great work absorbing what you slather on it. There are medicines and chemicals that work through skin patches and creams, so why we don’t put more thought when applying huge amounts of beauty products is a big mystery.
