Skincare when Breastfeeding ( Things to Avoid)

Updated: Aug 31, 2021

You have been extra careful for 9 months while waiting for your baby to finally come out. You slashed caffeine, avoided alcohol, and of course, the raw foods. While not all skincare products are harmful to your baby, there are some that you may want to avoid while breastfeeding as well. And you need to be extra mindful when dealing with skincare products to avoid problems not only for you but for your little one.


Breastfeeding your child is meant to be a wonderful bonding between you and your baby. And to make it worthwhile, Matykos Beauty has some tips to make you enjoy this life journey without stopping you from doing your most-loved skincare ritual.

Below are the skincare ingredients that you need to avoid :

  1. Retinoids -As dermatologists recommend, the retinoids should be avoided ( both oral and topical retinoids).

  2. BHA or Beta Hydroxy acid - It contains oral salicylic acid which is a big no-no during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  3. Salicylic Acid- High doses of salicylic acid should be avoided. It can be harmful to your newborn as it can pass into the breastmilk.

And here are the things that you may consider :

  1. Cruelty-free skincare - Matykos Beauty culture gives importance to safe and quality products. These are not only gentle to humans but also harmless to animals. It’s vegan and organic that gives you peace of mind while breastfeeding.

  2. Natural ingredients - Take advantage of nature’s goodness. It’s good for your skin and safe for babies.

  3. No parabens- It can act like an estrogen hormone in the body that may affect the entire hormone system in the body.
