Skincare/supplements recommendations that are safe for pregnancy

I just found out I'm pregnant and am currently in Japan on a holiday. Seems like i cannot just use any skincare products/supplements when pregnant due to certain ingredients that are not safe for pregnancy. Any recommendations of good pregnancy safe skincare/supplements i can get in Japan?#advicepls #firsttimemom

Curel should be safe for moisturizer! can always get baby products for sunscreen if you’re concerned. For makeup I didn’t avoid any actually.. I think as long as it doesn’t have ingredients like retinol, salicylate acid/strong acids shoukd be fine!

😭 My skincare and makeup has licorice root component which i have read online that it might cause placental development issues so I'm worried.

Avoid AHAs and BHAs too. My toner had that so I changed to nutrogena basic toner for now
