Face peels and masks during pregnancy

Anyone know which types of facial peels and masks are safe to use during pregnancy? I'm at the end of my second trimester and have a ton of facial products begging me to use them again.

Thanks. The only thing he told me to avoid is acne products. I'd have to ask about specific ingredients if I want a precise answer.

Definitely ask your OB/GYN. but i do believe you should avoid active ingredients like salicylic and glycolic acids.

The only thing I stayed away from was retinol.  Supposedly it's safe if not used excessively but why risk it?
