2)It could worsen the problems, chemical peels can increase pigmentation in a pregnant woman's skin rather then decreasing it.
3)It can cause new problems like herpes.
4)It can cause redness in the skin, skin can burn easier.

What about the home care products?
It is recommended to avoid all the products containing AHA fruit acids: AHA Smoothing Cream, AHA Preparation Lotion, Exfoliating Enzyme Gel,
Retinol/ Retinoid is not suitable during pregnancy. Why?
Maternal use of synthetic Vitamin A (retinoids) during pregnancy can result in multiple effects on the developing embryo and fetus including miscarriage, premature delivery and a variety of birth defects.
