Safe skincare products to use while pregnant.

If you’re looking for safe, nontoxic, clean skincare products that you can use without stressing out if they are good for you and your little one– you are in the right place.

The products that I’m going to talk about are not just safe products but they are all natural, organic, meant to nourish, protect, and prevent.

Being a mom myself (having a 2 year old daughter) and expecting my second one, I had  to research and try several different clean beauty skincare products in order to make sure that they are actually helping me during my pregnancies.

I believe I came a long way since my first time being pregnant. I’ve learned a lot about safe and clean ingredients.

I know how stressful and time consuming it is to make sure you buy healthy and efficient skincare products while pregnant. That’s why I want to help mamas or mamas to be by sharing all my best finds.

Here is what I recommend:

 

 

For shower/bath: Juice Beauty. The Organic Solution

Green Apple Body Cleanser

I’ve been loving to use this refreshing cleanser in the shower. It has a light organic formula that lets my skin feel and smell amazing (it contains organic apple and grape juice).

You can rest assured that this product is safe and good for your pregnancy. They are all formulated without harsh chemicals. No parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances.

I bought this one from their site, over here. You can buy this product by itself or take advantage of the whole set (just $30), as I did. The set contains: body cleanser, body moisturizer, plus a hand cream. All amazing!

If you want to read more about the ingredients list and the other benefits, you can find it all on their site. They ship their products fast and secure.

 

For breastfeeding: Erbaviva Organic Skincare

Nursing Balm

 

We all have heard the beautiful stories and the amazing connection that God created between mother and child when breastfeeding. Unfortunately, these are not the only stories that we hear. We also read those horror stories about breastfeeding: the pain and the discomfort that comes with it. I guess nothing really beautiful comes easy!

For some breastfeeding doesn’t hurt (lucky mamas) but for me, my first time was so painful that I knew I needed as much help as possible to eliminate/reduce all the pain and troubles.

I’ve learned that is better to prevent than to go all in into an area that is new and you cannot know how to handle. This Erbaviva Nursing balm made everything much easier for me.

You can start using it during the 3’rd trimester and then continue to use it while breastfeeding. It is safe for you and baby, formulated with organic cocoa butter, calming chamomile and calendula.

For baby: Erbaviva Organic Skincare

Baby Body Wash

 

I was not going to end this article without talking about this baby wash. Your baby will love it (you can use it too). It cares for and cleanses all sensitive and delicate skin.

The organic mandarin and calming chamomile  makes bath time a pleasure.

Mom deserves the best. The perfect gift for every mom. Mother’s Day.

You cannot go wrong when choosing to gift skincare!

And this is not any type of skincare, but products that are clean, nontoxic, and are meant to nurture and take care of your skin.

My favorite clean beauty retailer is Follain. Why? Because they are the best of clean beauty, thoughtfully curated! Because you can rest assured that everything you buy from them is CLEAN, HIGH-PERFORMING & HAND-PICKED.

They have the largest list of restricted ingredients because they don’t like to compromise health for beauty. And this is something I also truly stand firm for (that’s why I became a Follain ambassador).

All the products that I recommend below are products that I personally tried and currently use in my daily skincare routine.

COQ-10 Toner & Indie Lee Squalane Facial Oil

 

I have been raving about these products for quite a bit now because they really work. You actually get what they promise they’ll do. And there is nothing more satisfying than knowing you invested your money in something that truly works.
