Using Safe Products During Pregnancy {My Recommendations}

Most of you know how important it is to use safe products when you're pregnant. During my first pregnancy, I knew I needed to toss out some of my face products that contained salicylic acid in them (among other harmful things) and I thought I did a pretty good job finding safe alternatives, but I didn't really spend the time finding products that I truly loved and would want to use post-pregnancy. 

This time around, I really did my research! I've found 3 brands that I'm truly obsessed with. I will buy these products over, and over, and over again when they run out because I love them that much.

Let's start with what I use on my face: Amalou Skin. Amalou Skin is the first and only full line of pregnancy safe skin care products that help keep complexion issues from masking your glow. Pregnancy can cause many women to experience dramatic changes to their skin’s complexion, like sudden breakouts and melasma. I had melasma when I was pregnant with Camden (not cute!) so my favorite thing about this line is that it has melasma-fighting ingredients in the products.

My other favorite thing about this line is that the 4-step regimen makes me feel like I just went to the spa after every use. Seriously...these aren't your typical everyday products. They feel so luxurious and gentle on my skin. The 4-step system includes: REVEAL Exfoliating Face Wash - with tea tree oil, chamomile and azelaic acid, PRIME Detoxifying Tonic (makes my face feel so fresh) - Alcohol-free with natural antiseptics, antioxidants and azelaic acid, GLOW Balancing Moisturizer - with peptides, tea tree oil and azelaic acid, RESTORE Night Treatment - with azelaic acid and hydrogen peroxide. If you're looking to try just one product first, I would recommend the face wash or the glow moisturizer. A little goes a long way with these products...I've used them for over 3 months and still have a good amount left! I've had zero breakouts since using and in the morning my skin always looks so refreshed.

I came across Mustela's prenatal line because I use their products on Camden. They are actually one of the brands that I use on him, so I figured I would love the products for myself! I use their Stretch Marks Prevention Cream on my stomach, hips, and top of my thighs. I've tried many different stretch marks creams, body butters, oils and this one is hands down my favorite! The Soothing Moisturizing Balm is perfect for on my legs and arms. Both of these are thick and moisturizing, but non greasy!

Lastly, when I'm in the shower I use Acure's body wash (can be found at Target.) It smells heavenly and my skin always feels super soft. My only complaint about this is that it doesn't lather as much as your typical body wash, but since I know it's safe for me and baby I tend to look past it since that's the only thing I don't like about it. I like their shampoo, too.

I hope this helps for you (or someone you know!) when it comes to taking care of your skin during pregnancy! And if you have any favorites to share with me, I would love to hear about them!!
