In honor of my pregnant sister (I’m going to be aunt in January!), I’m doing another round of pregnancy safe and must needed beauty bag essentials for the expecting or breastfeeding lady. A lot of products are no-no’s when you have a bun in the oven, since topical treatments can seep into your blood stream. So if you’re pregnant and wondering what to use, or you just need gift ideas for your pregnant friend, here are some great products that are safe, and make those last few months just a little easier.
Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47
Sunscreen is a must for everyone, but is especially important for pregnancy since many people suffer from melasma (like me!). This natural, moisturizer/sunscreen combo eliminates an extra step in the morning and has a high SPF of 47. Even though we are heading into winter, don’t skip the SPF!
Tata Harper Aromatic Irritability Treatment
The name says it all. Being pregnant does give you the right to be more irritable and fussy, but why not try and combat it with some all natural aromatherapy? Toss in your bag and use when you’re having to wait in line at the doctor’s office, or your husband forgot that much needed fro-yo.
The Organic Pharmacy Bilberry Complex Cream
If swollen hands and feet have you feeling like a sausage, try massaging in this cream, which aids in circulation and helps fight tired feet and legs.
Beauty Counter Rose Water Uplifting Spray
By now you all know how much I like facial sprays. This completely safe mist gives skin a hydrating boost and is super handy for those midday hot flashes.
Belli Acne Control Spot Treatment
If you’re one of the lucky ones to experience radiant, glowing skin when they’re pregnant, well then good for you. But if you’re one of the gals that got hit by hormonal acne like I did, having a product that you can use to treat pesky pimples is a godsend. Most acne treatments are harsh and iffy for the pregnant folk, but this line of products is specifically designed for moms to be.
