the skincare edit
We’re not sure what exactly brought you here. It could be the onset of new pregnancy changes (bet you’re thinking, I’ve never broken out here before). It could be that you’re just now realizing that every single thing you ingest, inhale, or apply to your skin goes straight to babe’s tiny body as well (that’ll make all moms buckle down on their ingredient lists). Or you may just be thinking, “Hey, I’m pregnant. Guess it’s time to adjust to a pregnancy skincare routine.”
Whatever it is, welcome. We’re glad you’re here. Reading this is already taking an extra step toward being more mindful of your skincare needs when you’re pregnant. So if you find yourself googling “how do I make this feel better” or “where do I find pregnancy-safe skincare products” you’re in luck.
We're sharing the best of the best pregnancy-safe skincare from head, shoulders, knees, and toes (🎶 knees and toes 🎶) to nourish and protect your growing bump and body in the sun, at home, and anywhere else you find yourself on this journey. From non-chemical SPF (v important ) to "under-there-care", to body-lovin’ bedtime lotion, here are our skincare + wellness wonders to help you focus a little less on pregnancy stress and a little more on taking care of what you do have control over: yourself.
Bet when you used to think of skincare you only really thought of your multi-step face routine, right? Pregnancy skincare is a whole new ballgame. It’s time to expand your horizons and give the rest of your skin some major TLC. We’re sure you know that your skin has to make some serious adjustments to accommodate a growing baby living inside of you. That means itching, dryness, and sometimes stretch marks. Help your chest and belly cope with these fav moisturizers.

Other than taking care of dry, stretching skin, there are other ways you need to be treating yo’ self! Your whole body is undertaking a new challenge during this pregnancy. That means new smells, weird sleep patterns, and there may be a hemorrhoid or two. These will help.
While we’re at it, we would be remiss if we didn’t tell you that bathtime seriously changes once lil guy comes along. Go ahead and soak up the precious time you do get in the shower now with these three pregnancy solutions that not only feel good but are proven to help.
So, there you have it. The skinny on pregnancy skincare. If you’re ready to stock up all at once, go for it. You don’t want to be left high and dry on a day that you suddenly need the Acne Facial Bar or Rhoid Balm.
