Pregnancy Safe Skin Care Routine

If you have been following my blog for a little while, you know that I love skin care. I don’t blog a lot about it because it’s always changing. One thing I’m consistent with is my love for natural products and simple ingredients. Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve found a great routine. It’s important for me to have a pregnancy safe skin care routine. So, with some research and advice from my dermatologist, I’ve nailed a a routine down that keeps me free of breakouts, keeps my skin hydrated, and does an excellent job of exfoliating. So, today, I bring you a video in which I go through my routine with you and explain why I love the products that I have been using. I hope some of my mama-to-be friends can find this information useful. Pregnancy safe skin care is important! Even if you aren’t pregnant, I have some pretty darn good recommendations that address anti-aging, hyperpigmentation, hydration, and breakouts. Win, win!

    I never even realized my regular skin care products might not be safe during pregnancy. My doctor gave me a list of medications that weren’t safe to take, and foods not safe to eat, but nothing about beauty products. Hmm..

    I’m super excited to watch this video (currently waiting for it to load). I am TTC after a miscarriage 6 weeks ago, and ever since I have been off of my birth control, my face is CRAZY oily and breaking out. I’ve been using the Cetaphil Dermacontrol oil-controlling moisturizer, but my face still looks like I covered it in oil. and I keep breaking out, but I obviously cannot use my prescription benzoyl peroxide. do you have any recommendations? It’s torturing me …

    Thanks for this post! I am 16 wks pregnant with my first and my skin has taken a beating. I was wondering if you have any recommendations for body break outs, I have never dealt with this before but can’t seem to get my shoulders to clear up and it has been so frustrating, especially now that it’s Summer.

      Oh my skin definitely broke out SO MUCH with my first daughter, it was unbearable. I recommend using something with a sulfur base to it. I love this stuff called Acnomel and it’s usually available with the pharmacist at the drugstore behind the counter. I don’t think you need a prescription for it. Your OBGYN / nurse may have some good suggestions, too!

    Another great option is Amalou Skin!

    When my business partner and I were pregnant, we had problems with breakouts and discoloration. Our doctors couldn’t suggest anything that they could assure us would be safe to use…so we worked with a team of experts to create our own line of maternity-conscious face care products.

    The Amalou Skin includes an exfoliating cleanser, moisturizer, toner and night treatment – all specifically formulated to help address pregnancy related skin issues. There are no “no-no” ingredients and we even left out any added fragrances that could irritate pregnant sensitivities.

    I encourage any mom experiencing breakouts and other skin issues to go to to read reviews by other moms who’ve used Amalou Skin. Amalou has helped SO many women in the 3 year since we developed the line and we feel so fulfilled to be able to help expecting moms glow without worry!
