Pregnancy may give your complexion a natural glow, but it can also wreck havoc on your body and skin. To keep yourself—and your growing baby bump!—pampered, you’ll need some special, Doctor-approved essentials. If you're a mom-to-be or know a close gal pal that’s expecting, check out the list of cult classic must-haves.
Prepping for the arrival of your newborn can be expensive! Luckily this beloved skin-soothing product is wallet-friendly, and it’s been a staple on pregnant bellies for decades. No need to splurge on high-priced stretch mark creams, Palmer’s blend of cocoa extract, coconut oil, and vitamin E in this lotion helps soothe itchy skin and will prevent future stretch marks from forming.
Your tummy isn't the only area to grow during pregnancy! Avoid the stretch marks and sagging that comes with doubling cup sizes by applying this serum to your bust daily. The skin firmer helps maintain the strength and structure of collagen found within your delicate decolleté.
Finding odd dry patches on your skin? You will love slathering on this ultra-hydrating body oil from head-to-toe. The light-weight formula contains all natural sweet almond and grapeseed oils which moisturize your skin without any greasy or sticky residue.
Happy feet! Swelling of the ankles and the added weight you are now hauling around can lead to sore legs and feet. Treat yourself to a mini massage at the end of the day by rubbing in this peppermint oil and rosemary extract enriched cream. The formula will instantly cool and soothe any foot aches.
Raging gestation hormones can result in blemishes and breakouts. Steer clear of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide (which many consider to be toxic for the baby) and instead opt for this safe acne-clearing alternative. The gentle cleanser contains lactic acid which exfoliates, lemon peel oil which brightens, and antioxidants such as green tea extract and cucumber—which fight free radicals in the dermis.
