Good morning ladies,
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
since being pregnant I have been thinking a ton about what to eat that my baby also gets the right ingredients and stays healthy in there cause everything I take to myself the baby also does. The same goes for beauty and skincare products. The skin is absorbing over 50 % of the ingredients you put onto it so your products better be pregnancy safe and non-toxic cause it gets in your cycle no matter what and it will maybe affect your baby.
I have been searching the web up and down and reading / comparing articles and ingredient descriptions as intense you could think I want to become a professional chemist. But now I know what I am safe to use and what not. Which substances are okay, great and forbidden.
Disclosure: I am in no way a doctor or have any medical knowledge. I did my own research for this blog post and read a lot on the internet, I also asked my practitioner if it was fine to take these products and she ended up giving me green light but I would suggest to ALWAYS talk to your doctor first. You can make a preselection by yourself but I would definitely get the products approved before using them on a daily base.
Biotherm Total Renew Balm // The BEST cleansing balm I have ever had. It totally melts off the make-up of your face. I haven´t found anything that cleaned better than this so far.
Nuxe Micellar Foam Cleanser // Awesome smelling face foam (you can totally smell the roses) that actually doesn´t dry out your skin while you are cleaning it.
Neutrogena Skin Detox Micellair Water // I have had the Hydro Boost toner before but they discontinued it so I went with this one. It fullfills the same purpose.
Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Toner // I really love this product and have been using it for years, even before I was on the hunt for clean products. This product has absolutely made my skin better and I use it after cleaning my face and before my face cream in the mornings and at night.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost (not picutred here) // Needed to switch eye creams cause the last I have used included Retinol which is an absolute no-go when you are pregnant.
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid // I have heard a lot about this company before I have even ordered anything. They are super affordable and almost to good to be true. I have a bunch of their serums but the only one I can use for now is the Hyaluronic Acid cause it is a product of your own body.
Kiehl´s Midnight Recovery Concentrate // I ordered this even before I was pregnant and thankfully I am still able to use it as all the ingredients are considered to be pregnancy friendly. The serum contains a bunch of essential oils which makes the smell so so good. It also leaves your skin super soft. I use the serums two times a week and so far they work great.
Rituals The Ritual of Namasté 24h Hydrating Gel Cream
Rituals The Ritual of Namasté Hydrating Overnight Creme // Rituals has been a go-to around her for many year and I always loved their products. They are a little pricey but they hold up so well and are made of awesome quality so I don´t mind about that. It was just recently that I discovered their skincare series and I loved it right away. The smell of roses is awesome and the face cream goes on really smooth and doesn´t feel greasy at all. I have the duo for day and night. All of their products are natural and Rituals even offers a mom and a baby line if you are interested.
Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Day Oil // I have read about this on Helena´s blog (The Brooklyn Blonde) before, she adds one drop of face oil to her foundation everyday. I have tried it and loved it. My foundation goes on very smooth now and it doesn´t look cakey at all throughout the day. Definitely worth a shot.
Kiehl´s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque // The best smelling face mask I have ever had, fruity but also relaxing in a good way. It includes little particles of cranberry seeds that have an exfoliating effect to your skin. The little can doesn´t include a lot but it is definitely worth a try as it is that good.
Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Clay Mask // Comes as a powder and you have to mix it all by yourself but this makes it even easier cause you can create the consistency and the amount you want to. All of Dr. Hauschkas´s products are natural and therefore perfect for pregnancy.
Pixi FortifEYE Firming Eye Patches // Love to use eye patches cause they instantly make you look fresher after using them. I am planning on storing them in the fridge and using them after every long night I have with our sweet baby girl.
These are all the products I have used and loved so far since I am pregnant. I haven´t tried out anything new after I found a product that I was able to use.
It is essential for every woman to follow such great skincare routine during pregnancy to protect the skin from various issues like acne, pigmentation etc.
It definitely is. Thank you so much xo katie
