I'm an American expat, writer,Youtuber, photographer. and old-fashioned romantic in love with celebrating the simple joys of daily life. I appreciate timelessness, the natural world, and a slow life lived with simplicity and intention. When I'm not photographing families or  slowly traveling the world and writing about it in a little notebook, I'm happily grounding myself in nature and cozying up with my sweet husband.

HELENAW

As a newborn and family photographer, I meet a LOT of moms! And as I love to serve families and mothers, I thought I’d share my favorite all natural non-toxic skincare products for pregnant moms. While I, personally, am not pregnant, I use Primally Pure’s oil cleanser, fancy face serum, and beauty cream. I’ve been using this skincare regime for the last 5 months, and ohmygoodness, my skin literally glows. And it feels so smooth and smells so earthy and natural every night that I use it, especially knowing I am not adding any unnecessary toxins into my body. Our bodies are our physical hosts. Just as we are what we eat, we are also what we put onto on skin – our skin literally ABSORBS it all. 

Natural Non-Toxic Skincare for Expecting Moms

Primally Pure

I, myself, have never personally tried the below pregnancy products, aside from the three skin products I use every evening before bed (at the end of this post). If you have any specific questions on the products, be sure to check out Primally Pure. I would also like to add that this post is NOT at all sponsored; I’m just sharing what I already love and use and hope it may be of benefit to you! If you are curious about these natural products that I use, you can use this 10 percent off discount code! 

Alright…so FIRST thing’s first…

Is [insert Primally Pure product here] safe to use while pregnant?

Here is what Primally Pure has to say:

“While there are certainly concerns surrounding the exaggerated use of certain essential oils during pregnancy and breastfeeding, we believe the essential oils used in our products and the dilution rates at which these essential oils are combined with their corresponding carrier oils make all of our products safe choices to use on your skin throughout pregnancy (with the exception of our Fancy Face Serum for which we offer a pregnancy safe version). But if you’re unsure or iffy about an ingredient for any reason, it’s always a good idea to consult with your health practitioner before use.”

Here are some of my favorite pregnancy skincare products from the Primally Pure Founder!

Favorite Non Toxic Pregnancy Skincare Products

BABY BALM

The Primally Pure founder swears by this product during pregnancy: the Baby Balm.

  • Effective at preventing stretch marks on growing bellies (she notes that eating plenty of healthy fats and drinking bone broth or taking collagen peptides also plays a huge role in this).
  • Baby Balm contains Emu Oil and Marshmallow Root which deeply moisturize and lubricate the skin.
  • Makes an amazing, deeply nourishing eye cream!

SEA SOAK

 Sea Soak

  • Contains precious salts, seaweeds and clays to relax sore muscles and provide the skin and body with vital minerals.
  • Perfect way to unwind and squeeze a bit of self-care into your day

BEAUTY CREAMS + BODY BUTTERS

Pregnancy will increase dry skin – on your legs, hands, face…everywhere. These Primally Pure Beauty Creams and Body Butters will help:

  • nourishing the skin
  • preventing + correcting dryness.

I personally use the beauty cream on my face every night and my skin feels so soft and supple every morning – and I tend to have unusually dry skin!

DRY SHAMPOO

Lastly, our Dry Shampoo can be super helpful to all your pregnant mommas out there….and even you entrepreneurs and business owners that never seem to have enough hours in the day! Pregnancy may make you need more sleep than normal right now, and let’s be real: showers are often the first thing to get cut. Dry shampoo fixes that! And it’s all natural. 

My Personal, All Natural Facial Routine

To find out exactly what I personally use and love for my daily skin routine, I wrote an entire blog post on those products here, including my natural oil cleanser to combat the acne, and serum and cream to combat my premature wrinkles.

I just love this company and their products so much. They really promote health and vitality instead of taking away from it, and their values of simplicity and integrity are values I can really get behind.
