As most of y’all know, I’m preggers, so finding a new skincare/beauty routine has been quite a task! I have found many great resources I’ll be sharing today, along with taking a deep dive into safe ingredients for moms-to-be. I have not only researched face skincare but makeup, haircare, lotions, deodorants and more. Look out for a pregnancy safe makeup post as well as a roundup of everything I use on my skin during pregnancy. I’m still testing a few products, so stay tuned!
Please note I am not a skincare expert and/or a doctor. I’m just a regular gal that cares about what goes in and on my body. These are my recommendations after doing my research, and trying pregnancy safe products for at least a month.
If you’re interested in a video tutorial of my pregnancy safe morning skincare routine, scroll down to watch it! I’ve also posted it over on my IGTV Instagram channel.
I’m happy to say, a lot of the products I use in my morning routine prior to becoming pregnant are safe! I did have to switch up a few of my steps and one being my ALL TIME favorite Lune and Aster CC Cream – boo hoo! 🙁 It is tragic, but I think I’ll survive for now… 😉 The reason it is NOT safe during pregnancy is, it uses chemical sunscreen. I’ve tested out at least 10 tinted moisturizes/cc/bb creams, with non-chemical SPF in the past 4 months, and I have found 3 I like…
Top three tinted moisturizers w/ SPF from least coverage to most:
15 Minute Beauty – I love this blog started by a doctor, mommy and beauty addict. She reviews numerous products and explains if they are pregnancy safe or not. I found it very informative and a great starting point before trying many products.
Byrdie.com – I found an article about 14 ingredients to avoid during pregnancy on this site. I came across similar lists online, but I thought this was the most straight forward and easy for me to understand.
Ingredients to Avoid
As I mentioned above, I found numerous DO NOT use ingredients lists while pregnant. Here is a quick rundown of the ones to avoid. Again, I’m not a doctor, but these are the ingredients I researched and steered clear of…
 Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Eye Patches – I am SO happy to say my favorite eye patches of all time are pregnancy safe. I love to pop these on 3-4 times a week, in the morning, if I’m looking tired AF. They help with hydration and de-puffing the under eye area.
 Dermalogica Special Cleaning Gel – I use this cleanser morning and night. It doesn’t dry out your skin, which is very important to me since I live in a desert-mountain climate.
 SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF – This serum is a blend of phloretin, pure vitamin C and Ferulic acid that helps improve the appearance of discoloration, fine lines and uneven skin tone. Sign me up!! Since I can’t laser my face and/or use retinol why pregnant to help lighten my brown spots, Phloretin CF is a great alternative. I LOVE this product and so happy I can use it when baby is on board.
 PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum – One word, hydration! As I mentioned I live in a v dry climate, so packing on the products that give my skin moisture is key. There are many acids to avoid during pregnancy, but thankfully, hyaluronic is not one of them. I typically use this PCA serum morning and night.
 M-61 Hydraboost Eye Concentrate – Let’s not forget about our sensitive under eye area. It needs a little hydration love too. This is a newer product I started using 3 months ago and I’m hooked! It firms, smooth and hydrated your eyes, helping with fine lines. The M-61 concentrate is great under makeup; not peeling off – v important!!
 Bareminerals Complexion Rescue – I mentioned my daunting task of finding a tinted moisturizer that would hold up to my Lune & Aster CC Cream, and this gem was the closest I could find. It’s dewy, has SPF 30, evens out skin tone with medium coverage and is pregnancy safe!! After trying about 10 options, Bareminerals Complexion Rescue, was a major standout!
 Tarte Quench Lip Rescue Balm – This product is a new beauty favorite of mine. It goes with me everywhere! The balm is the perfect mix of lip hydration, a slight hint of color and a beautiful shine. There are 8 total color options and I have the “nude”. Watch my video tutorial to see what it looks like!
