Just because you’re pregnant and your body has to suffer from growing a human being (soon to be the size of a watermelon) doesn’t mean your skin has to! In fact, most pregnancies, your skin takes on a whole new world. From raging hormones that cause some serious break outs to soon to be glowing skin. At least that’s what everyone says!
Your skin takes a true beating which is why you still need some self love but with pre caution because there are some harsh ingredients in a lot of skincare that you may not have known or even thought about before. I sure didn’t and it took me a good minute to go through the list of my favorite products to see what was safe and what was not and it was pretty scary to see how many were not safe. I had to store those away for after baby and do some serious research (as I am no expert) to change up my skincare routine. Just a smidge to ensure the best for my little!
