Oh, pregnancy! As if your changing body, hormones, and watching the food you eat isn’t enough, you also need to be mindful of what you are using on your body. At least I am. In no way am I saying that all pregnant women need to throw their expensive cosmetics in the trash and completely stop using their anti-aging creams. But, if you do some research you will see that a lot of products have chemicals in them that are not good for you or your baby.
With my first pregnancy I made the switch to using more natural products because I didn’t want to take any chances and it was a choice I decided to make. I also realized that a little crows feet wasn’t a huge deal if it meant me feeling better about putting less chemicals on my body. Even after I had my first son I continued using a lot of these products because I like them so much.
I decided to share what I’m using with you because it’s not always easy finding more natural or organic products to use. I’ve also had some trial and error with other products that I’ve used and these are my favorites so far. By the way, I am still searching for a good natural deodorant if anyone has any recommendations? I’ve tried Tom’s of Maine, Crystal, and Arm and Hammer Essentials. All have started off ok but once a hot day comes or a stressful situation they have all failed, miserably. So for the sake of everyone else around me, I’ve decided that the natural scent of a deli shop isn’t cool. Not cool at all.
