3 Great Pregnancy Skin Care Products

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to a few companies who offer top-notch skin-care products for pregnancy. All of these products are safe and healthy for you and your baby (unlike many out there, unfortunately — check out Natural Home and Garden's recent guide to personal care products to learn about chemicals in conventional lotions to avoid). They have also (knock on wood!) seemed to prevent me from getting any stretch marks with just one week left of pregnancy. Phew! I have dutifully used these products daily throughout my pregnancy, and my rapidly growing stomach has stayed soft and smooth as a result. (I also had a friend make me a DIY skin oil, for which I am very grateful!) 

It doesn't get much purer than NOW Foods 100 percent pure moisturizing almond oil. You can find NOW products at your local  health food store or online

Brigit True Organics Mom's Belly Balm is made up of olive oil, shea butter and a blend of herbs designed to prevent stretch marks. It's easy to apply like a deodorant; your body heat warms it up and it spreads easily. It's available online from the Brigit store
 
Finally, Wild Carrot Herbals Stretch Salve and Growing Belly Balm is a luxurious blend of cocoa butter and herbs that contains vitamin E and beeswax. You can buy it online here
