It is just as important to take care of your skin during pregnancy as it is when you are not pregnant. It actually may be even more important now that you are pregnant. There are many different skin issues that can arise during pregnancy. But it is different for every person. You may get one skin issue, a lot more or none.
I personally have been dealing with dry/ itchy skin, minimal stretch marks… so far…hormonal acne (not too bad thank God!), some little spider veins, skin darkening and recently got the linea nigra which is a dark line down the middle of the lower belly.
Some Skin Issues you May Encounter With Pregnancy
- Dry Itchy Skin
- Stretch Marks
- Weird Rashes
- Hormonal Acne
- Spider Veins
- Varicose Veins
- Linea Nigra
- Increased Redness
- Skin Tags
- Skin Darkening
About This List
I have listed Skin Care Products that are safe and healthy for use during pregnancy and nursing. There are so many ingredients that we want to avoid which can be harmful to ourselves and our baby. These skin care products listed below, I’ve researched about through the EWG, (Environmental Working Group) to find the safest options.
For More information on determining what is safe or not check out my Essential Guide To Safe Personal Care Products During Pregnancy
I am currently using SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Bath, Body & Massage Oil from this list. I have included a little review about it below the product.

I have this product. I have been using it after I take a shower in the evening. I put it on my belly, breasts and anywhere I feel like I may be getting stretch marks or have the potential to get them. It smells so good. It is oil so keep that in mind. When I put my pj’s on after I apply, the clothes do stick to me a little bit. However the oil doesn’t feel sticky on my body. I feel like it has been doing a good job moisturizing and minimizing any stretchmarks.

So as far as deodorants go, I have not recently been using one. I tried the more “natural” deodorants and I had been getting rashes from them.
I looked up deodorants that are low on the EWG scale but when I looked at the reviews of the products it seems most of them, had people that were getting rashes as well.
I did fine one deodorant so far where there are no complaints of rashes and there are only a few natural ingredients in them. I will list it here.
Natural Deodorant with Magnesium (Not listed on the EWG site)
The only 4 ingredients in this deodorant are almond oil, beeswax, magnesium oxide & therapeutic grade essential oils. I haven’t been having luck with deodorant so I am going to try this out. It comes in a few different scents.
I hope that this list helps you find some skin care products you like which are also safe for your baby.
Have you already tried any products on this list? If so which ones and did you like it or not?
