It's all about organic beauty during pregnancy
Organic pregnancy skin care is the way to go during your pregnancy! It is wise to avoid any chemicals on your skin that can be harmful for you and your baby. Mothers need to be mindful of the amount of chemicals in our everyday skin care products. This could be from moisturisers to our make up and even sunblock. Ranging from sulfates to alcohol, these substances can sometimes affect the development of your baby during pregnancy.
You want to make sure that your maternity skin care is safe for you and most importantly your baby. There is a lot to learn about the "dos and don'ts" duggring pregnancy. There are foods you can't eat, there are workouts you can't do and definitely chemicals that you put on your body is another area of concern.
As some skin care ingredients can cross into the bloodstream, many women are taking the natural skin care regiment during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
We have created a list of the the best maternity skin care products that are safe and yet perfect for your skin! Not to mention, all natural and organic.

3 Steps to achieving beautiful pregnancy skin
All you need is 5 minutes. Incorporating a skincare routine into your day is also giving yourself some mum-time to unwind and reset. We all know that being a mum is one of the hardest yet most rewarding jobs in the world, whether you are a corporate mum, housewife, part-time mum, we all live rather busy lives and we tend to put our loved ones first before ourselves...(yes, we are superwomen!)
Now it's time to give your pregnancy skin a little TLC and we swear by these 2 beauty steps to achieve a more radiant and healthy skin.
Step 1: Cleanse with a konjac sponge
Gently scrub your face with this organic konjac sponge with your favourite organic facial cleanser. If you're new to the whole organic beauty routines, here is one to get you started. This gets rid of all the dead skin cells leaving the skin looking refreshed. It's super easy to clean, just pop into boiling water, wait for it to cool and squeeze access water out of it. It's best to replace the sponge every 2 - 3 months. You will immediately feel the difference in your skin.Step 2: Soothe with an organic facial mask
After cleansing, soothe with the Orgaid Greek Yogurt Nourishing facial mask for extra hydration, allowing your skin to soak into all that organic goodness. It's the ultimate nutrition for all skin types and it's chemical free and certified organic ingredients. It also contains Pro Vitamin B5 that helps tighten the skin and prevents wrinkles.
Step 3: Seal and hydrate
This is by far the most important step after your organic beauty routine. Your pores are open and cleanse after the scrub and facial masks, so now it's time to seal in all the goodness with an organic moisturiser. We absolutely love the Antipodes hydrating water gel for an intensive hydration. It's recommended to apply a thin layer for day and night and this should be the last step for your skin to absorb all the nutrients.
Above are some of our best organic beauty products for mums going through pregnancy as it's not only easy but chemical-free and safe. Don't forget to take time out and pamper yourself once in a while. Keeping up with beautiful pregnancy skin isn't a chore, but a rejuvenation process to keep you feeling gorgeous inside and out!
