Cooler temperatures can bring newfound skincare dilemmas— especially if you are expecting! Who better to dish on the best Fall beauty picks that are safe for momma and baby than our resident guru Kristen? Kristen just happens to be getting ready for the arrival of her second baby— a little girl, due any day—so read along for the products getting her through the final stretch and the rest of the season!From Kristen
I’ve been planning and preparing for my little girl’s impending arrival and I am so excited that the wait is almost over! Now that we are moving into Fall, I’ve naturally switched up my beauty routine and only use pregnancy-safe products that are free of harsh chemicals but still effective. Here are my favorites:Treatment: Mama Mio’s Pregnancy Boob Tube soothes, hydrates and even firms. I use it after the shower and will continue doing so after baby arrives. It’s worth noting that this cream is safe for moms to continue using if they plan to breastfeed.
Body Oil: Body oils are a great way to nourish and maintain moisture throughout pregnancy and beyond. I’m a fan of both the eucalyptus and lavender oils from Basq. I plan on packing both in my hospital bag to keep me calm and relaxed!
Lip Balm: I always have an Honest Lip Balm on hand, especially in the Fall when chapped lips can be problematic. Oh and I’m also obsessed with Honest’s Hand Sanitizing Spray since it’s just as hydrating and is perfect for on-the-go to keep germs at bay.
Body Scrub: Exfoliation is key when the weather cools PLUS your skin takes a toll during pregnancy. I recommend a body scrub like Basq’s Sugar Body Polish to slough away dry skin before moisturizing with an all over body lotion like Basq’s Mega Moisture Cream.
Nail Polish: I love all of the dark nail colors for fall. Butter London’s Nail Lacquer in Posh Bird is one of my favorites!
