Nine months to achieve this
There is a lot of conflicting information about pregnancies, their use, and how to avoid them. We did our research and consulted with Pai-Mums to find out what they recommend.
During the first trimester, it is recommended not to use essential oils. Our products contain such small amounts of essential oils that we do not consider this a risk. Our founder Sarah used all of our products throughout her pregnancy and was very happy with this decision. She now has two beautiful babies. Apart from that, it is important that you are familiar with it. So take your time to think about your decision. The following products contain no essential oils and are 100% safe for your first trimester:
Second and third trimester
At this point, you should have a complete routine. However, there are three products that we would recommend not using during your pregnancy : BioAffinity Tonic for rosemary and rice plants, Echium and Amaranth Age Confidence Oil and Copaiba and Zinc Blemish Serum. This is because they both contain a higher percentage of essential oils like rosemary, which could affect your baby's development.
We hear from many women who suffer from irregular breakouts and spots during their pregnancy, especially in the first trimester when the hormone level really increases. Extra estrogen increases sebum production, making blackheads, spots and breakouts more likely than usual. It is most likely that these hormone-related spots appear on the chin and jaw.
We recommend avoiding any foaming facial cleansing to keep your natural oil and pH balance in check. Switch to a detergent-free cream cleaner – our Camellia & Rose Cleanser could be a good choice.
The more you can balance the skin, the better. A light layer of moisturizer should be more than sufficient in the morning. In terms of food and nutrition, ensuring good intake of omegas 3, 6 and 9 also helps soothe the skin from the inside, but also reduces foods that are rich in refined sugar and low-quality animal fats. why.
If your skin has become more sensitive, or itching or hot flashes, you are not alone. As your bump grows, your skin expands and becomes thinner. Thin skin is less able to retain moisture, becomes dry, itchy and more prone to irritation.
Wearing light cotton fabrics definitely relieves itching. Avoid tights / leggings or vests made of synthetic fibers. Cotton maternity bras are also important because many women tend to get itchy – e.g. Round bra closures and straps that apply pressure to the skin.
Avoid foaming shower gels and avoid cleaning agents such as sodium lauryl sulfate and cocamidopropyl betaine, as these are irritating and also affect the natural oil / pH balance of your skin. Pay attention to ingredient lists.
Our founder Sarah swears by a good 80% + olive oil soap, which was applied with a soft loofah. Then apply a natural / organic body cream. Creams contain a high proportion of water and thus help to alleviate dehydration and dehydration of the skin. Our Comfrey & Calendula Calming Body Cream is particularly gentle and was specially developed for stressed or allergy-prone skin.
STRETCH MARK STRESS?
In order to repair and get the skin back into shape after pregnancy, it must be as supple and elastic as possible. That means lots and lots of creams and oils – that's why we put them together in our new stretch mark system . This blog should explain exactly how they work.
is absolutely safe even during the entire pregnancy because it is fragrance-free. Instead of vitamin A, which is best avoided, rosehip contains the beta-carotene form, which is completely safe during pregnancy and lactation and is indeed the recommended source of vitamin A. Its high concentrations of omegas 3,6,7 & 9 help deeply nourish the skin, improve its elasticity and suppleness. Rose hips have also been shown to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, fine lines and an uneven skin tone and are therefore ideal as a skin remedy.
