Best of Pregnancy Winner for Best Pregnancy-Safe Sunscreen
Sun’s out, bump’s out. Ready to hit the beach? You know you should slather sunscreen on that adorable bikini-ready belly of yours. But you’ll also want to prioritize sun protection even if you’re simply out and about running errands with your bump adequately covered. Using a lotion with SPF should be a habit (whether you’re pregnant or not). Of course, if you are expecting, you may suddenly be more cognizant of the ingredients in the products you’re applying to your skin (aka your largest organ). For the record, lots of popular sunscreens have dubious ingredients you don’t necessarily want to be exposed to during pregnancy—or anytime, really.
Still, finding a sunscreen with clean ingredients that’s not too thick or pasty and that spreads pleasantly is a tall order. Fortunately, Earth Mama Organics Mineral Sunscreen ticks off all the boxes on our list. Free of harsh chemicals, parabens, fragrances and nanoparticles, it’s made with gengle, organic ingredients and zinc oxide to offer ultimate sun protection. What’s more, it features a hint of iron oxide to provide a sheer tint that blends with most skin tones, and soothing argan oil to reverse previous sun damage. Suffice it to say, this powerhouse pregnancy-safe sunscreen can do it all.
