Reading labels left and right to make sure products are safe? Check out some of our favorite pregnancy-approved skincare goodies.

You’re reading labels left and right to make sure your products are safe to use on your pregnant body. Check out these face and body goodies: they're approved for pregnancy and beyond.


Best for Your Hair: Nine Natural

This Citrus + Mint Nourishing Pregnancy Shampoo from Nine Natural is sulfate-free, Paraben-free, Phthalate-free, BPA-free, Triclosan-free, DEA-free, Petrochemical-free and, if that wasn’t enough, it’s also made without artificial dyes and chemicals. So your locks will feel (and look!) silky and luxurious. $20. NineNaturals.com


Best for Morning Sickness: Earth Mama Tea

Looking and feeling your best doesn’t always have to start with products. We love Earth Mama Angel Baby’s Organic Morning Wellness Tea because the ginger and mint help settle your stomach. It’s naturally caffeine-free too, so you can pour a cup whenever the queasiness starts! $6. EarthMamaAngelBaby.com



Best for Your Nails: Butter London

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding nail polish during pregnancy: Can you use it? Which ones are safe? Unfortunately, many of the polishes in your cabinet aren’t pregnancy-friendly—but Butter London totally is. Their Patent Shine 10X line is a colorful, non-toxic alternative and the first nail polish to be made with a "7-free" formula (devoid of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene and ethyl tosylamide) that won’t hurt you—or baby. From $15. Butterlondon.com



Best All-In-One Routine: Amalou

We love the Amalou Regimen because it comes with everything you’ll need to cleanse, restore, hydrate and protect your face—which means you don’t have to shop around to get what you need. It’s dermatologist-tested and fragrance-free. And you can kiss those pregnancy breakouts goodbye! The night treatment protects your face from acne when you’re sleeping. $138 for the line. AmalouSkin.com



Best for Rehydrating: aden + anais

Your body is focused on giving baby everything he needs to grow, but your skin isn’t doing so well with the change (sorry!). Aden + Anais Ultra Gentle lotion will nourish and rejuvenate your itchy, stretchy and dehydrated skin. Even better? It’s safe to use on baby and your postpartum body. $16. AdenandAnais.com


Best for Preventing Stretch Marks: Mambino Organics

With the Mambino Organics Anti-Stretch & Rebound Skin Duo, you don’t have to freak out over stretch marks. Both products are safe for your belly and baby—and they work together to restore your skin’s natural elasticity and keep it hydrated, to help prevent stretch marks from happening. $39. MambinoOrganics.com


Best for Tired Eyes: Bare Escentuals

Nighttime is baby’s most active time, which means you likely haven’t slept well in weeks. Worried people will notice? Instead of staying cooped up inside, try the Well-Rested SPF 20 Eye Brightener. Like magic (no, really!), it covers up the bags under your eyes so you’ll look refreshed and ready to go (even if you did only sleep three hours). $20. BareEscentuals.com



Best for Your Body: Belli Wash

Pure and Pampered Body Wash from Belli Skin Care is specially designed to protect baby from birth defects caused by harsh chemicals typically found in other bath products. It’s free of parabens, dyes and phthalates and safe to use on every skin type. It’s also made with ingredients you’ve seen at the grocery store (green tea, chamomile, lavender and cucumber), so you know it’s safe to use—and smells delicious! $13. Belliskincare.com



Best for Dealing With Stretch Marks: Spoiled Mama

As baby’s growing, so is your belly, which means your skin is taking a beating and you’re not thrilled. If you’re noticing some stretch marks, try The Spoiled Mama’s Bump Gloss Stretch Mark Oil, rich with antioxidants and fast-acting collagen-building components. It will soothe your stretching skin and help prevent scarring. From $36. TheSpoiledMama.com



Best When You’re in the Sun: Neutrogena

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen is the number dermatologist-recommended sun protector. It’s safe for your face, body and belly, made without oils or PABA. So next time you’re in the sun, you can actually relax! $10. Neutrogena.com
