3 Great Pregnancy Skin Products

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to a few companies who offer top-notch skin-care products for pregnancy. All of these products are safe and healthy for you and your baby (unlike many out there, unfortunately--check out our recent guide to personal care products to learn about chemicals in conventional lotions to avoid). They have also (knock on wood!) seemed to prevent me from getting any stretch marks with just one week left of pregnancy. Phew! I have dutifully used these products daily throughout my pregnancy, and my rapidly growing stomach has stayed soft and smooth as a result. (I also had a friend make me a DIY skin oil, for which I am very grateful!)

Very nice sharing. I spend much time to research harmful ingredients from Cosmetic Database for my makeup. If everyone can pay more attention to ingredients, people can become more healthier.
