Pregnancy & Makeup
YOU ABSORB 60% OF EVERYTHING YOU PUT ON YOUR SKIN, BE THOUGHTFUL
The long list of makeup ingredients to avoid while pregnant is overwhelming to say the least. Sometimes I feel like you need a text book just to protect yourself from harmful products. Aluminum chloride hexahydrate, Beta hydroxy acids, Chemical sunscreens, Diethanolamine (DEA), Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), Formaldehyde, Hydroquinone, Parabens, Phthalates, Retinol, Thioglycolic acid, Toluene. Overwhelmed yet? I spent over an hour at Sephora looking for makeup that was pregnancy safe.
I’m going to make it easy for you, Follain is a very easy place to shop for beauty products. Follain makes it easy because of their promise to offer toxic free makeup. Bare Minerals is a great natural looking brand that was my eighth grade go-to that has come full circle. RMS Beauty is another one of my favorites. I decided to go chemical free during my first pregnancy and I’m so happy I made the change. I haven’t looked back! Check out my makeup routine below.
