Congratulations, mama-to-be! And good for you, looking out for the health of your baby before it's even born. While the experience of pregnancy is different and personal for everyone, the one thing in common for all expecting ladies is that with pregnancy come a whole lot of changes — and among physical ones, you can expect changes in regard to your skin. If skincare is something you are mindful of, and are currently loving your carefully curated collection of beauty products, you might want to look over their ingredient lists to make sure they don't contain anything that could potentially harm your developing baby. Specific ingredients are advised to be avoided, but there are plenty of pregnancy-safe skincare products out there that can help you maintain (or get) the glow, battle dark spots or acne (infamously worsening in some women during pregnancy), nourish, heal and guard your skin — in a way that's safe for your baby.

Now, onto the good stuff! Look for moisturizers, serums, masks, and sun protection that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, shea butter, aloe vera, and natural botanicals and oils — all of which can help soothe and nourish your changing skin needs.

While pregnant, some may find that they are more prone to breakouts and congestion; for others, the issues could be dryness and hyper-pigmentation; we've included options for both, and more. Not forgetting about body oils specially formulated for your growing belly, of course. With some minor adjustments in your skincare routine to make sure it's pregnancy-safe, you'll still be able to continue to enjoy your skincare-meets-self-care ritual. The products that we've rounded up here are all safe — and a delight to use. Chill and glow, mama!
