With motherhood comes many responsibilities of caring and looking out for others, however, one should not forget to look out for themselves as well! Especially since there are certain hair and skin concerns that mothers worldwide experience.

Thinning hair, hair fall, dry skin and stretch marks are just a few of many personal concerns during pregnancy. As everyone’s body is unique, these concerns vary from one woman to the other, but these are all common pain points nonetheless that mothers all over the world have experienced — and definitely nothing to be ashamed of, but solutions are available as well!

Just like how we adopt different diets and exercise regimens during pregnancy, picking the right hair and skincare routine is also important in supporting healthier skin and hair! After all, your body is undergoing amazing changes and we have to adapt so we can continue to be our best natural selves!

If you know anyone who is an expecting mother, or are one yourself, here are some all-natural hair and skincare tips that are safe for both mother and baby!

Skincare: Focus on Hydration!
  • Besides making sure you stay hydrated, you’ll need skin products that are sensitive to your skin’s needs. Products with chemicals like retinoids, salicylic acid, and phthalates are to be avoided. Pregnancy-safe antioxidants include vitamin C, E, and A.
  • Our Extra-Virgin Sacha Inchi Facial Oil is full of Vitamin E, an important nutrient in rejuvenating your skin, especially if its dried or damaged by harsh chemicals.
  • Our Coconut Cider Vinegar Facial Toner will enrich your skin with its vitamin C and B to deeply cleanse, and then protect the pores on your face from dirt and germs that cause acne.
  • For stretchmarks, you’ll want to keep spots prone to marks well moisturized. Our bump-safe Turmeric, Coconut & Sesame Body Oil is free from essential oils & chemicals! And it will gently hydrate, soothe and calm your skin as your baby bump stretches & grows!
Hair Care: Don’t forget about your scalp!
  • Some women will experience their hair grow thicker and fuller during pregnancy. Others will feel them grow drier and thinner, and that’s totally normal too! Although your hormones are responsible, you can still definitely take steps to keep your hair looking happy and healthy.
  • You can rest easy with our Hair Mask & Scalp Treatment. This duo is handmade to detoxify, nourish, and strengthen your roots, scalp, and hair! Scientifically formulated for all skin and hair types. It’s also chemical-free, so that’s one less worry off your shoulder!
Don’t forget about yourself!
A healthy mind makes a healthy body. Take time for yourself every day. Our mental and emotional state has a huge impact on our skin and hair. Indulge in self-care that calms both body and mind — and they’re handcrafted with organic and sustainable herbs that are safe for both mom and child, so you can sleep peacefully at night.
Be kind to yourself and don’t forget about yourself. You deserve it!
