We consulted Tiffany Parrish, founder of Selenite Beauty, a Charlotte wellness + beauty boutique, on tips and products for expecting and new moms! Here is what she had to say: "I think pregnancy is an eye opening time for a lot of us as far as what we are putting on our body and how that impacts that little one inside us. Here are a few of my favorite products that are safe for both expecting and new moms:
1-Favorite stretch mark oil is by far the Erbaviva stretch mark oil. I like to use it directly out of the shower. In the evening I love to use the mama relax oil before bed. It's extremely calming and soothing
2-Deodorant - Agent Natuer deodorant works so well and makes the transition easy ·
3-Retinol - Kypris's Moonlight Catalyst is a more gentle, herbal alternative to retinoid preparations for nighttime exfoliation
4-Calming crazy pregnancy skin - I love the Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil. It's safe for even the most sensitive skin, while still helping with everything from dry patches, flaky patches, blemishes, dull skin tone, fine lines, scars, and sun damage
5-SPF- Your skin is much more sensitive when pregnant, including to the sun! Don't forget SPF!
6-The other thing I recommend for any mom is some multi-use products. I keep a few things in my bag at all times: erbaviva lip and cheek balm (for you and your little), a multi stick (love ILIA and Vapour) so you can add a little color to your lips and cheeks when needed, and the RMS signature set which has a bronzer, luminizer and lip to cheek color. Easy peasy put together face in no time!” *all products featured can be found at@selenitebeauty* 😘
