As you go through all the changes that come with growing up and then caring for a little human being, it’s important to make sure you’re still taking care of yourself. And while a long, luxurious skincare routine sounds beautiful in theory, it can be overwhelming or nearly impossible to pull off at this point in life. In addition to the time commitment such a regimen may require, there are also a number of limitations regarding ingredients that are safe for use during pregnancy and lactation. That’s why Chelsea Hirschhorn, CEO of beloved prenatal and postnatal brand Frida Mom, created a skincare line designed to quickly and effectively address your skincare needs during and after pregnancy. The best part? Each item costs less than $15.
“During pregnancy, it seems like we’re more than limited in what we can ‘safely’ use on our skin,” said Tiffany Libby, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City and mother of three. , to Well+Good. “However, we still have many options on the table to address our skin concerns and needs so that we can maintain our skincare routine and not let skin health fall by the wayside.”
This new line from Frida Mom comprises four skincare products, all of which use safe-to-use ingredients. Learn more about each item and purchase them below.
