From your growing belly to your overall feeling of tiredness and food aversion to mood swings, pregnancy brings about a lot of changes in a woman’s life. Your skin, in particular, sees a lot of changes that varies from one pregnant mom to another. For instance, while some moms enjoy that sought-after pregnancy glow, others experience dry patches, dark spots, dullness, stretch marks or itchy skin.

If you’re part of the latter group of pregnant women, no need to worry about it because of the many skincare products that target all these and more. But in this article, we’re going to zero in on one of the most common pregnancy skincare issues—dry and dull skin.

Mama’s Choice Daily Face Moisturizer is a pregnancy-safe face moisturizer

Why it’s great:

While there are plenty of options for a pregnancy-safe moisturizer in the market, most of them are filled with whitening agents that are harmful to the skin. Mama’s Choice Daily Protection Face Moisturizer is the first face moisturizer designed for pregnant and breastfeeding moms. Free from alcohol and fragrance, it’s absolutely safe to use by moms. 

This lightweight moisturizer doesn’t leave a greasy residue on your face as it provides instant hydration while battling dryness and dullness.

And if you enjoy some time in the sun, you’ll be pleased to know that Mama’s Choice Daily Protection Face Moisturizer also offers a sun protection factor of 25 in the form of mineral sunscreen. This provides a physical barrier to shield your skin from UV rays unlike chemical sunscreens which usually contain ingredients like oxybenzone that isn’t just harmful to the skin but to one’s overall health, too! All these and more make it an ideal addition to any pregnant or breastfeeding mom’s skincare regimen.
