SHARE THE LOVE (& THE STYLE)
Tori Praver-Fuller, swimwear designer extraordinaire, model, mom to three-year-old daughter Ryan and a recent Mom Crush, is due to give birth to her first son any day now. On her Instagram she writes, “To my little boy- I have loved every minute of you growing in my belly, but I am so ready to be your mama and hold you in my arms!” Let’s take a moment for our hearts to melt…
OK, we’re back. We wanted to know how she has managed to look so fresh, beautiful and glowing (good genes aside!) throughout her pregnancy. Lucky for us, she spilled her feel-good, look-great secrets. These pregnancy skin care products and vitamins are safe to use throughout all trimesters and best of all, most are equally beneficial post-bump.
Eminence Organics Products
Since its inception in 1958, the brand has been using sustainable farming and green practices to create natural, organic and biodynamic products. Free of parabens, animal by-products, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, harmful colorants and fragrances, mineral oils, petroleum, and other harsh cosmetic chemicals, they plant a tree for event product sold!
The Honest Co. DHA Complete & Prenatal Vitamins
Their prenatal vitamin is formulated with highly bio-available forms of nutrients, micronutrients, digestive enzymes and organic superfoods to help meet the growing needs of both mom and baby. While their DHA is made with premium Norwegian fish oils… and no fishy aftertaste. Trust me, that’s important when you’re preggo!
Earth Mama & Angel Baby Organics
The mama in this case Melinda Olson, a nurse, herbalist and real mother who believes moms, babies and families have a right to safe, herbal, zero-toxin products. Tapping into the healing power of nature, these products provide healthy, herbal alternatives for pregnant, postpartum and breastfeeding women, as well as babies of all ages.
Mother’s Special Blend Oil
This skin toning oil is formulated to help prevent stretch marks naturally by nourishing and conditioning your skin while it expands and contracts and can be used before, during and after pregnancy. Since all products absorbed by the skin can reach your baby, we love that it’s free of pesticides and harsh chemicals.
RMS Raw Coconut Cream
What can’t this cream do?? Let’s consider it ultimate organic beauty product! This multi-tasker can be used as a facial cleanser, skin moisturizer, lash nourisher and one of the best makeup removers ever. Ideal for all skin types including sensitive and acne-prone skin, the only problem you’ll have with it is keeping it in stock in your medicine cabinet.
Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil
In our recent Fit (Mom) Mode series, coconut oil was mentioned as a go-to for nearly all the health-conscious mamas we interviewed. From hair treatment to smoothie ingredient to mega-moisturizer, pure coconut oil is considered the healthiest oil on earth for its high levels of lauric acid, which is what gives its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties.
