Pregnancy is a naturally lovely time in a woman's life, and the skincare products we use should reflect that. However, this isn't always the case. Did you know that just because something says "gentle" or "all-natural" on the label doesn't guarantee it's non-toxic or safe to use during pregnancy?
Generally, with the exception of the Acne Advanced and Clear Skin collections, most people feel comfortable and continue using Eminence products throughout their pregnancy.
As with all personal care products, we recommend consulting your physician to determine which ingredients are going to be suitable for use during your pregnancy as each individual is unique. We would be happy to provide you with full ingredient lists for any of the products you might be interested in or are using.
But creating a skin care routine at any time may be difficult, but what about during pregnancy? This brings up a whole other set of issues. Your skin can alter in a variety of ways during pregnancy, and it might act very differently than it does when you are not pregnant.
Always check with your doctor before trying any new skin care products or professional treatments while you're pregnant.

Can I use Eminence while pregnant?
Yes, almost all Eminence Organics products are pregnancy and post-pregnancy, it is recommended however to avoid the acne and clear skin products as they contain benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid which are often suggested to avoid.
We recommend consulting your physician to determine which ingredients may be suitable for use during your pregnancy as each individual is unique.
Products for Dry, Red, Irritated Skin
For some expecting mothers, their skin fails to achieve the desired pregnancy glow and instead becomes dry and sensitive. Hormone fluctuations may cause the face to become dry, losing moisture and oil, which can cause the skin to feel itchy, red, and irritated.
Try using a mild, oil-based cleanser like the Eminence Organics Stone Crop Cleansing Oil to help counteract dryness and irritation during pregnancy.
A soothing face oil like the Eminence Organics Rosehip Triple C & E Firming Oil will also help to reduce red, irritated skin.
Products for Itchy Stretch Marks
When your baby starts to show, the skin surrounding your tummy stretches, resulting in stretch marks. While these tiger stripe-like scars do not appear in everyone, however fluctuating hormone levels seem to have a role. If you have a family history of stretch marks, you may be at a higher risk. This stretching of the skin may be extremely irritating, tight, and painful, in addition to how it looks.
Hydrating the skin is one of the most effective strategies to relieve stretch marks. Drink lots of water and use rich, moisturizing lotions on your stomach area to keep your skin in good health.
The Eminence Organics Apricot Body Oil is a best-selling product for easing the discomfort of stretched skin. This award-winning oil nourishes and moisturizes the skin with grapeseed, jojoba, apricot kernel extract, and seabuckthorn oils.
Mix a few drops of Apricot oil with Eminence Organics Coconut Firming Body Lotion for the ultimate hydration therapy. This soothing combination will not only reduce the appearance of stretch marks, but it will also moisturize and soothe the skin.
Products for Nausea & Poor Sleep
Expect a lasting sense of nausea, as well as changes in attitude and sleep habits, while you're expecting. Essential oils and herbs are a safe and natural way to deal with all of these problems and more. Some essential oils are safe to use in the second and third trimesters, as your baby is more developed. Lavender, chamomile, and ylang ylang are some of the oils that can help to quiet the mind, relax the body, and aid in sleep.
Please with your doctor before using aromatherapy at home while pregnant, as with all of our suggestions. Because pregnancy symptoms and sensitivities differ from person to person, it's critical to be safe at all times.
Aromatherapy may be easily and mildly incorporated into daily life by using these moderate smells into skin care.
The Eminence Organics Soothing Chamomile Tonique and the Eminence Lavender Age Corrective Night Concentrate are two excellent options. A spray of the Soothing Chamomile Tonique will help you relax and unwind. With relaxing components including lavender, chamomile, and aloe, this lotion relaxes the senses and nourishes the skin, making it suitable for pregnant and nursing moms.
The Eminence Organics Lavender Age Corrective Night Concentrate replenishes the look of skin with a lovely mild dose of hydration from calming lavender and shea butter.
Products for Hormonal Acne
Hormonal acne is aggravating to deal with since it changes throughout pregnancy, as well as after delivery and nursing. The "pregnancy hormones" HCG and progesterone increase the amount of oil glands in your face during pregnancy. While this gives you that lovely "pregnancy glow," the extra oil can clog your pores, causing hormonal outbreaks. Furthermore, oestrogen levels decline and testosterone levels rise after childbirth, which can result in numerous pimples as the body tries to balance itself.
One to two drops of the Eminence Organics Eight Greens Youth Serum on the face will help to absorb excess oil, improve the appearance of hormonal breakouts, and keep skin looking youthful and smooth.
The Eminence Organics Eight Greens Whip Moisturizer gently balances and soothes any red, dry skin.
Finally, the Eminence Organics Eight Greens Phyto Masque (Not Hot) is an excellent weekly therapy for both pregnant and nursing mothers. For dry, sensitive, and troubled skin types, a small coating of this gel mask all over the face is a delight. Without the spiciness of the Eminence Organics Eight Greens Phyto Masque - Hot, skin is left looking bright, clear, and radiant.
