The same hormones that create that coveted “pregnancy glow” can actually backfire for some of us (myself included). Instead of a fresh, clear face, we wind up with blemishes, cystic acne and/or melasma. Worst of all, the usual skincare treatments are often considered iffy, if not completely unsafe, to use for these skin problems when you’re expecting. Developed by mothers with the guidance of dermatologists, OBGYNs and industry experts, Amalou Skin is one of the first and only “maternity-conscious” skincare lines. Without salicylic acid, retinoids, hydroquonine, benzoyl peroxide and other typical no-no chemicals and ingredients, the Amalou Skin line gently exfoliates, detoxifies, moisturizes and treats your skin safely before, during and after pregnancy.
