Week 1 finding out I was pregnant feels like an eternity ago but I do remember the first things that came to mind to research, one of them being skincare. I immediately made changes to my beauty routine and since have spent a lot of time researching, asking around, and fine-tuning a new daily am / pm ritual. It goes without saying (but I will!) — that I have gotten the OK from my doctor on product ingredients, so please be sure to consult your doctor as well while cultivating your go-to products.

Here’s what I’ve been reaching for mornings and evenings… some old and some new to me products that have become favorites…

*One thing to note, I have a few different options in some of the categories below that I will alternate depending on my skin’s status that week!


Rinse: Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser — I’ve mentioned this face wash in a past post, and forgot how much I love it! It had been awhile since I restocked but when I found out I was pregnant, it was the first thing I ordered to treat myself. It’s the best!

Serum: Skinceuticals CE Ferulic or La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence in Lotion.

Sunscreen: I have a few options here, too! I love EltaMD, Cocokind, Sun Bum Mineral SPF (and this chapstick!)


Tata Harper (again) to rinse.

Eye Cream: Caudalie Resveratrol Lifting Eye Cream or La Prairie Skin Caviar Eye Cream.

Serum: I like to rotate between Dr. Barbara Sturm HA Serum, Joanna Vargas Vitamin C Rescue Serum, Kypris Moonlight Catalyst, or Caudalie Resveratrol Serum.

Lotion: Tata Harper Créme Riche, Caudalie Resveratrol Cashmere Lotion, Cocokind Matcha Face lotion, or Biologique Recherch Crème Hydravit’s

Oil: Drunk Elephant Luxury Marula Oil


Masque Viviant

Tata Harper Floral Mask

Susanne Kaufmann Glow Mask

Evelom Rescue Mask


Hatch Belly Oil

Aesop Body Balm (smells like heaven)
