As you go through all of the changes that come with growing and then caring for a tiny human, it's important to make sure you're still taking care of you. And while a long and luxurious skin-care routine sounds lovely in theory, it may be overwhelming or nearly impossible to achieve at this time in life. In addition to the time commitment such a regimen may require, there are also a number of limitations regarding ingredients that are safe for use during pregnancy and while nursing. That's why Chelsea Hirschhorn, CEO of beloved pre- and postnatal brand Frida Mom created a skin-care line designed to quickly and effectively address your skin-care needs both during and after your pregnancy. The best part? Every item is under $15.
"During pregnancy, it feels like we are beyond limited as to what we can use 'safely' on our skin," Tiffany Libby, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City and mom of three, previously told Well+Good. "However, we still have many options on the table to address our skin's concerns and needs so that we can keep up with our skin-care routine and not let skin health fall to the wayside."
This new line from Frida Mom comprises four skin-care products, all of which use such safe-to-use ingredients. Learn more about each item and shop them below.

Cut down the time you spend on your routine by moisturizing your body in the shower. Made with pregnancy-safe emollients like shea butter and grapeseed oil, this lotion will moisturize while strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. It has a balm-to-milk consistency that is water-activated, making it perfect to use before you towel dry.
This balm is rich in vitamin E, an ingredient that works to build up collagen before it’s lost, which can help your skin retain elasticity, which allows it to stretch and recover with ease. Use it on the belly to prevent stretch marks and the perineum to help prevent tearing during birth.
As your body grows and swells, you may chafe more than you’re used to. To prevent that painful friction, you can use this stick. It uses tapioca starch, grapeseed oil, vitamin E, and sunflower seed oil to keep your skin hydrated and allow it to glide without the burn. It’s also in a stick form so you can use it on-the-go with ease.
Relieve the discomfort from swollen feet and achy muscles with this cooling spray. It uses menthol to provide that soothing refresh, along with vitamin E and squalene to keep skin hydrated. It’s also designed with a 360-degree sprayer, so it can reach your toes even when you can’t.
