Let’s Be Clear
Let’s be clear: Healthy skin begins with clean skin. So the first step in your Pretty Mommies regimen is to thoroughly cleanse and gently exfoliate with our all natural facial cleanser. It washes away impurities without drying out your skin, leaving it soft and hydrated.
Let’s Be Clear safely addresses common skin conditions specific to pregnant and nursing women – like hormonal acne breakouts – but it also contains many other healthy skin care benefits.
Let your real beauty clearly shine through. Let’s Be Clear will give you smooth, blemish-free skin that glows with an improved overall clarity, texture and tone.
Let’s Be Clear can be used on its own. But for the most effective results, use as the first step in the Pretty Mommies three-step system for safe, effective skin care for pregnant and nursing women.

Glycerin has antimicrobial effects, helps to heal wounds and also helps to restore skins elasticity. Glycerin based cleansers are highly recommended during pregnancy.
2% Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid which is derived naturally from fruits and milk and is extremely effective for helping with photo-aging and sun damaged skin. It is an excellent exfoliant, stimulates collagen production and because of its antibacterial properties it is widely used for improving acne prone skin. It has long been approved for the use during pregnancy.
Rosa Rubiginosa (Rose Hip) Oil is high in vitamin C as well as other components that help with skin regeneration and elasticity. There has been studies conducted where daily applications of rose hip oil were linked with wrinkle reduction and the fading of sun damaged skin. It has also been known to lighten hyperpigmentation spots. Rose Hip has for a long time been used in pregnancy products.

Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Extract is great at promoting anti-aging.

Many world renowned dermatologists recommend the use of topical green tea during pregnancy.
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil) Seed Oil has many skin care benefits. It is helpful at healing sores and wounds. It inhibits bacterial and fungal microbes. It is often used in the treatment of acne due to the fact it blends with the natural sebum of the skin, which curbs overproduction of oil. It actually “tricks” the skin into producing less sebum which can clog pores. It penetrates the skin rapidly and reduces water loss. It can be effective at lightening marks or scars and restoring the skin’s natural pH balance. It is used widely in many pregnancy products today and is not linked to any known health risks.

Cucumbers not only help to revitalize the skin but are also safe and great to eat while pregnant and nursing.
