Vitamin E Oil ($10)

Broadway star Brittany Johnson told NewBeauty that she made a lot of changes to her skin-care routine during pregnancy, but one of her biggest discoveries was vitamin E oil. “I used to only moisturize my entire body at night after a shower,” she began. “NOW, I do a layer of vitamin E oil and lotion on my chest, baby bump, and thighs every morning. At night, I do it again, in addition to my regular allover moisturizer post shower. It probably adds another eight minutes or so to my daily routine, but it’s made all the difference and I haven’t had any trouble with stretch marks!” Though Johnson didn’t specify which vitamin E oil she uses, there are tons of affordable options online, like this $10 find from Cliganic.

Nécessaire The Deodorant Gel ($18)

Huntington-Whiteley also told us that this innovative deodorant was another game changer for her during pregnancy. “I love the Nécessaire Deodorant because it really works,” she says, “It’s like a cream that comes out when you turn it and it doesn’t mark on your clothes, which is something I battle with a lot, especially being pregnant because everything is so tight and a struggle to get on anyway. I switched to ‘natural deodorant’ as I learned more about ingredients, but it took time to find one that actually worked.”
