Everyone always talks about how much your skin will glow during pregnancy, but what if your skin doesn’t get that memo?

I was one of those unlucky women and I can tell you, there’s nothing fun about treating acne while you’re expecting because unfortunately, there are a lot of products you can’t use.

My baby boy arrived two years ago so I’m back to being as close to blemish free as possible — thank goodness!

But since I figured there had to be others suffering my same fate, I decided to reach out to an expert to see if there is a safe and effective way to keep those unwanted zits at bay when you’re with child.

Luckily, Dr. Jeannette Graf was more than willing to share her thoughts. Check them out below.

David Boreanaz Loves Designing Colors for Wife’s All-Natural Nail Polish Collection

07/09/2013 at 04:00 PM ET

David Boreanaz plays a cocky FBI agent on his hit show, Bones, but he’s a softie when it comes to his almost 3-year-old daughter Bella and her mini beauty routine. That’s why the actor was happy to support his wife Jaime‘s latest project: Chrome Girl, an all-natural nail polish collection.

Launched in Feb. 2013, Jaime and her partner Melissa Ravo came up with the idea while polishing their little girls’ nails and realizing all the harmful ingredients that may inadvertently end up in their mouths.

So the good pals decided to make a polish that is free of all the bad stuff (formaldehyde, DBP, toluene or camphor) and safe enough for kids, but that doesn’t compromise on rich color.

It’s a good thing David was willing to help out during the creative process. “I immediately fell in love with designing the colors,” he tells PEOPLE. “And as a parent, I was immediately drawn to the safety benefits.”

And it already has celeb fans — mom and actress Jennifer Hudson, who wore the Hard to Get shade to this year’s Oscars.

Ooh la la!

It looks like Lou Samuel is taking a page out of fellow budding fashionistas Coco Arquette and Suri Cruise‘s beauty playbook.

The 3-year-old is the latest Hollywood tot we’ve caught, red … lipped!

On Feb. 18, an all dolled up — check out her leopard coat and heart print leggings! — Lou showed off her megawatt smile while hanging at the beach with mom Heidi Klum and her older siblings in Venice, Calif.

And to polish off her look, she wore bright red lipstick and a head full of curls.

While we aren’t sure if Lou’s crimson pout was courtesy of a mini makeover or a sweet smooch from Klum — the model mama was sporting the same shade that day — we think it’s adorable.

Now that Kristen Bell is expecting her first child, the actress is a little more conscious of what she’s exposing herself (and her baby!) to.

“I have been hyperaware of everything I come in contact with since I’ve been pregnant,” The Lifeguard star, 32, tells PEOPLE. “I’m just very aware of what I am putting in my body because it is affecting someone else and that’s kind of my responsibility.”

And that includes also paying attention to the products she’s putting on her face, which has never looked better.

“I am working really hard at keeping everything I use very natural so the Neutrogena Naturals acne line could not have launched at a more perfect time for me,” says the mom-to-be, who is also the brand’s ambassador. “It has the most amazing fresh citrus smell, which is a blessing compared to some other acne products.”

Valentina Pinault sure knows how to motivate mom Salma Hayek.

The 5-year-old, who keeps the actress laughing after long days at work, can also take credit for inspiring the new line of nail polishes from her mother’s beauty brand, Nuance.

“Valentina is obsessed with the colors,” Hayek tells PEOPLE about her little helper.

But it wasn’t just the pint-size fashionista’s love of bold hues that Hayek considered when developing the collection, which launches online and in limited CVS stores starting Nov. 19 with 30 chic shades.

The concerned mom also made sure all the polishes, including base and top coats, were made with a kid-friendly formula that combines both natural ingredients and vitamins.

“It was very important for me to incorporate nail lacquer that isn’t very toxic,” Hayek explains.
