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.

While painting her daughters’s nails one day, Melanie Hurley noticed that drops of the traditional nail polish she was using were eroding the foam plate underneath.

Luckily, this unpleasant sighting led to a mommy call to action because it was then that Hurley decided to create a safer alternative — Piggy Paint.

The collection, which includes several bright solid and glittery colors, is made with a chemical-free, water-based formula making it completely non-toxic and odorless.

Plus, it offers the same salon-quality manicure as other polishes.
