Pregnancy has been no laughing matter for comedian Amy Schumer but she’s found that a greener change to her beauty routine has helped and it could be beneficial for other moms dealing with morning sickness, too.

Schumer has spent the better part of her pregnancy dealing with the extreme symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum, a type of severe morning sickness. She was hospitalized early in her pregnancy and even forced to cancel tour dates. However, the comedian recently mixed up her beauty routine and not only does she have that beautiful pregnancy glow but it’s helping her symptoms as well.

In a recent video post for Beautycounter, Schumer explained that she’s made the switch to cleaner beauty care and that the toxin-free and scent-free products have made a difference. “Especially being pregnant and puking so much during pregnancy, a smell would set me right off,” she said.

Becoming a mom is what prompted her to make a switch in the first place. “Now that it wasn’t just me taking care of my dirtbag self, I was like, ‘there’s also a baby living in me, I should also be conscious of the products I’m using,’” Schumer explained in the video.
