EXPECTANT MUMS are famous for that “glow,” but as your pregnancy progresses you’ll probably start noticing more than just a rosy complexion (hello stretch marks and pigmentation). This lust list contains some of my beauty saviours which I highly recommend.
Sukin Wellbeing Body Oil
This delightful oil is part of my bedtime ritual. I slather it on straight after having a bath or shower when my skin is damp – this helps the oil seal in more hydration, which is great for preventing stretch marks and dry skin. The essential oils is 100 per cent natural and contains a luxurious blend of botanical oils, including rosehip and marula seed oils which was also helps promote skin elasticity and radiance.
Burt’s Bees – Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub
I’ve always be a fan of body scrubs, especially as the summer approaches. I just love the texture (and scent) of this scrub, which contains a lovely combination of sugar crystals and shea butter, mixed with natural seeds and pomegranate oils to gently polish and condition skin silky and soft. Hair
I never really thought about the hair products I used until my first pregnancy. Although I generally use products the are natural as possible, I never thought to look at the back of my shampoo bottle which were full of ingredients I couldn’t pronounce. This led me to Trichovedic, a range of nourishing products for dry and damaged hair that is free from sulphates, sodium chloride and parabens. A safe way to keep your locks luscious during pregnancy.
CC cream by Chanel
I know it sounds indulgent, but when your rushing out the door and need to cover those dark circles under your eyes, this stuff is a godsend. Not only does it have an SPF 50 to keep you protected from the sun, it also has decent coverage that doesn’t feel like heavy make up.
Triology Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
One of my favourite beauty ingredients: RESHIP, which is light, full of anti-ageing antioxidants, and extremely hydrating. Suitable for all skin types with no nasty chemicals, you can slather it on before bed, only to wake up with supple skin the next day.
Burt’s Bees Tinted lip balm
Whether it’s the summer sun or winter chill, my lips are always prone to getting chapped. This is the one product I’ve found that soothes and rehydrates my lips while adding a little splash of colour.
Can you feed your skin? Feeding your skin doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive – most of the must-eats are available at your supermarket for a fraction of the cost of an expensive face cream.
