Top Skincare Products Designed for Pregnancy
We all recognise that, during pregnancy, stretch marks are likely and the huge surge of hormones rampaging through your body can lead to dull, dry skin. However, just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to put up with these, although it can be hard trying to decode labels on beauty products to find the balance between what you want to use and what is safe to use. We don’t want any iffy ingredients seeping through our skin and potentially harming our babies.
With that in mind, UKMums.tv has taken a look at what you can use to keep the stretch marks at bay and keep your skin in tip-top condition - here’s a list of our top 5.
1. Mum’s Miracle Balm - gorgeously nourishing for skin which needs extra care with rehydrating and skin cell regeneration. The products are used by midwives and baby massage teachers so it’s certainly good enough for us!
2. Bio-Oil - a specialist skincare product which helps improve the appearance of stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It can also improve the appearance of scars, as well as ageing and dehydrated skin.
3. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula - an all-over-body massage lotion which helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Non-greasy, it can also help to relieve the dryness and itchiness associated with stretched skin during pregnancy.
4. Sanctuary Mum To Be Ultimate Retreat Hat Box - available from Boots, this indulgent box set contains a selection of luxurious bath and body products, perfect for pregnant women and new mum’s skin, ensuring the ultimate Sanctuary pampering experience both before and after your baby arrives. Go on, pamper yourself - you know you deserve it!
5. Neal’s Yard Mother’s Organic Collection Gift Set - a selection of luxurious, organic, softening, soothing and elasticity-boosting skincare products - pure, natural and safe to use during and after pregnancy.
