Pregnancy is a very special time and mums to be receive plenty of information to help them understand the importance of looking after themselves while they are growing a new life. 

The research and media tend to focus on what goes on inside the body, so there is plenty of advice to follow about what to eat and what not to eat and drink during pregnancy to ensure the health of the baby and its Mum-to-be.

However, it is just as important to look after the body on the outside too.

Pregnancy can wreak havoc with the skin, as hormonal changes and surges can cause a range of skin conditions from oily skin to dryness, rosacea to hyperpigmentation. Caring for the skin well during pregnancy gives a longer term benefit even after the baby is born.

However, it is important to understand what treatments and products are safe for use during pregnancy

Caring for the body on the inside is a vital step towards a glowing skin on the outside:

  • diet and nutrition – advice on how to nourish a body undergoing dramatic changes
  • treatments – to keep skin in tip top condition
  • products – understand what lotions are safe for use during pregnancy
  • training – care for your body throughout pregnancy by maintaining a safe and sensible fitness regime – this investment will help your body be strong for childbirth and aid its recovery afterwards
