Woman rubs cream onto her face

Whether you’re enjoying that pregnancy glow or need a little something to perk you up, we’ve picked the best beauty buys for you and your bump. Here’s your step-by-step guide to feeling gorgeous

Smooth stretch marks

Talk your partner into giving you a gentle daily tummy massage – it’s a good way to bond with your bump – using an oil or moisturising cream to keep skin supple.

Try: Palmer’s Massage Lotion For Stretch Marks

Improve skintone…

Pregnancy weight gain can highlight existing cellulite (so unfair!) and while you can’t get rid of it, gentle exfoliation in the shower will improve circulation and help minimise its appearance.

Try: Bath Essentials Exfoliating Gloves

 …and pep up circulation

Slather some nourishing shower cream onto your exfoliating gloves before you get started.

Try: Original Source Coconut Shower Cream

Give your hair gloss

Increased oestrogen levels and blood flow usually mean your hair is looking its best during pregnancy but there’s nothing wrong with giving it a little extra TLC!

Try: Pantene Smooth and Sleek

Ease achy legs with a massage

Poor circulation and water retention can leave your legs feeling tired and heavy. Try massaging your legs and ankles each night before you go to bed with a soothing and conditioning body butter.

Try: Vaseline Aloe Fresh Moisturiser Lotion

Deep treat your tresses

Nourish frazzled, misbehaving locks with a deep treatment.

Try: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment

Soothe puffy eyes

Try keeping your eye gel or cream in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. Before applying, splash your eye area with warm water – the temperature extremes will help to boost circulation.

Try: L’Oreal Revitalift Anti Wrinkle Eye Cream

Give yourself a glow

If the pregnancy bloom hasn’t reached your skin yet, look no further – this is easy to blend and gives you a soft-focus glow, what’s not to like?

Try: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector in Medium

Target spotty skin

If your teenage acne has returned with a vengeance, blame your hormones (again!). A weekly face mask will help draw out impurities and soothe sore spots.

Try: Quick Fix Facials Anti-Blemish Mud Mask
