Pregnancy is one of the most anticipated moments in a woman’s life. However, if the “glow” of pregnancy has left you with blotchy skin, dark circles and stretch marks, you may not feel very glamourous during this time. The good news is that you can still look gorgeous during pregnancy by following these simple techniques:

TO PREVENT STRETCH MARKS:

MASSAGE pregnancy safe body butter into your skin for at least 10 minutes (per application), to encourage blood flow to the area. This process will greatly assist in reducing the development of stretch marks. Aim for applying twice per day.

RESIST the urge to scratch your skin. Scratching your already irritated skin can cause further damage to current stretch marks and may lead to irreversible scaring. Massaging body butter or Coconut Oil into your skin will help ease itching.

DRINK plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated. Keeping well hydrated will assist your body in retaining the natural elasticity of the skin. This will in turn help prevent stretch marks appearing. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water per day.

TO PREVENT BLOTCHY SKIN:

TAKE Folic Acid supplements. Research has suggested that a deficiency in folic acid during pregnancy may increase the amount and level of skin discoloration.

WEAR Sunscreen with SPF 15 to prevent brown spots becoming darker and stay out of the sun to discourage new spots forming.

a€¢ LIGHTEN dark patches the natural way using topical Vitamin C serum under your daily moisturizer.

You can also cover up blotchy skin using (pregnancy safe) mineral makeup concealer.

CHAMOMILE tea bags are great for reducing the appearance of puffy, tired eyes. Simply place one (cooled) tea bag over each eyelid for 10 minutes.

EXERCISE will improve circulation. Even though pregnancy can drain every ounce of energy you have, remember that one of the reason for under eye circles is a lack of circulation. Aim for 20 minutes per day of gentle exercise (such as short walks).

SLEEP will not only improve your mood but will help your skin and body to rejuvenate. Aim for 8 hours per day.

TO REDUCE VARICOSE VEINS:

PULL ON elastic support stockings. In addition to relieving aching legs, pregnancy safe support stockings can prevent blood from pooling in your veins, which will reduce the bulging appearance.

ELEVATE legs when resting. This will help the circulation of blood in your legs.

AVOID standing for long periods of time and don’t cross your legs when sitting. This will prevent blockages in the veins.

When selecting makeup and cosmetics during pregnancy you should aim for natural and organic wherever possible. Avoid products with toxic chemicals, including those with Parabens, Retinoids, Talc and Propylene Glycol. Also make sure you check with your treating doctor that these techniques are suitable for your stage of pregnancy and in your particular circumstances.
