Three of the best for mums-to-be
Combat stretch marks with a twice-daily gentle massage over your growing body and bump – here are our fave pregnancy safe stretch mark solvers.
- Soybean and cocoa butter help increase the skins elasticity in this wonderfully thick cream. Naked Serenity Stretch Mark Cream (150ml, 3.98)
- A gorgeously, creamy melt-in- your-skin butter that’s crammed with Omega 3, 6 and 9. Mama Mio tummy rub stretch mark butter (125g, 23)
- Luxuriate in passionflower and sweet almond oil and say so long to stretch marks. Boo Boo Super Stretchy Miracle Oil (100ml, 14.99)
Switch your scent
Lighten up your fragrance as the seasons change – that way, even if the sun isn’t shining, a summery scent will lift your spirits regardless. Change to a body mist, a lighter fragrance or try a hair mist. We think Rose Aurore Eau Fraiche (75ml, £37) or Pivoine Flora Hair Mist (100ml, £13.50), both by L’Occitane, encapsulate summer.
Melt away your make-up
Make taking your make-up off less of a chore and more of a luxury experience with this gorgeous Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm by Elemis (105g, £39.50). A new addition to their award-winning anti-ageing range, this sense-soothing blend is packed with opulent essential oils such us geranium, chamomile, ho wood and clove. Suitable for all skin types, it cleanses without drying out the skin – we can’t wait till bedtime!
