It’s time to think about making the switch mamas! As we’re sure you’ve probably heard, WINTER IS COMING. And just like you wouldn’t carry on wearing your strappy tops & sandals into December (we hope!), colder weather calls for a whole new skin care regime & some gorgeous new maternity clothes! Take a look at our top tips for protecting your skin, so that your radiance can continue to glow through the colder months.
For the Face
Wondering why that perfect moisturiser you were using all summer suddenly isn’t doing the trick? With the incoming colder weather, instead of combating shine, your main objective is now to keep your skin hydrated. And the best place to start is by switching to a heavier, more hydrating moisturiser. For an extra radiance boost, make sure to choose skin care that’s pregnancy safe & designed for sensitive skin.

For the Hands
We know the feeling – As soon as the temperatures drop, your hands are the first to feel it. That’s because the skin on your hands is thinner than on the rest of your body, with fewer oil glands, meaning that they dry out much quicker. Fight back this winter with a heavy arsenal of pregnancy-friendly hand creams stashed anywhere you might need them – at your desk, by your bed, in your handbag. All’s fair in the war on chapped knuckles!

For the Body
As tempting as it may be to sink into a hot and steamy bath this time of year, your skin will thank you for dialling the temperature down. Not only does hot water dry out and damage your skin, it’s also not safe for your baby! Warm baths on the other hand are totally safe, fine for your skin & a fabulous way to relax – just make sure that you can get straight in without having to ease in bit by bit. Once you’re out of the bath, treat your skin by locking in the moisture with an all over body lotion!

For the Bump
No matter the time of year, if you have a growing bump be sure to treat it with an elasticising tummy rub to minimize your risk of stretch marks. Your skin goes through a lot when you’re pregnant, so the least you can do is to give it the best possible chances with plenty of Omega 3, 6 & 9 boosting skin care to build strength & elasticity.

For the Feet & Legs
Of course through the summer when our feet & legs are out on display we are all careful about keeping them well exfoliated & moisturised. But when they’re safely tucked away in jeans & boots, it can be all too easy to overlook them. Through pregnancy your pins are working harder than ever to carry you and your baby around all day, so don’t forget to show them some love too!
