A natural nine months – pregnancy pampering that’s naturally good for you

Pregnancy can do strange things to your skin. If you’re not one of the lucky mums-to-be that attracts countless ‘you’re glowing!’ proclamations, you’re likely battling dryness and breakouts (growing a tiny human being can do that to you!). Let’s face it – we deserve to be pampered when preggo – so whether your skin is luminous or lacklustre, these beauty boosters are just the pick-me-up you need – and they’re natural to boot.

When I think about what I want to put on my skin when pregnant, I want it to be as natural as possible – nothing harsh with ingredients I can’t pronounce. Lush, luxurious, divine-smelling and natural, Burt’s Bees has created a skincare range that will have your skin singing through pregnancy and beyond.

The key to beautiful skin is moisture. Whether it’s in summer when the sun is at its harshest, or winter when we’re constantly enveloped in artificial heat – your skin is screaming out for hydration. The sublime new Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration range is 99 per cent natural, with a key ingredient of Clary Sage. It’s a plant that thrives in its harsh natural environment on the Mediterranean hills. That’s exactly why it’s the perfect addition to this hydrating range, which is all about keeping your skin at its prime.

The Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Day Lotion is all about working on those fine lines and wrinkles that seem to crop up once the kidlets come along! Again, natural is the buzz word when it comes to this product, with Bitter Orange Peel Extract to counteract all the harshness your skin endures.

The range also includes an Intense Hydration Treatment Mask (it’s creamy and lush and smells delicious), a Cream Cleanser, Night Cream and Eye Cream. The entire range is perfect for women who have precious little time to devote to their skin, but want to look and feel better. So that’s pretty much all of us!

If your skin could use a little extra love, Burt’s Bees BB Cream is a brilliant triple-duty product. It protects your skin using SPF 15, and is essentially a light foundation combined with a super-hydrating lotion. If your skin needs a luminous boost, this gem is your secret weapon.

As you prepare for the arrival for your little one, take the time to devote some love to your skin. You’ll feel better, look better and realise that just five minutes each day can give you a huge boost – both inside and out. Have a browse through the entire Burt’s Bees range for the face to discover which pre and post-birth skin solution is for you.
