Luscious Locks

Whether you’ve got thicker hair than usual, or pregnancy hormones have left yours limp and lifeless, bring back the bounce – without the chemicals. A’kin’s Rosemary Shampoo is pure, organic and smells like an English herb garden.

If you’re thinking of dying your hair, but are worried about the chemicals, opt for a gentle vegetable tint such as henna, or highlights which have less contact with the scalp.

Rosemary Shampoo, £6.49, A’kin, available at My Pure.

Radiant Complexion

Your skin may be blooming but huge hormonal changes may also lead to spots, over sensitivity or dryness.

Avoid harsh cleansers that strip your skin of its natural balance and soothe your face with Dr. Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light, a light, beautifully scented cream with plant extracts to calm and nourish the skin.

Rose Day Cream Light, £19, Dr. Hauschka.

For an extra instant glow, dust bronzer over cheekbones and and your collarbone.

Beautiful Bump

Help prevent stretch marks by massaging a handful of sweet almond or vitamin E oil over your bump. Not only will it keep your skin super supple, it’ll help relax your body. Remember to treat them after birth as well.
