Being a mum is the most precious thing in the world but it is also essential for mums and mums-to-be to have the right beauty products for skin and hair care. Pregnancy and fresh motherhood brings about a host of skin issues like stretch marks, bloating etc and as news moms or about-to-be moms, it’s very difficult to find the right products; and then you end up neglecting your skin care and despising the aftermath. Those days of self negligence are gone; fitness and celebrity mums have proven that you can still glow whether you just entered motherhood or you are about to so it’s best to stack up an arsenal of healthy beauty products that you would need during this period.

New mums


Here are the recommended products for motherhood:

1. Hair care, especially washing your hair, is easy to forget when you are nursing, so make sure to have on hand a good shampoo.

2. Motherhood comes with sleepless nights and that means you get to have dark circles and eye-bags so it’s best to invest in a really good concealer like the ‘we-love’ benefits classic Boi-ing

3. During pregnancy and motherhood, there is a period where your skin becomes very sensitive, you begin to have pigmentations (some mothers even have hyper pigmentation), acne etc. Mama Moi’s 3-step Skin Care System is recommended. This product, which is designed for about-to-be mums comes in a set of three, which include day and night cream, face-wash and serum to help fight your hormonal reaction.

4. Now stretch marks are a must-have, therefore to ward off stretch marks and retain skin flexibility, get a very good stretch mark busting balm like Neal’s Yard remedies mother balm.

5. Pregnancy puts your body through a lot of changes, so it’s best to arm yourself with essential oils that would restore strength, skin flexibility, and would keep your skin luminous and sharp. Balance Me super moisturizing’ body oil promises this actions and it also acts on stretch marks.

6. Other essentials include a tummy wax (Oh-Lief Natural Tummy Wax), a spa kit (for when you want to spoil yourself a little), what skin needs-skin balm, Bio oil, bloom and blossom soothing nipple balm, Mama Mio tummy rub butter, peppermint feet cooling lotion and so many others.
