Beauty Products That Fake That Pregnancy Glow

March 01, 2017

Did you know that in pregnancy women pump about 25% more blood around their body, to support their uterus? It’s this increase in circulation that can make faces appear brighter – even flushed.  And as women’s bodies produce more hormones at this time, their oil glands go into overdrive, often producing that well-known pregnancy glow.

If you’re not one of the lucky ones to benefit from that special glow, don’t worry, we’ve got four great tips to help you fake it!

A good lip balm or cream.

Your lips can become very dry during pregnancy so it’s important to find a good nourishing lip cream. And here’s a top tip: once you’ve applied a lip balm, wear your usual lipstick over the top – it’s a great way to seal the moisture in, preventing chapped dry lips.

We love Burt's Bee Lip balm collection - each one of the super nourishing balms has its own natural tint.

Charcoal facial cleanser

Those fluctuating pregnancy hormones are also responsible for the, all too common, acne breakouts.  A charcoal facial cleanser is a great way to treat blemishes, but it also helps prevents spots appearing in the first place, by drawing out impurities in a way that a normal cleanser won't.

We love this Charcoal facial cleanser by Biore.

Daily moisturiser 

Are you suffering from unusually dry skin? Then, more than ever, you need to invest in a decent daily moisturiser. It can be used underneath your make up and will help rehydrate your skin to get that pregnancy glow with minimum hassle. 

We love Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, with built in SPF for those sunny days.

Glow foundation

Last, but not least, nothing achieves that pregnancy glow quite like a glow foundation. It should be every woman’s secret weapon, especially on those off days when you’re feeling tired. Glow foundation can make you skin look more luminous and give you that radiance that all pregnant women deserve.

We love NARS Sheer Glow foundation.
