With the news Kim Kardashian is pregnant with baby #2, the Internet awaits her next beauty move. Here we look at the best celebrity pregnancy tips and tricks for every trimester!
These stars managed to still stay looking glam throughout their pregnancies. Steal their beauty saviours.
During her pregnancy with North, Kim swapped her lavish beauty tastes for those more logical. In an attempt to reduce the risk of stretch marks, she opted for an internationally renowned celebrity favourite: Bio Oil, $14.99. “It prevents wrinkles around my eyes and stretch marks over my body,” she said at the time.
There's no denying – after four children – Victoria still looks amazing. Celebrity folklore points to a minimal diet and maximum exercise regime, but that can only do so much for stretched post-pregnancy skin. For VB, Elemis Camellia Oil Blend, $62, proved her essential. “I have used this throughout every pregnancy, it’s amazing!” she enthused.
As the mother of the future King and/or Queen of England, it’s safe to say the Duchess of Cambridge is taking no risks when it comes to avoiding harsh chemicals during her pregnancies. Always aglow, she maintained her radiance with DHA-free Bronze Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, $72 and to maintain underlying skin health, Catherine opted for a New Zealand-founded favourite - Trilogy Rosehip Oil, $35.95.
With her heaven-sent genes, it's not really surprising that the supermodel has come out of pregnancy with an unscathed silhouette, but her best beauty secret for her bump was one of her very own KORA Organic creations. "I used the Rosehip Oil ($59.95) throughout my entire pregnancy and I don't have a single stretch mark,” she admits. “I had a ten-pound baby! It's really nourishing and full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids."
Following a self-imposed, post-pregnancy career hiatus (daughter Marlowe is almost three), Sienna Miller is now back wowing red carpets globally. And she looks more radiant than ever! Of her pregnancy product choices, she has said she loved Dr. Hauschka Blackthorn Body Oil, $37. But she also admits Mama Mio products proved “brilliant” as was the Cowshed Udderly Gorgeous range. “There's so much out there," Sienna has said of her pregnancy beauty choices.
The mum of six never seems to stop, and although her troupe is no longer in baby mode, when tiny Angelina was pregnant with twins, Knox and Vivienne, she used 100 natural Shea Terra Organics Mama’s Gold Stretch Mark Prevention and Treatment Oil as her small frame bloomed.
“I try and test a lot of different skincare products, and unfortunately sometimes they make me breakout, so it’s good to know what works for you and your skin,” says Lara of the research process she invested into her own range, The Base. While pregnant though, Lara has kept it efficient and easy. “I recently got Go-To cleanser and exfoliating wipes and they’re really cool”, she has said. “The wipes are so handy to travel with, and the cleanser is awesome too – it gets rid of all your makeup in one go which makes life so much easier.”
Mother of two and founder of The Honest Company, Jessica Alba has successfully correlated her career and her kids, by establishing the company that refutes any use of chemicals that are harmful to the skin or the environment. Whether pregnant or not, Jessica opts for The Honest Company’s Prenatal Multi-Vitamins. “Hair and nails get stronger and more lustrous from the probiotics and nutrients in these multivitamins,” she enthuses.
The former wrestler turned presenter and previous sweetheart of George Clooney proved iron-willed when it came to remaining chemical-free during her pregnancy, saying she used a coconut oil, pure Shea butter and sweet almond oil mix all over her skin daily to keep it supple and stretch-mark free. “My body loves it!” she said at the time.
Possibly offering her sister some tips at the moment, three-time-mother Kourtney has certainly bounced back already after the birth of her children Mason, Penelope and Reign. Her secret? “I’m constantly using this pregnancy skin-care from Mama Mio,” she has confirmed. “There’s one cream for your boobs and a few for your stomach. After I shower, I take five minutes to myself to apply the lotions and really take care of my skin.”
