When you’re pregnant, taking care of your body has never been more important. One of the many aspects of good self-care during pregnancy is adequately nourishing your skin. Here are a couple of skincare products recommended for preggy bellies and soon-to-be moms.
Oh-Lief Tummy Wax
Stop those stretch marks with Oh-Lief’s Natural Olive Tummy Wax. Known for its nourishing and restorative properties, Oh-Lief’s Tummy wax contains virgin coconut oil to moisturise your growing bump. Baobab oil, another key ingredient, boosts your skin’s elasticity and is great for treating all types of skin conditions such as eczema.
Massage Oh-Lief Tummy Wax into your baby bump, hips and thighs twice daily. It’s easily absorbed and contains 100% natural certified organic ingredients, which means this product is completely safe to use during your entire pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
GLÜKi Organics Tissue Oil
GLÜKi Organics is a quality, plant-based skincare product range for mom and baby. The therapeutic value of each ingredient is what sets this natural brand apart. The plant-based ingredients in GLÜKi Organics Tissue Oil, including Marula Seed oil and Jojoba Seed Oil, support collagen and elastin regrowth, keeping your baby bump skin at its best. The therapeutic value of omega oils, vitamin E and micro nutrients helps your skin look and feel healthier.
Mama Mio Pregnancy Facial Wash
Mama Mio is synonymous with pregnancy skincare. With a “no nasties” policy and cutting-edge ingredients, Mama Mio is one of SA’s most effective skincare ranges for moms-to-be. The Mama Mio Gorgeous Glow Pregnancy Facial Wash is a lightly foaming face wash that fights blemishes and deep cleanses the skin.
Mama Mio Pregnancy Boob Tube Cream

The cream also contains green cabbage leaf extract to ease swelling in those post-birth days.
Palmer’s Tummy Butter
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Tummy Butter is often recommended for use during and after pregnancy. This well-known product contains Bio C-Elaste, which is a combination of collagen, elastin, centella asiatica, almond oil and argan oil. The addition of lavender adds a soothing element, which makes it the ideal product for a relaxing nighttime treatment, and it’s hypoallergenic, paraben free and dermatologically tested.

Not to worry – you can look your pregnancy best with Dermafix’s Circle Light Dark Circle Corrector. This is an eye gel that quickly and effectively reduces dark circles under your eyes and can help minimise fine lines and puffiness.
