Plant extracts such as chamomile, lavender, and grapefruit extract combat redness, fight blemishes and soothe irritated and hormonally-imbalanced skin. Phewf!

Getting Waxed During Pregnancy
Laser is no longer an option once you’ve got a bun in the oven, but thankfully waxing is still on the table! When the big day arrives, chances are you won’t be worrying about what your hair-down-there looks like. But in the final stages of pregnancy, when you can’t see your toes, and your baby bump is the size of a watermelon, and bending over is virtually impossible, doing any grooming below the waist will seem pretty much impossible. Getting a wax can be an easy, stress-free way to have a professional help you out. And you deserve a helping hand mama.
“Any seasoned mom will tell you just how psychologically important prioritizing self-care is.” – Petra Guglielmetti for Glamour Magazine. Most importantly, make sure to pamper yourself. Whether it be a bikini wax, or a new product, or just a nice long bubblebath, take care of yourself mama. This is a time in your life when self-care becomes a necessity.
