Beauty secrets of pregnant celebrities

As she approaches herdue date, the Duchess of Cambridge is looking as glowy-skinned as ever. So what’s her secret? Rosehip oil, apparently. According to sources, the Duchess has been using Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil on her face to hydrate and anti-age her skin during her second pregnancy. As well as being rich in skin-nourishing vitamin C, the oil is also packed with omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to brighten and smooth skin. As with most of Kate’s favourite things, the oil has already sold out online at Boots. But don’t worry, there are plenty more beauty secrets the stars swear by…

Mama Mio Boob Tube, £31 for 100ml,

Gwyneth Paltrow was a fan of this bust-shaping cream during both her pregnancies. Even before you get pregnant the skin on your décolletage is prone to sagging and creping because it's thinner, it's prone to gravity-induced sagging, caused by gaining or losing weight and changes in breast size, and it's regularly exposed to the elements, unlike the skin on your stomach. This cream contains CoQ10 to strengthen the skin's collagen (known as the 'building blocks of skin', collagen keeps skin plump and bouncy and decreases with age). It also contains omega-rich oils and shea butter, soothing cucumber extract and dandelion root to nourish and firm skin.

This cult beauty buy has won more than 200 skincare awards, costs less than a tenner and is popular with many famous mums. 'I smothered myself in Bio-Oil three to four times a day during my pregnancy,' says TOWIE star Billie Faiers, mum to Nelly. 'I kept it in my handbag.' The Saturdays singer Una Foden, who recently gave birth to her second child, a son called Tadhg, says: 'I discovered Bio Oil while I was pregnant with my daughter Aoife and loved it so much I carried on using it. I even use it on my face.' The bright orange oil contains plant extracts and vitamins to hydrate and strengthen skin and it's also been proven to improve scar healing.
