Check out the 5 surprising beauty benefits of being pregnant...
Time for a glow-up? The sought-after 'pregnancy glow' is real and is a result from an increase in blood volume, oestrogen, and progesterone. These expertly blend together to give your skin a rosier, radiant and all-round fuller appearance. Sounds good to us...
1) Your skin may glow
During the third trimester, it isn’t uncommon to find the ligaments in your hips softening to enable the birth canal to widen in preparation for labour. That means that finding yourself with softer, sexier curves comes as one of the nicer surprises that pregnancy has in store!
2) You’ll may have new curves
While some see this as a perk and others a curse, your breasts can double in size during pregnancy. Increases in oestrogen lead to increased breast tissue production, leading to a larger bust.
3) Your breasts may increase in size
No reason to purse your lips during pregnancy now. The increase in blood volume not only effects your skin, but your lips, too. The hormonal changes you experience lead to a redder, fuller look for your lips.
4) Your lips may appear fuller
While pregnancy is, unfortunately, often associated with skin breakouts, a little-known side-effect is that unpleasant skin conditions can be cleared-up during pregnancy! Eczema, psoriasis, and other inflammatory skin conditions may clear-up or be less active as your body adapts to nurturing your baby.
5) You may notice an improvement in certain skin conditions
