Skin and Body Care for New and Expectant Mums

A baby is not the only thing nine months of pregnancy gives you – unfortunately for many, it also gives you stretch marks, hormonal breakouts and other unwanted side effects too. As your body goes through these changes, look after your skin with these solution-based products from Science of Skin. Developed by two medics – Professor Ardeshir Bayat and Mr Douglas McGeorge MBE – the moisturising, nourishing and most importantly, safe formulas will take care of your skincare needs from the first to the third trimester and beyond.

For those looking to address concerns about skin firmness and elasticity, especially in the neck area, consider incorporating a firming neck cream into your skincare routine. This targeted solution can help tighten and tone the delicate skin on your neck, providing a rejuvenated appearance.
