Glowing Pregnancy: Pampering for You and Your Baby Bump!

/Carola van der Kooij

Recently, I treated an expectant mother to a delightful pregnancy massage and facial mask, and she wondered if it was safe to indulge in a beauty treatment while pregnant. While some online sources may be cautious, I believe it's crucial for expectant mothers to prioritize self-care during pregnancy. Let's explore why taking a moment to relax, even with a growing baby bump, is a wonderful idea.

The Pleasure of Pampering

There's nothing quite like sinking into a salon chair with perfect back support, knowing you don't have to worry about a thing. You deserve to be pampered, especially during this special time. Imagine a warm blanket enveloping you, your feet being pampered, your face being lovingly cleansed, scrubbed, massaged, and finally, that blissful warm towel over your face.

Skincare Tips for Expectant Moms

However, during pregnancy, it's important to pay attention to the products used. Pregnancy hormones can affect your skin, making it crucial to choose products that are gentle, natural, and effective. Some moms-to-be radiate a healthy pregnancy glow, while others may experience skin issues such as acne or dry, flaky skin due to hormonal changes.

Tips for Safe Product Choices

Every pregnancy is unique, just like every skin type. During this special time, hormonal fluctuations can have a surprising effect on your skin. That's why I recommend consciously choosing products free of parabens, alcohol, mineral oils, and other artificial substances. Your pregnancy is a time of bloom and growth, and it's worth pampering yourself and your little one with thoughtful choices in beauty products.

Carefully Selected Products

You deserve to be surrounded by products that embrace the beautiful journey of pregnancy. Opt for skincare products that not only highlight your beauty but also protect your baby's health. When you inform a salon that you are pregnant, they can respond accordingly. They adjust their products and also tailor their neck and shoulder massages to be safe during pregnancy.

Special Attention at the Salon

A salon that understands the specific needs of pregnant women will pay extra attention to your well-being. By openly communicating about your pregnancy, you create a space where professionals can tailor their services to your unique situation. There are certain areas during pregnancy where you may prefer not to be massaged, and an expert salon will take this into consideration.

So, dear expectant mothers, embrace those moments of pampering! Feel free to book that beauty treatment, listen to your body, and choose products that embrace the radiant beauty of pregnancy. You are beautiful, and you deserve all the love and care in the world.

Extra Building Blocks

And did you know that as an additional 'building block' treatment with me, you can add a mini-facial or a leave-in hair mask? During a 90-minute pregnancy massage, you can always enhance your experience with an additional facial or hair mask. Just let me know in advance. 

Enjoy it, pregnant ladies!
