Mother & Baby (UK) - - BUMP & BIRTH -

It’s best to choose a min­eral sun­block when you’re preg­nant, which uses nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents to scat­ter and re­flect harm­ful rays, and is gen­tler on your more sen­si­tive skin. Slather on Tropic Skin Shade Min­eral Sun Pro­tec­tion (£28 for 200ml, trop­ic­skin­, avail­able in SPF 15, 30 and 50. Pay par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to your bump, which can be more prone to burn­ing, and be aware that you may need a higher SPF now you’re preg­nant. Some non-min­eral sun­blocks con­tain ad­di­tives that can en­ter your blood­stream and may af­fect the health of your grow­ing baby, so it’s vi­tal to read the la­bel care­fully. Avoid sun­blocks which con­tain in­gre­di­ents end­ing in ‘-ben­zone’, es­pe­cially oxy­ben­zone.
