Exfoliate & MASSAGE
EXFOLIATE YOUR SKIN weekly by dry brushing with a brush made from natural fibres. This removes dead skin cells and also improves your circulation. Be sure to brush your entire body, except for your breasts. Use a tissue oil and gentle massage in this area. Watch out for cleansing products that contain harsh chemicals, such as sulphates. These can cause the skin to dry out – exactly the opposite of what you’re trying to achieve. It’s also important to use safe skincare products that don’t contain nasties such as parabens, phthalates and harsh dyes and ingredients. Products that include natural oils will hydrate your skin. And it’s very important to moisturise your skin. No matter what your skin colour, always use a sunscreen. Our sun is vicious and tough on skin, especially during pregnancy.
