“Pregnant women become spiritually and physically attractive,” quoted author Frederick In his book Prenatal Parenting. “There is a serene radiance of fertility and ripeness,” he wrote too and this is a very joyful moment when a mother welcomes the changes to take place in her body happily just because she is going to give birth to a new life. An expectant mother should always be happy and satisfied as the way she acts, feel and behave is all going to have an impact on the baby.

Beauty Tips During Pregnancy:

There are several body changes occur for every pregnant lady. Here are the best beauty tips during pregnancy that can beautify your body.

1.  Multiple Changes:

Pregnancy would give you a special glow but it changes your complexions and also reduces the color of your hair. The multiple changes occur due to changes in hormones and an increase in the volume of blood. The weirdest thing is that it sometimes makes thin hair glossy and thick or dry hair oily.

2. Freckles And Pigmentation:

Lighter freckles turn dark overnight and patches of pigmentation start to be visible on the face. This is called miasma or the ‘pregnancy mask’. This is caused by the rise in the level of the hormone oestrogen which causes the production of melanin. Getting out in the sun could make it worse so that should be avoided, though SPFs could do a good job of retaining the beauty of the skin outdoors and can be applied even in winter.

3. Acne’s:

Increase in blood circulation which eventually leads to black pores and acne. Women who face this sort of change should keep on cleansing their skin thoroughly. Removing makeup before going to bed is a must and exfoliation of skin at least once a week is good, especially for dry-skinned women. Getting a relaxed facial could be good for cleaning blackheads and washing away the impurities which lead to acne.

4. Dark Circles:

Dark circles are pretty common among women who are pregnant. They face this problem usually towards the end when they don’t get a proper position in which they can sleep. Disturbed sleep always leads to dark circles so the best solution at this point would be to sleep. You could wet a flannel with cold water and then hold it over your eyes and dark circles for an immediate cure if it’s that important.

5. Rough Hands:

Smooth hands all of a sudden start becoming red and rough overnight. It happens if you have been washing your hands with soap or detergent for a long time. This is a perfect symptom to tell you about your pregnancy initially. You cannot do anything to prevent this but you can definitely wear a pair of gloves and not keep the palms exposed.

6. Puffy Eyes:

Water retention becomes a serious issue because as the baby grows it puts on weight on the blood vessels in the abdomen and legs. Your skin might become tightened and your eyes will become puffy. Try and rest so that you don’t need to lean upon your legs and give them pressure or you could apply an ice pack on your ankles.

7. Stretch Marks:

Stretch marks are the most irritating thing for pregnant women. They are red lines which form due to the stretching of the body and develop all around the stomach, waistline and back. If you keep oiling and moisturizing your area of pull, you might get an easy way out to curb these marks from growing.

8. Growth Of Fingernails:

From the fourth month onwards the expectant women start growing longer and faster nails. The hormones are again the cause of this. Fingernails are prone to breakage as they become soft. You might even find tiny grooves developing on the base. They tend to normalize about delivery.


During pregnancy, maintaining a beauty routine focused on natural and gentle products, as well as staying hydrated and prioritizing self-care, can help expectant mothers feel radiant and confident while safeguarding their baby’s health. Always consult a healthcare professional for specific recommendations tailored to your unique pregnancy journey.
