Pregnancy "Belly Masks" Are A Thing And We Love It

Pregnancy belly masks are plant based, contain Aloe Vera and are paraben-free.

So pregnancy belly masks are an absolute thing and I had no idea. They have taken pregnancy self-care to a whole new level and I kind of love that. I think for a lot of women face masks are the quintessential pampering tool. They are the visual representation of "do not disturb". After using a face mask you feel refreshed and calm, not to mention having silky smoothe skin. I can really see how the same thing would apply to your pregnancy belly.

I don't know what it is about pregnancy but it seems to go hand in hand with self-care for a lot of women. For both of my pregnancies I prioritised pampering myself because it made me feel good on so many different levels. At a time where my body was changing before my very eyes it helped me to stay connected to it.

Before and after my pregnancies I struggled to justify taking that time to look after myself. What is it about motherhood and the fact that we will happily do things for our children (even if they are in utero) but struggle to do it for just ourselves?

Actress and dancer Jenna Dawson is a fan of belly masks. In a recent Instagram post the "Step Up" actress posted a photograph of her using a belly mask with the caption "can you spot the 😉" referring to the decorative wink symbol that appears on this brand of belly masks. In the beautiful photograph Jenna is wearing a stunning lacy bra and appears to have wet hair. She is rocking the pregnancy self-care look.

Pregnancy belly masks are plant based, contain Aloe Vera and are paraben-free. We all know that stretch-marks are completely normal and natural but as someone who was certifiably addicted to applying my pregnancy belly butter, I just know these would have been right up my street.
