Maternity beauty solutions

Clarins has developed unique application methods that are easy to do at home.

Prevent stretch marks

Your skin stretches during pregnancy which can damage the elastic fibres within the dermis leading to unwanted stretch marks.

CLARINS TIP Cool water promotes firmer skin. Try showering cold especially from the ankles to the thighs.

1 Look great: Exfoliate!

  • Exfoliating Body Scrub

    • Apply Exfoliating Body Scrub to dry or damp skin using circular movements to remove dead surface skin cells, to reveal brighter, smoother and more radiant skin.

    • Apply also to the tummy, bottom, décolleté and arms.

    • You can also use Exfoliating Body Scrub on what Clarins calls the natural bra area - from the base of the breasts up to the chin.

2 Stay flexible!

  • Tonic Body Treatment Oil "Firming/Toning"

  • Place hands flat against the lower part of the tummy. Gently move hands up and down in opposite directions.

3 Minimise stretch marks

  • Stretch Mark Minimizer

  • Lightly “pinch” the skin on your tummy, working towards the tightest areas. This pinching may become difficult towards the end of your pregnancy. Instead, make light, circular movements with the fingertips.

A beautiful bust

Your breasts are becoming heavier as they get ready for your baby. Taking special care of the bust area is an essential part of your
pre and post-natal routine.

CLARINS TIP Make your bra a priority!
It provides good support for your bust. Look for deep cups and wide straps with an underwire.

APPLICATION METHOD

1 Exfoliate!

  • Exfoliating Body Scrub

  • Apply Exfoliating Body Scrub to what Clarins calls the natural bra area - from the base of the breasts up to the chin.

2 Firm

  • Bust Beauty Firming Lotion

  • Using the palm of your left hand, apply the product in a circular motion around the right breast, working from the outside in, then move up above the breast to the décolleté. Repeat on the left breast using the right hand.

EASY EXERCICES

  • Stand up with elbows against your sides, a book “clasped” under each arm, keeping the forearms horizontal and the palms of the hands facing the ceiling. Move the forearms outwards, keeping the upper arms tight against the body.
    Hold this position for 10 seconds and repeat 10 times

  • Join both hands together at nose level, keeping the elbows horizontal and pushing the palms of your hands together, exerting as much pressure as possible.
    Repeat 15 times.

  • Strengthening the tissue that supports your breasts is as easy as stretching your lips into a wide smile - you’ll soon notice that the nipples appear higher with each muscle contraction.
    Repeat 15 times.

Relax & soothe your legs

Make sure your legs stay relaxed and refreshed throughout your pregnancy as they support extra weight during this time.

Swollen feet?

  • Energizing Emulsion

  • Apply by massaging deeply into the soles of the feet, then continue by massaging up the legs using light pressure, as if you were rolling on stockings.

  • CLARINS TIP Take one foot at a time between your two hands and reshape the arch from toe to heel. This massage is best performed with Energising Emulsion or Contour Body Treatment Oil.

A healthy, glowing complexion

Keep skin soft and radiant with expert skin care and enhance it with our pick of make-up favourites – perfect for during pregnancy and after!

CLARINS TIP Avoid a “pregnancy mask” by protecting your skin from the damaging effects of UV rays and pollution. UV Plus Anti-pollution SPF 50 provides effective protection and is ultra-light on skin. It can be used with your favourite Clarins moisturisers for best results.

PAMPER YOUR SKIN

1Brighten

  • Multi-Active Eye

  • Put a small amount on your finger tip and apply with light, tapping motions to the eye contour. Continue with the applicator tip for added drainage and brightening of the eye contour area.
