Episode 50: Why Your Skin Changes in Pregnancy & How Guinot's Beauty Therapist Can Help

When it comes to beauty news, most of us can’t resist getting updates on the latest trends and product launches. It’s fun to try out a sweetly smelling scent or a new skin-perfecting primer, right? But, let’s agree – it’s important to steer clear of marketing myth and media pressure…

Nobody wants to by a brand bestseller under false pretences. And not one person should feel shamed or stressed into buying beauty. But it happens all the time. Especially when it comes to industry marketing for pregnant women. 

Our podcast hosts put their heads together and get to the nitty-gritty of what pregnant women can and can’t use on their skin. It’s really important to listen to this show as Skin Therapist, Nicola, gives her best, caring advice for pre and post natal Mothers. In particular, she reveals how hormones can affect the pigmentation of skin in pregnancy.

She tells us how one product gives a 97% reduction in the appearance of dark spots.
