Félicitations pour ton nouveau bébé! One benefit of pregnancy is what you call pregnancy glow. This glow is due to your body increasing blood production and boosting blood circulation. As a result, your face tends to look rosier, brighter, or fuller. 

Fortunately, it is possible to maintain a healthy glow post-birth with a consistent skincare routine. French skincare products are often praised for their quality and effectiveness and use natural ingredients ideal for new mothers who have just given birth.

Here, we’ll provide you with a guide to maintaining the pregnancy glow post birth using French skincare: 

Postpartum skincare to maintain your pregnant woman glow

Cleanse Gently

As with any skincare routine, start with a mild cleanser that removes pollutants without stripping your skin of its natural oils. Look for creamy or micellar cleansers like Bioderma Sensibio H2O or Nuxe Very Rose or Embryolisse Lait-Creme Foaming Cream Milk, Waterproof Gentle Cleansing Milk, which are gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. Embryolisse also have an Exfoliating Milk Powder that transforms into an airy, milky cloud when combined with water, also perfect for sensitive skin.

Hydrate Intensively

The next step in maintaining that pregnancy glow post-birth is ensuring your skin is hydrated. Remember that hydration is crucial for maintaining a healthy glow. Use a hydrating serum like Embryolisse Hydra-Serum or Caudalie Blemish Control with ingredients such as hyaluronate, which repairs and regenerates skin while moisturising it. Alternatively, if you are acne-prone, we recommend SVR Sebiaclear Serum, designed for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Incorporate Antioxidants

Antioxidants shield your skin from harmful environmental factors and promote a radiant complexion. Look for vitamin C products such as La Roche Posay or SVR VitaminC10 Serum or Vitamin E Serum from Etat Pur. These antioxidants can help brighten your skin and even out its stone, maintaining your pregnancy glow post-birth.

Don’t Forget Sun Protection

While we know you are busy tending to le bébé, there may be times when you have to head out to run some errands. Thus, always use sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun. Sunscreen, such as Avene Sunscreen Emulsion SPF50, is essential for preventing premature ageing and maintaining your skin’s health post-birth.

Nourish with French Beauty Oils

Finally, French skincare often incorporates luxurious oils like argan, rosehip, or jojoba. Oils such as Nuxe Oil or L’occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil can deeply nourish your skin and give it a glowing, healthy appearance. Use them as a moisturiser or add a few drops to your existing skincare products, and we’re sure you can maintain that pregnancy glow post-birth. Additionally, if you’ve had stretch marks during pregnancy, you must use Mustela Stretch Marks Oil to improve its appearance. 




How can I get beautiful skin after delivery?

We know that your skin can get sensitive during pregnancy, and not everyone might get what they call the pregnancy glow. Nonetheless, incorporating a consistent skincare routine like the ones highlighted in this article can help you have radiant and beautiful skin after delivery. 

How long does pregnancy glow last?

Your pregnancy glow may end as your body returns to its pre-pregnancy state. However, properly caring for your skin can create a renewed glow post-birth.

What kind of soap to use after giving birth?

You may opt for Roge Cavailles Ultra-rich Cleansing Gel, formulated for sensitive skin, especially if your skin changes due to hormones during pregnancy. Or, if you prefer the bar type, we can recommend Thalgo Algae Cleansing Bar, which you can also use for your face.
