I’m calling it. Pregnant woman get the raw end of the stick when it comes to pampering sessions.
We aren’t allowed to take extra hot baths in the first trimester. We need to avoid massages to certain areas. And, by the final trimester, we can barely see our toes, let alone reach them to apply nail polish.
And don’t even get me started on attempting to shave ANY area. It’s just not worth the contortion.
So imagine our complete and utter glee when we discovered someone made a special sheet skin mask just for our growing bumps!
Enter the Belly Mask
It’s a mask. For our bellies. Because our stretching stomachs deserve a bit of TLC too.
Designed by Hatch Collection, the US$12 mask covers our tummy in a strange see-through sheet-like substance. It’s very lightweight and barely noticeable except for the cute little eye symbol near the top. So you can see it when you Instagram your belly mask, no doubt.
Each mask is loaded with aloe vera and propolis which are ace for soothing and hydrating skin. In fact, it’s supposed to help minimise stretch marks and soften inflamed scar tissue postpartum. Yes, we can use it after baby too!
Unlike most face masks, Belly Mask doesn’t have to be rinsed off. Which means we don’t have to get up and force ourselves into the shower. Simply apply it, sit, and let it absorb into the skin. Then remain seated for several more minutes/hours. Preferably with a block of chocolate in your hand. Possibly a slice of pizza in the other.
Pretty cool, right? But here’s the part we’re not too happy about. Belly Masks aren’t available in Australia just yet. But we have faith they will in the future. After all, we Aussie mums NEED some belly mask love too!
