We were thrilled to hear that self-declared selfie queen and beauty diva Kim Kardashian-West is pregnant again! Sure, we look to our gynaes and other experts in the medical fraternity for advice on how to stay healthy during pregnancy, but who better to look to for inspiration on how to do pregnancy beautifully than Kim K? 

We scoured the net to bring you some of the best mom-to-be’s little helpers that will keep you looking your preggie best, all nine months long…

Beauty concern: Stretch marks.

The solution: 

As with most of us, Kim gained a significant amount of weight during her first pregnancy, and she’s likely to be treating the resulting stretch marks with Mama Mio Tummy Rub Butter (R550, Wellness Warehouse stores nationwide). Kim and her sister Kourtney are devotees of the brand, a preggie-safe product, packed with Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. 

Other tummy-toning products you’ll love:

Bio-oil (R65.95, leading pharmacies nationwide)

Oh-lief Olive Oil Tumm Wax (R99, Woolworths stores nationwide).Oh-lief Olive Oil Tumm Wax (R99, Woolworths stores nationwide).

Extra virgin coconut oil, jojoba or almond oil (available at leading grocery and health stores)

Beauty concern: Busting out.

The Solution:

The rest of the world might think Kim’s voluptuous new curves look amazing, but that killer combo of weight gain, increased blood flow and raging hormones can cause painful breast sensitivity, stretch marks and a loss in elasticity. All three Kardashian sisters (Kim, Kourtney and Khloe) profess to using the Mamma Mio Pregnancy Boob Tube’s (R680, Wellness Warehouse stores nationwide) and attest to its ability in keeping the girls looking their bountiful best. 

Other bust-soothing must-haves you’ll love:

Innoxa Firming Neck and Bust Treatment (R139.95, Innoxa counters nationwide) 

Clarins Gel Buste Super Lift (R480, Clarins counters nationwide)

Decleor Aroma Sculpt (R615, Decleor counters nationwide)

Beauty concern: What pregnancy glow?!

The Solution:

Does the mythical ‘pregnancy glow’ even exist? Most women experience preggie-related adult acne, skin tags, broken capillaries and pigmentation. A sun-kissed glow can hide a multitude of skin imperfections - from stretch marks and cellulite, to broken veins. You don’t have to jet off on a beach holiday, make like Kim and opt for an organic spray tan like Tan Organics Self-Tan (R377, leading pharmacies nationwide)

Other skin-saving products you’ll love:

Body Shop Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion (R110, The Body Shop stores)

Caribbean Tan in a Can Gradual Colour (R94.95, leading pharmacies nationwide)

Beauty concern: Sleep-deprived eyes.

The solution: 

A rapidly expanding belly makes sleeping comfortably tricky, and the effects of not getting enough shut-eye for months on end may manifest in puffy under-eye bags and dark circles. You might also suffer from irritable, dry eyes. Kim carries a MAC 182 Buffer Brush (R560) and Lancôme Définicils High Definition Mascara (R390) in her handbag to perk up her peepers or freshen up for unexpected photo opportunities. 

Other eye-openers you’ll love:

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream (R120, The Body Shop stores)

Lush Enchanted Eye Cream (R195, Lush stores)

Beauty concern: Chipmunk cheeks.

The solution: 

Not only is your tummy expanding, most of us experience some degree of facial swelling or ‘spreading’ (thank you preggie hormones!).

Kim K - a.k.a ‘the Queen of Contouring’ - emphasizes her iconic chiselled cheekbones by contouring the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and brow area with SmashBox Bronze Lights in Suntan Matte (R460, SmashBox Counters Nationwide). 

Other face-saving products you’ll love:

MAC Studio Sculpt Defining Powder (R400, MAC stores nationwide)
