We spoke to Dr Gabriella, Aesthetic doctor at SkinCision Clinic by Allen Rezai MD, who gave us the lowdown. "During pregnancy there is a change in the hormone level within a woman's body, particularly an increase in oestrogen, n oestrogen, progesterone, alongside a forty percent increase in blood volume and an increase in cell turnover," she said.

Dr Gabriella added: "The increase in blood flow and extra volume can make the skin appear brighter and glowing which we can see in photos of Beatrice recently.

"Progesterone levels increase, which in turn can increase sebaceous gland activity which can create more oil for the scalp and skin, giving more glowing skin and shiny hair. This can also contribute to that glow particularly for those mothers who have previously suffered with dry skin or hair.  A high turnover of cells of the skin leaves a more radiant appearance."

Speaking of supplements, getting into a habit of taking them daily can work wonders, particularly ones that are designed to encourage hair growth from within. Manifesto are nutritionist formulated beauty gummy supplements that contain essential hair-supportive vitamins and minerals to provide extra targeted support for hair (plus skin and nails too.)

Manifesto Beauty gummies contain biotin which is recommended as a dietary supplement for strengthening hair as it helps mucous membranes and promotes cell growth, and as biotin is a water-soluble vitamin and is not stored in the body it must be provided from food and supplementation.
