Forget Face Masks: Belly Masks Are the Pregnancy Pampering Tools You Need
Face masks are undeniably one of the hottests trends in skin care items of the past few years. From Target’s Mizon to La Mer, pretty much every beauty brand has jumped on the mask bandwagon. Now, one brand is bringing something big to the sheet mask market. And we mean literally big. The Hatch Mama Belly Mask delivers the same results of a soothing face mask—but fits on your baby bump.
The mask is part of a brand new pregnancy-safe beauty line from HATCH Collection, our Best of Baby Award-winning maternity clothing line. It contains aloe vera and propolis, an all-natural bee product. Propolis is cited as having anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing powers, so when combined with aloe, this mask will really pack a hydrating and healing punch.
One thing to note: The all-natural mask makes big promises. It not only claims to “help minimize stretch marks during pregnancy,” but also “help soften inflamed scar tissue postpartum.” The overwhelming majority of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy, but how long they’ll stick around and how drastic they’ll look will depend on a combination of factors. But if this belly mask really does make a difference, it will require a lot less energy than the recommended solution of constantly massaging your skin. The only effort required is smoothing the mask over your belly, then you can sit back and relax.
It’s always fun to try a new beauty product, especially one as cute and easy as this belly mask. Just keep in mind that it’s unreviewed on the Hatch Mama website, so the jury is still technically out.
