Ever wondered why pregnant women seem to glow without even trying? Yes, ‘pregnancy glow’ is very real and is caused due to an increase in blood flow to the skin and boost of hormones, estrogen and progesterone. And not just a glowing complexion, pregnancy can also make your face and lips look fuller. This is true for most women in various stages of maternity and celeb moms-to-be are no different. From a radiant Anushka Sharma to a fresh skinned Emily Ratajkowski beaming on magazine covers with her bump — this is a quick appreciation post for the glow flaunted by these celebrities; plus a few skincare tips from their Insta feed!

Anushka Sharma’s pregnancy announcement broke the internet in August 2020. Since then, the actress has been sharing her journey, which looks intimate with just the fam, festivities and getting lots of sun at the pool. Yep, Anushka’s secret to lovely maternity skin seems to be lots of love, laughter and sunny selfies in adorable dungarees. We love it!

Like Kareena Kapoor Khan didn’t have gorgeous skin, to begin with, her pregnancy has added even more of the rosy glow we’ve come to associate her with. She had a simple approach towards skincare during quarantine — homemade masking sessions done with sister Karisma Kapoor over Zoom calls.
3. Emily Ratajkowski

Emily Ratajkowski is out here slaying her pregnancy like she does everything else! This was promoting her swimwear line with her adorable baby bump; we honestly did not expect anything less from a supermodel working mom. And in-between editorial features and sun-bathing posts, she also shared a quick skincare tip — brightening sheet masks. This makes sense because a top complaint of maternity skin is hyperpigmentation, which can be avoided by using brightening ingredients like vitamin C and proper use of SPF!

Curly-haired beaut Pearle Maaney recently wowed audiences with her comic timing on screen in the Netflix original Ludo. Off-screen, she has been busy populating her Insta feed with gorgeous maternity fashion paired with sheer, radiant skin. Her secret? Relaxing and enjoying the fruits of her labour with a successful OTT debut!

When former teen icon Emma Roberts announced her pregnancy, 90s babies leapt with joy for this mommy-to-be. The gorgeous blonde seems to be living her best life while pregnant, chilling in backyard gardens in floral dresses and all. She has also made a point to mention eating right while pregnant; giving into cake cravings once in a while, causing absolutely no hindrance to her pregnancy glow.
