Must Have for Celeb Mommies

In the wake of the recent Hollywood baby-boom, the red-carpet at the upcoming Oscars will undeniably be flooded with a plethora of baby bumps. Pregnant celebs such as Kate Hudson, Victoria Beckham, Natalie Portman, Selma Blair and the newly pregnant Jessica Alba are sure to get plenty of notice for their maternity style. And how will they perfect their looks? With none other than celebrity skincare expert Mama Mio, of course!


While expecting Honor in 2008, Jessica Alba embraced her pregnant physique and notably stellar style by highlighting her assets on the red carpet. We know she’ll do the same this time around by using her favorite Mama Mio product: Boob Tube Bust and Neck Firmer ($45; www.mamamio.com). This crinkle-fighting formula promotes firmer, fitter, glowing, dewy, youthful skin from the neck down, a must when preparing for a revealing neckline on the red carpet. CoQ10 helps defy gravity while Omega 3, 6 and 9 keep your neck and décolleté looking firm and plump. Milk Thistle, Evening Primrose Oil and Sweet Almond Oil maintain moisture for healthy, brilliant skin.

The amazingly beautiful Selma Blair showed off her maternity glow at the recent Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. You too can achieve a soft sheen like Selma’s by using her favorite Mama Mio product: O-Mega™ Body Oil ($35; www.mamamio.com) Free of carriers and emollients, this formula is 100% replenishing moisture. Truly superfood for the skin, Mama Mio’s magic mix of natural Argan, Safflower, Sweet Almond and Jojoba oils delivers much-needed Omegas 3, 6 and 9 to nourish and elasticize the skin for a noticeable and immediate difference. Thirsty skin drinks up the quenching blend instantly as it quickly sinks in, locks in moisture and throws away the key.

The always fashionable Victoria Beckham never lets her pregnancies get in the way of style! Pregnant with her fourth child, the Mama Mio Skincare fan was recently spotted in Heathrow wearing her signature stilettos. At this year’s Oscars, other pregnant celebs can also brave the red carpet in heels with the help of Mama Mio Lucky Legs ($19; www.mamamio.com). Developed to relieve legs and feet when exhausted, swollen, heavy, and in need of intense refreshment, this mini-spa treatment glides on to instantly cool and ease weary limbs—from knees to tippy toes. Lucky Legs is formulated with V-Tonic, a blend of safe, essential oils handpicked to relieve pain and lighten heavy legs with a tingly cool sensation. 80% of women tested reported immediate relief! Menthol and Spearmint cool and refresh as Aloe Vera and Chamomile calm and Yarrow helps skin tone.
