Zuraida Jardine on beauty and motherhood

Friday, 22 November 2013

With baby on board things seem to change – one of them being your usual beauty routine. We asked one famous mom, Zuraida Jardine, to let us in on hers.

Zuraida Jardine

Q. How old are your kids and what are their names?
A. I have a daughter Zaria who is 4 years old and a son, Shia, who is 2 and a half.

Q. During your pregnancy, what were the four beauty products you couldn’t live without?
A. I used Bio-Oil on my tummy daily to moisturise my expanding belly and body. Some lip gloss to make me feel pretty, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Balm, and La Mer Hand Cream for my hands. I found that I lost moisture when I was pregnant.

Q. What beauty product made your life easier while pregnant?
A. Davines Leave-In-Conditioner, to moisture my locks as I didn’t have the energy and flexibility to always blow-dry my long hair.

Q. What scent/fragrance did you wear while you were pregnant?
A. Gardenia by Isabey.

Q. Which products do you use on your kids (that they love)?
A. I love the Pure Beginnings range, and so do they, and it’s proudly local!

Q. How did you keep fit with baby on board?
A. I made exercise a priority and still do. When I feel good, I am a better mom, and exercise is my feel good secret. I do a combination of cardio and weights with GetFit and recently started doing Anti-Gravity Yoga, which I love.

Q. Word of advice for expectant mothers?
A. You can try to school yourself by reading tons of books before baby arrives, but it all goes out the window as each child and parent is unique. You will be highly impressed by your intuition when you have your baby, trust that it’s always right. And it’s true when they say they grow up too quickly! So be a present parent, and have fun on the journey.

    Her points are so true I had a baby two months ago. It’s important to continue with beauty regime now more than ever. I’ve shed off baby weight, take good care of hair and skin.
