Middle Eastern beauty brand Shiffa has all the makings of your new favorite product range. Developed by medical doctor Lamees Hamdan, who later specialized in dermatology, Shiffa is many things.
In Arabic, Shiffa means “to heal” or “healing”. It’s, natural, organic, inspired by ideals from the East and the West and interwoven with principles of Indian Ayurveda.
The Pregnancy Oil Kim K Swears By
Dr. Hamdan’s pregnancy is the genesis of Shiffa – she wanted 100% natural beauty products that didn’t compromise on results. Like many pregnant women she feared stretch marks, and this inspired the Shiffa Pregnancy Body Oil – a beautiful blend of oils including mandarin orange, chamomile, evening primrose and apricot kernel. So divine is this feather-light oil that Kim Kardashian turned to it daily during her pregnancy with Saint West.
“I was obsessed with putting lots of lotion, and this pregnancy body oil on a few times a day,” she wrote on her pregnancy diaries 5 months in.
Eating for two or not, this hard working oil will do wonders for your skin. The uplifting formula promotes feelings of wellbeing and a restful night’s sleep as well as moisturizing and conditioning the skin – particularly on the bust, hips and stomach.
