“When you are pregnant, or have just given birth, what you eat is just as important to your skin as what you apply,” says expectant mum and beauty expert Bronwyn Conroy (right) who has teamed up with Udo’s Oil Nutritional Therapist Sarah Brereton to offer beauty and nutritional advice to new mums and mums-to-be. “I met Sarah soon after I became pregnant. I was telling her how my skin had suddenly changed as had my hair and nails. She recommended I boost my intake of omega 3 and omega 6 and suggested other changes to my diet. Within weeks, I could feel and see the positive impact,” Bronwyn said. Their next course is on August 13 in The Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School, Blackrock and costs €20.
