FULL-TIME MUM & CO-FOUNDER OF IN MY SHOES
Every woman’s journey to motherhood is beautiful and unique. With this in mind, Clarins and Love, Bonito wants to celebrate each precious maternity milestone with all of you through the most challenging yet heartwarming of moments — as your body gets ready to bring forth new life and love.
Hi! I’m Dipna, I’m a retired national runner. I'm a full-time mum who coaches and runs In My Shoes (a social movement I co-founded).
Plan ahead and be kind to yourself and schedule intentional rest, even if it’s just 10 minutes between Zoom calls. I remember always packing my day full to the brim because I felt that I needed to get as much done as possible before baby was out!

Have an idea of what you want your experience to be, but be flexible because you never know! And have something to look forward to post-labour (for me it was bubble tea!)
Don’t compare. Take things slow. Your new family is special and perfect in its own way.
Pigmentation — wear sunscreen daily. Even indoors. And my skin was extra dry so I moisturised extra.
Sunscreen, moisturiser, body oil (layered on top of moisturiser), and concealer!
