The specialist facial utilises products from Epionce, which only use botanical ingredients to help any future mums to relax and unwind at any stage of their pregnancy.

Marketed specifically as paraben, fragrance & gluten free, the products include antioxidants to give you a healthy glowing skin – something Olivia certainly had as she glowed radiantly in her photos.

Describing the process as “the most relaxing experience EVER”, Olivia seemed to be enjoying her time at the luxury centre, with the fresh faced star looking well and truly rested after the relaxing experience.

Easily one of the biggest romantic success stories to come out of ITV’s hit dating show Love Island, Olivia and Alex are just weeks away from welcoming their first child together.

Appearing on the show’s second season back in 2016, the couple continued to date following their appearance on the show and have been together ever since they left the iconic villa – even going on to get married in 2018.

The latest facial is just one of the self care activities Olivia has indulged in as of late, with the star frequently sharing her beauty routines on social media, particularly when it comes to keeping her pregnancy skin in tip top shape.

“My holy grail for my face atm. Without fail I’m using the natural herbal cream from @botanicainternational every morning and night and also my @utanofficial every morning and night!” she wrote on Instagram Stories back in January.

“I’m prone to blackheads around my nose and breakouts but these work wonders together for me!” she added.
