India, 2018: Amidst settling into a new schedule, it is important for mothers to take care of their body and skin. Dr. Prathibha, Ayurveda Expert – R &D, The Himalaya Drug Company, says, “The moment your bundle of joy is in your arms, you tend to overlook your needs and concentrate only on your child. However, just like your baby, your body too needs extra care and attention. Since your body goes through a lot of hormonal changes during pregnancy, it is essential to take the best care of yourself.”

“Moisturize, Massage and Manage – these are the three ways you can keep yourself rejuvenated, especially during and after pregnancy. These three simple steps will help relax your senses during pregnancy and keep you healthy and happy,” adds Dr. Prathibha.

Often, pregnant women use readily available body lotions to soothe rashes. Instead, choose an anti-rash cream specially formulated for expectant mothers that has ingredients like Yashada Bhasma, Aloe Vera, Almond Oil, and Manjistha, which will protect the skin and soothe rashes, thus reducing itchiness. When you buy a body butter, look for ingredients like Jasmine, Lavender, Rose, and Cocoa Butter. Since the first contact with your baby after she is born is through your skin, it is imperative to take care of your skin during pregnancy. Regular moisturizing also helps prevent stretch marks. A light body massage can help you relax, ease sore spots, and improve blood circulation. You can use a massage oil that strengthens your muscles and joints as well as soothes and moisturizes your skin, or a fragrant one that makes you feel fresh and rejuvenated.
