When winter arrives, life gets even busier for mothers. Children to be dressed in warm clothes, seasonal infections to keep away, hot treats to cook in the kitchen…Amidst all this rush, a majority of mothers forget to attend to one very important thing for themselves. Don’t believe us?

This winter, we want to treat moms to a very special gift, something to make them feel pampered and revive something that gets lost amidst the chaos of everyday chores.

We spoke to many mothers on World Of Moms to find out what they think gets the most neglected in their day-to-day life. One of the main things that came up is, surprisingly, skin care!

Fellow Moms Tell Us: 7 Reasons Mothers Are Prone to Skin Troubles

Digging deeper, we asked moms to share what they think are the reasons behind this neglect toward skincare in mothers.Turns out, the problem starts right in the pregnancy days. During pregnancy, your body undergoes several hormonal changes.While some of these have uncomfortable side effects, such as morning sickness and nausea, others have very welcome results – glowing skin and strong hair!When we say a mom-to-be is glowing, it is not just a casual compliment but actually true.However, the bubble bursts after delivery.

Post-delivery, as the hormonal surge subsides and the body tries to slowly recover from the pressure of childbirth, skin usually goes for a toss.

Many mothers experience dull skin after delivery as well as problems like dryness, patchiness and acne. Here are the main reasons moms tend to ignore skin care – straight from the horse’s mouth:

  1. Pregnancy skin is already glowing – why do anything special?
  2. Unwillingness to use topical creams, lotions, etc., during pregnancy
  3. Post-partum stress and fatigue
  4. Lack of time to focus on oneself
  5. Doubtful about using any skincare products as a new mom, fearing it might affect the breastfeeding baby
  6. Belief that skin changes after baby are permanent
  7. Unavailability of natural and toxin-free products for skincare

These reasons tend to pre-dispose moms to not taking enough care of their skin. As a result, many women struggle with skin problems as early as in their 30s.

The problems only get aggravated when winter arrives.

Expert Advice on Essential Skin Care for Pregnant & New Moms

  • Do not ignore skincare during pregnancy. During the winter months, you might struggle with dryness and itchiness, especially in the abdominal area. Stick to organic and natural skincare products such as The Moms Co.’s Natural Body Butter,
  • Natural Stretch Oil, Natural Body Wash and Natural Foot Cream. These products are Natural, certified toxin-free and clinically tested.

Keep in mind that your skin is more sensitive while pregnant, therefore some products may cause skin irritations, or you may get burnt more easily.

You can indulge yourself at a spa, get a massage, a facial, get a manicure or pedicure.

There are certain things, though, that you should avoid while visiting a spa – saunas, steam rooms, tanning beds, hot springs, whirlpools, hot tubs and spa baths.

  • Use an effective stretch oil/cream to enhance your skin’s elasticity during pregnancy. This will reduce your risk of developing stretch marks. The Moms Co. Natural Body Stretch Oil is a good option and can be safely used on the belly, hips and breasts.
  • Remember to moisturise your skin in the post-partum stage with a natural body butter. Use a relaxing foot cream to give relief to tired and swollen feet. This will also alleviate the problem of cracked heels, a common winter skin concern.
  • Stick to lukewarm showers as far as possible. Hot showers may feel wonderful in the winter but they can aggravate skin dryness.
  • Eat a balanced, wholesome and natural diet that’s rich in vitamins and minerals. Some good foods for new mom skin care are strawberries, prunes and apples. Do not miss out on hydration even though you may not feel as thirsty in the winter.
