Pregnancy is a phase when you need to celebrate and enjoy every change in your body. Many questions may still ponder in your mind about what to avoid and what not to. But above all these, you need to show off your pregnancy bump with a glowing skin and a healthy lifestyle.

Extra care needs to be taken when reconsidering your skincare routine to maintain healthy and beautiful skin during and post pregnancy. The simple solution to sustain natural glow of your skin is to protect your skin with natural lotions, cream, and massage oils.

Follow these tips for a beautiful and glowing skin:

Moisturize your dry and itchy skin: You need to moisturize your skin at all times especially at this time when the body stretches to make way for the little one. Your skin needs to be soothed and comforted. Try to use a soothing body butter that contains rich cocoa butter to smoothen extra dry skin and provide long-lasting deep moisturisation. This can help in intense hydration and moisturization of the skin.

Rashes and Skin Itches: Well, this is common during pregnancy.  Itchy and pregnancy rashes appear along with the stretching of the skin. The rashes are common on abdomen and legs, feet, arms and chest. Since during pregnancy, women sweat more and this may contribute to pregnancy rashes. Always use an anti-rash cream especially infused with the power of herbs that will go a long way to soothe the itching skin and provide moisture, making for a more comfortable pregnancy.

Body Massage: Postpartum massage is very beneficial and offers relief from pain and fatigue other than restoring strength. Not only does it helps improve blood circulation and tones and relaxes muscles but also helps relieve stress and promotes sleep. Try a massage oil with a delightfully delicate Lavender fragrance containing a soothing blend of sesame oil, winter cherry, and country mallow that can be great in healing and relaxing. 

Sore nipples: Another concern is sore cracked and bleeding nipples as a result of improper breastfeeding. It is believed that two in ten mothers have sore and cracked nipples. Apart from the severe pain, sore and cracked nipples affect milk production too, since there is not enough suckling. Use a nipple cream that contains Kokum butter, a natural healer that helps deeply moisturize and heal nipples, and virgin coconut oil which smoothens, cools and protects nipple from cracks and fissures.
