What is pregnancy skin care? It is caring for your skin, while you nurture a little life growing inside you. Our favourite ‘Veere Di Wedding’ actress, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, earlier got us hooked to her #everydayphenomenal wedding to Anand Ahuja. Now, as a mom-to-be, she’s inspiring us all to take a step towards a wellness-infused pregnancy skincare routine.
“I've never loved, embraced and cared for my body and wellness more than ever before. I'm overlooking everything right from what I eat to what I apply to my skin because if you want to carry another life within you, you have to respect your own” - Sonam Kapoor Ahuja said in an interview with Vogue.
Indulging in natural skin care during pregnancy can be the most comforting experience you can give yourself. Gentle, non-toxic, chemical-free, and artificial fragrance-free pregnancy skin care products should ideally make it to your list. And we are here to introduce you to some of the best options that are worth trying.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s Pregnancy Skin Care
Here’s how the fashion icon, interior design connoisseur, and actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja practises her skin care during pregnancy.
Vitamin C Moisturiser:Looking for the best moisturiser for pregnancy? A vitamin C-infused natural lotion is your best bet. In a post on social media, she shares how vitamin C is the most effective skin care ingredient. “It gives you glowing skin in no time,” she says in an interview with Vogue!
Coco Soul’s Organic Body Lotion is a great choice, which is enriched with vitamin C-loaded ayurvedic herb, welmi. This is coupled with the revered traditional beauty ingredient of sandalwood, and goodness of organic virgin coconut oil. The nourishing lotion is also 100% vegan, and certified by Made Safe.
Cleansing Balm:In a conversation with Vogue, the bubbly Sonam Kapoor Ahuja stresses on the importance of having a ‘simple yet effective’ skin care regimen. Her days begin with a serum, and lip tint. At night, she makes sure a cleansing makeup remover is used to remove the sunblock and moisturiser off her skin before she goes to sleep.
For this, Coco Soul offers the perfect, multi-tasking cleansing Melt-in Balm that gently swipes off the layer of makeup, or sunblock, or impurities. It is made with 100% pure coconut, and infused with the goodness of virgin coconut oil, which makes you feel and smell divine!
Body Butter:Her strong rule of ‘do not go to sleep without cleaning your face’ is followed by a step of hydration. In the interview with Vogue, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja shared how a heavy moisturiser for the face and neck are her go-to pregnancy essentials. Take care of your face with a natural moisturising cream, that gently nourishes your face. To intensely nourish the neck, Coco Soul gives you a shea butter Body Butter, with a consistency that deeply moisturises your skin like your favourite celebrity suggests!
Lip Balm:Last but not the least, caring for the lips is of utmost importance to Sonam Kapoor Ahuja. In the same interview mentioned earlier, she shares how a lip tint is a part of her AM routine. She highlights the importance of the safety and efficacy of skincare products used during pregnancy, and how not all products are safe to use on a mother’s skin.
So, what’s the best solution in this case? Nature-derived virgin coconut based oil for the lips is what Coco Soul recommends. It is extracted from raw coconuts, found in the southern Indian farms. Virgin King Coconut Based Oil for Skin from Coco Soul is 100% organic, prepared carefully in a no-heat process, retaining all essential minerals and nutrients needed for a mommy-to-be, ensuring her skin’s safety.
