Skin undergoes a lot of changes during and after pregnancy. One of the major concerns is an itchy skin. But, we have found an amazing solution. Here is how to treat it!
One of the major skin problems during and after pregnancy is the skin rash. I have had a lot of trouble with the itchy skin, especially around my belly and thigh area due to the stretching of my skin. For most mommies, post-pregnancy rashes can become an issue to deal with for the rest of their lives. Those pregnancy hormones wreak havoc on skin during and after pregnancy. In my case, these rashes erupted due to all the sweating during the last trimester (couples with the soaring high temperature) and rubbing together of folded skin on almost regular basis due to all the light-walking I would do on my gynecologist’s recommendation. What actually happened was that due to the stretching of my skin (in order to accommodate the weight of my baby in the womb) along with the sweating and mild-exercise, the rashes began to aggravate and they started itching because of the skin germs. The deeper the folds are, the more likely the chances of a rash. Post-delivery, with all the letdown and moisture in the air – the rashes developed under the breasts as well!
So, how did I take care of my itchy skin before and after pregnancy?
Most of us either make peace with the marks and rashes thinking it’s a gift from god and most others rely on cosmetic treatments to lighten the marks and treat those itchy rashes. However, most effective and safe procedures involve home remedies or mild creams which are made of natural ingredients. One day while sitting at my doctor’s clinic I overheard a mother talking all good things about an anti-rash cream she just recently got hold of. Later, I asked her about it in person and she handed over a 50-gram tube of Himalaya FOR MOMS Anti-Rash Cream. As soon as I was home, I applied a bit of it on my rashes and went out for my regular jog. And you won’t believe what just happened. My itchy skin wasn’t irritated as it typically would otherwise. This herbal formulation effectively reduced itching and rashes, and gently comforted my skin. The best part about this cream is that it can also treat other dermal cuts and scratches which cause minor itching.
Besides, I am a huge fan of Lavender aroma. The mild fragrance calmed my skin (and soul) distracting my mind from almost everything, putting me at ease!
The key ingredients such as Yashad Bhasma, aloe vera, almond oil and Manjishtha are helpful in locking (as well as maintaining) moisture of the skin. The antiseptic and astringent properties ensure no fungal or bacterial infections develop. The cream is packed with vitamins which nourishes the skin and makes it soft and supple. Manjishtha with its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties is known to provide blemish-free, clear skin.
So, all in all, I must say that it’s a win-win situation for mommies. They have a solution to treat postpartum skin rashes, itchy scars, and other dermal cuts/ scratches. Priced at Rs. 75 and 150 for a 20 and 50-gram pack respectively, you can easily purchase the product online by clicking here.
