Incorporate these Self-Care Tips into Your Lifestyle
Upgrade your Skincare Routine
There is no doubt about it, skincare is self-care. We don’t see better time than pregnancy to upgrade your skincare routine.
It's simple to understand why clean beauty is having its moment. Many personal care products include harmful chemicals, parabens, and other potentially dangerous ingredients. Infact, almost half of women in the US are now looking to switch to all-natural skincare routines. Pregnancy is probably the best time to evaluate your skincare regimen and find new products that are safe and non-toxic.
Every pregnancy is different. You need an updated routine that works for your skin! The lesser the products, the better your skin will feel. But that doesn’t mean you should compromise on efficiency.
Try the Serum Set that includes highest quality Rosehip Seed Oil in both the AM and PM Routine. This minimal serum set helps you protect your skin in the day and heal suring the night, making it ideal for pregnant and new mothers. Its simple, effective, and yet luxurious in experience; self-care at its best.
Nourish Your Body
Because you're eating for two, maintaining a steady appetite during the day is critical to a good self-care regimen. Food is medicine, especially when it comes to pregnancy self-care. You must make the proper choices that can improve your mood, provide essential nutrients, and help your baby thrive.
The best hack to ensure you're getting in your nutrients - Fill half of your plate with fruits and veggies at each meal. The more colourful, the better! Aim to "eat the rainbow" as often as possible.
A healthy, balanced diet is essential for glowing skin throughout pregnancy. Consume plenty of fresh fruits, veggies, and whole grains to obtain the vitamins and minerals your skin needs. Omega-3 fatty acids, which may be found in fish, nuts, and seeds, aid to keep skin moisturised and prevent inflammation.
Drink plenty of water every day to stay hydrated. To avoid skin problems, limit your intake of sugary and processed meals. A well-balanced diet will help your baby's growth as well as your skin's attractiveness.
Easy Smoothie Recipe
Here’s a simple smoothie recipe that help you get your daily nutrient intake -
- 1 cup spinach (packed with antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and beta-carotene)
- 1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries - high in antioxidants)
- 1/2 avocado (rich in healthy fats and vitamin E)
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (contains probiotics and protein)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds (excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids)
- 1 tablespoon raw honey (natural antibacterial properties)
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)
- Blend all the ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Give Yourself Some Grace
To say that life can be stressful these days is an understatement. Setting boundaries and saying no is not something to be guilty about. Anything that doesn't benefit you is no longer a priority. Allow yourself to take a time out whenever you need it. There are no questions!
Self-care is essential, as is using products that are appropriate for your changing skin needs. Taking it one step at a time ensures that your pregnancy self-care experience is joyful and relaxing.
Your body is working extra to care for the small human within. Taking plenty of time to meditate, rest, or read — whatever you need to do to replenish your batteries. Listening to your body is true self-care. There is literally no better time to listen to your body than pregnancy. So if you need a midday sleep, now is the time to take one.
Pamper and Relax
Pregnancy is that one phase in life where no amount of pampering is enough! You’re giving birth to life - you deserve to comfortable and taken care of. We often find a relaxing nighttime pampering session does wonders on sleep and mood.
An incredible way to pamper yourself is by doing regular prenatal massages. Now, we dont mean you need to go to a spa every other day! Instead try a relaxing self massage.
Gentle massage techniques can alleviate muscle tension and pain, easing common pregnancy discomforts like backaches and leg cramps. Improved blood circulation helps in reducing swelling and enhances the delivery of nutrients to the fetus.
Massage oils for self-care are a great way to kickstart your prenatal care and hit two birds with one stone! Empress Naturals Calming and Circulation Massage Oils are great to alternate between. Calming is formulated to help aid your sleep quality while Revival releases tension and improves circulation. Add a Kansa Wand to this routine and it will truly improve circulation two-fold!
A few moments of peace in an otherwise hectic lifestyle can do wonders. Self-care begins within but going outdoors in an environment setting multiplies it tenfold. Spending time in nature's embrace can help decrease cortisol levels and relax your mind during and after pregnancy.
Whether you merely stroll around the block or visit a nearby quiet park, simply breathing fresh air and being around trees offers therapeutic, stress-relieving properties. You can also mix meditation, exercise, and time outside to elevate this self-care experience.
Try online meditation apps like Headspace that curate meditations based on your requirements.
All you need are some comfy shoes and some fresh air. Your body and mind — will be grateful.
