If you haven’t already dived into natural care products, pregnancy will likely lead you this way.
I know first hand how those two little lines can change your outlook on life – from the big stuff all the way down to your personal care choices, like which lip balm you use. And it’s those personal care choices that I want to talk about today. So here’s our rundown on all natural skin care for new moms.
The skin is your body’s largest organ
As the body’s largest organ, it’s important to know what we’re putting on our skin. After all, what we put on it gets absorbed by it. So now more than ever, you’re likely wanting to avoid things like parabens, sulfates and other harsh chemicals.
But at the same time, your skin’s needs are changing with your hormones and the growth of that beautiful belly. Trying to find effective, natural products that combat excess oils, moisturize, and help prevent stretch marks, while reading ingredient lists can become overwhelming.
If you’re on the hunt for truly clean products that can be used from bump to baby and beyond, ours can do just that.
All Natural Skin Care for New Moms: Pregnancy & Postpartum
If pregnancy hormones are causing your skin to act up, our true natural skin gel can help. Formulated with aloe vera, tea tree, witch hazel, rosemary and vitamin E, it can be used from head to toe to nourish and rejuvenate skin.
Use it to help clear up excess oil, for eczema flare-ups, and other skin irritations, as well as to help combat stretch marks.
But that’s not all. Keep this gel on hand for baby’s arrival as well.
For those of you planning to breast feed, the gel is quite soothing for sore or cracked nipples. And since it is fast absorbing, you don’t need to worry about residue.
Effective and gentle, it’ll also come in handy to help treat baby’s cradle cap. Simply apply a dime-sized amount a few times a day.
Natural Skin Care for Baby
Baby’s delicate skin is so soft and pure, but can easily be irritated, which is why you’ll want products that are soothing and gentle. Especially once the skin starts to flake (it’s normal for newborns!).
Look for products with skin-calming ingredients, like aloe vera and chamomile. For extra sensitive skin, avoid any fragrant ingredients. But most babies’ skin will tolerate Lavender quite well and the aroma is nice and calming for those bed time baths.
Our baby shampoo and wash blends are free from parabens, sulfates, harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients. They’re also tear-free, hypo-allergenic and dermatologically tested.
For issues such as diaper rash, eczema and dry skin, a true natural baby balm will be a must. You’re going to want to bring it with you everywhere (or maybe just get two – one for home and one for the diaper bag). A baby balm will create a barrier between baby’s skin and the elements or their diaper, helping prevent diaper rash and skin irritations.
The benefits of natural personal care products don’t end once baby isn’t a baby anymore. They’re better for your skin and the environment, providing they’re sustainably sourced. At Nature’s Aid we’re committed to providing high quality, gentle, truly natural products the whole family can use – from babies to kids to grown ups and pets.
