A very easy and natural way to deal with this is Castor Oil. Start applying this as early as your first trimester and see the difference.
2. Ageing Lines
Each delivery add a couple of years to your age lines. Don’t look at your face and fret about those lines because this will only help to add more lines. Look in the mirror and proudly say ” I am a proud mother and I am still beautiful.” Most mothers refrain from using any anti ageing creams or packs since we are not sure about the contents and whether they are detrimental to our baby. And, doing any home remedy is like a never ending desire which is never fulfilled.
Olive oil is my favourite buddy when it comes to beauty care. Let it be for thick eye lashes, dandruff, dry skin, olive oil serves the best. It is an excellent anti ageing agent too. Massage your face and neck daily with olive oil just before shower and see the magic. Another magical remedy is using egg white mask. Doesn’t your baby sleep for at least half n hour. Then don’t waste time. Rush to your kitchen, take an egg separate the yolk and apply the albumen lavishly in your face and neck. Do this once or twice a week as per your free hours. Trust me, you will love the new YOU.
Ps: Don’t discard the yolk.
3. Frizzy Hair
Pregnancy oozes out the moisture completely from your hair. Except some lucky few, everyone else suffers from hair loss and frizzy hair. We assort to messy bun as a temporary solution for this issue till we can manage some time for a hair spa.
You don’t have to think more. Don’t you have the olive oil which is left over after applying to your face? Just give a massage to your scalp. Haven’t you kept aside the egg yolk? Add one more egg to it. Apply it to your hair. Now stop making faces and do it. After about 20 minutes wash your hair with a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner. You will never be able to take your hands off your silky smooth hair.
4. Dark Circles
Those sleepless nights gift you with unrelenting dark circles and sagging eyes. Let’s take a break from olive oil this time. Take some almond oil and massage around your dark circles before going to bed. Wash it off the next morning. Continue doing this for about a month. You can feel the difference yourself.
5. Flabby Abs
Those cute tiny belly buttons, that taut abs; haven’t you reminisced your pre pregnancy body like your ex-boyfriend whom you still love? While you know that crunches are the best remedy for cutting down abdominal fat, you will never be able to find time, nor energy for that matter.
To start with the best remedy for your flabby abs is abdominal breathing exercise. Lie on your back and keep your one hand on your upper chest and other beneath the rib cage. Inhale slowly. Make sure that only the hand on your ribcage moves. This way you can get to know if you are using the right technique. Inhale to the full capacity of your stomach. Then slowly exhale with your lips pursed. You should feel the pressure on your stomach muscles. Repeat this exercise 3-4 times a day for 5 to 10 minutes.
These are all stopgap remedies. These cannot be replaced with the parlour treatment. But one thing I can assure, if you are not a parlour addict, you will find these remedies the best choices. The most important part is loving yourself and being proud to be a mother.
