Can you tell us a little about the product you have entered into the awards, and why you think it is suitably pampering?
Mother's Balm is an incredible 100% organic wonder balm offering a multitude of uses and has been clinically proven to firm skin and increase elasticity. This fragrance-free moisturising blend, packed full of nourishing oils is rich in vitamins A and E, as well as essential fatty acids, to maintain the skin’s elasticity, helping to prevent stretch marks, and soothes the discomfort that can accompany expanding skin. When the body is expanding rapidly due to pregnancy, it is beneficial to use oils topically to help increase the amount of nutrients in the skin that will aid in the formation of new tissue.
The generously sized 120g jar will keep your skin nourished and moisturised from head to toe throughout and post pregnancy and can even be used on the most sensitive of babies skin.
Why do you think it stands out among the plethora of pampering products available?
Packed in our iconic blue glass jars, not only is it stylish, but the blue glass also serves a purpose by filtering out UVA and UVB rays so we do not need to add preservatives.
Clinically proven to firm skin and increase elasticity with 93% of users saying their skin felt more hydrated and 83% saying their skin felt smoother and more toned.
Preservative and fragrance free. 100% organic.
Why do you think it is important for mums-to-be and new mums to take the time to pamper themselves?
As a new mum, it’s easy to feel as if you’re no longer in control of your time. Days can go by without a moment of rest, and your commitment to be the best parent you can be means you might be dedicating all of your time to your children. Taking time to pamper yourself can sometimes seem like an overwhelming thing but there are lots of quick and easy ways to take care of, and pamper, yourself on a regular basis. Whether you are moisturising head to toe with Mother’s Balm after a bath in the evening once your child has gone to bed, or giving yourself a five minute hand massage using a nourishing hand cream, making time to look after yourself will help you feel better about yourself.
Your body will never go through such a period of change, emotionally and physically so it is important to take time out and look after your body and mind with skincare to nourish the body and calm the mind with their aroma therapeutic benefits.
Can you give us top tips for a mum-to-be for the best pregnancy safe ways to feel pampered?
Look for products which are certified organic to ensure that there are not any harmful ingredients and to ensure you are feeding your skin with the best ingredients nature has to offer.
It is just as important to feed your skin from within by eating well and drinking plenty of water. Incorporating superfoods and supplements into your diet is a really simple way to boost health and vitality.
What is the secret to glowing skin?
At Neal’s Yard Remedies we very much believe in inner and outer beauty, and endorse feeding your skin from within as well topically. Feeding your skin with organic, nutrient rich ingredients that can be found in our Super Nutrient Pregnancy Supplements and Superfoods will have you glowing inside out.
