Fun Fact: Did you know that more than 300,000 kids are born each day!
Pregnancy truly is the most memorable time in any woman life, at the same time this period can be stressful and emotional. Majority of women in general are unhappy with their body and during pregnancy with the weight gain and itchy skin they can be even more hard on themselves. Bio-Oil hosted the #YummiliciousWalk, where in 12 proud mothers-to-be, sashayed the ramp with model, Carol Gracias and popular TV actress, Shveta Salve, on the occasion of Mother’s Day. The whole idea of this event was for mothers-to-be to let go of their inhibitions and celebrate this beautiful phase of motherhood.
Bio-Oil as a brand is known for its specialist skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is also effective for aging and dehydrated skin. Even though I am not pregnant I have been using Bio-Oil on my face and legs for about 8 months now as I have a lot of dark spots on my skin and it has improved not just the over all texture of my skin but also faded away some old scars.
The event started with 12 gorgeous yummy mummies taking over the ramp along with soon to be mothers, Carol Gracias and Shveta Salve. Post the ramp show celebrity gynaecologist Dr. Kiran Coelho and dermatologist Dr. Rashmi Shetty joined the stage to share some knowledge as to how the pregnancy woos can be fixed with a healthy lifestyle and light exercise. “A major worry that every pregnant woman has is, whether the stretch marks are ever going to go. The answer for which is try to minimize stretch marks during pregnancy by regularly applying moisturizers and oils such as Bio Oil, which contain Vitamin E, Lavender, Calendula and Rosemary,” Dr Rashmi Shetty further added. She emphasized on the need for mothers to take as much time as they require, post giving birth, to get back to exercising.
Shveta Salve said, “It has been heart-warming to share the stage with such confident and glowing Yummy Mummies. Pregnancy is a wonderful journey that should be cherished and rejoiced. Here’s wishing all the mothers-to-be a Happy Mother’s Day.”
Excited to be around so many Yummy Mummies, Carol Gracias stated, “I think Bio Oil has created a great platform for all expecting mothers to shed their inhibitions. I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to choreograph the walk with all these gorgeous women! Joining these lovely mothers has been an over-whelming experience. So, all you Yummy Mummies out there go ahead and flaunt your cute baby bumps!”
#YummyMummy is a great initiative by Bio-Oil as it encourages women to come out of their shell and celebrate their pregnancy!
