International celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Miranda Kerr are big fans of the alkaline diet. It can bring in a “positive change” in people’s life, says an expert.

“Our bodies are naturally alkaline, but our eating and drinking habits and the stress we endure, creates acidity. This can stress the body and cause weight gain, lethargy, bloating, bad skin, concentration problems and all manner of other complaints,” said Ilona Wesle, an expert nutritionist.

“Our hardworking, long-hours culture is a contributing factor to acidity as well. Stress and tiredness can actually cause acidity in the body. Hence, eating a diet that combines both some acid and more alkaline – a 20/80 split, ideally – has endless benefits,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Wesle as saying.

Acidic food and drink items are a key cause. Check on your consumption of coffee, alcohol, processed foods, sugar, salt, dairy and too much red meat to keep acidity away.

* Symptoms of an acidic diet: Digestive problems, ulcers, dull hair and split ends, weak nails, dental problems, fatigue, headaches, low body temperature, nervousness and even depression as some of the major side effects.

* How to alkalise diet: Introduce a greater concentration of fruit and vegetables to your diet, especially broccoli, fennel, kale, beetroot, lemon, grapefruit and dates. Alkaline foods take the least effort for the body to digest, which frees up the body to do more important healing work. The benefits of eating alkaline are countless, but some of the best payoffs are: mental alertness, clear and springy skin, fewer colds and bugs, sleeping deeply, good digestion, stronger bones, deeper energy reserves, and sustainable weight loss.

It’s winter and during this season the cold air strips your skin of natural moisture, leaving it dull, dry, itchy and flaky.

According to the health experts, mothers must follow a good winter skincare regimen to keep their skin nourished and hydrated.

But as a new mom, you may not have the time as your little one might keep you on your toes.

With emergency nappy changing, elongated crying and night shifts, a new mom might feel overwhelmed with new changes around her and in her routine! When you are a new mommy then we are sure your skincare has already taken a backseat as it is natural that you struggle to keep up with your routine, the experts said.

“New and expectant moms need that extra bit of care, especially in this tender period of motherhood. Skincare regimen not only appeases one physically, but also has a calming effect emotionally. But, it is equally important to be mindful of the product choices we make,” said Dr. Subhashini N.S., Ayurveda Expert, The Himalaya Drug Company.

“It is suggested to choose products that are developed using natural ingredients and are free from any form of harsh chemicals to keep themselves and their little ones safe,” Subhashini said.

She shares quick skincare tips that every mom can easily remember and at the same time incorporate them in the everyday routine.

This season is all about maintaining the moisture of your skin, as it is crucial for keeping it hydrated. So, replace your regular cleanser with a gentle, hydrating cleanser, moisture-rich ingredients like virgin coconut oil, cocoa and mango butter, the doctor said.

According to Subhashini, opting for a body butter infused with the goodness of cocoa butter and glycerin helps soothe and hydrate the skin more effectively than lotions.

It further helps tackle dry and flaky skin, that most new and pregnant moms face.
