According to health experts, for healthy skin, the first step is to adopt a pregnancy-safe skin care routine.

“Your old skin care routine might not be suitable anymore because of the changes your skin undergoes during pregnancy. Most women are bound to experience skin changes likes dry and itchy skin, rashes, acne, skin redness and stretch marks,” said Subhashini, an ayurveda expert with The Himalaya Drug Company.

“With your skin being the most delicate during this phase, what you need is a skin care routine that is safe. This and a good massage and regular moisturisation are the easy ways that can help manage common skin concerns,” Subhashini added.

Subhashini also shared a few tips for your daily skin care routine: Indulge in a light massage and moisturise in the morning.

“Massage helps improve blood circulation and manage dry skin. It also helps relieve pregnancy pain and stress and helps rejuvenate your skin. Indulging in a massage every day, either before bed or bath with an oil infused with Aloe Vera and Ashvagandha, helps take good care of your skin,” Subhashini said.

“Moisturising your skin in the morning will help keep your skin nourished throughout the day. It is advisable to use a body butter cream that is safe and enriched with natural ingredients like Cocoa Butter and Glycerin,” she said.

Dear parents, kindly take note. Researchers have found that going to bed early and following a consistent bedtime routine may help reduce children’s risk of becoming overweight or obese.

“While we know it can be hard to get children to bed early, and at consistent times both on weekdays and at weekends, it might help parents or carers to know that establishing consistent and early bedtime may reduce the risk that their child will be overweight or obese,” said study lead author Yaqoot Fatima from the University of Queensland and James Cook University in Australia.

For the findings, published in the journal Acta Paediatrica, the research team wanted to explore sleep patterns in indigenous Australian children and assess the role of sleep timing in longitudinal changes in body mass index (BMI).In the study of 1,258 Indigenous Australian children were picked with an average age of 6 years.

Latent profile analysis was conducted with the Australian Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children (LSIC) cohort data, to determine distinct patterns of bed and wake timing, taking account of weekday sleep duration, weekday and weekend bedtimes, and weekday wake times.

Multilevel models with a random intercept were used to investigate the role of baseline sleep pattern in predicting longitudinal changes in BMI.
