There’s nothing sweeter—or more delicate—than a baby’s skin. Expectant mothers and new parents can protect their little one by choosing safe, natural, and effective products for the baby and for themselves.
Thankfully, due to unparalleled selectiveness in ingredients and quality, ZENTS has an array of pregnancy safe skin care options and baby-friendly products. In fact, our products are a favorite for prenatal face and body treatments in spas worldwide.
Here are our favorite selections to suit mamas-to-be and bundles of joy alike, and how to use them:
For the Bearer of the Bump
Expectant mothers have so much to worry about: the foods they eat, vitamins they take, scheduling health care visits; and unfortunately, beauty and skin care products. This need for safe, yet effective, unscented body care is where our UNZENTED Collection originated. Products formulated without parabens, phthalates, sulfates and other harsh ingredients give pregnant mothers peace of mind AND pamper her.
Skin care during pregnancy is a whole new ball game. Introducing gentle ingredients derived from nature is the ideal place to begin. Shea butter and coconut oil both contain a host of vitamins and essential fatty acids to nourish the skin, and in turn reduce the appearance of stretch marks. ZENTS devotee, Kayla Beckmann Barnhart swears by the combination of UNZENTED Concreta and UNZENTED Lotion as part of her pregnancy safe skin care routine:
“Both my husband and I love the UNZENTED Concreta for our hands. I also used it on my belly in combination with the Lotion during pregnancy, and I made it out stretch mark free!”
For the Tiny One
Nothing is softer, yet more sensitive than baby’s skin, and the last thing we want to do is disrupt their delicate systems. Finding a universal skin care product that can target multiple concerns using natural, soothing ingredients is key. Our versatile, and ever reliable, UNZENTED Concreta balm is the best baby moisturizer for common baby skin conditions like cradle cap and eczema. The blend of coconut oil, shea butter, and flower essences are effective, yet incredibly gentle. New mom and ZENTS fan, Estelle Reff, shares how she’s introduced the Concreta into her family’s routine (and decor!):
“I discovered the UNZENTED Concreta through a friend and it instantly became a staple in our house. This all-natural little love balm is so versatile and is great for helping with my baby’s diaper rash or my dry skin. I will definitely be using it with my second on the way. Not to mention the packaging looks so pretty in the nursery and our bathroom.”
For New Parents
From the moment you become a new parent, you will quickly realize that constant contact between you and your newest family member is going to be the new normal. Skin care products can reach the baby through breastfeeding and during close snuggles. Having caregivers commit to choosing natural skin care solutions can help prevent irritation to the baby’s sensitive skin. Estelle shares how nothing comes between staying close in her family:
“As a mom, I am always looking for the perfect body care that is gentle enough for my kids but also feels like a treat for me to use too. This line is exactly that. From jumping in the shower together and using the Wash to sharing the creamy, gentle Lotions, I love the versatility for my whole family.”
Mixing self care with early parenthood is hard, but not impossible if you get creative. Try an UNZENTED Bath Truffle in the bath and climb in for a soak with your little one. Toddlers delight in the magical fizz effect, and mom can enjoy a guilt free soak in safe ingredients.
Try incorporating a little moisturizing and muscle relief into the family’s daily routine. A post-bath massage ritual using UNZENTED Body Oil is an amazing way to deepen the connection with your baby. After lifting and carrying little ones all day, caregivers need a little care for themselves, as well. A soothing neck and shoulder massage with UNZENTED Body Oil is also a great way to wind down and connect with a partner.
We wish all the amazing mothers, wives and friends out there a happy Mother’s Day! How do you incorporate self care into your family routines? Let us know in the comments!
