Sun-Safe Mama and Baby

If you guys follow my blog, you’d probably know how much Baby K and I love to be outdoors. The weather in the place we live in though 🙄 isn’t being quite merciful for some time now.

Does that mean we should stop going outside? How are we going to drain the abundance of energy the little one wakes up with? We are obviously not sitting at home but what we do is that we try our best to stay precautionary and safe in this scorching summer sun. The two things that I am extremely particular about, for both baby K and myself are –

a) To keep ourselves hydrated – water, lemon water, coconut water are few things that are a part of our daily staples. We try to sip one or the other thing every half an hour (and/or when needed) to make sure our bodies don’t lose out on the water quotient. I try to keep each one of these things completely accessible and in sight of baby K so that he never misses out on them.

b) To keep our skin safe – sun protection is a major thing for me. I hate to wear makeup on regular days, to avoid my problem skin get agitated and the only thing that’s usually on my face is the La Shield IR Sunscreen gel.

It was referred to me by a dermatologist and I totally swear by it since it’s everything my skin loves. It is protective, non sticky, light, oil free and gel based.

Price – 600 ₹ on Amazon

For the baby – I have been using the Mamaearth sun protectant ever since it was launched. It can be used from age 0-10 years. It is completely safe, mild and non sticky (I have this thing for non sticky, having an oily skin type). I have witnessed that dabbing the sunscreen on his sun exposed areas keeps his sensitive skin non irritable and protected. I absolutely trust this brand and am satisfied with it’s body lotion, body wash and toothpaste that I have been using on the baby as well. The sun protectant is hypoallergenic and chemical free and also very importantly, it is artificial fragrance free which is why I can use it on his face.

Price – 251₹ on Amazon.

MIGHTY MUMS MEET UP

June 23rd, along with various mom bloggers of in and around Delhi, the little one and I were invited to this super interesting event held by Palmers India and hosted by Funderland India.

Before I begin with the how abouts of the event, I’d like to draw your attention to how much fun my little chap had and I’m so glad we were a part of this event.

The reason for this happiness is the gala time we had at this indoor play area. Funderland not only impressed me with its facilities but also how warm the staff is. Every wish that was made by either the moms or the kids, was immediately fulfilled, thanks to the co-owner and Senior MD – Mr. Mayank Aggarwal, who made it a point to personally look after each and every one of our requirements.

What I liked most about Funderland is its hygiene (socks only policy) as soon as you enter the place and how they have divided the area for various activities so thoughtfully.

Seeing a ball pool the moment we entered the place made my little one so excited, he pulled his shoes off and dived into it immediately. A lovely carousel, tattoo artist, trampoline are few of the many activities available to keep the little ones occupied for hours. The kinetic sand pool kept him hooked for the longest time, post which the tattoo artist grabbed his attention and I felt free-er than ever. The staff is so courteous, they took care of him while I was busy with the moms meet up.

I also cant miss talking about the scrumptious snacks and meals we were offered during the course of the event, with extremely sincere staff who thoughtfully planned the meals to the T such that the moms and kids both could enjoy the same meal. The best part, they had the oreo shake for the kids and yum cold coffee for mums, that took my heart.

Not to forget the fact that Funderland has so much to do in the most reasonable prices and also some great deals for kids birthday parties and get togethers.

Apart from so much for the kiddo, there was a lot more for me too. Palmers, a brand that most moms are well aware of, especially during our pregnancies, introduced some new range of products. We have used their cocoa butter and stretch marks cream as a saviour during our pregnancy but what interested me here was the skin therapy oil. Loaded with vitamin E it heals problem skin with dark spots and lines and wrinkles, a must have for anyone above 30. Palmers was so generous with gifting all moms and kids goodie boxes with so lovely shampoos, lotions, conditioners and what not. All this is easily available on the Nykaa.com website.

If all that wasn’t enough, the gorgeous Dr Mahima Bakshi was there to chit chat with the moms discussing our pregnancies and diet and skin care related issues. She introduced her new book called Birthing Naturally, which is available on amazon.in and I’m sure is a great buy for expecting moms considering how well versed she is with the subject, being a lactation consultant too.

Run mommy run! but don’t let your make up do that

MAC Studio fix powder plus foundation is an absolute necessity for my skin.

I’m always carrying it around in my bag wherever I go, for touch ups.

My skin depends on this so much because:1) my skin is super oily and this holds my makeup in place. I also use it just over the sunscreen on regular days and it works wonders.

2) Delhi summers are so hot and humid, I definitely need something for the face that is light and keeps my liner and mascara from getting runny.

3) It is a quick solution to ‘be ready in 5’ because it is so hassle free to put on (very important reason for moms to own this🤣)

This is my forever favourite buy from MAC and I totally recommend this.

Weekend Skin Care

Hola guys! 👋

As much as I love the weekends to have fun and late nights without the worries of getting up to an alarm the next morning, there is a flip side to it.

Weekends are what screw my super sensitive skin to quite an extent.

⭕️For one we I wear obsessive amounts of make up 😉for parties which I usually don’t on regular days.

⭕️Secondly, late nights always make me skip on the CTM and I haphazardly just use a facewash before going into bed (so bad).

@garnierindia micellar water makes this abuse of skin a hell lot better for me. Recently started to use this and it is amazing how swiftly and nicely it brings down all the make up on the cotton ball, you don’t even need to rub it too hard.

Also, along with the make up, out goes all the dirt and grime stuck in the pores.

It says you don’t require to rinse your face post using this but I still like to do so. Believe me, my mommy-skin feels so fresh and clear after using this.

Comes in two variants, the other only is rather on the oily side so I prefer this non oil base one. This 125 ml bottle cost me 149₹ on Nykaa so I believe it’s really cost effective.
