    How to Get Rid of Acne Scars and Pimple Marks Naturally

    One of the most annoying skin care problems is acne and pimple marks. While the pimple might only stay for a maximum of five-seven days, the acne scars it often leaves behind can last for weeks. A balanced diet, good water intake, and natural skincare routine is the best way to get rid of acne scars and pimple marks. Before that, it is essential to understand how facial scars are caused and what products are the best products for acne scars. In this blog, we will solve all acne marks-related questions. 

    What are Acne Scars and Pimple Marks

    Facial scars are usually the result of inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall. Shallow lesions are usually minor and heal quickly. But if there is a deep break in the wall of the pore, infected material can spill out into surrounding tissue, creating deeper lesions. The skin attempts to repair these lesions by forming new collagen fibers. These repairs usually aren’t as smooth and flawless as the original skin.

    Types of Pimple Marks

    It is important to understand the type of acne scars for further treatment and skincare routine. 

    Ice pick

    An ice pick tool has a wide shaft that narrows down to the tip. This type of facial scar resembles the tool in that it’s a hole that’s wide at the top and narrows to a point as it goes deeper into the skin. Such an indentation is common and also one of the most challenging facial scars to heal. They usually happen on your forehead and upper cheeks, where your skin is thinner.


    These facial scars are typically found on the lower cheeks and jaw, where your skin is thicker. The indents have sloping edges that make the skin look uneven and wavy.


    Boxcar scars are indents that have sharper edges. Those edges go down deep into the skin. These scars are common on the lower cheeks and jaw.

    What Causes Acne Scars and Pimple Marks on Face?

    Facial scars happen because your body is trying to repair the acne. How your unique body responds to a wound determines if and how much scarring you’ll have. The process of repair includes the creation of collagen. If there’s too much collagen then the raised scars appear. Another scarring is caused by the loss of tissue, which creates pits or indentations in the skin.

    Medical Treatments to Get Rid of Acne Scars

    There are various types of medical treatments that can be done after getting acne marks checked by a dermatologist. Listing down some of the facial scars removal treatments.

    Chemical Peeling Treatment

    This treatment uses special chemicals to remove pimple marks by removing the top layer of old skin. Typically whenever the top layer is removed, the new skin that grows in is smoother and has fewer scars. If you want less visible scars, this treatment is for you!


    This treatment uses a special tool that produces friction to remove the top layers of skin, much like a sander removes the top layers from a plank of wood.

    Laser Treatment

    The laser delivers heat to the collagen under your skin. This relies on the body’s wound-healing response to create new, healthy collagen. This encourages the growth of new skin to replace it. 


    Filler injections can help you fill in facial scars and make your skin look even and smooth. The fillers are made with collagen, your own fat, or a commercial filler. They’re injected under the surface of the skin to help plump up and smooth out depressed scars. Most fillers last between 6 and 18 months before they need to be redone, but some are permanent.

    How to Prevent Acne Scars?

    There are various ways to take care of and prevent pimples. Listing some of them below. 

    Don’t Pop Pimples

    When you pop a pimple, all the oil, bacteria, and debris from the pimple are released onto your skin. This is why popping or picking at your acne causes more acne and it also leaves an open wound that can scar even worse. One way to eliminate the urge to pop or pick at your acne is to cover pimples with hydrocolloid bandages. These bandages help your skin heal faster and prevent you from causing any damage that could lead to scarring.

    Use Natural Products

    The acne-prone skin is sensitive and cannot handle harmful chemical-led products. The harmful chemical-led products can lead to skin allergies and acne-causing marks. The products that are infused with natural ingredients like Niacinamide, Aloe Vera, Green Tea, etc work the best for acne and acne marks. Natural skincare products get absorbed in the skin and help in reducing acne and pimple marks

    Wear Sunscreen Daily

    Damage from the sun can darken spots and scars from acne. We recommend applying sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, all year round. If you remain diligent about wearing sunscreen every day, any acne scars you develop will be much less noticeable because your skin will not be subject to sun damage. The Moms Co. Natural Daily Sunscreen is a non-sticky, lightweight, mineral sunscreen that absorbs quickly without leaving any white cast. The SPF 45+, PA++++ provides complete protection against UV-A rays and blocks 98% of UV-B rays.

    Keep your Skin Moisturized

    Keeping your skin moisturized can help you maintain a plump, healthy appearance. Not only does moisturizing help your skin’s healing process, but it also helps existing acne scars look less noticeable by unifying your skin’s tone and texture. To avoid drying out your skin, we recommend limiting hot showers and applying natural oil-free moisturizer twice a day.


    Q: Do acne marks go away?

    A: Yes, acne marks can fade away with time if treated well. It is advised to use natural skin care products for acne-prone skin. 

    Q: What fades acne marks fast?

    A: The Moms Co. Natural range of Anti-acne products can help remove acne marks faster. 

    Q: Can stress lead to pimples?

    A. Stress can trigger a whole host of changes in your body, according to experts. And these changes can lead to pimples and acne.


  • Top 5 Reasons to Use a Moisturizing Cream Everyday

    Top 5 Reasons to Use a Moisturizing Cream Everyday

    Every skincare routine you look at, will have a moisturizer somewhere near the end of the routine. But why? A moisturizing cream or lotion has a lot of benefits like preventing dry skin, helping in fighting pollutants, adding natural glow to the skin among others. Therefore, moisturizing your skin is a must and even doctors recommend doing it. However, there are some misconceptions related to moisturizing, the most common being people with oily skin shouldn’t use moisturizers. But, as we said, it’s a misconception. Today, we’ll discuss why you must moisturize your skin (irrespective of the skin type) and the benefits of moisturizing.

    • Protects from Dryness

    The most common reason that leads people to buy a moisturizer is dry skin. Although a moisturizer is a lot more than fighting off dry skin, it is one of the biggest problems it solves. But how does this process work? A moisturizer’s primary purpose is to draw water to your skin and help lock it in. Humectants present in a moisturizer have the ability to absorb water from the environment into the outer layer of your skin, which results in long lasting skin hydration.

    Moisturizers that are rich in Shea Butter, Honey Extract can help soothe dry skin with ease. Similarly, water-based moisturizers are light on the skin, they hydrate the skin and help you fight off dry skin with ease. This is one of the reasons why you should get a moisturizer.

    • Prevents Skin Flaking

    If you witness skin flaking then a moisturizer is a product that can help you solve this problem with ease. A fragrance-free moisturizing cream like the natural body butter applied right after bath, can help with skin flaking. When you apply a moisturizer right after bath, it blends in with the soft skin and gets your skin moisturized evenly. 

    • Helps fight signs of ageing

    As we age, the rate at which our body produces collagen is reduced. Reduced collagen formation with time results in fine lines and wrinkles. If the moisturizer you use has ingredients like Hyaluronic acid, Rosehip Oil, it can boost collagen formation on the skin which can further help slow down the process of ageing. If you don’t want your skin to be saggy, and if you do not want fine lines in your early thirties, make sure you use a moisturizer twice a day, unless otherwise recommended by a doctor.

    Check Out: Our Natural Body Butter, the best body and face moisturizer.

    • Reduces Dark Spots

    This is another great reason to moisturize your skin everyday, moisturization helps reduce dark spots and removes dry cells as well. A moisturizer cream or lotion that is rich in Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, and Bakuchiol, if used everyday can reduce dark spots over time as they provide long lasting hydration to the skin. The best thing to do would be to moisturize every day so that dark spots do not appear in the first place, even if they do, a moisturizer with the ingredients mentioned above will help your skin reduce them.

    • Prevents Acne Breakout

    Drier skin is prone to acne breakout and a moisturizer can help solve this problem. If you don’t moisturize your skin regularly, it starts getting dry and dry skin produces excess oils that can clog your pores. Clogged pores result in frequent acne breakout. A moisturizer that is rich in Chamomile Oil and Bakuchiol can help clear out the pores and prevent acne breakout. 

    Moisturize your skin

    We hope now you have more clarity on the benefits of using a moisturizer. To sum it up, if you want to get clear, glowing, and hydrated skin, you should use a moisturizer everyday.

  • The Perfect Winter Skincare Routine, for Winter-Ready Skin

    The Perfect Winter Skincare Routine, for Winter-Ready Skin

    The winter season gives a new start to your daily routine– the bed feels cozier, the morning coffee sets you up for the day and sometimes, the evening coffee is exchanged for a cup of hot chocolate to keep you warmed up. But even when everything is warm and sweet during this season, without a proper winter skincare routine, it brings along skin concerns like dry, cracked skin, flaky lips, and more. Because of the lack of humidity, the air dries up, resulting in moisture chipping away from your skin. 

    And in a season where we yearn to be under the sun the most, exposure to sunlight for long hours breaks down collagen, causing sunspots, sagginess and so much more. 

    To help you make the best of the winter season, let The Moms Co. guide you through the essential components in a Winter Skincare Routine that’ll help your skin retain moisture for longer, avoid flaky-itchy skin, instead get natural, glowing skin. 

    Is a Winter Skincare Routine Really Necessary? 

    100% yes. To ensure your skin is moisturized and doesn’t appear flaky, ideally, one would buy a moisturizer, but is it really enough? Winter is undeniably harsh on the skin, which is why, a particular skincare routine during winter is a must for healthy, hydrated skin. 

    Here’s what an ideal winter skincare routine should include: 

    Sulphate-Free Face Wash

    A normal face wash every day will keep your skin clean from dirt, pollutants, and other bacteria, but most often, these face washes contain sulphate. They can deprive your skin of natural oils, leaving behind dry-flaky skin because of the naturally dry winter air. 

    Therefore, a sulphate-free face wash is essential in a winter skincare routine. Go for a natural, toxin-free face wash that helps cleanse the skin gently and is a great hydrating ingredient. The Moms Co. has a wide range of natural, dermatologically tested, toxin-free & sulphate-free face wash suited for all skin types. 

    Face Serum

    Since Face Serums are lighter, they majorly and most importantly, help in nourishing and restoring your skin from within. A Face serum rich in Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C  & other natural ingredients will help draw moisture to the skin and further retain it for a longer period.  We have a range of completely natural, chemical-free, toxin-free, and dermatologically tested face serums that provide ample benefits to your skin.

    The Natural Ceramide Face Serum works effectively in rebuilding the barrier to protect your skin, and keep it hydrated with rich qualities of Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, Natural Vitamin E and Rice Water. 

    Under Eye Cream

    The harsh, cold weather causes the natural hydrating quality to dry off from your skin, giving way to puffiness and wrinkles. That, added to the stress from your daily life, resulting in sleeplessness, tiredness and much more can cause dark circles to form under your eyes. In such situations, adding a Natural Under Eye Cream made with Chamomile Oil and Niacinamide in your Winter Skincare Routine is ideal, and will help fight wrinkles, dark circles, and puffy under eyes. 

    Made with natural Coffee and Chamomile Oil, the Natural Under Eye Cream by The Moms Co. helps reduce dark circles, signs of aging, and swelling and depuffs the under-eye area, all-in-one.  

    Moisturizing Cream/Lotion

     If you want your skin to fight off winter dryness, itching, and flaking with a few easy steps, then adding a moisturizing cream or lotion to your winter regime is a must. 

    Some of the best components to look for in a moisturizing cream or lotion are Ceramides, Rice water, Vitamin C, Bakuchiol (a natural, healthier alternative to Retinol), and other natural ingredients because they help in the deep moisturization and collagen formation of your skin. Clinically Tested for 72 Hours of Moisturization, our Natural Ceramide Face Cream rebuilds damaged skin barrier & accelerates its repair. It retains moisture and blocks environmental damage and works best for all skin types, especially in winter.


    Sunscreens are not just Summer products. They’re 365 days essentials. Prolonged exposure to sunlight during winter can result in collagen breakdown which can make skin dull and dry. A sunscreen’s job is to protect your skin from the after-effects of collagen breakdown, and the harmful UV-A and UV-B rays which can cause premature aging. 

    With the Natural Daily Sunscreen by The Moms Co., you can be sure of a non-sticky, lightweight, no-white-cast mineral Sunscreen. It not only provides protection against UV rays and UV-B rays but also prevents redness, and dark spots and fights pigmentation.

    Lip Balms

    One of the easiest steps to incorporate into your skincare routine is using a hydrating Lip Balm. Winters cause your lips to dry up quickly and very often, which is why it is essential to have a Lip Balm handy everywhere you go. Get a product that is rich in Vitamin E, and Shea Butters, these will nourish your lips and effectively repair chapped lips. Made with nourishing ingredients like Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter with hints of cherry, The Moms Co.’s range of nutrient-packed Natural Lip Balms will help you deeply nourish and hydrate chapped lips.


    Q: Which face cream is best in winter?

    A: The range of Face creams made with natural ingredients by The Moms Co. is the best in line for the Winter season. Dermatologically tested and toxin-free, the face creams can help you with your concerns. 

    Q: Can face serum be used in winter?

    A: Yes. While the harsh weather conditions during this season can cause your skin to dry up and appear flaky, the Face Serums Range by The Moms Co. can help you fight those winter concerns and make the best of this season.  

    While having a proper skincare routine down for use, it is important to understand that with the changing seasons, your skincare routines should change as well. Even though the winter season brings harsh weather and typical skin problems, the skincare routines don’t have to be over-complicated. It can be simple, yet effective if you follow a few simple steps mentioned above, that’ll potentially suit your skin type. 

    With the must-haves given by us in this blog, you can rest assured this winter season, and get clear, hydrated, and even-toned skin with a few simple additions to your skincare routine. 

  • Points to keep in mind to get best Baby Lotion for dry skin

    Points to keep in mind to get best Baby Lotion for dry skin

    Choosing the right baby lotion for your child can be very tricky, fret not, this blog will help you with the points you need to keep in mind to get the best baby lotion for your baby. Baby skin is very delicate when compared with adult skin; therefore you need to be very specific when choosing products for your baby.

    You need a product that is free from toxins, rich in natural ingredients and provides long-lasting moisturization to your baby’s skin.

    Look Out for Ingredients

    You’ll find countless baby lotions in the market claiming to be the best, but most of them do not have the key ingredients that help in fighting dry skin. When you check the label of the product you wish to buy, make sure that the product is rich in ingredients like Colloidal Oatmeal and Calendula Oil as they help in locking in moisture within the skin and enhance the skin barrier. Calendula Oil in particular has regenerating, antioxidant, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory properties that help in wound healing.

    Aloe Vera Gel is another ingredient that is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties, it will help soothe your baby’s dry and irritated skin. Besides these, make sure the product is made of toxin-free ingredients.

    Check for Lab-test Approvals

    Since a baby’s skin is sensitive, you should always look for clinical lab test labels or dermatologically tested/hypoallergenic tested labels on the product.


    Clinical lab test approvals ensure that the product composition is thoroughly tested under different conditions and it will not cause skin irritation or other side effects. Thus, a baby lotion that is clinically tested will relieve you from the stress of any side effects on your baby’s skin.

    Read here: Important things to look before getting a baby wipe.

    Go Natural

    The most important thing that you should keep in mind when buying baby lotion for dry skin is to choose a product that is made of natural ingredients and is toxin-free. Products that are toxin-free, paraben-free, synthetic fragrance-free, among other certifications are safe for your baby’s skin, here’s what each of these means:

    Toxin-Free: The term toxin-free is a label that represents a product being free from any potentially toxic, poisonous or harmful ingredients. It also indicates that the product is 100% natural and is not formed using any chemical components.

    Paraben-Free: Parabens are synthetic chemicals that are derived from para-hydroxybenzoic acid (PHBA) and are used to extend the shelf life of a product. A product labelled ‘paraben-free’ is free from any synthetic chemicals. The role of parabens is to prevent the product from fungi and other microorganisms. But research has suggested that parabens can cause skin irritation, can be potentially cancer-causing, and might have an impact on the reproductive systems of both men and women. Thus companies are trying to formulate compositions that can help them increase the shelf life of products naturally. If you find a baby lotion that has any of the following components, it has paraben and you should opt an alternative.

    • Methylparaben
    • Propylparaben
    • Butylparaben
    • Isopropylparaben
    • Isobutylparaben
    • Parahydroxybenzoate

    Synthetic Fragrance-Free: As the name suggests this label indicates that the product is free from any synthetically created fragrance. Products that are labelled synthetic fragrance free mostly have essential oils-based fragrances as an alternative. It is important for you to choose a synthetic fragrance-free baby lotion for dry skin because products with synthetic fragrance are not only the leading cause of contact dermatitis but they also cause redness, eczema, irritation among other skin problems.

    Tips for dry baby skin

    What do we offer?

    We cover all the points mentioned above. All products at The Moms Co. are toxin-free, paraben-free, sulphate-free, and synthetic fragrance-free as well.

  • The ultimate guide to age control face oils and how to choose the right one

    The ultimate guide to age control face oils and how to choose the right one

    Healthy and hydrated skin is something that we all want, but most people do not know the right products that can help in getting that desired skin. One such product is age control face oil.

    Signs of ageing are not uncommon; they particularly appear due to the harm done to the skin by pollutants and harmful sun rays. Age control face oils can help reduce fine lines & wrinkles and even help keep the skin hydrated, thus helping control signs of ageing.

    This ultimate guide to age control face oils will answer all the common questions around the use of face oils, and it will also help you choose the best face oil for your skin.

    What’s the use of age control face oil?

    Unlike age control serums that have concentrated liquids, face oils have a mix of lightweight, quick-absorbing, skin-friendly oils that help in nourishing the skin.

    The primary use of natural age control face oils is to help replenish the lipid layer, help keep the skin hydrated and add that natural glow to the skin. That’s just about the function though, what it also does is prevent signs of ageing and help in locking in the moisture.

    Why should you get one?

    An age control face oil has tremendous benefits, particularly in controlling signs of ageing and locking in moisture for the skin. Although most people with dry skin know the benefits of age control face oil, some think that they don’t need face oil if they have oily skin, which is a misconception.

    If you have oily skin

    Let’s debunk the myth here. No, having oily skin does not mean you can’t or shouldn’t use face oil. On the contrary, using a natural age control face oil can help reduce the excess sebum produced by the skin and provide essential nutrients to the skin.

    If you have dry skin

    Dry skin needs a product that can help retain moisture throughout the day. Besides that, people with dry skin face a lower lipid layer and lower amounts of fatty acids within the skin. Face oil can solve this problem. Age control face oils, in particular, can help lock in moisture within the skin and keep the skin hydrated throughout the day.

    Where does it fit into the routine?

    You can either use an age control face oil with your regular skincare routine or apply and leave it overnight. When adding it to your routine, here’s how it fits in generally:

    1. Face Wash

    2. Toner

    3. Face Serum

    4. Moisturizer

    5. Age Control Face Oil

    If you follow this routine, the face oil will settle in and help retain the moisture for a more extended period and keep your skin hydrated as well.

    For overnight use, you can wash your face, take 2-3 drops of the natural face oil, pat it on your face and neck, gently massage your face, and then leave it overnight.

    Read Here: Reasons to get obsessed with using face oil.

    Face Toner

    How to choose the right one?

    You’ll find multiple face oils in the market, but the question is; How do you choose the right one? The ideal thing to do would be to look for a face oil that is toxin-free, paraben-free, dermatologically tested, and made of natural ingredients.

    Ingredients that you can look out for are Bakuchiol, Vitamin E, Chia Seed Oil, Seabuckthorn Oil, etc. A face oil made of these ingredients will help you retain moisture and prevent signs of ageing as well, like the Natural Age Control Face Oil by The Mom’s Co.

    Why this product?

    Our Natural Age Control Face Oil is a non-greasy, non-sticky formula that helps lock in moisture and prevents signs of ageing. When you look at our product’s ingredients, we have used Bakuchiol, a great natural alternative to Retinol that helps prevent fine lines & wrinkles. Bakuchiol helps with pigmentation, skin firmness, and elasticity as well.

    Besides Bakuchiol, this product also has the goodness of Chia Seed Oil and Seabuckthorn Oil rich in fatty acids like Omega 3, 6 & 7 that help keep your skin hydrated and plump. What else? It has a mix of non-comedogenic oils that hydrate your skin without clogging the pores, and it is also dermatologically tested.


    Try our Natural Age Control Skin Firming Kit if you want to step up your age control game. It is a combo of the natural age control face oil and the jade roller – a cooling massage tool that helps in improving blood circulation, thus reducing puffiness, fine lines, wrinkles and helps in skin firmness.

    This combo helps in improving skin elasticity, toning the skin, improving blood circulation, locking in moisture, reducing signs of ageing, and increasing skin firmness. Get it here.

  • 5 Common Misconceptions about Stretch Marks and their Preventions

    5 Common Misconceptions about Stretch Marks and their Preventions

    Stretch marks have so many notions built around them that people think every mom gets them, and you cannot get rid of them. Well, research states otherwise. According to multiple pieces of research, stretch marks are not just limited to pregnancy, and neither are they limited to just weight gain.

    Stretch marks can appear on anyone’s skin under certain conditions. But that’s about the research; today, we are here to discuss the common misconceptions about stretch marks (there are many!) and their precautions. Here’s the Bonus – We’ve also attached the link to our dermatologically tested stretch marks removal cream at the end of the blog, which works magic on stretch marks. 


    1. Only Pregnant Women get Stretch Marks

    This is probably one of the most common misconceptions. Stretch marks are not just limited to pregnant women. Pregnancy does bring specific physical and hormonal changes to the body that increase the chances of stretch marks, but stretch marks are not limited to pregnant women.

    During pregnancy, the skin around the tummy and glutes stretches due to the tummy bulk, which is the main reason for stretch marks. However, women who are not pregnant also get stretch marks due to reasons like sudden weight change, improper diet, among others. 

    2. Stretch Marks Appear Only Around the Tummy

    There’s another widespread misconception, i.e., stretch marks appear only around the tummy. Again, that’s a NO! Although, understandably, women think pregnancy would cause stretch marks just around the tummy, but that’s just not it.

    Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body; the most common areas are the tummy, the buttocks, knees, thighs, and front shoulders. They are also unrelated to pregnancy, i.e., they can appear during sudden weight gain, puberty, and other hormonal changes.

    Read Here: Causes, Facts, and Myths about Stretch Marks

    3. Weight gain is the main reason behind Stretch Marks

    Sudden weight gain is one of the reasons behind stretch marks, but it is not the main reason. This misconception is very common because women tend to undergo significant weight changes during puberty, and pregnancy and stretch marks appear during these times very often.

    But besides weight gain, reasons like deficiency of Vitamin C, D, and E or lack of hydration might cause stretch marks under certain circumstances.

    4. Stretch Marks do not go away

    Biggest Misconception!! Stretch Marks may be hard to get rid off but they do go away, given you treat them right. Using stretch marks removal creams, maintaining a nutrition-rich diet, and keeping yourself hydrated can help reduce stretch marks.

    We at The Moms Co. have our very own Natural stretch marks bundle that helps in removing stretch marks. This stretch marks bundle helps reduce both stretch marks caused during weight gain and pregnancy stretch marks. It has a Natural Stretch Oil & Natural Body butter that takes care of your stretch marks and is clinically proven to keep skin moisturized for 24 hrs. Although older stretch marks are harder to remove by OTC treatment, they can be removed using laser treatments. 

    5. Only weight loss can remove stretch marks

    Imagine having your skin stretched to the extent that marks appear and then losing weight. Can you even picture stretch marks vanishing all by themselves? No, right? So, this is another misconception that weight loss removes stretch marks. 

    Yes, losing weight using a healthy diet and using natural stretch marks removal products together can definitely help, but just losing weight won’t do any good.


    We’ve discussed the five most common misconceptions about stretch marks, now let’s talk about preventing them from appearing. 

    1. Control Weight

    Weight control plays the most important role in the prevention of stretch marks. As we’ve discussed above, sudden weight gain is one of the reasons behind stretch marks; if you maintain a healthy diet, you can avoid stretch marks altogether.

    Now, weight control during pregnancy can be a challenge, but make sure you eat well, stay hydrated and feed the right nutrients to your skin too which includes using OTC products that have Sea Buckthorn & Rosehip oils – for collagen synthesis allowing body to stretch without causing the tears.

    2. Stay Hydrated

    Water can help prevent so many diseases, and disorders and stretch marks are one of them. But staying hydrated doesn’t only mean keeping a good fluid intake. In this case, it also means keeping your skin hydrated as well. 

    Keep your skin moisturized and drink at least 8-9 glasses of water every day to ensure that your body is hydrated. 

    3. Eat Nutrition Rich Diet

    You must include collagen-boosting and skin-friendly food in your diet as these keep your skin hydrated from within and prevent stretch marks. Besides this, you can also include Vitamin C, one of the most beneficial vitamins for your skin. 

    Adding Vitamin D and E can help increase the skin repairing metabolism and promote healthy cell growth. All in all, a nutrition-rich diet will ensure that your skin gets all the natural nutrients it needs and prevent stretch marks from appearing.


    Now that we’re done with the misconceptions and prevention of stretch marks, here’s the most critical point – the Cure. So, here’s the deal, you can control the occurrence of stretch marks. The easiest way to manage stretch marks is to try and control their occurrence in the first place and you can do this by following the points mentioned above and adding a stretch marks removal cream or bundle to your routine.

    Stretch marks removal bundle

    What’s the Stretch marks removal bundle?

    The stretch marks bundle by The Moms Co. comes packed with natural stretch oil and body buttercream.

    The body butter cream made with cocoa butter and shea butter is clinically lab-tested to provide 24 hours of moisturization and help in itchy and stretchy skin.

    The natural stretch oil combines seven powerful oils, including Sea Buckthorn and Rosehip oils, that support collagen growth and improve skin elasticity.

  • Green Tea Skincare- A Regime for Oily & Acne Prone Skin

    Green Tea Skincare- A Regime for Oily & Acne Prone Skin

    Oily, acne prone skin needs extra care and attention but once you find a routine that works for you, this skin type can easily be managed. One of the key ingredients to look for when you start building a routine for oily skin is Green Tea. Oily skin loves a good detox and green tea does just that. It helps control oil & impurities, making your skin looking healthy & nourished.

    Looking for a routine for oily, acne prone skin? Let’s build it together:

    Face Wash – Clean your face with a gentle, soap-free cleanser. It is recommended that you use a gel based cleanser that draws out dirt, oil & other impurities from your skin without dehydrating it or making it feel stretchy. The Moms Co. Natural Green Tea Face Wash is formulated with Green Tea, Niacinamide, Willow Herb, Aloe Vera and Kaolin Clay. It removes excess oil, helps control acne and leaves skin deeply cleansed, mattified and shine-free.

    Face Toner – It is very important to toner oily skin. It not only helps remove the last traces of dirt and oil but also balances skin’s pH. Additional benefits of toning include acne control and hydration. The Moms Co. Alcohol-Free Natural Green Tea Face Toner is formulated with Green Tea extracts, Apple Cider Vinegar, natural Plant AHAs, Aloe Vera and Cucumber. It gently exfoliates, tightens pores and soothes the skin. Pro tip: Spray it anytime during the day if you are looking for a boost of refreshment & hydration.

    Face Cream – One of the most common myths is that people with oily skin do not need a moisturizer. Skin that isn’t moisturized will produce more oil in order to balance out the missing hydration. It is very important to ensure that you use a moisturizer formulated with non-comedogenic ingredients. Look for lightweight moisturizers that help hydrate oily skin & also provide additional benefits like acne control.  The Moms Co. Natural Green Tea Face Cream is formulated with Squalane & Cucumber, and acne-fighting ingredients like Green Tea, Willow Bark & Niacinamide. It doesn’t clog pores and is perfect to wear under masks.

    Night Gel – The Moms Co. Natural Green Tea Night Gel is formulated with non-comedogenic ingredients like Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Niacinamide, Oats & Squalane. It works throughout the night to give you supple, hydrated and non-greasy skin in the morning.

  • The Importance of Vitamin C in your Skincare Routine

    The Importance of Vitamin C in your Skincare Routine

    Vitamin C has become one of the most raved about skincare ingredients. While most citrus fruits are a rich source of Vitamin C, the topical application helps it to get to work faster.
    Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and is rich in antioxidants that help fight oxidative damage caused due to sun, pollution, and other environmental factors, as well as ageing. The benefits of Vitamin C for skin are countless. It keeps your skin even-toned & glowing by gently exfoliating the skin. Vitamin C skincare also fights against free radical damage to prevent wrinkles & fine lines.

    Importance & Benefits Of Vitamin C for Skin

    The Vitamin C skincare routine not only provides a radiant glow to the skin but also protects your skin from sun damage. Here are some great benefits of Vitamin C:

    Helps reveal a brighter & fresher skin

    Vitamin C has many underlying benefits like it stimulates collagen synthesis that keeps the skin youthful and plump. It also evens out skin tone and naturally brightens the complexion, helping in reducing the appearance of dark spots. Vitamin C skincare prevents premature ageing giving your skin a brighter and fresher look.

    Reverses damage caused due to sun

    The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C help protect & reverse the damage done to the skin by harmful sun radiation and pollution. Adding Vitamin C skincare to your daily skincare routine can help reduce hyperpigmentation & dark spots revealing a clearer & smoother skin.

    Promotes collagen production

    Collagen is the building block of skin, hair, muscles, and tendons, and it is what keeps your skin looking youthful and smooth. With age, the collagen production slows down which can lead to saggy skin. Vitamin C is known for boosting collagen and can help prevent premature ageing, restoring a youthful, smooth appearance.

    Vitamin C Serum

    Reduces redness

    Blotchy, uneven, and red skin can result from a number of factors, including inflammatory skin conditions, sun exposure, hormones, and medical conditions. Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which help mend damaged capillaries that cause skin redness, creating a smoother, more even complexion.

    Aids wound healing

    Vitamin C is well known for its benefits for the immune system, but it also plays an important role in wound healing. It boosts collagen and repairs damaged DNA at a fast pace. Healthy wound healing reduces your risk of inflammation, infection, and scarring. This can be helpful because excessive collagen breakdown leads to scarring. 

    How to use Vitamin C for Skin Care

    When you apply vitamin C topically, the skin is able to absorb up to 10x more than you can take orally. This means that the skin can benefit from longer-lasting anti-aging effects, protection against the sun, and other environmental aggressors. Vitamin C has been shown to be highly effective at reducing hyperpigmentation, melasma & wrinkles.

    Vitamin C for skin can be applied as

    • Face Wash
    • Face Serum
    • Face Creams/Gels
    • Face Toner
