Kids, Diwali Fun and Stains - Embracing it all!

Diwali is right around the corner! The other day I was trying to figure out how I actually feel about the Diwali holidays as a mother. Well, turns out I’m equal parts relieved and confused; I feel relieved for obvious reasons - no high-octane, rushed mornings! As a mother, my morning routine is characterized by a flurry of activities - running around frantically to gather school stuff, packing the lunch box, checking up on my kiddo every now and then to see if she has not dozed off again, getting her dressed for school, oh boy, I'm racing against the clock! So yeah, a 2-week break is hands down, a welcome breather. I love it when my days are relaxed and peacefully idle and that I can just do my own thing (most importantly, drink my coffee when it’s hot!) and spend quality time with my daughter.

But there’s a flip side to this - how do I keep her engaged? What do I do when I hear the dreaded “Mommy, I’m bored!”? Is there any way by which I can keep my daughter's Diwali vacations playful and productive? This is the confusing part I was talking about in the beginning. But as a mom, I needed to find those answers on my own and I think I have found them. Given below are some fun-filled, Diwali-apt activities that both you and your kids will enjoy!

Intense Hydration: Himalaya For Moms Soothing Body Butter Range

During pregnancy, hormonal changes in the body cause your skin to lose moisture and elasticity, as it stretches and prepares to accommodate a growing belly and another human being. And that reminds me about the sudden stretch marks that appeared in my 9th month of pregnancy that gave me the shock of my life! Additionally, once you deliver your baby, estrogen levels majorly drop, resulting in skin that gets even more dry than it was during pregnancy. When I was going through this phase, there were hardly any brands that I could trust and I resorted to more natural stuff, which also meant longer self-indulgence. But, with a baby, time is not a luxury you can afford. This is when I wished for body butters that were Ayurvedic and with multiple ingredients that would help my skin and which I could use right after a shower in a jiffy, but reap the benefits through the day.

Banish Those Greys - #FaceItSolveIt with True Roots Botanical Hair Tonic by Marico

The first time someone spotted a grey hair on my head a few years ago, I had a mini panic attack. I was suddenly consumed by the thought of turning all grey which was a scary feeling for me as I was not ready. My dad faced greyed really late whereas my mom greyed in her 30s, so I thought that I had inherited early greying from my mom. Thankfully that 1 strand has turned only to 5 in a few years which is not bad at all but I am always consumed by the fear of suddenly turning grey. While I try my best to have a work-life balance, there is a lack of balance quite a few times which makes me worry that, that will be the cause of my greys.
