Nothing warms up the room like a Mother’s love – do you agree? This month, whether you are a new mom, pregnant mom-to-be or celebrating your Mother’s Day again, Shaista Sophia, Medical Pharmacist and Founder of South Africa’s first intimate skincare range SKINSTEM™, urges women to lean into appreciating themselves, their body and their skin.
“Feminine care is so important, and something that we want women all over South Africa to embrace in abundance this Mother’s Day. As women – our bodies undergo several transitions, changes and transformations in our lifetime. One of the biggest changes our bodies experience is pregnancy and birth. Becoming a Mother is a blessing that keeps on giving, but it is also something that changes our skin tremendously. From stretch marks, to lose skin, hyperpigmentation and sensitivity, these all affect your skin and intimate areas,” explained Sophia.
SKINSTEM™ products are vegan and cruelty free made to reinvigorate the skin in your V-area, leaving you feeling confident, comfortable and providing you with a sense of being carefree. It’s time invest in yourself and your skin – by taking the leap into caring for your V-area. The #LoveYourVulva movement aims to encourage women to pay attention to their V-areas, love their vulva’s and place importance on skincare for your V-area.
Skincare is important for a happy mind and healthy body. Whether you have been a Mom for a week, a month, a year or ten years – never stop loving yourself, taking care of your skin and investing time into your wellbeing. While the postpartum affects fade as time goes on, your skin stays with you forever.
