Are you a pregnant mom with an endless list of skin problems?
I have both good and bad news for you.
Here’s the good news : Your skin will change positively very soon.
Sounds too good to be true?
Here’s Mumbai based Mrs. Rutuja Yadav’s post pregnancy organic skincare journey proving just the same.
Here’s the bad news : You’ll have to be a supermom like Rutuja
Once you tread on the organic skin care path with the intention of seeing REAL changes it’s a grilling affair.
Let’s dive straight into Rutuja’s journey!
Part 1 – Root Cause Assessment
It was in February 2018 that Rutuja had messaged me on Instagram seeking help for her skin. I ran my eyes over her pictures and couldn’t help but whisper, “Wow, she’s pretty”
Since it had been a few months since Ayaan (her now 1 year old son) was born, Rutuja’s skin –
- Looked dull and unnaturally oily
- Had pimples and spots here and there
- Redness in cheeks
Part 2 – Plan of Action
I’ll be honest – Rutuja’s skin screamed “improvable”
I customised her organic skin care routine which she committed to follow whole heartedly.
And off we kick started Rutuja’s post pregnancy skin care journey!
How Rutuja’s Skin Changed Incredibly
Baby Steps (3 weeks)
In a matter of 3 weeks, this happened
(Hold your breath)
Picturing us break into a happy dance?
Hold your horses!
Here comes a twist in the story
With a family function around the corner, Rutuja asked me if she could put makeup or not. Deep inside, I wanted to raise red flags in the air but somehow green-lighted her wish.
Needless to say, she looked every inch stunning at the wedding.
Point to be noted
Rutuja’s skin had cleared up well before the 3-Day functions kick started. So, that glow you’re sighing over isn’t attributed to makeup solely.
Give the devil her due!
(Subtle appeals for applause)
Sob Story (1 day later)
All hell broke loose
Because Rutuja’s skin broke out into pimples despite the use of high end branded makeup.
Honestly, I had expected this to a certain extent. That being said, I was hoping against hope it doesn’t happen. Clearly, my prayers went unheard.
In short, we were back to square one
Pull Your Socks Up
Here’s the thing
Once you discover how amazing your skin can turn into, you don’t settle for anything less. If getting back that glow calls for time, you dedicate it unquestionably just like Rutuja did.

A Little Note To Rutuja
I am smitten by your personality, Rutuja!
I could sense disappointment (and not immature panicking) in your tone when your skin broke out into pimples after the wedding.
On a positive note
Not once did I see it turn into pessimism, frustration or an excuse to drown in a pool of cosmetics.
I admire that deeply
Ayaan has a lovely lady to look up to. Strangely, why are violins playing in my head?
You see, someone’s clearly awed by you
