How supermodel Carol Gracias takes care of her baby-bump to avoid strech marks

Supermodel Carol Gracias created ramp history when she became the first visibly pregnant Indian showstopper at LFW last month. We saw a redux of that moment as she joined television anchor Shveta Salve and twelve other expectant glam-moms on the ramp for Bio Oil’s Yummilicious Walk for Mother's Day.

Beauty remedy Bio Oil has a cult following internationally for being a cure-all. It tackles everything from stretch marks to cellulite and doubles as an intensive body moisturiser. The dry feel makes it that much more desirable. 

Secret weapon

For pregnant women, it is the secret weapon for flawless baby bump skin. Carol who also choreographed the show, said, “Bio Oil has created a great platform for all expecting mothers to shed their inhibitions. I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to choreograph the walk with all these gorgeous women. Joining these lovely mothers has been an over-whelming experience. So, all you Yummy Mummies out there go ahead and flaunt your cute baby bumps.” Piped in an excited Shveta, “It has been heart-warming to share the stage with such confident and glowing yummy mummies. Pregnancy is a wonderful journey that should be cherished and rejoiced. Here’s wishing all the mothers-to-be a happy Mother’s Day.”

Handy advice

It wasn't just glamour that the girls took home. Specialists like celebrity gynaecologist Dr Kiran Coelho and dermatologist Dr Rashmi Shetty shed light on the ideal time after which mothers could start exercising in order to shed their pregnancy weight and gave tips for improving one's skin post-pregnancy.

Said Dr Kiran Coelho, “Women often feel conscious of not having the perfect body during their pregnancy. Having a baby is certainly one of the most special feeling for a mother-to-be however the worry of stretch marks during and post-pregnancy is a matter of great concern for her. Using anti-stretch marks oils such as Bio Oil will certainly make a huge difference.”

Dr Rashmi Shetty added, “A major worry that every pregnant woman has is, whether the stretch marks are ever going to go. The answer for which is try to minimize stretch marks during pregnancy by regularly applying moisturizers and oils such as Bio Oil, which contain Vitamin E, Lavender, Calendula and Rosemary.” 

Baby on the way? No need to take a pregnant pause, girls. If you've got it, flaunt it!!
