So for as long as I can remember, this orange and yellow root has been taken out of my family’s refrigerator for so many reasons.

This is not a sponsored post. Pratima Skincare has no idea who I am. I was introduced to this line by my awesome friend and just wanted to share my thoughts and opinions.
While I was pregnant, one of my best college friends Bethany introduced me to an Ayurvedic skincare line called Pratima Skincare. A leading international specialist in Ayurveda, Dr. Pratima Raichur, developed this line. Bethany is a photographer by trade (a highly talented one at that) and was hired to do the photography for Pratima’s website. She was instantly hooked to the products and felt incredibly inspired by Pratima’s philosophy on skin, diet and lifestyle in general. Each time we’d talk, Bethany would list out all the many reasons why I needed to check out the skincare line. I knew it was just a matter of time before I was going to try Pratima products out myself, but Bethany helped expedite the process by sending me a “momma to be” care package, which included a bottle of Pratima’s Reparative Anti Stretch Mark Oil and a copy of her book, Absolute Beauty. Later on after Jai was born, she mailed over a bottle of Pratima’s Botanical Baby Massage Oil.
