We live in a modern world and for most of the women the perception of Modernity is having a Smart Physique and a Glowing Skin. Women have a natural inclination towards fashion, beauty, stylish clothes, high heels, makeup and cosmetics. That’s the success mantra for all the fashion related companies.
Right from childhood we, the ladies, struggle to get a beautiful and a radiant skin. Initially it’s our grandmother’s home made remedies that help us to do so. As we gradually grow young, our skin wears down with age, lack of proper care, pollution, tiredness and a hectic schedule. Due to lack of sufficient time it becomes almost impossible to spend even some minimum time to prepare our grandmother’s ‘Uptan’. In such circumstances to get back our radiant skin we tend to depend up on various makeup kits easily available in the market.
These cosmetic products are made up of different chemicals and hence are very harmful for the skin. But due to their high publicity, easy availability and our ignorance, we seldom get to know about their side effects.
I personally depend upon home made Ayurvedic uptans for nourishing my skin. They contain lots of minerals suitable for our skin and are totally safe. There are various ayurvedic beauty packs that helps in rejuvenating the skin.
Some of these are-
1. Multani mitti or Fuller’s earth- Our body is made up of five elements and one of them is Earth. Multani mitti is an excellent cleanser. It is rich in minerals and aids in absorbing dead skin cells. Apply a thick paste of multani mitti on the face and leave for some time. When it gets dry, wash your face. You will find your face more soft and glowing right from the first use.
2. Haldi or Turmeric- It is known for its aromatic and antiseptic properties. It is very beneficial for treating dermatological disorders. You can make your face pack by adding a pinch of turmeric to it.
3. Aloe Vera- It helps in relieving chapped lips, dry skin, itching and make the skin smooth and supple. Using aloe vera gel at night before going to bed will make your skin radiant within few days.
The remedy that i personally use for my skin is VICCO Turmeric Cream with foam base. Apart from being readily available, it has many more useful characteristics. It contains almost all the minerals required by our skin. It is made up of ayurvedic ingredients that are totally safe for our skin, like turmeric.
Although many skin care products are available in the market that promise to give us a radiant skin but at the end of the day they all will have many side effects. Its better to take some time out of our busy schedules and spend some time nurturing our body and skin with ayurvedic remedies.
