An Introduction To Ayurvedic Beauty
Natural skincare and body care predate the chemical-based products, suspended in plastic tubes and containers, that fill our bathroom shelves today. Ancient India is to thank for the basis of lots of natural beauty today.
Ayurvedic medicines and rituals date back over 5,000 years ago. In a world that is so plagued with environmental stressors, it seems only natural to turn to remedies and practices that don’t contain toxins or chemicals.
Traditional Ayurvedic beauty rituals focus on the quality of ingredients as our skin is our largest organ and absorbs everything we put apply. Ayurveda is about looking at the body and mind holistically and acting in tune with nature.
Taking an Ayurvedic approach to skincare and body care means switching off from technology and using the time to take care of our mind and your skin.
Detoxifying the skin from environmental pollutants is incredibly important to rid the pores of dirt and grime, that cause clogged pores and dull skin. The Nourish Facial Exfoliant is a synergistic blend of antioxidants and mineral-rich botanicals and salts that work to exfoliate the skin. Effective but gentle, this polish instantly resurfaces the skin and pulls out any impurities.
Once a week after cleansing, massage the polish onto damp skin in circular motions. Not only will your skin feel softer and smoother, but thanks to the scent of ylang-ylang, you should feel balanced and destressed.
It is hard for our skin to find balance when it is constantly being bombarded with environmental stressors. Three times a week, before your daily shower, pop on the Enliven Mask for 15 minutes before jumping into a warm shower to further activate the mask. This treatment is rich in antioxidant vitamins along with a blend of apoptogenic herbs, oils, and minerals that work together to balance and tone the skin.
A wonder for every skin type, this mask promotes an even skin tone, reduces redness, balances oil production, stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, and leaves your skin radiant.
My favourite moment of the day is when I give myself my evening face massage with a beautiful organic oil. It does wonders to calm my mind and stimulate my skin. The Radiance Facial Oil is an apoptogenic blend of organic oils, that work to hydrate, rejuvenate, and purify. It is designed to support and strengthen the skin to ensure a plump and hydrated complexion. Wonderful for dry skins and acne-prone skin types, as the ingredients will never clog pores.
Massage 3 to 5 drops onto slightly damp skin, moving upwards and outwards. Inhale the beautiful, calming scent and focus on the present moment.
Taking time in the mornings and or evenings to treat your body to some love and hydration is a moment to focus on you, the now, and put all other thoughts to the side. The Radiance Body Oil is an aromatic, soothing, and softening treatment. The scent encourages a meditation, easing the mind into a grounded state.
Massage this oil all over the body right after bathing, so the skin is still damp. This wonderful body oil absorbs effortlessly but leaves the skin hydrated and radiant.
