In recent times, Ayurveda has gained considerable popularity in the wellness field, but its potential in the skin care industry is yet to be fully realized. Ayurvedic ingredients, when incorporated into a skin care routine, have the potential to work wonders, providing a range of benefits, promising healthy and flawless skin that reflects not only the confidence but also the wisdom of ancient Ayurvedic practices.
In an interview with HT Lifestyle, Dr Kriti Soni, Head of R&D at Kapiva, suggests 5 Ayurvedic beauty products that have the potential to enhance your skin care regimen with regular use, giving you the best of both worlds – ancient wisdom and modern beauty:
1. Bhringraj hair mask
Hair care is an important part of any beauty routine, and Bhringraj Hair Mask is a must for every woman. This hair mask helps nourish and strengthen hair from root to tip and is made with natural ingredients including Bhringraj, Brahmi, Amla and Neem. The result is beautiful, healthy hair that grows faster and experiences less hair loss.
Since ancient Ayurvedic literature, Ubtan has been used as a natural beauty remedy in India. A mixture of herbs, grains and pulses is traditionally ground into a fine powder to make ubtan, an Ayurvedic herbal paste. It is then mixed with water or additional ingredients such as milk, honey, or rose water to form a paste that is applied to the body and face. Ubtan has evolved over time to include many types and combinations of components depending on the specific aesthetic concerns of individuals. Brands like Kapiva have ubtan-based products that are intended to fit into modern life while retaining the benefits of ubtan’s historical use.
