Face and Skin Care

Ayurvedic beauty is considered a reflection of our inner health; it sees the skin to be the mirror of our internal balance or imbalance.  Skin is an indicator of physical and mental wellbeing and radiant skin creates a great boost for one’s self confidence. Skin is also the largest organ in the body, so skin care should be an important part of our daily routine. What sets Ayurvedic face and skin care above the rest? There is a sophistication and wisdom in the eastern healing system that sets it apart from any other. These qualities are one of herbal energetics and tastes and rasayanas. Eastern wisdom recognises that plants have particular characteristics and inherent qualities that have specific actions or affinities with an individual’s body and skin type. This knowledge helps to clarify the basic qualities of plants and gives us an intuitive way to understand the way they work internally and externally in the body. It enforces the vital concept that, what is good for one is not necessarily good for another, and we all have qualities that will either have a special affinity for an herb or be in discordance with it. Plants are living substances. They contain a vital life energy. It is what differentiates living matter from synthetically derived matter. Plants are composed of the same vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, enzymes and hormones that we are. Our body recognizes plants as nutrition. We can safely eat most of them, use them in body care products and diffuse their oils for their therapeutic benefits. Unlike chemical cosmetics or ingredients are "man made" which are devoid of life. The body recognises that they are different from nature's plants and one's own chemistry. The traditional Ayurvedic beauty principle states that nothing should be applied to the skin if it cannot be taken internally. Ayurveda has taught for thousands of years that the skin can absorb nutrients that will affect our body on a cellular level. Due to our own predominance of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, everyone’s skin will be different (dry, combination, oily) and will react differently to various substances that we apply or absorb from the environment. Ayurda products work to rebalance your Vata, Pitta, or Kapha.
