HOW TO GET THAT INNER GLOW THIS FESTIVE SEASON

Noor Anand Chawla

Published

After several months of being shut indoors, the onset of the festive season has made everyone excited to step out, even if for short periods of time. Stepping out also means looking one’s best. With masks covering most of our features, the best of makeup looks become redundant. The only way to look flawlessly beautiful is by invoking an inner glow, which transcends age and skin-related problems, and the secret to achieving that is great skincare.

Though there are umpteen skincare brands on the market, best results can be achieved only through natural skincare which uses green and chemical-free ingredients, to ensure long-term results. I have been working on achieving my inner glow through a meticulous three-step skincare routine using Vedantika Herbals Products. Pioneered by a group of scientists and researchers, Vedantika Herbals believes in marrying the curative powers of ancient Indian wisdom with modern technology to achieve natural yet state-of-the-art products. They offer a multitude of natural skincare products to cater to all needs, at very affordable pricing.

For skincare beginners, I recommend their basic skincare products such as the Neem and Tulsi Face Wash, as I use it regularly myself. However, in this post I would like to highlight the three-step routine that is responsible for making my skin glow from within and look its best. Depending on your needs and skin type, you can try these products as well.

1. FACIAL SCRUB

Facial scrubs nourish, soothe and soften the sensitive skin on the face. They exfoliate dead cells and pollutants, ensuring a softer and more radiant complexion. Facial scrubs are versatile enough to be used as either a facial scrub or a facial mask. I like the one from this brand because it is formulated with oats, herbs, nuts and pulses and is gentle enough to be used on a daily basis, if one is not prone to active acne breakouts. I personally enjoy mixing the formulation with curd to form a paste, which provides added softness. Since my skin is prone to being dry in the winter, I also put a few drops of honey or any oil in the paste for extra hydration. The scrub removes impurities, dirt, contaminants and excess oil naturally, while nourishing from deep within.

2. DETOX FACE PACK

A weekly detox regime is a must for your face to reduce blackheads, dead cells, and rejuvenate your skin. The face pack from this brand is a blend of natural absorbents like kaolin clay and skin purifying ingredients like curcuma longa, oscimum sanctum, cinnamon and other precious herbs which remove external toxins and purify the skin with their therapeutic properties. I use this detox face pack once a week, usually after the facial scrub. For best results, the pack should be soaked in rose-water or curd for a few minutes, with a drop of honey for extra hydration.

3. FACIAL SERUM

This magic ingredient has contributed the most to my inner glow. Its main ingredient is kumkumadi oil, which is a unique blend of rare oils and herbs infused with pure saffron, aimed at making skin look young, healthy and spotless. Kumkumadi oil is prescribed in Ayurveda for a glowing complexion and even skin tone. It is well-known for its antiseptic, anti-bacterial and disinfectant properties, and is the perfect remedy for dull, pigmented, damaged and aging skin. The serum is best applied by rubbing it between your hands to make it warm, and then gently massaging it on to your face. It should be used every night before you sleep or in the day time under your makeup.

I have struggled with sensitive skin my entire life, and I have had to learn the hard way to rely on skincare products that contain “no nasties” or harmful ingredients. The reason I trust the skincare line by Vedantika Herbals is because their products contain no parabens, no silicones, no artificial aromas, no artificial colours, and are made from pure and finely ground natural ingredients. Their affordable pricing, efficacy of results and luxurious packaging make this line of natural and green skincare products my go-to ones, and their easy availability online is the cherry on top!
