We follow a lot of beauty tips in our daily routine, take a lot of supplements and follow a plethora of homemade remedies only to get that flawless, glowing skin. But sometimes all our efforts go in vain and we keep wondering what went wrong? This is because we don’t always follow such tips in the exact way they should be followed. The mantra to get it right is to do what our ancestors used to do: Recourse to Ayurvedic and organic products rather than the expensive treatments that do not guarantee long time success.
In this blog post, we would discuss some of the ayurvedic beauty tips that you can follow even in a hectic lifestyle. So let’s take the first step to know your skin and ensure to give it the best that it deserves!
Step 1: Cleanse – Clean skin is like a white canvas to create something beautiful. With so much pollution, grime and dust around, especially in the metro cities, a good cleanser for your skin is the first step toward natural beauty. People who usually spend most part of their day outside of office need to necessarily follow this step, to remove all impurities. Having said that, it’s important that you don’t overdo this step and make it twice a day activity. Cleansing your face often would rob your face of all the natural oils, which are important in keeping the skin soft and supple. Choose a gentle soap-free cleanser like Bio Honey Gel that is suitable for all skin types. It contains pure honey, turmeric and herbal extracts from trees to deep clean the skin. BIO ORRIS ROOT LIGHTENING FACE CLEANSER is also cleanses and brightens your skin, without disturbing skin’s natural ph balance.
Step 2: Exfoliate – This is one step that people usually give a miss, and jump directly to washing the face. But exfoliating is a very important step as it instantly removes the dead skin and unclogs the pores that restrict the entry of creams and lotions into the skin. This sets the base of the skin for next steps. But it has to be noted that too much exfoliating of the skin can also damage the skin, hence we should limit this step to twice per week. You can try Bio Papaya Scrub which is gentle yet intense on the skin, and suits almost all skin types. It is blended with pure papaya fruit to dissolve dead surface cells and uncovers skin’s natural brightness/
Step 3: Wash – We all know the importance of this step, and yet do mistakes in choosing a good face wash for our skin. If we know our skin well, it will be easier to take a face wash for dry skin, normal skin, oily skin or sensitive skin. Banking on ayurvedic formulations is the safest route you can take in choosing a good face wash. Some beauty tips for fairness: try these very popular face wash from Biotique – Bio White, Bio Pineapple, Bio Honey Gel, Bio Neem and Bio Papaya. If you are bogged down with tanned skin and looking for some fairness face wash, lay your hands on Bio White. It is an advanced fairness facewash that makes way for a visibly lighter skin tone. Similarly, Bio Papaya is an exfoliating face wash that helps in skin’s natural brightness and younger-looking complexion. If you are tired and want to instantly uplift your skin, Bio Honey Gel is the safest bet. It has turmeric and extracts of arjun tree that dissolves make-up and impurities from the skin, and giving it a fresh look.
Step 4: Moisturise – Moisturizing your skin might sound as easy, but it is the most tricky step. Oily skin calls for a water-based moisturizer, whereas dry skin need oil-based/petroleum based moisturizers. There are special moisturisers for people with acne, rashes and sensitive skin. Also, special care must be taken while applying it. Dry skin can apply the moisturiser/skin cream on need basis (can be 3-4 times a day), while people with oily skin should only use it after washing the face, to maintain the skin ph balance. In winters when there’s lack of moisture in the air and tend to drink less water, the skin becomes ultra dry and skin needs more moisturization. Try some of the very nourishing moisturisers from Biotique like Bio Sandalwood, with real extracts of sandalwood, saffron, wheat germ, honey. For extra dry skin, try Bio Winter Cherry made from pure winter cherry, sunflower, safflower, musk root and almond oil.
So, what are we saying?
The best beauty advice this year would be to Know Your Skin. Understand its texture and give it a customised solution. For example, if you have a dry skin, using lemon or lemon based products is not a nice thing to do. Similarly, using almond cream on an oily face may not help as much as you think it would. If you are unsure of your skin type, you can try our Free Skin Consultation service, wherein we access your skin texture on some parameters selected by you, and guide you the right type of Biotique product(s).
This is the year of glow. Keep glowing!
