Ayurveda cosmetics, what are the benefits of Ayurveda in cosmetics?

In Ayurvedic beauty, only products that can also be eaten apply to the skin and hair.

Ayurvedic cosmetics: 100% natural Indian plant ingredients

For rebalancing the skin and hair, embellishing and protecting it , Ayurvedic cosmetics draws its nourishment from the Indian garden, among its flowers, fruits, spices and plants. In form of powder (almond, rose, nettle, horsetail, turmeric for the best known, but also manjishta and amla, specifically plants Indians), vegetable oils and butters , hydrosols (water obtained from the distillation of plants), these cosmetics do not use additives, artificial perfumes or preservatives.

In Ayurveda, natural, vegetable and pure products are used

Ayurveda, a philosophy that takes into account the whole being

In the West, cosmetics are based solely on skin or hair analysis. For example, the products focus on rebalancing oily skin or moisturizing dry skin. Ayurvedic beauty, on the other hand, takes much broader criteria into account.

Ayurveda considers that the human being is a whole, and that our constitution influences the state of our skin. This discipline takes into account not only physical criteria, but also broader characteristics specific to each individual.

An Ayurvedic cosmetic adapted to each dosha

To identify the treatments that are best for you, you must first determine your prakriti , your primary nature. This is based on three doshas that constitute the individual in unequal proportions: one can be vata predominant – air and ether –, predominantly pitta – fire and water – or predominantly kapha - water and earth.

Each of these doshas corresponds to physical and mental characteristics such as the nature of the skin or hair, but also body size, the appearance of teeth or appetite.

Having an ideal constitution, which corresponds to the perfect balance of these three doshas, ​​is very rare . Most of the time, one or two doshas dominate, while others are insufficient. The goal of Ayurveda is to restore balance. If Ayurvedic plants and maneuvers are sometimes adapted to one or the other of the doshas that they rebalance, many treatments are suitable for all profiles.

How to determine your dominant dosha?

To choose the Ayurvedic recipes that suit you best, consult with a specialist in Ayurvedic medicine.

3 oils for skin and hair for each Dosha:

  • Kapha dominant: adopt neem (or neem) oil. Soothes irritated skin, redness, acne. Pour a few drops into a damp palm, emulsify, then apply to face or body. As a hair mask, this oil rehydrates the scalp and eliminates dandruff. Its disadvantage: a rather unpleasant smell.
  • Pitta dominant: bet on coconut oil. Moisturizing and softening, it makes the skin soft and silky. In the hair mask, it restores vigor to the hair, which sheaths and protects without weighing it down.
  • Vata dominant: The best is sesame oil. Its nutritional qualities make it an exceptional treatment. It prevents wrinkles and works wonders on very dry skin. Also very effective in massaging the ends of dry hair.

Vegetable oils, balms and butters in ayurveda;

Nourishing, protective and softening, vegetable oils, balms and butters They are used in massages. Rich and melted, the butters, solid at room temperature, are obtained after pressing the pits or seeds of fruits, mango, kokum or salt, for example. Liquid oils are obtained by the same process. By mixing butter and vegetable oil, we obtain a balm, a semi-solid paste that melts in contact with body heat and is used for localized massages and care for dry areas of the body and face.

Vegetable powders in Ayurvedic

Vegetable powders (powdered petals, roots, bark or leaves) are used as a base to make paste used as a mask or to cleanse the skin and hair. Shikakai and reetha (washing nuts) powders, naturally rich in saponins with washing properties, are widely used for washing hair.

For facial treatment, each has its own properties:

  • neem powder cleanses and tones acne-prone skin;
  • brahmi powder , mature and tired skin;
  • sparkle dust heals damaged or wrinkled skin;
  • rose dust it is an astringent for oily skin, gives a good-looking effect, erases signs of fatigue;
  • chickpea powder it is cleaner and disinfectant;
  • ashwagandha powder tones mature skin and awakens the complexion;
  • turmeric powder It has a good appearance and an anti-aging effect
  • cinnamon powder it is stimulating

floral waters in ayurveda

Hydrosols are floral waters that are used as face lotions to perfect cleansing, before applying an oil. Patchouli, Damascus rose, incense and sandalwood hydrosols are the most used. Their properties are identical to those of the essential oils that correspond to them:

  • patchouli it is antiseptic and healing, it improves acne;
  • the damask rose fights wrinkles and repairs the skin;
  • sandalwood is rebalancing
  • and the incense It is a skin repairer.

The milks are used to cleanse and remove makeup from the face.

For any kind of dominant dosha , almond milk, coconut milk powder are particularly effective and gentle in removing impurities from the skin. Simply wipe it over your face with your make-up removing pads, including around the eyes, before rinsing with water and continuing with your normal skincare routine. Also, to remove shadows and mascara, opt for a sweet almond oil, without fear for the fragile eye area.
