Best Ayurvedic Skin Cream in Winter
Turmeric| The Golden Spice of Beauty
Youth is a gift of beauty but age is a work of art; I am impressed with these words. You can be gorgeous at 30, stunning at 40 and irresistible for the rest of your life. Winter is much awaited for the festive season and parties but winters are harsh on the skin. We have to pamper our skin or it will be dry and chappy. When shopping for skin-care products, choose the right ones for younger and glowing looking skin. Today, I am sharing the Best Ayurvedic Skin Cream in Winter
I am an advocate of natural skin-care; long before Golden Milk became popular in the west, turmeric was used in beauty rituals. As a home chef, it’s hard not to love spice like turmeric. It is a miracle ingredient for your skin and is ubiquitous in India. Not only adding a golden hue to any dish it has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Turmeric, the miracle cure for winter
Largely, it heals everything. Digestion issues? Turmeric. Winter Skin concerns? Turmeric. It clears out damaged skin cells and leaves your skin soft and glowing. It also benefits skin concerns like pigmentation, signs of ageing and sun damage, and treats acne and stretch marks.
Curcumin, an active component in turmeric has skin-enhancing properties. This imparts glow and lustre to the skin. During my wedding ceremony, the Haldi ceremony was held. I was told that the smearing of Haldi makes your skin radiant and glowing on your wedding day. It categorically helps in exfoliating skin cells to reveal fresh and rejuvenated skin. Since then turmeric has become an integral part of my skincare routine.
Sensitive Skin in Winter
I have delicate skin and acne has been a perpetual skin issue. Always be vary about over-the-counter skincare products if you have sensitive skin like me. I am always on the lookout for herbal skin cream, preferably with turmeric as an ingredient. There are a million treatments in the market for acne but natural ingredients are the safest. Turmeric, with its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, stops bacteria from spreading thus reducing redness and inflammation of the blotch as well. The curcumin in turmeric reduces excess manufacture of melanin; this lightens the scars and keeps your skin blemish-free.
My mom used to make a Kasturi turmeric face pack for my sisters. She used to sit and grind the turmeric and a block of sandalwood; make a paste by adding rosewater to it. She used to apply this thick paste on their faces. They would rinse it off with lukewarm water after 15 minutes.
Ayurvedic Skin Cream
But, I neither have the time or her patience to make a face mask at home. I just reach out for an Ayurvedic skin Cream, off the shelf. My preferred skin cream for all seasons is Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream
The two ingredients in this cream are Sandalwood and Turmeric. Together, both these ancient and traditional ingredients, keep my skin glowing. It essentially helps in nurturing the skin, enhances and tones the skin. You can say goodbye to blemishes and scars and it also keeps skin hydrated during winter. In winters it is best to let the cream work overnight to keep your skin hydrated.
How to use
- Before going to bed, cleanse your face and apply the cream all over your face.
- Leave it overnight
- Rinse off in the morning, preferably with Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base – the Turmeric Wash
I am 57 now, past my menopause, (skin’s natural oils are depleted and crow’s feet start showing) when the skin becomes dry and wrinkled. But my skin is flawless, smooth, soft and supple; again thanks to this cream which I diligently apply every day. We cannot turn back the clock nor stop it but we can slow down the fine lines and wrinkles for sure. I am ready to take on the cold winter months anytime. Are you?
