Best natural beauty products for Indian skin.

I don’t want to jinx it, but I am blessed with pretty healthy skin except for a few unwanted visitors in the form of red tiny manholes, waiting to erupt, from time to time and yes, dark circles. Now that I actually think, my skin isn’t all that good! But, I think I can live with it. I do experiment with a lot of stuff on my skin, but mostly organic and natural ingredients. Coconut oil, aloe-vera gel and raw potato juice is what suits my skin. Although, too much of coconut oil does invite the acne.

This is me without a lot of make-up.

So I wanted to share a few of the products that I have used over time, which has actually yielded very very good result! And I have researched for hours before getting them in my hand and applying them on my skin. But remember to do a patch test before you start using any of these, regularly.

For Tan : You have got to believe me when I say that I have been to Goa ten times already and every time I return with a horrible tan. I love the beach and love the sun so I really don’t care, when I am there but I end up looking like a recently waxed orangutan(thanks to the orangish-brown hair on my head). There are three major things which will help you face this minor problem of a tan-beyond-recognition.

  • Potato : Just grate a whole potato( with or without skin, doesn’t matter), squeeze out the juice and apply it all over your face and hands and wherever you are tanned. Do it thrice a week and bid adieu to the dark layer in a week’s time.
  • Lotus Face Pack : This one is a saviour. Since the last three years I use this face pack whenever the need arises and it has never failed me.
  • Aloe vera : My another go-to beauty product is aloe vera gel. One big leaf is enough to last a week. You might feel a slight irritation when you apply it, but that’s okay. It just shows that the gel is working it’s magic 😉

For cleansing : 

  • Micellar water : I started using the Micellar water by Boots and it has been quite a good experience till now. Best thing about it is, you can use it to remove the eye make-up as well.
  • Aloe Vera : Take a generous amount of aloe vera gel in your palm and gently rub it all over your face. Leave it for a while and wash it off. It works!
  • Coconut Oil : Avoid this if you have oily skin. Otherwise just use cold-pressed coconut oil as a cleanser and wash it off. You can see the healthy glow, the next day when you wake up.

For toning :

Vetiver Water : It’ s slightly over-priced but vetiver water actually surprised me with it’s versatility. It’s been three months since I started using it and it has been really helpful. Rose water tends to make my skin a little oily but vetiver water is just the right thing for that healthy glow.

I generally do not apply a lot of make-up on my face except the eyes and lips. Just a bit of concealer under my eyes and this toner is my daily schedule and I have had no complaints till now.

Night Ritual : 

Kumkumadi Tailam : So, I saw Mira Rajput talk about the benefits of using kumkumadi on skin and I ordered it the very next day to try it and luckily, she was right. I have normal-to-oily skin, so I avoid applying the oil on my T-zone. It is one miracle oil which has already started working on the dark circles, dark patches, dry patches and even the slight hint of wrinkles around my eyes.
