We, the women, spend a lot of money on choosing the right skin care product to include in our day and night care routines. I want to share with you the natural ayurvedic oils that I personally use to make sure I take proper care of my skin and hair.
For the first time when I used it after a lot of research on the internet, I just wanted to observe how it feels on my skin and what reaction it gives after removal. I really liked the oils that I mentioned below after a week’s use. My suggestion for you is to maintain consistency in anything that you use and observe the results. Because they are natural oils, they take time to bring any difference that you expect. Be patient and check out these products.
1. Nalapamaradi Thailam:
This is a product which should be included as part of your daycare routine. The base oil used to prepare this thailam can be coconut oil or sesame oil. Turmeric and Sandalwood are active ingredients in the oil which helps to reduce the suntan and brightens the skin.
This can be applied on the face as well as anywhere on the body. This is not only used to remove the suntan but also to treat skin diseases like scabies, eczema, dermatitis or any other disease in which itching is the main concern. It treats skin allergies effectively as it has anti-fungal properties in it. This is also an antioxidant which reduces the aging symptoms on the skin. It can be used as part of the bridal treatment. It is potential in treating issues like dark circles, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. This can also be used to remove makeup. Just give it a try.
Apply 3-4 drops evenly on the face and massage it into skin. Leave it for 20-30 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water and use a mild cleanser to remove the oil traces. You can also use a spoonful of besan flour with a few drops of rose water to remove it and then wash off with water.
If you have oily skin or if you think pimples pop up because of using this, use thrice a week. Else, you can use every day as part of your morning routine. I apply it before shower and use besan flour to clear it and then continue my shower.
Extracted from saffron, kumkumadi thailam is an ayurvedic oil that lightens the skin complexion and treats pigmentation. It repairs and rejuvenates skin like no other. If your skin requires moisture, look no further than this oil.
You can make it the last step of your night skincare routine or the only product that you apply on your face. Coconut oil is generally the base oil or sesame oil can also be used. Ingredients like manjishta, vetiver and sandalwood helps in skin lightening and calms down the acne. It is generally ideal for face massages which reverses the damage caused by sun.
Apply 3-4 drops of the oil all over the face with the fingertips and leave it overnight. Wash your face with water and pat dry in the morning. Do not over use it if you have oily skin. Use twice a week.
3. Bringamalakadi Thailam:
It is a medicated ayurvedic oil used to reduce the hair fall and treat baldness. It is effective for treating the premature greying of hair and also helpful in relieving the stress after a tight work schedule or continuous reading.
If coconut oil is the base, this is called bringamalakadi keera thailam. Let it sit on the scalp for at least 30 minutes before washing the hair. You can keep it much longer for effective results but will have to wash it for 2 rounds. Make sure not to wash your hair with hot water, use only luke warm water. Prefer using natural ways of cleansing your hair rather than using high pH level shampoo.
So these are the oils I regularly use and I have had no problem with them for a few months now. These oils did make a noticeable change in the appearance of my skin and hair and that’s the reason I wanted to share with you guys about these products
Any authentic brand for these oils should work, but I ordered from an online site which ships from Kerala, India because I thought these medicated oils are made and formulated naturally by the people of Kerala. Here’s the site: https://shop.vaidyaratnammooss.com/
