Being a huge fan of Ayurveda, I always keep my eyes open for ayurvedic beauty and skin care products. Still, I believe that when it comes to giving a tag of best skincare products, everyone has different needs based on their skin conditions and types. Hence, what works for you may not work for me! Therefore, the only way to find the most suitable product for your skin is by understanding your skin type and then looking for ingredients that would work for that skin type.

Understand your skin type to choose the right skincare product

My skin type is DRY and now, as I am in my thirties, I have already started to develop fine lines and black spots! We all know that ageing is unavoidable and with time everyone gets those wrinkles and age spots. Our skin loses its glow and charm as we age.

So, since last few years, my focus has been completely on delaying the signs of aging, using some skincare products. I tried and tested expensive anti-ageing products and some home remedies. Unfortunately, none of those so called ‘miraculous creams and lotions’ could provide me satisfactory results!

I was looking for Ayurvedic formula based anti-aging products that could work directly on fine lines and wrinkles, decrease hyper-pigmentation, and would enhance my skin quality.

After going through a beauty blog, I learnt that Elastin and Collagen are crucial components for our skin in order to keep it youthful.

Elastin makes our skin soft and supple while Collagen makes it firm and tight. As we reach our thirties, both Elastin and Collagen production starts to slow down, and these changes make our skin look dull, wrinkly and lifeless.

In some cases (like mine), these skin ageing signs may crop up way too early, making one look older than one’s real age. I also found out that moisture in our skin plays an important role in keeping it young and fresh looking. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural substance in the skin which maintains the skin moisture; but in older age, our ability to produce this component starts decreasing, which makes our skin dry and rough.

GOOD NEWS is that the early signs of ageing can be treated with a combination of products, diet and lifestyle changes.

So, I was looking out for ayurvedic formula based anti-aging products that could work directly on fine lines and wrinkles, decrease hyper-pigmentation, and would heal the quality and texture of my skin.

 About a year ago, one of my Ayurvedic practitioner friends recommended me an anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cream from Blue Nectar. Ever since, I’ve been using it.

Anti-wrinkle Cream by Blue Nectar

A holistic approach is very important for treating fine lines, age spots and pigmentation.  Based on this philosophy, Blue nectar has set a benchmark when it comes to anti-aging products. They have got a variety of anti-aging and anti-wrinkle products. Moreover, their skin care range is purely organic, which is why it is highly recommended by skincare experts.

Blue nectar products are based on extensive research and Ayurvedic principles. It fights with signs of age spots and wrinkles so efficiently that Blue nectar anti aging cream has now become a permanent part of my daily anti-aging regime.

It is important to use natural products that are suitable for your skin type, skin colour and skin problems. Dry, flaky skin was always a big concern for me and Blue Nectar anti ageing cream is a product which not only solved my dry skin problem but also reduced the early signs of ageing.

They have a huge range of skincare products, so it took me a while to decide which cream would work for my skin type. After getting satisfactory results from this product, I bought another Blue Nectar rejuvenating and brightening ayurvedic formula based cream, which is also an anti-ageing cream.

This cream solves two purposes, it help fight early signs of aging by promoting cell re-generation and it also gives you a lighter skin tone. Within few days of regular use, I noticed my skin had become soft, supple and the depth of fine lines got reduced significantly.

 Blue Nectar Sandalwood Cream

The main ingredients of this Ayurvedic formulation are Methi, Manjistha, Sandalwood. Many Ayurveda experts and skincare specialist often recommend Sandalwood and Manjistha based products for treating dark spots and uneven patchy skin tones.

It is obvious that my dry skin needs extra moisturisation, and this cream also works as an excellent moisturizer for my face. The best part is that Blue Nectar Ayurvedic skin cream helps me keep my skin healthy and makes it shine as if I had a facial while sleeping.

After my face cleansing regime, I take a small quantity of this night cream and apply it all over my face and neck area. After massaging the face with the cream for 2-3 minutes, it gets absorbed completely, leaving my skin hydrated, smooth and radiant.

Frankly speaking, I was not expecting any miracle from an Ayurvedic anti-aging cream in a span of just few months. But to my surprise, it gave me great results in a short period of time.

As mentioned earlier, Blue Nectar anti-aging products are enriched with high quality natural ingredients, so they do not cause any side effects, allergy or skin irritation. However, the time it takes to show some visible result may vary depending on your skin conditions.

Kama Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic face cream is yet another wonderful product that I tried from a highly trusted ayurvedic brand called Kama Ayurveda. It contains all natural ingredients like coconut milk, sesame oil, cardamom, aloe-vera, and flower extracts. It is a rich face cream that is suitable for dry or normal skin. My younger sister swears by Kama Eladi Hydrating Ayurvedic face cream as it has given satisfactory results for her dull and dehydrated skin.

While looking for a solution to haul the ageing process, I also read about the extraordinary properties of Kumkumadi oil and how it helps in keeping our skin young and radiant. Being a beauty enthusiast, I couldn’t resist myself from buying a bottle of Kumkumadi oil. I have been using this Kumkumadi oil regularly since last few weeks and I totally love its amazing effects on my skin.

Kumkumadi Tailam by Blue Nectar

Kumkumadi Tailam has been a beauty secret of many queens and princess due to its ability to illuminate complexion and rejuvenate dull skin. This is a unique combination of oils and natural ingredients which make your skin look youthful and glowing.

The best way to get maximum benefits from this oil is a regular massage for few minutes. I take about 5-6 drops of Kumkumadi oil and apply it on my face. (You can use less amount of oil if you have oily skin.) Then, I gently massage the face in upward strokes for 5 minutes. I figured out that the best time to apply this oil is just before going to bed so that my skin gets enough time to reap all the benefits and by morning my skin feels so soft, supple and healthy.

After few weeks of regular use of Kumkumadi Night Serum, I can say with confidence, that it is an absolutely brilliant skincare product for aging skin. It nourishes my dry skin very well and makes it look youthful and radiant. It is high time every healthy skin enthusiast should give it a try.
