If there’s one thing that can be a hassle for us ladies it’s finding the right skincare product. Think about it. One wrong move and the next thing you know, you have a face full of bumps! On the other hand, the world of natural skincare can be confusing as hell. Tonnes of brands label their products ‘non-toxic’ or ‘100% natural’ but in reality, those terms aren’t used honestly!
As shocking as it may sound, that doesn’t mean everything that’s labelled that way is a fake – it just means that as consumers, you need to know and study the skincare stuff you’re buying, even the organic, natural ones. If you’re in search of natural products to treat your skin, especially if you have acne, then we’ve got news for you!
Introducing Samskara Naturals. Samskara is a local beauty brand that promotes the use of pure, Ayurvedic skincare products to not just enhance your appearance but also preserve your inherent attractiveness. All of the goods are carefully curated and handmade with love because the creator is passionate about making chemical-free products for all those who seek a natural way to treat their skin.
The magnificent lady behind this amazing product is Miss Jhayalakhshmi, a skincare aficionado and up-and-coming beauty businesswoman who’s on and about “organic,” and “chemical-free” skincare products. This inspiring young lady started the business amid the pandemic and is aiming to reach even greater heights.
How It Came To Be
Initially, Jhaya started having terrible breakouts out of nowhere. It got so bad that she had to try out facials and lasers just to keep her pesky acne under control. If there’s one thing about having terrible breakouts it’s that they just mess with your confidence and you would do anything to cover up those bumps. As for Jhaya, she spent a lot of money on cosmetics, concealers, foundations, colour correctors and other beauty products, which didn’t really help her skin condition.
Going through this nasty pain, Jhaya’s mum then approached her to try applying some turmeric (not the type you use for cooking!). Fun fact here: Back in those days, turmeric was the prime beauty product for Indians. It not only helps with skin complexion, but was used for medicinal purposes too. Jhaya then regularly went to the Indian provision shop and grabbed anything that was labelled ‘natural’ or ‘organic’. At one point, Jhaya thought to herself, what if she curated something for herself, made from natural ingredients.
With lots of research and trial and error, voila, SAMSKARA was born!
Wide Range of Products
Now, that’s just the beginning. Wait till you hear more about the products Samskara has to offer!
Samskara offers a wide range of organic skincare products. Each product is designed specifically to treat normal and problematic skin. Samskara creates micro-batched, hand-crafted products for problematic as well as normal skin. Hand-poured in its purest and most potent form, each pack is made with pure love and devotion. Samskara wishes to provide refined products rooted in high-quality ingredients that have healed skin conditions around the world for centuries; sans the man-made, or lab-made ingredients.
First up is their bestseller, TAARA. Samskara has sold over 3000 and is still counting packs online and offline. This natural, powder face mask formula delivers the perfect cell renewal formula – feeding your skin with powerful antioxidants, minerals, and phytonutrients to balance your skin without stripping moisture and creating an unbelievable glow while diminishing texture after just one use.
This amazing powder face mask is infused with:
- Pure sandalwood
- Red lentils
- Multani metti
- Wild turmeric
- Pure kaolin clay
And of course, each of these natural ingredients comes with a benefit of its own. To use, mix 2 tablespoons of TAARA’s face pack with cold distilled water. Apply the mixture evenly on the face and neck, and let it sit for about 25 minutes. To rinse, dampen the skin and wash off in a gentle circular movement. This face pack will leave you with incredibly bright, even, texture-free skin. TAARA’s incredible formula will also tighten pores, get rid of dull skin, deal with texture issues and lift and fade hyperpigmentation and will leave you with a head-turning glow.
Next up is their series of clay masks that consist of beetroot, orange peel and neem. You can purchase it as a set or individually depending on your skin needs. To use the mask, create a paste by adding enough water and generously apply to the face except the eye area. Let is sit for a good 20 minutes. To rinse, use a washcloth with warm water, followed by a rinse of cool water.
Beetroot and Kaolin Glow Boosting Clay Mask
Want a glowing, pink complexion? Then give the beetroot clay mask a try. Samskara’s Beetroot and Kaolin Glow Boosting Clay Mask is a collagen-producing, anti inflammatory, antimicrobial and hyperpigmentation fading mask. Applying beetroot extract to your face will give you pink cheeks and a natural blush. Additionally, it is unquestionably a safer option than cosmetics containing dangerous chemicals. Vitamin C, iron, phosphorus and other minerals found in beets stop skin discoloration and thus, give you a fairer complexion. Plus point here is that you can use it as a lipmask too!
Orange Peel and Kaolin Restorative Clay Mask
Samskara’s Orange Peel and Kaolin Restorative Clay Mask helps in cell regeneration, brightening and regulates oil production. The peel is excellent for treating acne and greasy skin since it has anti-bacterial and anti-microbial qualities. Additionally, it has skin-brightening properties and works wonderfully on facial scars. Orange peel face packs can be used as a face cleanser to leave the skin feeling and looking fresh, in addition to their apparent therapeutic benefits. What’s more intriguing is that when the peel is utilized to make a complex face pack, its astringent and antioxidant qualities are unaffected. We frequently discard orange peels without realizing that they are more valuable than trash. Orange peel can hydrate the skin and regenerate dead skin cells. It is therefore a fantastic and natural skincare option for everyone. And yes, they do prepare their orange peel powder from scratch.
Neem and Pudina Calming Clay Mask
We are all aware of the incredible health advantages neem leaves offer, therefore if there is one item to include in your skincare regimen, it should be Samskara’s Neem and Pudina Calming Clay Mask. Neem has a lot of advantages for your hair and skin. It serves as a crucial ingredient in a variety of cosmetic products due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant capabilities. You’ll be shocked to learn that neem eliminates blemish-causing germs over time, clearing up blemishes, blackheads, texture, and eczema. A real saviour for skin that is prone to acne.
Speaking to Jhaya, we wondered if she has anything new brewing. Of course she said yes! I mean, Indians always have a plethora of beauty tricks up their sleeves. According to Jhaya, she is planning to expand to create more products in the future, and as we speak, she’s currently working on a few. But due to shipping issues, there might be some delays.
While the new stuff is brewing, why not get yourself some of these amazing, natural products to include in your skincare routine! Just like every other skincare product, the key to achieve healthy, supple skin is consistency.
