Vedix – Customized Ayurveda

Ayurveda has been India’s legacy as far as we can think of, it has gone been passed on to us through generations and because of its effectiveness more and more people opt for it in their daily life. Be it skincare, haircare or even in terms of lifestyle. With Vedix they carefully examine your requirement depending on your issues, lifestyle and what bit needs the most attention by just asking you a few questions.

Dr. Zeel Gandhi, Expert Ayurvedic Formulator at Vedix then suggests you right products as per Ayurvedic Tridosha Theory. The three doshas are Vata (Air & Ether), Pitta (Fire) and Kapha (Water and Earth).The simple meaning of dosha is ‘defect’, but in Ayurvedic context, a dosha simply defines the weakness or vulnerability of the particular nature of a person. In other words, it maps out ‘what’s most likely to go wrong’ with a person, and the treatment that should follow.

For my Hair: Post my virtual examination i was suggested a 3 step hair regime (oil, shampoo & serum ) care routine for my hair fall situation. All the products are paraben and sulfate free, gentle cleanser that helps maintain pH balance of my scalp and leaves it healthy and rejuvenated, the hair serum is non greasy and absorbs quickly. they also send you a well described card that shows you exactly how to use the products and also a planner to plan your regime for effective results.

the Art of ayurveda with ‘Sadhev’

Sadhev’s concept of Ayurveda is a way of life that brings about a synchrony among body, mind and soul . By elegantly pouring the science of Ayurveda into every creation giving birth to the art of life, art of living – the art of Ayurveda itself.

I love Ayurveda, and the more I inculcate it in my daily life, the more i see the power of it. There is also a sense of satisfaction that i am not using any chemicals, not using products that are harmfully tested and most of coming close to nature but by bit.

SADHEV ROSE WATER

The existence of rose water go way back from queens to Greek goddesses everyone used it, and rankly it is the single most easy to use product accessible to all. It hydrates, is handy, suits all skin types, and mostly helps keep you fresh with just a spray. Sadhev’s Rose Water is a sweet fusion of handpicked centifolia roses and the essence of a 200 year old ancestral wisdom steamed, distilled and bottled.

How I use- I constantly have this in my bag (for a quick spray) or right by my dressing mirror. It’s the first thing I use post cleansing, as rose water is a great toner and helps absorb your skincare routine much better. I also use it post make up to let it all set and give some hydration to my skin for a quick glow.

Sadhev Nalpamaradi Tailam

The ever so beguiling queens from the Pandalam dynasty were believed to illuminate their faces with the potion extracted out of the barks of 4 different trees carefully blended with Turmeric, Sesame and Vetiver. Sadhev’s Nalpamaradi Tailam is a pre shower oil, a blend of essence of 4 tree barks with a 200 year old ancestral wisdom to give the full body a glow.

How i use- I love oils, nothing hydrates a dry skin better. I light some incense sticks and do my own spa ritual at home with this Nalpamaradi Tailam from Sadhev, massage all over the body for 10 minutes and leave it for 15 minutes , I wash it off with some home made ubtan (I recommend not to use soap, unless you have to get dressed and step out), moisturize, wear my satin pajamas and take a relaxing nap.

Sadhev Sunscreen SPF 30

This by far is my favorite product from the Sadhev. As important as it is to use sunscreen, it is exactly that difficult to find the right one. This is the perfect sunscreen for me, the texture is undeniably addictive (it feels like satin and no matter how much rush you are in, I bet you will slow done for this) no white cast, absorbs like magic, non-greasy and an ayurvedic solution to sunscreen. Sadhev’s sunscreen keeps the skin exceptionally tender and supple all through the day. Its age defying essence protects the delicate texture of the skin, reduces fine lines and blemishes and keeps the skin glowing.

How i use- I use it at least twice daily, one post shower (even if i am indoors) second in afternoon once i wash my face and freshen up. I have also substituted it for my regular primer, it is an excellent base for your make up, almost perfect.

Sadhev Aloe Vera And Saffron Gel With Kumkumadi Thailam

Daughter Earth

Daughter Earth, a skincare brand that is close to home and incredibly good. The aroma of its moisturizer on my skin lingers while i type this and its is one of most amazing skincare brand for sensitive skin (mine is both sensitive and combination).

Coming across a brand that is made with a conscience, and doesn’t leave you to choose between natural and high-performance products is rare and . Every product we make is formulated without compromise.

As a skincare brand they went beyond organic, and formulated products with potent wild-harvested botanicals from some of the remotest habitats. What began as a quest for non-toxic skincare led them on a conscious journey to build products that are good for your skin and also deliver maximum results.

Products i Have Tried and Loved

Eternal Youth Phytonutrient Moisturiser – Smells beautiful, just a pea size and enough moisture, i use this in my night time CTM routine (but you can use it during the day as well, as it is equipped with natural SPF that helps combat free radical damage and photo aging) as i love smelling good when i am going to bed. Its rich in antioxidant-rich plant nutrients, gives long-lasting hydration, its lightweight, non-greasy and helps in radiance and youth-preserving treatment.

Eternal Youth Rejuvenating Serum – I love serums, i feel they are a perfect way to add an extra boost to your skin, i make sure to use serums morning and evening. The eternal youth serum is dermatologically tested, 100% active, preservative-free it helps correct skin and enriches skin with antioxidants, flavonoids and nutrients (Vitamins E, C and B). the serum helps skin microcirculation and delivers nutrients to the deeper layers for a rejuvenated and radiant skin. i also use it before make up sometimes and let it rest for 5 minutes, it gives me a nice glow and sets my make up perfectly.

Face Mist – Rose – Face mists are great, they give you instant of freshness, you use it directly, over your make up, while travelling and in your face pack (only if it is 100% natural, like this one) literally whenever and however you need it. A good face mist helps combat dryness and inflammation throughout the day. I never step with out a mist in my bag, especially during summers.

Wild Java Plum Ayurvedic Face Mask– Rich in skin-nourishing bioflavonoids, antioxidants and Vitamin C, Java Plums are nature’s gift to our skin. With the oil-balancing, acne-clearing and complexion-enhancing properties, these black fruits deliver a power punch of nutrition to the skin in the form of a mask. Also a great skin detoxifier. Suitable for all skin types. Make a mushy paste by mixing in floral waters like Rose, and apply a thick layer on your face and neck. Rinse off before it dries up and after rinsing, spritz your face with the rose mist and follow with the rejuvenating serum. This helps seal your skin with all the nutrition and forms a lipid barrier to prevent loss of hydration. Dull Skin or Uneven texture, Acne and dark spots, Uneven oil levels

Antioxidant Lip Balm – We all need lip balms, i can’t count the number of lip balms i have – in my bag, in my office desk, in my car, in my travel kit and one on my bed side.

An Antioxidant lip balm seals and hydrates your lips while also protecting from the harsh UV rays, helps with lip-elasticity and pigmentation on and around the lips. 100% Vegan and Beeswax-free.

Go ‘Natural’ with Just Herbs

IMG_8000

Just Herbs is a brand that signifies simplicity and purity, just like their name. They are an all-natural brand that uses ancient Indian wisdom combined with purest of herbs and plant extracts to create their effective products. Tried and tested, Just Herbs offers a line of pure, bespoke, and Ayurvedic results-driven skincare products. The fact that I like about the brand the most is that they give full ingredients disclosure.


To stay clear of everything your natural skin is not used to
With – Silk splash Neem-Orange Re hydrant Ayurvedic Face Wash
Well it’s the most basic rule, when I wake up in the morning, I don’t even use a face wash, I splash a lot of water when in shower and then spray some rose water and go straight for toner and sunscreen. It the later part if the day when I need to use the facewash. Once post lunch just give a sense of freshness and one once before bed time to clear of all-day creams, pollution and ready for a bed time routine. This face wash from just herbs has Chandan, Honey, Neem and Aloe Vera. Three to four drops of it leaves my skin fresh, its mild and suitable for all skin types. Calendula another important ingredient acts as natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent with sun radiation protective properties.
Goodness of 100 ml at 445

Use sunscreen and stay away from the most common skin problems
With – No Sun Jojoba-Wheatgerm Moisturizing Sun Protection Gel
I am sure there is an entire rule book that says how important sunscreen is, and If you still don’t know why? (I mean how can you not??) let me list out the basics- regular use of sunscreen avoids premature aging, keeps your skin tone even, protects from sunburns freckles and no matter what type of skin you have, if you stay indoors or outdoors, use the SUNSCREEN. I was way tired by number game with SPF’s, I mean what is it with SPF 20, 40 and 50+, I decided to go natural and this one from just herbs is moisturizing sunscreen. Just a few drops and it leaves your skin dewy. It has has ingredients like Shea Butter, Jojoba, Wheatgerm and Grape-seed oil along with Green tea extract and Aloe Vera.

Get rid of the tan, it will leave you looking a shade lighter, fresh and glowing
With – Petalsoft Antitan Rose Face Pack
I use this thrice a week, especially the day I have used make up, I cleanse my face, use this pack until dry, wash it off, splash some rose water followed by Aloe Vera gel and my night moisturizer. I totally love this pack, on days my skin feels dry I add a tad bit of grape juice or honey that further adds glow to my skin. I have grown up seeing ladies in my house use multani mitti, it’s been a blessing throughout my teens. With more things to juggle, full time job, blogging, styling and travelling I really don’t have patience to shop for ingredients, grind them, make a paste and use it every day (call me lazy if you may) This is pack is a real gift, it’s all in there, ready to use, leaving my face rejuvenated, oil free, smooth and fresh.
Goodness of 150 gms at ₹525

Stay fresh on the go
With- Steam Distilled Rose water Facial Mist
Why not when you can? The rose water toner by just herbs is 100% Natural and alcohol free. That is all I needed to pick the bottle up. But let’s give you more, on daily basis we do so many things, we may not have time to apply that soothing aloe vera gel, cucumber on our eyes or rub ice for that fresh glow. But what we can is is use this easy spray on toner and mist, that helps balances skin’s pH, tightens pores and reduces oiliness and most important hydrates and revitalize skin. I carry this in my bag, spray it 2 to 3 times a day, use it in face packs, post face packs, I even use it over my make up just before I step out of the house (I have even sprayed it on my body before people, as it leaves a fantastic aroma of roses)
Goodness of 110ml at ₹445

Take care of your skin early for lasting effects and glowing years
With: Blemfree Anti Blemish Night Cream
I have had blemishes since my teens, I have no idea where they came from and no idea when they will be going. The blemish cream by Just Herbs is enhanced with skin lightening botanicals. This special formulation helps to fade darkened skin patches, sun spots and freckles. I wouldn’t say my blemishes have disappeared, but I really like this product and have been using this for my night routine before moisturizing more like a gel, it has helped me get over pimple marks, sun spots and definitely helped with discoloration a bit. I am going to go on and use it for another month before I come up with a final verdict.
Goodness at 895

Everyone needs an elixir

With- Gotukola Indian Ginseng Rejuvenating Beauty Elixir Facial Serum

I have gifted this product to my mom, and must say she is happy about it. She uses it during bedtime, before her moisturizer. She swears she wakes up with a very refreshed and rejuvenated glow. The multi-tasking Elixir face serum is a synergistic blend of treasured Indian herbs and acts as an excellent botanical replacement for a traditional chemically derived Vitamin C serum. This face serum nourishes and restores a natural glow and youthfulness to tired, ageing and pigmented skin. With my mom raving so much about it, I am going to pick another one on my next visit to the store.
