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

Mughal empress Nur Jahan’s timeless beauty was the constant source of whispered envy in the royal corridors. ‘The light of the world’ as her name suggests was truly a woman of intoxicating loveliness who believed in traditional Persian beauty recipes to keep her skin sensual and glowing. Her daily regimen involved the use of rich ingredients like Saffron and the Green Aloe Vera that grew in her royal gardens.

How i Use : I use it every time I have cleansed my face or post a session of face packs. I also use it intensely during summers to clam any irritation on my skin.

Sadhev Kumkumadi Tailam

Saffron was a treasured beauty secret used by Rani Samyukta, Prithiviraj Chauhan’s queen who was known for her intoxicating beauty.  Legend has tales of the queen secretly sourcing a rich and rare ingredient from the valleys of Kashmir.

It is a bottle of indulgence that carefully repairs and restores dry and rough patches thereby gently hydrating and polishing the skin, leaving it sensually luminous, exceptionally smooth and incredibly desirable. Almond nuts rich in vitamin E nourishes and softens the skin. It also acts as an exceptional anti-ageing agent.

Hey everyone, on world environment day i am sharing my 10 favorite, organic beauty brands. Call them chemical free beauty products, sustainable skincare products or natural skincare products, these are brands that follow age old Indian tradition of skincare and Ayurveda, and have products that give visible results from the first use.

SkinYoga : The first ever chemical free, 100% natural luxury skincare brand that I have ever used, and 5 years later some of its products have a permanent place in my skincare regime. This made in India brand is ab absolute delight that shows results in first use.  

Products Tried & Loved: Absolutely obsessed with their hydrating ‘Coffee Scrub’, I use it thrice a week for body, while for face I stick to ‘Sandalwood Walnut Scrub that is great for dry skin, hydrates and improves skin texture. The antioxidants found in walnuts regenerates skin and elasticity. Another favorite from the brand is their ‘Almond Orange Face Scrub’ that works wonders to cleanse and repair skin, which is very mild and great f you have a sensitive / combination skin.  

Kama Ayurveda: This Indian brand needs no introduction. It has been my go-to skincare brand for ubtans, face mist and oils. 

Products Tried & Loved: Two constant ubtans from Kama Ayurveda I keep restocking are ‘Suvarna haldi chandan face pack‘ and ‘nimrah anti acne face pack‘ that I use weekly once. Another daily use ubtan is ‘Mridul soap free face cleanser’, a 5 minutes quick fix that cleanses my skin and is so gentle it can be used daily. In oils I love their ‘Organic neem oil’, ‘Bringadi intensive hair treatment oil‘ and ‘Jwalini retexturising skin treatment oil‘, I switch between them depending on what my scalp and skin needs in different seasons. ‘Pure rose water‘ face mists by Kama is something I always carry in my bag. 

 Just Herbs – An entire range of goodness comes from this brand, from skincare to hair care, ubtans to natural make up products.  

Products Tried & Loved– I absolutely love their ‘Unprocessed Virgin Coconut Oil’ it is multipurpose, I use it for my hair, as a moisturizer for body, to remove make up, it is one of the products, I definitely carry while travelling, because it saves space as it can be used in so many ways. I am also using their ‘Nosun Moisturising Gel’, that has sunscreen benefits, light-weight, perfect for my sensitive and combination skin, it is so good that it can be used as a diaper rash cream for babies.  Recently I got their Elixir Serum’ pea size of this herbal face serum   helps brightening and nourishing the skin and reducing pigmentation. 

Pahadi Local– I came across this brand at a skincare work shop with Good Earth in Hyderabad. The brand in its small range of products imbibes luxury in simplicity. Made in Himalayas the brand offers oils, face packs, organic honey and teas.  

Products Tried & Loved : I use their ‘Gutti ka tel’  apricot kernel oil, rich in vitamin A, E and C it is a multipurpose oil made traditionally and used as face oil, body moisturizer,  treating skin allergies, reducing joint pain and safe for children as well.

picsart_06-05-122549018123185027872.jpg

Daughter Earth : This vegan, 100% botanical brand, is special because it is from my own city- Hyderabad.

Forest Essentials – one of the oldest luxury skincare brand of India needs to Introduction, when i initially started using the products from forest essentials it was merely for its beautiful aromas, but as i hit my late 20’s and importance of skin care hit me i focused on ingredients and what is best for my skin.

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.
Goodness of 100 ml at ₹645

1

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.

Goodness of 15 ml at ₹1,125

In Conversation With Elton Fernandez

How would you describe yourself?

I am very hard working and ambitious, they call me a potty mouth or a gutter mouth because I have a very bad sense of humor and I have skill which is to take anything, be it anything about mom, dad, hope, lunch, dinner be it anything I can make it about sex, that’s why the call me one track potty mouth. And I like that, I don’t fight it and I like style and grooming.

Since how long have you been in associated with makeup?

It’s been about fourteen and a half years and the journey has been Worthwhile and Incredible; life has been great.

What do you enjoy the most about your work?

I enjoy the fact and it’s a known fact that the entertainment or the beauty of this industry matures you at a pace that is 10 times faster than a regular, because you interact with so many different kind of people and these are all people fluctuating at a higher frequency, they are just more evolved in the way they live, they work so that experience and exchange of knowledge and idea is what I enjoy

For me you are more of an influencer, with your YouTube channel and workshops you teach and inspire so many people…

I think like a child, You know I have said this in some interview also that the two things that I wished for when I would really kneel down and pray was to have a daughter, I don’t know why but as a child I knew that I would want to grow up and have a daughter and not a son and I knew that I would want her to be the women that would be inspirational and strong. And the second thing is that I wanted to be fairer and taller that’s because people made me feel that brown is not nice and I was the darkest member of my family and my grandmother for some reason couldn’t take it, she used to call me blacky, which I thought was so rude. You know when you are a child it may be funny but when you grow up with that insecurity where all my cousins had light skin, light hair and I am dark but today I feel like I need to be the champion of my own cause, because I have learned a lot about myself.

What is the biggest challenge you faced so far?

We live in a number driven world and I find it hard accumulating these numbers being out and proud gay in a country like India, so every time I post something that’s homosexual or even remotely sexual for that matter, I lose about 100 followers, like this morning I posted a pride picture on Instagram supporting gay pride, my followers dropped from 36.7 to 36.6. so I know that people are just close minded and even on YouTube for that matter getting numbers is bit difficult because I think I am a man and I am not just somebody sitting in my bedroom and painting my face, I am doing it in a professional way so I think it’s difficult. If I was a pretty girl she would have had more followers that is something I don’t understand.

As today’s women are busier than ever, what is the easiest way from going morning to evening look?

The beauty of Indian women is brown skin and a brown canvas goes with anything, any colour. Be it brown eyes, black hair, dark brows , dark lashes any colour goes, we can put brown eye shadow or blue eye shadow, we are not limited. Like people with dark complexion can wear bold end colours, they wear solid pigment and it looks incredible. But we Indians, with our brown skin can wear any colour; so I recommend Indian women to ditch their black kajal and go for coloured kajal in the day. Like you wear purple, brown, plum and in the evening load up a bit. You have done wing liner and you have done it in black which is great but what if you did it with a blue going into a black or vive-versa or a blue under a black and in the night follow it on the underside and you can add colour, a kajal- a thick Shenaz Hussain like line and you are ready to rock.

Tell me few things every that every girl or women can have, like a go to kit.

I would say get a great skin care regime, it is your ultimate makeup.  Prep and hydrate your skin, I would suggest a hydrating gel by ‘Organic Harvest’. It is a moisturizer in a gel form, it also is a little sticky which works for me and helps me stick my make up better. I also like the sunscreen gel again from organic harvest. The other would be a spf15 which is good for dark skin. In spf people think that the higher the number the more the protection, that’s false. The lighter the number the more it applies to darker skin. A spf15 or 20 is really perfect for someone who is really dark. If you are light skinned like a Kashmiri then you would need an spf 20. For foundation that is quick, economical is ‘Fit me by Maybelline’ , then I would say get a lip and cheek stain any company ,it brings the rawness under the eyes and then an eyelash curler and a mascara and if you like something light then use a light one but if you want something dramatic then lash sensational mascara by Maybelline is nice and then use a brow pencil or a powder, just to fill in the gaps. I would like to keep one or two colored lipsticks which are long wearing so that you don’t have to keep doing the touch up and one that is boom pop up colour like a bold red or a bold pink  or orange, on darker skin orange looks good and I love Maybelline . A gloss maybe, I like glosses it’s fun and not to forget a bronzer and a high lighter.  People don’t understand that shadow is as important as light. So get shadow and get high lighter and push in certain areas of your face and highlighter adds the glow for Instagram, as we are the Insta generation

Tell me the brands that are good for Indian skin? And also how important to get the right shade of foundation?

A women should try it on her jawline, apply it there rub it back and forth for few times, if it is making you look fairer and you really have to make it rub hard then it is the wrong color. Don’t go unnecessary shades lighter. All brands make shades now-a-days.

You have worked with so many people, celebs so have you ever had that bizarre moment or any kind of moment when you were like this needs to be fixed?

Brows mostly because most of them are over grown or over scissors or over plucked that I would say to little grow up and add a little softness. I would say stop over grooming and open up the gap in between and don’t let it join.

If you would like to collaborate with someone to come with your own make up line who would it be –I would love to collaborate with Maybelline, I love the team they are young and driving, the take my feedback on and the foreign team is also so nice. But I would like to build a brand of my own and see my name on the box.

So what would be your signature for that – A bronzer that works as a highlighter for our skin. For me highlighter shouldn’t be something of whitish colour it can be pinky bronze stoned highlighter bronzer. Glow while you contour

Who is your all-time favorite muse – Kate Beckinsale, because I think she is a strong women and her personality is so elastic and look at the various hats she is wearing. She could be so many people while she is just kate.

One celeb personality you kill to have on your chair – Kate Beckinsale, a lot of people abroad think that she isn’t beautiful but I find her stunning…

Did you ever lose your temper on a celeb or anyone– Yes I did, but I never showed it. At times I did shown it also, it was just clashing of strong personalities. It’s not important how you fall but how you rise back, so if you two can agree to disagree and can allow each other’s opinion and you can agree that it was fun and lets hug it out. I am happy from my journey, its maturity. If I was the same catholic boy I wouldn’t never experience things and I would be small minded and get offended by every little thing or people that they say to me and I would be too sensitive.

What is your opinion on regrets– I don’t have any, sometimes may I would really regret hooking up with someone I dint enjoy  just for pity thing or whatever  because that happens in gay culture. It is very much about instant gratification which is about getting on an app, getting her are rocks off and getting on with life. It could be any one someone who met 15 min before, or someone with whom with you chatted for 2 days or somebody whom you bumped into the streets some day.so in that sense sometimes you do regret it, but nothing else

Are you single- I am dating a wonderful man, but I am still available- it’s a consensual non monogamous relationship, so we agree that love doesn’t have to be that you constantly need to protect. It just stays anyway.

What are the 5 things you never leave home without-My underwear, my brow pencil, my hair extension, my self-respect and just an open mind.

Nail Ishq, Hyderabad

Everyone loves a good pamper session, and when it can give you a longer result it makes every penny spent worth it.

For ages women have loved to groom themselves, proper hair, skin and ofcourse nails. Nails are as important to us as much as the skin itself. Nothing speaks sophistication as much as well done nails.

Perfectly manicured nails and feet talk about an individual much better than half chipped nails or unmanicured (it may not be a word but it is definitely is an expression) hand and feet.

Comes to the rescue ‘ Nail Ishq’ Hyderabad. Tucked away in the corner of a dessert shop this Nail Parlour is my new favourite in town. They are the most pocket friendly Nail service in Hyderabad. They may not offer you a lavish manicure pedicure treatment but they offer skills to turn your nails into ones of diva.

From Gel Nail paint to Extensions, Metallic magic to Instagramable Nail Art they do it all.

I had two sessions with them, my experinace has been really good. The staff is well trained and know what they are doing. Show them a picture and they will excitedly paint your nails away. The quality of products are excellent and my nails stayed as new as it was when i got it done for almost 3 weeks.

However because the place is compact i would recommend you visit them only on appointment.

There is an endless range of skin products for all skin types at the new The New Kama Ayurveda Store in Hyderabad

 Spread over 800 sq. ft., the store’s high façade jalousie shutters, chequerboard marble flooring and teak and rattan cabinetry reflect the trademark aesthetic of Kama’s flagship store. Ornate brass finials, along with iron shelves, dot the ivory-hued brick walls, their minimalistic simplicity evoking a luxurious sanctuary of calm.  The unique design sensibility is the soul of the brand and the ‘Indian Apothecary’ feel has garnered a loyal cult following for Kama Ayurveda. top lifestyleblogger in hyderabad

The means no artificial colours, artificial fragrances, petrochemicals, parabens, urea, propylene glycol or other harmful additives. The product packaging is good as the products itself, I have been an avid user of Kama products and this is one brand that I have always bought refills for, especially their rose water toner.

Perfect for all seasons and skintype, Kama products are part of my daily ritual

IMG_4887I got a chance to try their increasingly popular new launches, that include an All Natural Makeup Remover, an Anti-Acne Cleansing Foam, and a special Cleanser-Day Cream duo for sensitive skin. I love how Kama offers products that are gentle, efficient and rooted in the ancient science of Ayurveda.
