Avocado contains high levels of Vitamin E, as well as potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients which can nourish and moisturize your skin. The oleic acid also promotes collagen production, which helps grow new skin. This accelerates the healing process, helping with issues like sunburn.
Rose hip oil has a superstar nutrient profile and is very high in vitamins (especially vitamin C), antioxidants and minerals. These vitamins and healing and anti-inflammatory fatty acids deliver therapeutic actions including: skin regeneration and rejuvenation, scar healing, reduces hyperpigmentation, supports burn healing, prevents premature aging, moisturizes and aids in eczema and psoriasis.
Amla is rich in antioxidants and contains high amounts of vitamin C and tannins which simultaneously brighten, soften and improve overall skin quality while tightening pores and having a firming effect.
Galangal is high in antioxidants that can protect the skin from premature ageing, help rid toxins from the body and improve blood circulation. Boosting circulation causes the release of extra nutrients for skin tissue, preventing the formation of free radicals that damage the skin, and maintain skin youthfulness. Galangal helps revitalize and brighten the skin and may reduce the formation of acne by cleaning bacteria from the skin.
Cardamom has antibacterial properties that assist in healing breakouts and also acts as a skin purifier by clearing out blemishes. It helps even skin tone and also can improve your skin complexion. Energetically, Ayurveda describes Cardamom as sweet, pungent, heating and moisturising.
Antioxidant rich adaptogen which reduces signs of skin aging. Contains the antioxidant glabridin and licochalcone A. These antioxidants both have powerful anti-aging, pigmentation fighting, and skin-soothing properties. Potent anti-inflammatory found in liquorice may assist in the treatment of skin disorders like rosacea and eczema.
Ayurveda has long history of using the energy properties of crystals and precious stones for balance. It is thought Amethyst helps to relieve stress and promote higher state of thinking.
