Ayurvedic A New/Ancient Healing System

These days, Ayurveda is a buzz worthy topic in the beauty world. Which is a little ironic, considering that the science itself has been around for over 5,000 years. A system of natural healing that originated in India, Ayurveda is designed to balance the body through the right diet, routine, and skin-care system

Ayurvedic products are the beauty world’s best-kept secret to date.  Amla [or Indian gooseberry], for example, which is in our face products, has 20 times the amount of vitamin C as an orange, so it’s a powerful antioxidant that can brighten and protect the skin.”

Part of what makes Ayurvedic beauty products so powerful is that all of the ingredients have to actually be edible.  It’s really an inside-out view to health and beauty. We view our products as little elixirs of life—the bottles are literally alive, and thriving with cosmic energy.

Why the recent boom?.  The philosophy aligns with the beliefs of many people, Ayurveda is a sister practice to yoga and it’s really about keeping your body in balance, so why not nurture your skin with a philosophy that nurtures your wellness?”

In my experience, prescription drugs can ‘manage’ skin conditions but cannot offer a long-term cure. Exquis Ultra Moisturizer provides that alternative. ~Hanna Rice

Anyone suffering from dry skin – or skin ailments in general – knows that this is a bedeviling condition. Dermatitis causes considerable discomfort from extreme dryness and itching, and can be quite unsightly as skin becomes raw, scaly or inflamed. The search for solution to this persistent problem can be a long one. Dermatologists often admit that there is not much that can be done to confront conditions like dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema. In my experience, prescription drugs can ‘manage’ skin conditions but cannot offer a long-term cure. This is a frustrating prognosis: patients are left with little choice but to use drugs for extended periods or risk the return of their symptoms. What is needed is alternative that controls symptoms without the adverse side effects that drugs incur. Exquis Ultra Moisturizer provides that alternative.

I noticed a significant improvement in eczema symptoms while using Exquis: the cream immediately calmed irritated skin, and after only a few uses my skin became moister and areas of redness and dryness disappeared. These rapid results were better than any prescription I had tried, not least because Exquis products are plant based, and contains none of the ingredients that carry a risk for harmful side effects. They are worth exploring for anyone who is searching for an alternative method for treating pernicious skin ailments.

Even The Rain…

I recently saw “Even the Rain” starring Gael García Bernal and Luis Tosar. It’s an amazing look at the making of a movie in Boliva through exploitation of the local population, who are in the midst of an uprise against the privatization of their water supply by large multi-nationals. The locals are forced to pay for their water, which the cannot afford. The irony of making their film about about Christopher Columbus’s voyage to the New World and the subjugation of the locals on the backdrop of the current water crisis makes for a very heart-felt concern for this beautiful Bolivian population.

Not a lot of urban free radical skin damage on their beautiful faces; however, it should cause one to pause when you reach for that fancy bottle of imported agua with a pretty label on it. Please be conscious about what you are supporting; your dollars speak loudly.

Water is Earth’s gift and is necessary for survival. It should be given freely, and not capitalized upon.

Our skin is made of about 90% water, so it is absolutely essential to drink plenty of water to maintain the normal functioning of all internal organs including the largest, our skin. Water helps to detoxify and revitalize the body and give us more energy. So, drink plenty of water – at least four sixteen ounce glasses per day.

If you don’t’ like drinking water, try this. Upon awakening, drink a tall glass of water without giving it a second thought. Do this after breakfast, after lunch, and after dinner. Continue this and you will find that you will begin to enjoy it and actually crave it. It worked for me!

Ayurveda means life science, and is a combination of two Sanskrit words “Ayur” means life and “Veda” mean science or knowledge.

Since Ayurveda is a far-reaching holistic approach to wellness, I do not want to sound like an expert by any means, so I would like to talk a bit about Ayurveda for beauty.

When someone says, “You look great”, they, knowingly or not, are referring to your skin. And who doesn’t like to hear that they look great, right? It immediately makes us feel more confident.
