The sun has always been a prime offender against the skin. Solar radiation is a factor in the breakdown of collagen and elastin, which leads to premature aging and wrinkles. Summer heat aggravates “Pitta” in general, leading to skin sensitivity and sebaceous secretions.
In general, sensitive skin types (Pitta) tend to turn red rather than tan in the sun, and also develop freckles. Dry (Vata) and Oily (Kapha) skin types both tan easily. Nevertheless, nothing ages the skin more quickly than a sunburn, so individuals of every skin type should take precautions to protect themselves from the sun.
Bindi has formulated skin products especially for Summer or Pitta Dosha - the Pitta face care trio consisting of face cleanser, moisturizer and essential oil, massage oils, masks and more.
Pratima who has formulated these product has these following tips:-
- Sesame and Neem Oil are excellent natural sunscreens, according to Ayurveda.
- After sunbathing, take a cool bath, adding a few drops rose, sandalwood essence to the water.
- Massage damp body with Bindi’s Pitta Body Oil.
- To treat sunburned skin, rub on either crushed cucumber, cucumber juice, aloe vera juice, an infusion of elderflower and chamomile, or cold buttermilk.
BINDI products are based on the ancient principles of Ayurveda - the original healing science of India. Ayurvedic wisdom holds that providing the skin with the purest nourishment possible not only allows for total self-correction of the skin, but also has profound healing effect on the entire person.
