Facial beauty has always been considered to be one of the most important things – although this notion is being heavily challenged in the modern era, with more and more importance being given to inner health and beauty than external beauty, one cannot deny the joy and happiness of having clear and bright skin.
But having great skin and healthy skin is no longer hard to achieve. In fact, the beauty industry has advanced so much in the last few decades making everything possible.
Cosmetic products, creams, ayurvedic products, ayurvedic creams, and ayurvedic cleansers are all some of the best ways to improve skin quality and bring about natural glow and brightness. Ayurvedic products are always considered more potent and much more effective than cosmetic products as they have safe and effective natural ingredients. They are also very safe for the planet as they are organic.

What are Herbal Skincare Products?
Herbal skincare products are becoming more and more common in the market as there is an increased awareness for natural and organic products amongst young men and women. Natural and herbal products use plant-based ingredients and derivatives and are completely organic and holistic.
They are not only safe for all kinds of skin types but are especially great for those who have sensitivity towards chemical-based cosmetic products. They also have effective natural ingredients that are proven to be more efficient than cosmetic ingredients that are made from chemicals.
In fact, most cosmetic products in the market use herbal ingredients as their key active ingredient but have chemical counterparts for soap base and fragrance and for preservatives. These additional chemicals are what make the product bad for the skin as they can have side effects and cause aging and other skin problems.
Herbal skincare products include items such as the following:
Facial ayurvedic cleansers remove impurities from the skin and make it bright and beautiful. Unlike the cosmetic term ‘cleanser’ which is often used for a face wash, Ayurvedic cleanser is more of an ointment or a cream that helps in cleansing the skin from dirt, infections, marks, and other skin problems and makes it spotless, radiant, and bright.
Ayurvedic cleansers contain herbal ingredients such as Frankincense, Aloe Vera, Saffron, Indian Madder, Licorice, and/or Lotus extracts. All of these ingredients make the cleansers very effective as each one of them has special features that are extremely good for the skin.
Some help in clearing the skin of marks, spots, and infections whereas some of the ingredients make the skin brighter, clearer, and more radiant from within.
Facial creams are used to moisturize the skin and make the skin nourished with key ingredients. The most used active ingredients in an ayurvedic facial cream are Saffron and lotus extract.
Saffron is one of the most effective skin brightening agents and anti-aging ingredients that help in making the skin spotless and radiant whereas lotus extracts help in minimizing spots, pigmentation, fighting premature aging, and bringing a natural glow to the skin.
Facial Masks or Lepams
A facial mask or a lepam is used less frequently than a facial cleanser or a cream. It is a concentrated source of skin nourishment that can be applied to the face and then washed off when it is dry. A face mask consists of many ayurvedic ingredients in a concentrated form that can nourish the skin from within and makes it bright and beautiful.
