What makes saffron so special?
If you’re wondering what all the fuss is about, we’re here to tell you that there’s a good reason for it. For one, it is the most expensive spice in the world. This is because the plant blooms during only one week in the whole year during which the flowers need to be picked and dried by hand. It takes about 150 flowers of harvested saffron to obtain a single gram of the spice.
How is saffron beneficial for one’s skin?
The benefits of saffron have been common parlance in Ayurveda and beauty rituals for aeons. A reliable brightening agent, kesar’s healing properties make it one of the most sought-after ingredients in skincare recipes. Whether you’re dealing with a stubborn tan or wish to give your skin a natural boost, saffron can easily be your go-to beauty agent.
Instead of trying to make a face-pack that is a one-time application, we prefer to incorporate kesar into our very basic cleansing and moisturising routine every day.
How to get glowing skin with saffron
Step 1: Cleansing
Start by cleansing your face with the Ayush Natural Fairness Saffron Face Wash. Made of kesar and kumkumadi tailam (a unique blend of 16 herbs and oils) it helps to reduce dullness, brighten skin tone and give your skin a natural glow.
Step 2: Moisturising
After patting your skin dry, follow this up with a gentle face and neck massage with the Ayush Natural Fairness Face Cream. Apart from kesar and kumkumadi tailam, it also has herbs like lodhra, ushira and neeloptal that soothe skin and manjishtha and padmakashtha that speed up the removal of unsightly marks and help you get an even skin tone. Backed by 5000 years of Ayurvedic research, this routine should help you rediscover that lost glow.
