Desi heritage

This year’s Republic Day falls in the 75th year of our country’s independence. No wonder, the nation is celebrating this glorious day as Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. Patriotism is in the air. Being desi is a moment of pride — reasons being plenty — our ancient heritage being one of them. And, when it comes to heritage, how can we not mention Ayurveda? This Republic Day, let’s wear this pride up our sleeve. Let’s embrace the spirit of being desi truly. With Ayurveda; with Origen’s natural and Ayurvedic skincare products.

At Origen, we have the expertise of crafting authentic and natural skincare products using the ancient science of Ayurveda. Most of Origen’s natural and Ayurvedic skincare products are derived from plants. So, we breathe Ayurveda day in and day out and advocate the use of only Ayurvedic and Herbal products for skincare. After all, nothing can be better than natural herbs. This is why in this blog; we have come up with some Ayurvedic and Herbal skincare tips to help you imbibe the feel of going desi this Republic Day.

Desi skincare tips

  • Neem oil is excellent to treat acne and fungal infections. Lightly dab undiluted neem oil onto the required areas of your face using a cotton swab. Let it soak in for up to 20 minutes. Use warm water to wash off the oil.
  • Tulsi is excellent to be used as a brightening face mask. Mix grounded tulsi leaves and milk in equal proportions. Apply this paste on your face. Scrub it off after 20 minutes.
  • Take orange peel powder and yoghurt in 1:2 proportions. Apply the paste on the face and wash off after 20 minutes. This paste is an instant rejuvenating face pack.
  • Saffron works well to reduce pigmentation. Soak a few strands of saffron in clean water. Add this water to 2 tbsp of turmeric powder. Apply this paste and then wash off after 15 minutes.
  • Aloe vera is an excellent moisturizer. Use the gel directly from an aloe vera plant and leave it on your face overnight.
  • Rose oil protects skin against sun damage. You could apply a few drops of rose oil directly to your skin.
  • Sandalwood has a soothing effect on skin inflammation. Apply its paste on the face and leave it on overnight. Wash it off with plain water.
  • Amla works wonders for hair growth. Apply a freshly-squeezed amla juice directly on the scalp. Massage your scalp. Leave the juice on for an hour.
  • Boil 2 tbsp of shikakai powder in 2 cups of water to make a semi-liquid paste. Add water and honey to it. Apply this paste to your scalp. Rinse your hair with water. This paste helps increase hair shine.
  • Olive oil and almond oil are excellent skin moisturizers. Apply them to your skin on your whole body.
  • Use shea butter alone or with essential oil to moisturize your skin. It is excellent to alleviate inflammatory conditions of the skin.
