Gentle Skincare for the Teens

Purvari_FEB_SHOT6_204(1).jpg

Among the top skin problems for teens is excess oiliness and acne. For some teens it’s just an occasional pimple, yet, for some others it’s an aggressive breakout. Increased hormone levels coupled with increased oiliness of the skin often goes hand in hand with blemishes, whiteheads or blackheads. Teenagers have struggled with skin-aches since the dawn of time.

Further, today’s teens are growing up in a selfie and Instagram driven age. Being constantly under the selfie spotlight, they have become more conscious of their skin and what it takes to keep it glamorous and glowing. Apart from that being a motivation - teens have also become more health conscious and along with eating right they also care about the right products for their skin.

The first step towards a clean and clear skin is to re-evaluate the products that are applied. Choose Products that are powerful enough to remove excess oil, yet, free from aggressive surfactants so as to avoid irritation and inflammation.

Organic products that have all the goodness of nature and few to almost null side effects will give the teenage skin the gentle care it requires.

Here are a few things to consider for your teenager’s skincare:

Cleansing

Regular cleansing is one of the most effective ways to control acne. The extra oil that is generated sticks the dead skin cells together, leading to build up and clogged pores. Cleansing with gentle cleansers will ensure that this does not happen and at the same time they don’t damage and dry the skin. Natural skincare products are gentle and do not lead to over aggressive cleaning that results in increased oil production and breakouts.

Acne prone skin

For acne prone skin, choosing a moisturizer could be difficult. Look for lightweight textures with balancing and soothing ingredients – floral waters, plant extracts – etc. Hydration is extremely important as dried out skin automatically starts producing more oil making the skin look and feel worse. 100% natural skincare products such as rose water are absorbed into the skin, soothe the irritated skin and helps balance the skin.

Non-clogging make up

It’s quite understandable to use make up to hide blemishes. But, it’s essential to also understand that heavy foundations often make things worse. Organic products, especially those made from rose petals and other natural ingredients are non-clogging and even out your skin tone too by blurring out the spots. This gives your skin a long term – fresh and radiant look.

Deodorant

Triggered by the changing hormone levels, excess sweating is another very common problem for teens. Antiperspirants are usually based on synthetic compounds and artificial fragrances. They try to prevent sweating by blocking the pores. Choosing natural deodorants give a soft and gentle aroma are perfect for the teen’s sensitive skin. Calming and odor-controlling blend of natural plant essences ensures natural all-day protection against unpleasant aroma without clogging the pores or disturbing the natural processes and functions of the body. Soft and gentle aroma is soothing too.

 100% natural skincare for teens will have long term effects  leaving the skin looking healthy and full of life – just like your teenager!

Characterized by a distinctive red rash and itchy skin, Eczema can be a difficult experience to bear. It results in a dry, flaky and highly sensitive skin that looks and feels very unpleasant. Equally unpleasant are the treatments. The usual prescription from any doctor is an extra-strength steroid cream. With pharmaceutical remedies, it’s almost impossible to avoid negative side effects in the long run.

Rather than applying harsh creams that could surely cure the skin condition, but cause long term damage, turning to organic, plant based therapeutic remedies, that have restorative and healing properties, is a viable option.

Purvari’s rose water, brimming with 100% natural ingredients and untouched by chemical additives, has the healing power to nurture and cure skin conditions – including sensitive skin irritations like Eczema.

 Rose water has not only therapeutic value, but also naturally healing powers. Here’s how it helps soothe Eczema:

 Anti-inflammatory properties

Eczema results in inflammation and cracked skin. The anti-inflammatory properties of rose water soothe the irritated skin, and over time, gently heal it, reducing the redness and keeping it moisturized.

Antioxidant properties

Dry and damaged skin caused by Eczema requires rigorous restoration. Rose water is known for its antioxidant properties that help strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissue.

Hydrates, revitalizes and moisturizes

In addition to healing, rose water acts as a cleanser while keeping your skin nourished and moisturized. Your skin looks and feels fresh.

It’s therapeutic

As a result of the healing and curing properties you enjoy when applying rose water to your skin, it does not feel ‘medicinal’. The subtle aroma feels refreshing and soothing to your senses. It not only relaxes the skin, but offers a holistic relaxation effect.

 It’s amazing that natural remedies, proven effective over for a thousand years, are an effective and superior alternative, even today. Rose water is healing, soothing and gentle – a good choice when you turn to natural remedies for skin irritations such as eczema.

Care for Your Skin - As the summer sets in

Roses 4.jpg

As summer sets in and the weather gets warmer, the unforgiving heat and humidity can wipe the glow off your skin.  This change in climate takes its toll, making oily skin look oilier and dry skin look patchier. The heat causes the pores on your skin to open and these eventually get clogged with dirt and oil, leading to pimples and acne that leave blemishes on your face.

Summers can be brutal for your skin and hence, summer skincare is significantly different than that of winter. Here are a few tips to help you hold on to that radiant and healthy skin as the temperature rises and humidity sets in.

Unfortunately, most of the skin care products you find on the shelves of chemists, department stores and even cosmetic stores are loaded with chemicals and are known to do more harm than good. Caring for your skin in summer needs something that’s more soothing, gentle and healing.

Rose water, among all the organic products, is known for its soothing and healing capabilities. It is not just a cosmetic, but rose water is a therapeutic and has the healing power of nature.

So, as the weather gets warmer, here are a few changes you can make to your skincare routine:

Change your Face Wash

In summer, the first switch you must make is to replace your face wash. Your summer face wash must be able to draw out the excess oil from your skin.  For dry skin, a non-foaming cleanser will do the trick. As you wash your face many times a day, a spritz of rose water mist will definitely help heal your sun-affected skin and keep it refreshed.

Minimal Make Up

Under the intolerant sun, nothing seems to help pamper your skin. Keep the makeup to a minimum and use the healing power of nature to keep your skin in good health. Light foundation and sunscreen are a good idea. Apart from these, make sure that you use natural products, especially rose water, as a part of your daily skincare routine.  

Organic Products to Repair Sun Damage

You cannot keep running for the shade to avoid the sun! Using sunscreen or a hat could be a good cover, but sun damage is inevitable – particularly on the face, which is directly touched by the sun’s rays. Organic rose water, is known to help fade the sun spots and blemishes, and even out the skin tone. It also has Vitamin C, which is a perfect fixer for sun-induced skin damage!

Sweet Smelling Naturally

Rose water is sweet smelling and free from chemical additives. It can be used as a natural deodorant especially in summers when the weather is warm. Purvari’s rose petal mist is conveniently portable and you can carry it along when you are on the go.

As the weather changes, and your skin begins to feel the impact, it's essential that you make a few changes to your skincare routine too! !

Why choose natural skincare for children?

Whether you are a first-time parent or a seasoned one, choice of childcare products have always been a paralyzing paradox. Whether it is skin care, bath time or bedtime regimes, product selection places a lot of responsibility on the caretaker. When it comes to choosing products to put on your little one's skin, the choice becomes even harder. A baby's skin is thinner, delicate and more permeable than an adult. It hence becomes essential that when you walk down that baby care products aisle, select the right products for your baby.

If it gets too overwhelming, remember that – whenever in doubt – try the natural one. Most products in the market seem pharmaceutical and smell like a mix of chemicals. Some of these could do more harm than any good to your baby's skin in the long term. It’s time to avoid the pharmaceutical and think of what nature has to offer.

Of all the skin care products, (even the natural ones), rose petals have been proven to be more effective and safe – especially if you are trying out something new for your infant. Most of the rose water products available today are made from clear water and pure rose petals. The process used to prepare rose water is by steam distillation. It retains most of the healing and therapeutic value of the ingredients.

How is Purvari Different?

Purvari specializes in luxurious plant-based products that care for the blooming health of your skin. Carefully blending pristine floral waters, undiluted herbal extracts, and soothing natural minerals, Purvari gathers the best of what nature has to offer to give your baby’s skin, the gentle care and nourishment it deserves.

Soothing - ultra-gentle and pure

The developing skin requires a soothing, moisturizing effect. Use products that are kind to your skin and have little or no chances of any side effects.  The soothing rose scent can even purportedly help reduce anxiety and promote better sleep

Nourishing – for delicate infant skin

Most of the natural skin care products offer chemical-free nourishment to the skin. They are perfect for the delicate infant skin that does not need to be exposed to harsh chemical-based products.

Healing – chemical-free care

Rose water contains mild, natural ingredients and no irritating synthetic chemicals and has a natural healing effect on the infant skin.

When you are overwhelmed with options while choosing skin care products for your baby, it’s always safer to select something that’s pure, gentle and closer to nature.

Is it time to re-think your skincare?

Skincare does not need to be complicated. It is more about understanding and empathizing with what your skin wants. Just like our body absorbs the food and nutrients we put in, our skin too absorbs almost 64% of what we apply on it. That's why it is essential to be mindful of what you are putting on your skin.

So, think about what you applied to your skin this morning – and yesterday – and the day before that? Is it time to re-think your skin care options? Is it time to put your skin on an organic, natural and nutritious skincare ‘diet' and prevent it from absorbing toxins and other unnecessary chemicals?

Usually, our skincare cosmetics are an extensive collection of masks, creams, moisturizers and lots more. Many of these products are more pharmaceutical than natural and contain chemical compositions that strip your skin of their natural oil. Further, some of the ingredients may cause skin irritation too, particularly for those with sensitive skin. Choosing skin care products deserves careful consideration.

So, is it time to re-think your skin care options?

Let's begin with giving your skin a break! A break from the evils of reactions, irritations, and rashes. This time, indulge in all-natural skincare. When it comes to all natural skin care, rose petals have been proven to be skin-friendly with rich benefits and naturally healing capabilities.

We at Purvari are passionate about using the wisdom of nature and its healing abilities to empathize and understand exactly what our skin needs. Among everything that’s natural, rosewater is known to have natural nutrients that are ‘kind' to your skin.  It is more therapeutic and non-pharmaceutical - that’s what makes it a perfect choice for your daily skincare.

Purvari’s Rose Petal Mist is designed to nurture your skin and complexion with wholesome, chemical-free nourishment that's as pristine and natural as the skin itself. It is rich in natural water-soluble nutrients that can only be extracted from petals through steam distillation or steeping. Roses are known to be a natural source of vitamin C, geraniol and quercetin – antioxidants that exhibit mild anti-inflammatory, soothing, and brightening properties.

The benefits of everything ‘organic' and ‘natural' have been known for a thousand years – and now it's time to re-think our options, going back to the roots of what nature has to offer and make a mindful decision about our skincare.
