Ayurveda - The Real Cure

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian system of natural and holistic medicine. When translated from Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “the science of life” (the Sanskrit root Ayur means “longevity” or “life” and veda means “science”).

While allopathic/ Chemical medicines tends to focus on the management of disease, Ayurveda bestows us with the knowledge of how to prevent disease and how to eliminate its root cause if it does occur.

Core Principles of Ayurveda
The knowledge of Ayurveda was passed orally through a lineage of sages in India until it was collated into text more than five thousand years ago. The oldest known texts on Ayurveda are the Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, and the Ashtanga Hrudaya. These texts detail the affect that the five elements found in the cosmic system - earth, water, air, fire, space – have on our individual system, and expound on the importance of keeping these elements balanced for a healthy and happy life.
Importance of Ayurveda can be felt by the single line fact that it is free from side effects. Chemical/ Synthetic products how ever beneficial may be but is bound to have side effects as its aftermath. Some known some still unknown due to lack of research.Ayurveda supports health without disturbing the natural intelligence of the body; Ayurvedic treatments have no negative side affects. Because of this, people around the world are now turning to the ancient science of Ayurveda to help them regain and maintain optimal health. 

Market is flooded with cosmetics that make unbelievable promises but are mostly fake. Hazardous chemicals that have short term whitening effects are sold under the blanket of some natural ingredients like aloe vera or neem. These products have no real goodness but are so beautifully presented through advertisements that we tend to buy not just the product but also the fake hope along. And exactly when one had given up the hope the market comes out with another so called revolutionary product to fool us more than its predecessor.  We are a pure breed of optimists and so are the pseudo products  that test us one after another.

Most of the cosmetic products target facial skin,ranging from skin whitening solutions to wrinkle cure for younger looks. Cosmetics to make you younger by decades. These cosmetics contain chemicals that bring the claimed effects with in short period of time but also for equally short period of time.  With the artificial effects comes many side effects that are mostly not spoken about or warned through product description document. These side-effects are left for the users to explore themselves before discarding the product.

Recently, Ayurvedic concepts have been introduced into day to day life products. It is advisable to minimise the use of chemical products on body and look for natural alternatives. These natural alternatives are more beneficial and there goodness is forever. They are cost-effective and at the same time have zero side-effects. One such product is from the trusted house of Vicco. The brand that makes the famous Vicco turmeric cream. This one is an all purpose cream that has stood to people s faith for decades together.  Now VICCO labs have come up with yet another natural product Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam base. Its Ayurvedic formula combined with the microbicide properties of turmeric prevents oily skin, fights pimples and clears blackheads.This is a substitute for the harsh chemical based face wash that damage our skin and disturb its natural pH.

Its time to go Natural and enjoy the goodness of nature. Because Nature understands us better than us. Here are a few skin care tips that I want to share:

1. Drink plenty of water and keep yourself sufficiently hydrated. The water intake varies from people to people based on their nature of work and life style.
2. Wash your face whenever you are exposed to pollution or excessive sweating.
3. Use a clean and hygienic face towel.
4. Supplement your diet with a variety fruits rich in vitamins and minerals.
5. Avoid prolong exposure of sun between morning 10.00 am to evening 5.00 pm
