The concept of Ayurveda Pura Skincare is based on Ayurveda, which is the ancient Indian holistic medical system. Ayurveda means “science of life” – “Ayu” means life and “Veda” meaning science.
There are 5 basic elements in Ayurveda : space, air, fire, water and earth.
These 5 elements in turn combine with each other, producing 3 bio-hysical forces or DOSHAS within the human body:
1. Vata (air and space)
2. Pitta (fire and water)
3. Kapha (water and earth)
Together they are known as TRIDOSHA and govern all biological, physiological and psychological functions of the mind and body, both physical and emotional.
Our Beauty Editor had the opportunity of receiving three of their products to review! Here’s what she thought!
DEEP HYDRATING GEL MASK: RE-BALANCE FORMULA (Tridoshic)
“This was by FAR my best product out of the three! It was extremely relaxing and went hard within 5-7 minutes. Only a thin layer was required which is ideal because that means a product can last longer! I received the ‘Tri-doshic’ version which meant it was suitable for all skin types. It left my skin feeling refreshed and I actually felt more alert afterwards!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs that uplift on a Monday morning!”
DAILY FACE CREAM (Kapha)
“The first thing I noticed about this cream was the strong scent. It has a lovely smell which reminded me of scented candles! When I applied it to my face it felt very relaxing but I received the ‘Kapha’ version which is suitable for oily skin, so as I have dry skin I had to mix it with some E45 – it did the trick!”
SKIN RADIANCE EXFOLIATING CREAM, DE-STRESS FORMULA (pitta)
“One thing that really bugs me about exfoliating creams is how hard it is to get the sandy particles off my face! Does anybody else get this?!?! This exfoliating cream did not give me any problems at all! There were less sandy particles so I was able to wash it off effectively and still got all the excess dirt/makeup off my face!”
