Hi doctor,

I have dry skin. I do not have any health problems, but my skin got tanned and black as I spent most of my time in the sun. My appearance looks more than my age. I want to make my skin fair and glow with the ayurveda products. I have read about a lot of natural beauty products on the internet like turmeric, sandalwood, multani mitti, papaya and milk powder. But, it is confusing as it suits me well to make my skin fair and glow. Please suggest me the best one for my skin, Also, advise when and how to use that. Also, I read on the internet about kumkumadi tailam, eladi oil, and kanti vardhaka. Are these good to use? If it is so, then how to use it? Is there any oil and cream in Ayurveda to make my skin glow? Please suggest.



Welcome to

Yes, what you have heard about Ayurveda skin products are very good, but the product will not be suitable for everyone. I suggest you follow a few things. Massage your face twice weekly with Kumkumadi tailam (Kumkuma, Usheera, Kaaleeya, Laksha). I suggest you make a paste of cuddapah almonds, add a pinch of turmeric powder and milk, mix them, apply before bath, and rub well. This will clear your tan problem and dry skin problem. Daily morning, mix raw milk and a pinch of turmeric powder and apply on the tanned portion. Massage with it and take a bath after half an hour. Internally, I suggest you Kaishore guggulu (Gokshuru, Amruta, Guduchi, Tryushana) two tablets two times and Sarivadyasava 15 mL with water twice daily after meals. Follow the above for one month for better results.
