5 Of The Best Ayurvedic Ingredients To Treat Dry & Oily Skin Types

India is a subtropical country, in most parts of the country we experience very hot summers, mild winters and a humid rainy season. Thanks to the extreme weather conditions, living with dry and oily skin is part of our reality. Sometimes, over the counter products don't work for our skin type. We need to look for skincare products that are designed for Indian weather. Something, that's born on Indian soil... like Ayurveda! 

It's been around for 5,000 years and if you know your dosha, you can't go wrong in finding your perfect match.

We never realised that we were sitting on a pot of gold all along.

If you have oily skin, neem will be the most effective skincare ingredient for you. Known for its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, neem helps in controlling the production of excess sebum. The fatty acids present in neem help the ingredient to penetrate deep into our skin and get rid of dead skin cells.

A natural way to treat breakouts and fade away blemishes is to include moringa into your skincare routine. Just like neem, it too has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce inflammation and keep the wrinkles at bay.

One of the reasons to love aloe vera is because it's extremely soothing and hydrating for the skin. It agrees with all skin types, especially dry and sensitive skin. If you're suffering from a rash or painful breakouts, the anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties in aloe vera can nurse your skin back to health.

Dry skin often has a tendency to look dull and uneven. Here's where saffron comes into the picture. It helps to brighten your complexion and if you have acne, it will help get rid of them too. A cool DIY recipe is to team saffron with rose water and what you'll have is a powerful skin toner by your side.
