Ashwagandha - A Miracle Herb for Healthy and Glowing Skin

ashwagandha herb

It can sometimes feel difficult to achieve healthy and glowing skin, especially naturally. But there are natural herbs that have been used for centuries to help maintain your complexion and keep you looking radiant all year round. One such herb is Ashwagandha!

Whether you have oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, or another skin type, you can benefit from using Ashwagandha to promote healthy and glowing skin. The herb has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce redness and inflammation on the skin, which can help to treat even more severe cases of acne. Plus, the herb also helps to protect against environmental damage like UV rays and pollution, which can contribute to premature aging and wrinkles.

What is Ashwagandha?

Ashwagandha is an Indian herb used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine. It’s commonly available as a dried root, which is ground into a powder and added to food, drinks, or tablets. Used traditionally for improving strength and stamina, ashwagandha has recently been promoted as a supplement with anti-stress effects that apply to the skin as well as the body. Known for these excellent skincare benefits, Ashwagandha is used as a natural ingredient in botanical moisturizing soothing cream and other skincare products.

Properties of Ashwagandha

  • Ashwagandha is adaptogenic and protects your skin from cortisol, the stress hormone.
  • The anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties help them heal and improve acne.
  • Ashwagandha also has anti-aging properties that boost DHEA, which is a precursor to both testosterone and estrogen to help your skin look young and healthy. (DHEA and estrogen stimulate collagen generation and increase the natural skin oils, which provides a youthful look to your skin. It also lowers cortisol levels and prevents stress from aging the skin.)
  • It’s rich in bio-active principles such as withanolides, saponins, and alkaloids which deeply cleanse, moisturize and calm the skin.

How Does Ashwagandha Help Your Skin?

Some of the major skincare concerns of today are pigmentation, premature aging, skin cancer, acne, and more. Another primary concern is pollution – when your skin is exposed to air-borne pollutants, they get trapped in pores resulting in skin damage and oxidative stress to the skin. This leads to imbalanced skin pH.

Products that harness the power of Ashwagandha deeply moisturize without clogging pores! Best of all, it works well with all skin types: oily, dry, or combination. So, you can easily incorporate these products into your skin care routine for dry skin.

Ashwagandha Renewal, the best moisturizer for combination skin, reduces pigmentation and is excellent for oily skin. Get Ashwagandha Renewal Hydrating Crème, the lightest crème in the Azuri Skincare line now.

Why You Should Choose Natural Skincare: Reason 1: Bioavailability

Why You Should Choose Natural Skincare: Reason 1: Bioavailability

brightening cream for sensitive skin

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. While it does serve as a protective barrier against harmful external stressors, it is not impervious to the things you put on it. Rather, it absorbs much of what you apply to it. You should be treating your skin the same way you treat your body. That means, if you are what you eat, then you are also what you put on your skin.

Bioavailability is a term that is commonly used in medicine that has been recently entering the skincare industry. It refers to how much of an ingredient or substance is able to be absorbed into the body and used. This can be applied to skincare to make us think about how permeable are the products that we put on our skin and what they do when they enter our body.

Azuri focuses on natural skincare products that is both highly bioavailable and nutrient-rich. We avoid harsh chemicals and instead opt for natural plant botanicals that have been a part of skincare traditions around the world for centuries. Not only are these ingredients better for the environment, they also tend to be easier for your body to absorb and are full of nutrients that nourish your skin.

The premise of natural skincare is holistically taking care of your body. It involves caring for your skin the same way you care for the rest of your body – not just using products that work, but also considering what is going to be good for you in the long run. At Azuri, we use plant-derived ingredients that are not only effective but are also good for your holistic health. Ingredients like Marula Oil, Nilotica butter, Hibiscus, Gotu Kola, Ashwagandha have been utilized and revered for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine and African traditions that understand the powers of plant-derived ingredients. Our products and ingredients are backed by thousands of years of history and science. These ingredients that are close to the earth also tend to be absorbable into the body. They contain compounds that the skin can use to heal and maintain a balance that will keep it functioning well and looking beautiful.
