HOW TO TREAT KELOID IN AYURVEDA?

Actually, sometimes we confuse it with another more common type of scar called hypertrophic scars, these are flat scars that can range from pink to brown in color. Unlike keloids, hypertrophic scars are smaller, and they can go away on their own over time.

It’s a natural therapy that detoxifies the body, helps to maintain inner balance and vitality. When we become unable to digest our food. When our digestive energies, which are known as Agni, are in balance with our system, we produce a subtle essence called “Ojas” which is the basis of our physical strength and immunity, if our ‘Agni “is weakened our digestion gets affected and we become prone to certain diseases. Panchkarma is a cleaning process that helps to release the stored toxins from the body and helps in improving the body`s healing ability. Thus it is useful in treating keloids.

Planet Ayurveda Rose Toner For Gorgeous & Youthful Skin !

TONER TIPS FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

The first question that comes to our mind is WHAT IS TONER, WHAT DOES TONER DO TO OUR SKIN & WHY DO WE NEED THIS EXTRA STEP?

Toners are water-based liquids composed of some specific active ingredients like plant extracts and essential oils. Toner is an essential step to add to your skin care routine to maintain poreless and smooth skin as well as used to balance your skin’s pH level but this step is often ignored by many people.

Toners are most essential and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin or for people who wear makeup or other heavy products like sunscreen and want extra cleansing or for those who want to add extra radiance to their skin.

TONER TIPS FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

Choose the right toner to all skin types.

ROSE TONER by PLANET AYURVEDA is best facial toner which is free from harsh astringent ingredients, alcohol, and fragrances.

We understand that choosing a new product is a little daunting and at the same time perplexing as well. But if you’re using the wrong formula then there are chances that toner can make your skin dry and itchy.

ROSE TONER by Planet Ayurveda is made from natural ingredients and protects the skin against bacterial attacks.

We shouldn’t overlook the benefits of face toner as it is helpful for acne-prone skin too. Facial toner is also one of the few skincare products that specialize in balancing your skin’s natural pH (power of hydrogen) level. Your skin is naturally acidic, with a pH balance that falls to 5.5. After you wash your face with your regular cleanser, your face becomes more alkaline, once your skin pH level goes above 5.6, the acid mantle (skin first layer of defense) gets compromised, which makes your skin more prone to damage and inflammation as it will make your skin vulnerable to bacteria and infection. ROSE TONER by PLANET AYURVEDA makes your skin work overtime to restore the balance back to normal

Using ROSE TONER by PLANET AYURVEDA balances your skin texture and qualities

  1. Rose Toner preps your face for better absorption of the ingredients that are present in the face cream you apply.

INDICATIONS:

If you have acne-prone or oily skin, our Rose Toner is the natural product you need as the pores in your skin connect to oil glands under the skin. These glands produce an oily substance called sebum and when the follicle pore gets clogged, oil gets trapped and a pimple or acne occurs.
