Natural Skin Care Routine From Your Ancestors

This blog attempts to break the notion that skins can be treated by the expensive and/or international skincare products only. Sure, Cosmetics are easily available and ready to use but the benefits of using such products can take a toll. Especially when you are not careful with the products you use. So, we advise you to take a note of best Natural Skin Care routine.

Dr Rachna Jagia, MD, DNB, DAAAM-USA; head and senior consultant, Venkateshwar Hospital, Dwarka, says, “Beauty products may not impart the projected results. On the contrary, substandard quality, grade, harmful compositions can result in allergies, discolouration, texture alteration or permanent damage to the skin or hair. Increased usage and unregulated production have led to a steep rise in side effects suffered by the consumers. I’ve seen the number of cases double, especially in the younger to middle-aged patients.

Have you considered making the switch to all-natural skincare? Or try making them yourself!
