Urban Veda – Natural Skincare

Spread the love

Feeling a bit grey after January? You are not alone. Gosh, last month was grim but I’ve found something that soothes and comforts the spirit as well as skin. Are you up for balancing your dosha? Then perhaps a little Urban Veda will bring you the balance you crave.

The Urban Veda ranges are designed to be suited to different skin care types which in the principles of Ayurvedic medicine are associated with ‘doshas’. This is the Ayurvedic term to describe the physical and emotional tendencies in our mind and body. There are three doshas – Pitta, Kapha and Vata. If you pop over to the site you’ll find a simple online questionnaire to discover your dosha and select the products in the range that are most suitable. The ranges are Purifying, Soothing, Reviving and Radiance.

Naturally formulated using Ayurvedic herbs, flowers and fruits, combined with multi-vitamins and clinically proven actives, Urban Veda helps to maintain skin’s natural balance by infusing it with Omega-rich bio-oils, free radical-fighting antioxidants and vitality-boosting essential fatty acids.

I’ve been testing Radiance Replenishing Night Cream and let me tell you, it’s far too lovely to save for night time. I keep it on my desk and when I’m feeling under pressure I stop and rub some on my hands as well as my face. The rich, warm smell is so calming that I instantly feel better. The light cream is easily absorbed by the skin and is enriched with anti-inflammatory turmeric to improve skin tone, liquorice to support elasticity and restore suppleness, arjuna to reduce the appearance of fine lines and patchouli to reduce scarring and heal dry and inflamed skin. It’s ideal for skin prone to becoming dry, lack-lustre and dull. Yes, that’s me with my hand up scoring a perfect ten on all counts.

Naturally formulated to Ayurvedic principles to balance the Vata dosha.
