    How to find the best face-oil that will work for you after 50, 60, 70 and beyond

    How to Select a Face Oil at 50, 60, 70 and beyond

    1. Invest in the right ingredients and ask, "Is it really natural?"

    Because the skin's natural defence system gets weaker as you get older, the way it gets affected by chemical formulations is even worse than when you're young.

    Certain chemical formulations may even have a steroidal effect, meaning they may make your skin look temporarily enhanced but can cause much larger long-term damage, particularly if your skin is thinner, weaker.

    No face oil should contain ANY preservative, additive or chemical because if it's pure, it doesn't need any of this - since oil itself is a preservative.

    Many "natural" products will actually be just "some" natural extracts in a mostly chemical base or with
    additives/silicon/diluting agent/fragrance.

    Therefore, turning to 100% natural, herbal solutions, (in fact, a particular category of herbal solutions if you need more targeted solutions, explained in point 3), is a very good option.

    2. Use formulations that have specific herbs for specific need.

    1. Menopausal skin prone to heat: Calming herbs like Vetiver, Sandalwood, Flame of the Forest
    2. Dry skin: Sacred Lotus, Rose, Indian Barberry, Liquorice
    3. Dull Skin: Saffron, Lodhra, Lemon, Butter Tree Bark, Liquorice, Wild Himalayan Cherry
    4. Acne prone skin: Lodhra, Indian Madder (Manjishtha), Turmeric, Indian Barberry
    5. Uneven complexion: Wild Himalayan Cherry, Saffron
    6. Pores: Black Mustard
    7. For firming: Black Mustard, Inula Racemosa, Beauty Berry (Priyangu)
    8. Irritated Skin: Indian Rose-Chestnut (Naagchampa), Flame of the Forest (Palashphool), Indian Bay Leaf, Nut Grass

    3. Try a new category of Face Oil that can be very potent.

    Recently gaining more popularity, Ayurvedic oils have existed for about 5000 years! Ayurveda is the over-5000-year-old sister science of Yoga and is a whole discipline of its own that combines herbology, biology, psychology, yoga and more to provide natural solutions for a healthy life.

    Pure Ayurvedic skincare can be very powerful because it uses a number of highly effective exotic herbs in a unique way - by cooking them into specific base oils. While Ayurvedic face oils are good for any age, for mature skin, Ayurvedic oils can be exceptionally beneficial because:
    (a) They're chemical free
    (b) They have specific herbs that naturally have youth-boosting, firming, fine-tuning, glow enhancing effects and
    (c) They provide older skin with natural moisture and stability, comparable to the skin's own oils when it is young. As we age, Ayurvedic oils make for a more powerful replacement for the skin's natural oil that keeps it bright, soft and youthful.

    4. Use just 3 to 4 drops.

    Oils, and particularly Ayurvedic oils, have far more powerful benefits when used correctly. Because they can be so powerful, too much is not needed. Less is more when it comes to Ayurvedic face oils.

    5.  Use a nutritive oil once in the morning and a restorative oil once in the evening or before going to bed.

    According to Ayurveda, the human body is naturally inclined to follow Circadian Rhythms or the rhythms of nature. Different functions take over the body at different times of the day. From 10:00 pm to 2:00 am, the body begins transformative, restorative processes. If the skin is fed with healthy, nutritive herbs, the skin too will rejuvenate itself with zing and you will wake up with radiant skin in the morning.

    KEY: A quick 5-minute face massage can do wonders for your skin. Not only would it enhance blood circulation, helping your skin look youthful, but it will also help the oil penetrate even better.


    Is there a woman who hasn’t been lured by those rich, expensive elixirs that promise the Moon and Mars, and maybe, offer Jupiter for free?!

    We have all been tempted by the promises of face oils, but how do we decide what works for us?

    The whole idea behind VARAASA is that women shouldn't have to give in to fake promises or get temporary results. Women should not have to resort to makeup to hide their natural beauty. Women should not have to depend on chemicals or "partially-natural" products to bring out the best of themselves —especially in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond.

    You should be able to simplify your skincare routine, use no more than 2 things and spend no more than 5 minutes to let your true self look stunning. You shouldn't be forced to choose a product that's not truly natural but only promises to be so or one that may be natural but doesn't work!

    That's why The Ayurveda Experience, the world’s first and largest online global platform based out of India to popularize the over-5000-year-old science of Ayurveda in North America, Australia and Europe decided to bring to you 100% natural, 100% safe Ayurvedic face oils from VARAASA that are what they say they are, and actually give powerful results!

    Just a pinch of turmeric doesn't make something Ayurvedic - Ayurveda is a whole science that considers the quality of herbs, the way they're prepared for cooking, the temperature at which the oils must be cooked, the best methodology and procedures for cooking the oil and more...

    This science has existed for years, but never before was it brought forward in the way Varaasa does today.

    One of the biggest mistakes middle-aged women make is using foundation, concealers and other coverage makeup, which, instead of covering, end up making lines look even more pronounced, and skin look crepey and cakey and feels dry.

    The best solution is NOT to find another cover-up, but to make your natural skin look and feel and be SO GOOD that you don't need or want to hide it anymore!


    Varaasa products do just that - they provide a long-term, healthy solution to problems like:
    -Dryness, patchiness
    -Large appearance of pores
    -Pronounced appearance of lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead
    -Appearance of blemishes
    -Uneven skin tone
    -Firming and toning

    Varaasa brings the beauty of ancient culture and tradition along with the scientific principles that the science of Ayurveda was based upon in a unique way. Our products stand out in a crowd of skincare products and brands not only due to the way they look, but also because of the way they make their users look! The strongest 'USP' of Varaasa products is that they work!

    Thousands of women are totally loving using Varaasa!

    “Miracle Face Oil”

    “I’ve been using this oil from two days and I'm amazed at how soft, supple, radiant and bright my skin is.. to top it with a natural glow in just two days! I don't think I'll ever use foundation... . I have combination skin and don't have any skin issues, my face is very healthy now because of this product. I can't wait to try your body and hair oils, they are on the way! My husband uses it with me day and night, we are very happy with this oil! This will be my skincare oil from now. Thank you so much for making such an amazing product 👏”


    What women are saying about us...

    “I have just been in awe of this oil. My skin has felt so much more supple. I am very picky about what I put on my body so this has been a wonderful surprise. In fact, I also tried it on my 6 year old daughter (she has dry patches that are really showing up this winter) and voila!! It helped her so much. And now my daughter is stealing my oil because she too loves the smell of it. So now I will absolutely need to order another!”

    Vina B.

    “I am super satisfied with the the oil that I have been using ... . No other products ever worked for my combination skin, which is sensitive and breaks out easily in cold weather and warm weather! But this oil is soft and moisturizing without being too oily for my face at all. I dont use any other product at all and my skin has become almost spotless. Would highly recommend it to anyone struggling with products for different weathers and places.” 

    Saswati D. 

    “I am using this oil from last two weeks regularly and the results are amazing. My skin feels so soft and the aroma is heavenly. I have stopped using my foundation as this gives me confidence to go without makeup. My skin looks bright and my brown spots are less visible. Love this oil!”
