Kumkumadi oil benefits –
The reason behind Kumkumadi oil’s growing popularity is its ability to tackle various skin issues and types. Broadly speaking it is said to reduce signs of ageing like wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, blemishes, and pimples. It is also said to help in reducing hyper-pigmentation, a common issue with Indian skin and also help fight against common allergies and infections.
Its key ingredient Saffron oil helps lighten skin tone and illuminate it from within — turmeric treats cuts, burns and acne, sandal oil smoothens skin, liquorice reduces spots and so on and so forth. High on antioxidants, the oil reduces the inflammatory response of the skin that causes pigmentation and also works as an antibacterial ingredient in tackling acne-related issues. The ancient science of Ayurveda basically passes on all its best skincare treatments in one highly concentrated serum.
How to use the Kumkumadi oil?
Keeping the sticky and thick nature of the oil in mind, it is suggested that you use it sparing on your skin. A clean, thoroughly washed face is the right canvas for the oil. Just a few drops massaged on your face should do the trick. Let the oil stay overnight or at least for 2-3 hours before you wash it off for maximum effectiveness.
