  • Is it safe to use raw Aloevera and apply it over Skin?

    Aloe ha! Says the sun that happily shines at you, and you wave back at it, wondering if all that sunblock, coolers, and face mask ever succeed in hiding you enough. Those newly formed wrinkles along with last week’s face tan gets you spending on multiple skincare products. And after a whirlwind of trial and error, it is only natural that you end up reaching out to “The Empress of healing plants”, our own Aloe Vera. This Ayurvedic herb that belongs to the special class of “Rasayanas” is in charge of numerous healing properties that even Queen Cleopatra is documented to have included this in her beauty regime.  So how much does Aloe vera benefit our skin? It reduces inflammation, infections and successfully treats acne and acne scars. It boosts the healing of wounds and proves to be effective on first and second degree burns. Best for Anti-Aging, it increases collagen production that lightens age spots, fine lines and also serves as an excellent moisturizer. ­­­With influencers coming out with DIY remedies every weekend, the usage of aloe gel extracted from our gardens has been frequently encouraged and romanticized. But the question here is, is it really safe to use the natural gel directly from the plant as claimed ? The answer is “No” and this could quite surprise you.  The Aloe gel stripped directly from plants is indeed unsafe and damaging to our skin, and now we are obliged to present to you a thoroughly vera-fied explanation. Aloe vera belongs to an extensive species of plants that encompasses more than 400 types. Not all of them are deemed to be safe on skin, and it is impossible for you to identify the right ones on your own. The leaf comprises two primary components, the Gel, and the Latex. The latex part of the plant, which is the yellow material in between the leaf and the gel, is known to have adverse side effects upon use. The chances of latex mixing with the gel is very high when you try to manually extract gel off the leaf, and the anthraquinones present in the latex is likely to cause skin irritation and inflammation. Moreover, it becomes too risky for further application over deep cuts or severe burns. Homemade Aloe Vera juice shows low absorption as it dries out faster on face, making it less effective for your ailments Is there a more reliable way to enjoy maximum skin benefits from Aloe vera? Aloevera is now more easily available than ever at your nearest stores in off-the-shelf formulation.  These products are processed into cream or gel forms and are specifically made suitable for topical use.  Compared to the homemade Aloe Vera juice, the gel-like consistency from the store-bought products stays longer on the face showing higher absorption levels and effectiveness. If you are looking to go organic, then the Organic pure pressed Aloevera gel at the Vilvah store might be the one perfect for you. Manufactured using the Cold stabilization process only on select Premium Aloevera species, this pure Aloevera Gel is one of our leading and most sought after products. Another speciality is that the FTU (Finger tip unit) of skin actives is high in our product. This is due to the usage of more no. of leaves in the making of 1 jar of Gel which is unlikely in the case of homemade.  Here at Vilvah, We are proud to use Modern science to bring Mother nature closer to you, and you begin to feel her love with every use, when you see your skin aglow !

  • WHAT IS THE BEST BODYWASH FOR PEOPLE WITH BACK ACNE?

    WHAT IS THE BEST BODYWASH FOR PEOPLE WITH BACK ACNE?

    BACK ACNE - "BACNE"

    Back acne refers to pimples or cysts on the back. It can involve blackheads, whiteheads, papules & cysts.

    Back acne sometimes referred to as “bacne” — can be particularly troublesome.

    The face is a common site for acne. But your face isn’t the only place where acne can appear. It can affect any body part that has oil-secreting glands or hair follicles, including your back, chest, neck, shoulders, upper arms, and even the butt.

          

    WHY DOES ACNE OCCUR ON THE BACK?

    Like the chest and face, the back has a high density of sebaceous glands. These produce sebum, a waxy substance that keeps the skin healthy.

    Sebaceous glands are attached to hair follicles, or pores. If sebum or dead skin cells clog a pore, it can cause a blockage. This blockage may lead to inflammation or trap bacteria in the pore. This is how acne lesions develop.

    A type of yeast, Malassezia, can also cause lesions that look similar to acne. The yeast tends to overgrow in humid, sweaty environments. Because the back is often covered by clothing, backpacks, slings, and other things, it can be an ideal environment for this microbe.

    WAYS TO GET RID OF BACK ACNE

    Good daily skin care is the backbone for your acne treatment routine. However, finding a treatment that works can seem frustrating, especially if you've already tried several things with little improvement.

    Sweat can also irritate body acne. To minimize irritation, keep the following in your mind

    → Cleanse your skin gently.

    → Stop irritating your skin with harsh skin care products.

    → Resist the temptation to pick and pop acne, even on your back.

    → Avoid wearing tight fitting clothes instead wear loose-fitting clothes made of cotton or sweat-wicking fabric.

    WHY ANTIBACTERIAL BODY WASH?

    A great acne body wash doesn't just clean the surface of your skin—it also works to remove built-up oil and unclog pores. That's why you should think of an acne body wash more like a short-contact treatment rather than just a cleanser.

    → It Helps Prevent Bacterial Infection

    → It Prevents Excessive Dryness

    → It Won’t Clog Your Skin Pores

    → Offers Healthy Skin

    → Provides Antibacterial Protection

     INGREDIENTS TO BE AVOIDED WHILE CHOOSING BODY WASH FOR ACNE PRONE AND SENSITIVE SKIN

    Sulfates (e.g. SLS, SLES), parabens, phthalates, artificial fragrances, perfumes, dyes, gluten, animal by-products, petroleum products, triclosan, formaldehyde, and phosphates.


    HOW VILVAH ANTIBACTERIAL BODYWASH WILL HELP YOU?

    The VILVAH Antibacterial body wash is made of natural ingredients.

    NEEM OIL contains fatty acids (EFA), limonoids, vitamin E, triglycerides, antioxidants & calcium. The antibacterial properties of neem fight acne-causing bacteria, which helps in the treatment and prevention of acne. Also, it's extremely useful in controlling oil production in the skin.

    TURMERIC contains curcumin which inhibits the growth of Propionibacterium acnes and S. aureus, bacteria that cause inflammatory acne.

    SILVER particles can puncture the cellular walls of bacteria, inhibit cellular respiration, and disrupt DNA and the replication cycle. Silver oxide, added in Vilvah body wash is effective against Gram +ve and Gram -ve bacteria like E-Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicas, Penicillium citrinum and many more.

    Silver is a natural antimicrobial, anti-biotic, antifungal and antiseptic agent. Colloidal silver contains natural properties that resist the impact and spread of microbes, bacteria, fungi, viral matter, and other irritants. It helps to keep the skin clean and sanitary so it can heal.

    Healthier skin starts with gentle, nourishing products. That's why our Antibacterial Body Wash has No alcohol! No comedogenic oils!  No harsh ingredients!

  • HOW TO GET RID OF NIGHT SPIRALLING ?

    Whether you toss and turn at bedtime or use 3 a.m. as the time to organise your thoughts—work and life’s constant to-do lists are never-ending and tend to plague you most when you are trying to fall asleep. Once the daily distractions are gone and you are lying in bed at night, all of those stressors and anxious thoughts that have been nipping at your brain during the day enter full force. At that point, falling asleep can seem almost impossible.

    But it doesn’t have to be. You can learn to successfully avoid night spiralling and quiet your mind enough to fall asleep, but it can take time and some practice.

    Now onto the good news: there are ways we can break out of this pattern of doom and gloom, and let go of our worst expectations. Next time you find yourself catastrophizing, try the following

    Recognize it:

    The first step is becoming aware of your own thought patterns.A regular meditation practice for anxiety is wonderful for this. Set up a safe space ground yourself by meditation or by doing breath work then take it a step further by thinking over the thoughts that may keep you up at night. You’re human; it’s impossible not to have those thoughts.But allow them to flow in and flow out,write out your stressful to-do lists and your worries put a plan in action during the day so that when you lie down to go to sleep and there aren’t any life distractions, every bad thought you have doesn’t come flowing in . Both of these activities allow you to step back and observe your own thoughts, rather than actively engaging with them. Eventually, you’ll see your worst-case scenarios for what they are: just thoughts, nothing more.

    Quit Trying So Hard

    Realise that this kind of thinking is natural, and something we all do from time to time. Don’t beat yourself up, and give yourself the space and the time to reflect and adjust What you don’t want to be doing is lying awake unable to fall back to sleep and turn on the TV or reach for your phone, start clock watching, and spend a lot of time awake in bed worrying about not sleeping. get cozed up with a heavy blanket,create a safe space and  indulge yourself in aromatherapy by using our variety of scented sachets to revive your  mind and body .Use our herbal  eye pillow to relax and relieve tension that is built up around the eyes. It's OK to get out of bed and go into another room and do a quiet activity until you feel sleepy enough to try to go back to bed. preferred activities would be to read in low light or practice a calming activity.

    If you are having trouble falling asleep initially or you wake up and can’t fall back to sleep, you may want to try and stay in bed for some of those times

    Stop Clock Watching:

    We all wake up throughout the night as we cycle in and out of light and deep sleep. Many of us can easily fall back to sleep, and we don’t notice these partial awakenings, but if we suffer from insomnia and/or are already anxious about sleep, watching the clock becomes a job we feel we must do, which robs us of sleep.

    Set your alarm and then turn your clock around or hide it. If you know the alarm is set, you don’t need to know what time it is.

    Other ways to reduce nighttime spiralling:

    1. Incorporate a bedtime journal where you are able to give your brain a dump before you go to bed. Write down your to-do list and everything on your mind. Don’t just make note of your struggles and stressors but also everything you are grateful for that day.
    2. Stay connected with your support system. Connection is an important part of bettering your mental health. Reach out to those who will support you through your current state of mind to improve your mood and set boundaries on those that add toxicity to your already stressed state of mind.
    3. Incorporate an information detox during your nighttime routine and even throughout the day. Set boundaries on what social media you are allowing in and what news resources you check. Take it a step further and completely remove all social media from your phone.

  • Does an oily skin need a moisturizer?

    Often, we misinterpret the meaning behind these terms and mistake skin oil for hydration. Oil or sebum produced by our skin is nothing but a lipid that is composed of fatty acids. These oils, present in the skin, surround the outermost layer of the skin and provide nourishment. This is essential to protect and repair the skin’s natural barrier function. Whereas, hydration refers to the presence of water in the skin’s layers – dermis and epidermis – which maintains plumpness and elasticity. Moisturizers are a combination of both they nourish the skin as well as keep up the water levels for longer period of time. Read More >>
