TheGlowingSkin's Profile

About

If I told you that whipping butter is extremely cathartic, you would not believe me . So here it goes.
TheGlowingSkin is my skincare collection of Ayurveda inspired daily skin care products created for women and men.
My recipes are based on the natural skincare regimen in West Bengal that is called Rooptaan. "Roop" means beauty and "Taan" means a pull. The idea is to pull out the dirt and impurities from the deep layers of skin and nourish it back to a healthy state.
No wonder then, that the recipes have been passed down from grandmothers, some incorporated from modern herbals. And the process of making them is truly cathartic.
Everything here is hand made by me. I grow the herbs and the flowers in my garden that goes into the products. I test these products on myself, and I wouldn’t offer them to anyone if they didn’t work for me…

If you care for my inspiration read on ---

My grandmother was a legendary beauty in her age. And even in old age.

Conscious of what nature had given her, I remember her taking care of herself as long as she lived. A lifelong believer in rooptaan - homemade skincare remedies, she used her sheel nora (mortar pestle) to make a paste of neem leaves for the various maladies that crop up in a large family. I still have that sheel. All her life, she used sandalwood paste, both red and white as a cream. In the tropics it works year round. It definitely worked for her. Guess now you know what made me a believer in Rooptaan.

When she died at the ripe old age of 93, I felt she died of too much life.

My tribute to my grandmother, Red Sandal Ageless is just like her.. Her age old recipe packed in a bottle.
