Dry patches around the corners of the mouth
Red, itchy flaky skin
Look of irritated specks at the corner of the nose or the cheekbones
Flaky forehead and rough feeling hairline
Yes, while having dry, dehydrated skin can be an aftermath of having inadequate water in your body, skin appearing and feeling dry and rough in patches could have a much more serious explanation for it.
Skin turns dry and flaky when there is an erosion of moisture from the skin. That might make you wonder how a spot as hydrated as the corners of the mouth can become flaky.
Blame it on the extended exposure to heat or cold, usage of certain chemicals in skincare, but most importantly, the real culprit is CONFLICTING SKINCARE!
When what you apply on your skin does not complement your skin’s natural oils, the natural oils in your skin begin to dry up, leaving it feeling dry, parched and flaky.
And when the natural oils that bind water in the skin begin to dry up, skin starts to lose moisture from its layers. In fact, Modern Scientific research states that water loss in dry skin is 75 times higher than that of normal skin!
As skin loses both moisture and water, the topmost layer of the skin perishes and starts to peel away in little slivers called ‘flakes’. Extensive deprivation of moisture and water makes skin tight and irritable, and prone to redness and sensitivity.
While we can fall into the vicious circle of applying and reapplying moisture in the form of chemical laden creams, lotions and other solutions, what your flaky-turned-red skin really needs is the same essence that your skin is made up of – NATURE!
And while drinking lots and lots of water may help with hydration, there is another tried, tested and proven way to REALLY hold on to that moisture - A 100% NATURAL POLYHERBAL MOISTURE CONCENTRATE!

Elaari has ‘Ela’, also known as Cardamom, and is home to the third costliest spice in the world, after Vanilla and Saffron, and so aromatic that only a touch of its little seeds lingers on your skin all day long!

The wonders of Elaari are as deep as some of the relatively obscure facts about humankind!
How do you know that you are thirsty? How do you sense thirst? And how do you instinctively know that what your body needs while feeling thirsty is not anything else but water?
Similarly, your skin, which is as living and as animate as you, feels thirst too. While most of its thirst can be felt and seen instantly, long-term repercussions of not quenching its thirst fully materialize in rough patches on the body, on the face, around the corners of the mouth, at the ends of the nose, even on the scalp or the hairline!
But what extremely dry, parched skin needs is more than just water, and certainly not any ordinary polyherbal oils.
According to Ayurveda’s principles, what can quench skin’s thirst when it feels parched and droughty is a 5,000 year old classical preparation made using the
...All COOKED in an efficacious solution that ancient ‘Vaidyas’ or Ayurvedic scholars wrote praises about!
This sensational moisture-burst treat has been written about in centuries’ old Ayurvedic texts.
It is a rich, TRADITIONAL Ayurvedic oil formulated over 5,000 years ago by Ayurvedic ‘Vaidyas’ or Scholars for topical application on the skin as well as the hair to induce a burst of moisture using skin-reassuring, extremely rare Ayurvedic ingredients such as Cardamom, Rosha Grass, Indian Frankincense, Myrrh, Beauty Berry and 26 other unsurpassed and new Ayurvedic ingredients, many of which you may not have even come across in other iYURA Oils!
All you need is 1 Drop Per Dry Patch to relieve and soothe the look of dry, flaky spots.
Dry and Flaky Skin Care is not synonymous to an easy, 2-3 ingredient formulation, but a well-thought of, dry skin-friendly concoction with natural herbs that won’t harm your skin, are gentle yet extremely potent, and more importantly, have proven their efficacy over a long period.
Let’s dive deeper into some of the lush ingredients of this moisture concentrate
Who knew the sweet minty spice in your chai latte could nourish and cool your skin?
Cardamom, in particular, benefits the skin by giving it a smooth glow for a rosy, lustrous appearance. It is potent and is known for its soothing properties that quench the thirst of your parched skin. Its dosha balancing properties improve complexion and help fade the appearance of blemishes that dry, flaky patches may leave on your skin.
This spice, widely used in perfumes owing to its invigorating scent, adds a plump sheen to the skin that makes it look dewy, glassy and healthy. Regular use of Cardamom on skin is known to make even light bounce off your skin!
Amla is a powerhouse of Vitamin C and goodness for aging, dry, and dehydrated skin. The lime green berry has been used in many eastern households for ages, be it in the form of pickles, jams, juices or straight up sour wedges sprinkled with rock salt.
Not for no reason, however! It is loaded with vitamins and minerals that improve the appearance of fine lines, sagging skin and dull complexion.
It aids in imparting a healthy glow to your skin, which is sure to turn heads. (We promise 😉)
It helps fade the appearance of acne marks and will give you flawless and nourished skin.
Indian gooseberry has been used in hair oils and scalp butters for centuries in Ayurveda. Amla-infused oils are used to add shine, moisturize and nourish dry scalp.
This aromatic Ayurvedic herb is used specifically in Ayurvedic skincare formulations to give skin a clearer-looking complexion. Its skin soothing benefits make it the suitable herb to be used for sensitive skin types.
In Ayurveda, Malabar Catmint is known as a Tridoshic herb, capable of managing all 3 Doshas or imbalances. Because of its pleasant aroma, it is also known as a ‘Sughandhada’.
This unique herb, used for the first time in an iYURA formulation, is known to soothe and calm any kind of burning sensation that may be felt from having parched skin for a long time.
A famous spice from Southern India, the one we all use so extensively in cakes, shakes and lattes truly make it a wonder spice in all kitchens around the world.
However, the benefits of Cinnamon in Ayurvedic skincare dates back to thousands of years.
The protecting property of the spice helps it improve the appearance of blemishes on skin. In Ayurveda, it is known as an ‘Utkat’ meaning 'ardent' because of its quickness and efficiency. It pacifies both Kapha and Vata Doshas and improves the look of the complexion (which is why it is also known as a ‘Varnya’ or complexion enhancer), and promotes a balanced scalp.
It is interesting to know that cinnamon has also been used for centuries to support female health.
Is there a thing this earthy spice can’t do? The list is pretty much endless.
Standing true to its name, Beauty Berry, in Ayurveda is known as a ‘Priyangu’ meaning ‘dear’, that give skin and scalp all the nourishment it ardently needs.
These beautiful bright purple berries are rich in flavonoids that help your skin stand strong against environmental stressors that might cause dryness and dullness of skin.
But what makes it a dear ingredient in dry-sensitive skin and scalp formulations is its gentle nature and very delicate yet potent properties that makes it the best loving and mild ingredient to be applied topically.
What’s more? It’s Tridoshic properties makes it a sought-after gem in Ayurveda.
Indian Frankincense, also called ‘Shallaki’ in Sanskrit for its soothing and calmingly pleasant smell, is found especially in the hilly terrains. It grows rapidly and exudates a jelly-like resin that has a very pleasant smell and has been in use by women for centuries now to maintain youthful-looking skin.
Ayurveda suggests that the resin from this tree promotes a healthier appearance of the skin, and intensely moisturizes and calms dry skin and scalp.
This particular herb is capable of pacifying both Pitta and Kapha Doshas, which makes it the apt ingredient to be used in a dry and sensitive skincare formulation.
It is ‘Sheetal’ or cooling in nature, which makes it all the more soothing for dry, flaky skin types!
Infused with a unique aroma, Pine is your best friend if you’re concerned about the bumps and blemishes that ruin your perfect look. In Ayurveda, Pine is typically used for smoother, clearer-looking skin. Pine is also known to significantly ease down the look of skin irritations owing to its cooling properties.
A lesser known but deeply beneficial use of this oil is as a hair cleanser. It enhances hair’s natural shine and moisturizes it thoroughly. What’s even more impressive is that it also keeps your worst scalp-related nightmares at bay!
It’s surprisingly light in nature, moisturizes and promotes smoothness, and promotes a healthier appearance for both your face and your scalp.
Moreover, this ingredient gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy a deeply relaxing moment that will make all the difference to your self-care routine!
Rosha Grass, a fragrant, Ayurvedically beneficial grass that thrives in hilly regions, is particularly known for its pleasant fragrance (similar to that of Rose), which is why it is also known as a “Saugandhika” meaning ‘aromatic’ in Ayurveda.
This Ayurvedic grass rejuvenates and revitalizes parched skin that needs extra nutrition. This sweet-smelling grass is made into a paste-form to help regularize skin tone for a glowing, youthful look.
Rosha Grass is like that freeing feeling at the end of the day when all your tasks have been taken care of. It also helps pacify both Pitta and Kapha Doshas. With this ingredient in your skincare arsenal, you can be assured that your fragile, flaky skin gets the extra bit of care and attention that your dry skin rightly deserves!
Can you believe that this power-packed ingredient has been in use since 600 BCE according to the Ayurvedic texts but is seldom found in skincare formulations?! Yes, there seems to be nothing more surprising!
Guggul is made from the sap of the Commiphora Mukul Tree and has proved to be effective in managing a wide range of skin irritations arising due to dryness. Guggul is an all-purpose ingredient that helps with everything that makes you dislike the way your skin looks. It balances out all kinds of breakouts, blemishes, soreness and redness and make way for wonderfully smooth-looking skin.
This wonder sap is widely acknowledged and revered as one of the strongest and most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic treasury. It contains nourishing compounds that work specifically on your dry, mature skin and pacify sensitive and troubled skin.
The secret skin calming compound is Limonene and Magnesium that work in synergy to keep your skin intensely moisturized and trouble-free the entire day.
It also helps reduce the crackly and chapped appearance of the skin by providing a balm-like effect.
You might have heard of its extensive usage of this ingredient in your recipe books, but in a skincare product? That’s a first..for iYURA as well.
Ayurveda acknowledges this spice as ‘Laghu’ referring to its lightness and ability to not irritate skin and scalp, ‘Varnya’ because of its brightening and balancing properties, and ‘Ushna’ because of its warm and comforting nature.
Moreover, this particular spice is known for balancing both Kapha and Vata Doshas, making it a perfect fit in a skincare meant for dry and sensitive skin types.

Imagine yourself in nature, walking barefoot on lush green grass, as you look up to a bright turquoise sky above you, cool breeze gently caressing your face and green chir pine trees around. While sauntering, you come across an old Vaidya (An Ayurvedic Doctor).
He takes you around the thick pristine forest he knows so well, telling you about the trees, herbs and flowers that can help your skin and hair and promote good health.
He plucks 3 different kinds of berries - and calls them Triphala, meaning ‘3 fruits’. One of them is called Indian Gooseberry, or Amla and contains high levels of Vitamin C known for improving the look of skin and hair.
He gathers a few more Ayurvedic herbs and spices and throws them into his pouch, the aroma of which sticks by you as you move further into the forest, especially of the one named Malabar Catmint with a pleasant camphor-scented aroma.
He tells you how Cardamom is used extensively in Asia, especially in Indian cuisine for its refreshing fragrance. He gives you an Indian Gooseberry, you bite into it, the sharpness bites at the tip of your tongue and settles down in a mellow sweetness.
He collects some sap, a rich crimson one and tells you that Myrrh, an exotic tree in Asia and Northern Africa is prized for its beauty benefits.
Along the way, he picks a few blades of Palmarosa, that is known to enhance complexion and offer balance to sensitive skin.
After what looks like he has collected all that he needed – an assortment of more than 30+ herbs and spices, he tells you that each one has a special purpose in what he is going to prepare next. A lot of walking, climbing and talking about herbs and spices for your skin later, he disappears for hours and then resurfaces with a Key Lime Colored bottle, full of an amber-colored oil which he made using all the herbs he collected on the walk in the forest with you!
He tells you that these hand-picked herbs are what your dry skin and scalp needs, especially after a peculiar walk in the forest, such as this one.
He asks you to use that amber elixir for 12 days or more to experience the softest skin you’ve ever had, the calmest scalp you’ve enjoyed of late and a mischievous glow that escapes from your face, loudly revealing your beauty secret to the world!
A whiff of the oil is reminiscent of your entire journey in the forest, handpicking the best of the best herbs, so unique, rare and fresh...the experience was totally worth it!
Unlike other dry-sensitive skin products that remind you of a strong chemical cleanser meant to repress your skin and symptoms of its sensitivity, Elaari is like a breeze of fresh air, so light and aromatic that both your skin and your scalp will leave their tough days behind and embrace their NEW companion!
To add to this already power-packed moisturizing oil, is its herbal, earthy, not-so-overwhelming aroma that makes it a divine concoction that will not only rejuvenate your senses but your skin too.
These handpicked ingredients are known in Ayurveda for their gentle and intensely moisturizing nature and their ability to work in synergy with other well-known Ayurvedic ingredients commonly used in skincare and amplify their benefits. These ingredients are so rarely found that only a well-versed Ayurvedic savant would know of their existence and their benefits in skincare!
The ancient Indian science of life Ayurveda, which dates back to over 5000 years ago offers nature's healing touch for beautiful skin! While we have discovered it only recently, not only had Ayurveda discovered the power of oils over 5000 years ago, but it has also progressed further to study complex formulations to give results that an ordinary mix-up of oils doesn't give!
iYURA's authentic Ayurvedic skincare is prepared using an ancient method where Ayurvedic herbs (those described in Ancient Ayurvedic texts written over 5000 years ago) are collected. The herbs are washed, dried, pounded into powders and then made into a paste. They’re then hand-cooked into a light yet profoundly powerful base of sesame oil for hours. Once all the moisture has evaporated, all the oil is then strained and is ready for use. These formulas are based on texts that are over 5000 years old that are designed by keeping the properties of plants as well as the elements of nature and how they manifest themselves in the human body.
"This oil is quick-absorbing and is the perfect amount of hydration for my skin. This is the first winter that I've not had dry, flaky skin! At first I was afraid it would make my skin oily, but it doesn't make it oily at all! I love the clean scent on top of how well it works."

"I was curious about using oils on my face. On my body is one thing but a previous experience with using an oil wasn’t a great one. But the Ayurvedic science and information provided on the website convinced me to try it. I’m glad I did. My skin has always been dry, and with aging and Northeast winter weather, most lotions and creams have not cut it. But these oils are awesome! I love massaging them into my face, my skin is soft and not the dry, flaky skin that’s typical for me in the winter."
