We receive several questions about Kesaradi® Oil, Ayurveda, and skin care in general on a daily basis. Apart from getting their doubts cleared, many of our regular customers often write in to understand their oil better, realize its full potential and not miss out on making the most of it.
Here’s a list of some of the frequently asked questions you too may want answers to:
Q. Do I need to use an additional moisturizer on top of this oil or does this oil work as a moisturizer as well?
A. Kesaradi® Oil is anon-sticky moisturizing oilthat locks moisture in and reduces the need to moisturize again and again. It works very well as a moisturizer and meets most moisturizing demands on its own. However, if you really want to use your daily cream, add a few drops of Kesaradi Oil into it for that extra dose of softness.
Q. Do I need to wash off the face after applying the oil?
A. Wash the face before applying the oil,not after. Kesaradi® Oil works on your skin throughout the day when applied over a well-cleansed face. After washing the face, when the skin is still damp, take 3 drops of the oil in your palm and rub both the hands together. You may need to use fewer or more drops depending on your moisturization needs. Dab gently on the face and spread evenly on your entire face, neck and décolleté. Let it stay on the skin and top it off with your favorite sunscreen or makeup.
Q. Can I wear the oil under sun protection cream and makeup?
A. Yes! As already mentioned, Kesaradi Oil is a great moisturizing oil to be applied under sunscreen. What’s best, you can also apply Kesaradi Oil under your usual makeup.
Q. Is Kesaradi Oil for all skin colors and types?
A. Yes, Kesaradi Oil is suitable for all skin colors and tones.
Q. Does Kesaradi Oil contain preservatives or artificial binders?
A. Unlike most facial oils that are generally a combination of essential oils with some added chemicals, preservatives, binders, stabilizers and fragrances thrown in, Kesaradi Oil is different. iYURA believes in the Ayurvedic concept of skincare where nothing that cannot be eaten should be fed to the skin. Rest assured, Kesaradi Oil does not contain any added chemicals, artificial binders, preservatives, stabilizers, etc.
Q. Is Kesaradi Oil tested on animals?
A. No. iYURA products are never tested on animals. They're cruelty-free and made of 100% pure, natural ingredients.
Q. Is this to be used daily or as needed?
A. Kesaradi Oil works brilliantly if used every day (under sunscreen). With daily use, you can expect revitalized, uber-nourished skin radiating with a calm, rosy glow.
Q. Can I use Kesaradi Oil at bedtime?
A. Kesaradi Oil is a nurturing day oil that's specially made for your daily moisturizing needs. While it can very well be used even at night, for holistic skin care, it’s even better to use a night-time oil, instead.
