What are the effects of wearing
socks or stockings on your skin 

and what is the 1 thing you can do differently, 
to transform the disadvantages of wearing them,
into benefits?!

If you spend long hours just sitting or just standing, or have Varicose Veins,someone would have recommended that you wear stockings, and rightly so.

But what happens when you wear stockings for long hours in a day, especially compression socks? 

Or maybe, we should ask, what happens to your skin when you have to wear them?  

Let’s begin with the beginning: 

Why do people wear compression socks or stockings in the first place?

  • To provide comfort in the case of extra strain on the legs
  • Wearing compressions socks boosts blood circulation
  • It helps decreases swelling 
  • Helps promote lymphatic drainage 
  • Compression stockings help manage low blood pressure when you stand up after a long time of sitting down 
  • Often women choose to wear stockings under dresses to protect themselves from the cold or simply to achieve a certain look. 
  • Wearing stockings can give loose skin on the legs a smooth, toned appearance 
  • Who wears compression socks or stockings?

  • Those going through aches, pains or water retention in the legs 
  • Those who have varicose veins, or want to prevent blood pooling, venous ulcers and deep vein thrombosis in the legs 
  • Those whose professions require them to stand for long hours such as nurses and other healthcare professionals
  • Practitioners, teachers, sales professionals, those that work in the fields of construction, food, retail, hospitality etc. need to wear compression stockings to promote blood flow 
  • Pregnant Women to combat swelling 
  • Aviation professionals or passengers on long or frequent flights 
  • Athletes may wear compression socks to promote blood and oxygen flow or to speed up post-workout recovery  

How does wearing compression socks or stockings affect your skin?

  • Uneven and intense pressure may break the skin, especially in older patients or those with thin, brittle skin  
  • Can cause chafing, irritation, itching, redness 
  • May create reddish dents on your skin
  • Can lead to dryness, besides, it may also take away from your skin by absorbing the moisturizing lotion or  cream 
  • The friction between the fabric and skin can make the skin’s surface rough and uncomfortable and may    also lead to ingrown hair 

What is the 1 thing you can do differently to ensure that you get the benefits of wearing compressions socks or stockings, but not the side-effects?

By changing just 1 thing, taking just 1 step, you can not only continue to enjoy the benefits of wearing compression socks but also: 

  • Prevent dryness, chafing and irritation 
  • Prevent and soothe itching caused due to dryness and friction 
  • Deeply moisturize your skin and keep it hydrated through the day, despite fabric rubbing right against your skin all the time 
  • Make your skin supple, firm and glowing 
  • Feel more comfortable wearing compression socks or stockings frequently 

So, what is that 1 thing you can do differently to enjoy 5 different benefits? 

The answer comes from 5000 years ago in time. 

Since 5000 years, an ancient science called ‘Ayurveda’ has been recommending natural solutions and wellness practices for health and beauty. We say ‘since’ ‘cause it’s a science that’s continued to exist for the last 5000 years, which was the time period to which the first Ayurvedic text was traced back to. Ancient Ayurvedic experts or the ‘doctors’ from ages ago recommended 1 practice, which, when added to your life today, with all its modern problems gives more benefits than you can immediately gauge.  

This practice can replace your daily body moisturizing ritual to drastically improve and elevate its results!  

You will be surprised by the impact of this small change that you can make right away. 

That practice, is the practice of oiling your body, and legs in particular with a specific, ‘herb’icated oil. (In some countries in South-East Asia, Ayurveda is a medical practice and herb-enriched oils are called medicated oils)

Yes, simply replacing your chemical-based moisturizer with an Ayurvedic ‘herb’icated oil can not only significantly change the way your legs look and feel – but also improve your comfort while you’re wearing stockings or compression socks as well as when you take them off to sleep at night! 

But not just any herbicated oil!

In Ayurveda, specific herbs serve a specific purpose and hence in this case, you need to use an authentically prepared oil that uses the following 5 herbs:


Extremely unctuous in nature, the oil made of this lentil intensely moisturizes, softens and plumps the skin. 


Known to retail moisture, rock salt is a rather unique and thoughtful ingredient in this case as it’s very hydrating and keeps the skin supported throughout the long, tiring hours. 


Dill Seeds, apart from having refreshing aromatic benefits, is also known for its ability to provide skin firmness - a claim backed by studies where it's been seen that the tropical application of a formulation containing Dill Seeds can have potentially firm skin!


With an exterior similar to that of Black Gram, slightly bigger however, Velvet Bean, as its name suggests, is known for endowing skin with a soft, velvety texture. Being a rich source of proteins, lipids, minerals and 60 major phytochemicals, Velvet Bean provides nourishing, rejuvenating and soothing comfort to any skincare it’s added to.


A strong youthfulness promoter that helps soften the look of UV induced aging, Nut grass has been in use in ancient Ayurvedic skincare for centuries because of its richness in fatty acids, vitamins and flavonoids.

Where can you find this combination of herbs,
in the right proportions? 

Well, in the US, Canada and Australia, the only place where you can get a combination of these herbs in the form of a dryness combating body oil for older skin, is here – 
iYURA’s Balaayah Black Gram Body Booster.

iYURA, the largest online authentic Ayurveda brand in the US, Canada, Australia has a traditional formulation called Balaayah that has not just these 5, but even more herbs that are extremely beneficial for dry, aging, thinning, mature skin, especially when exposed to sock-stress or the physical stress caused on the skin by wearing socks or stockings or tight clothing for long periods of time. 


  • Unique oil that deeply moisturizes AND hydrates due to the presence of Sesame Seed Oil and Rock Salt.
  • Soothes the skin and helps you get rid of the dry, itchy feeling instantly due to the presence of herbs like Black Gram, Dill Seeds and Nut Grass.
  • Deeply moisturizes due to its rich, balm-like sensation when applied due to the presence of ingredients such as Velvet Beans or Mucuna Pruriens and Castor Oil. 

However, has a super-unique texture that melts into the skin and leaves an almost matte finish, disappearing into the skin – leaving you guessing and with NO residue behind! 

This extraordinary concoction is a masterpiece of Ayurvedic artistry - an ingenious invention that doubles up as a hydrator and moisturizer, brings intensive penetrating powers of 8 herbsand takes the whole game of skincare several notches up... 

Instant, day-long intense moisture 

A rich balm like sensation 

Spiritual after-scent and ultra-moisturized yet non sticky skin

Country Mallow [Abutilon Indicum], Sesame Seed Oil [Sesamum Indicum], Black Gram [Vigna Mungo], Nut Grass [Cyperus Rotundus], Castor [Ricinus Communis], Pluchea [Pluchea Lanceolata], Velvet Bean [Mucuna Pruriens], Himalayan Rock salt, Dill Seeds[Anethum Sowa], Essential Oils of Cardamom [Elettaria Cardamomum], Orange [Citrus Sinensis], Lemongrass [Cymbopogon Flexuosus], Jasmine [Jasminum Grandiflorum].

But well, let’s come to the real question – there are a trillion body oils out there. What’s special about this one?

A lot. iYURA's Ayurveda Experts thought about this, which is why they brought this oil to you!  

  • Due to its unique formulation, unlike most oils, it provides BOTH hydration and moisture
  • A specifically Vata-balancing oil, it has very focused effects on dry, aging skin
  • It is not a simplistic oil blend that anyone can make at home! It is a pure, traditional Ayurvedic oil brew that’s been created by following ancient Ayurvedic procedures. 

Those methods are elaborate and almost painfully laborious! Right from conducting quality control on each herb, to washing, cleaning, drying them, then preparing a paste called ‘Kalka’, and then using that to cook the base oil at specific temperatures and for a specific duration etc.

PHEW! - this process is intense and has transformative effects on the herbs and helps better delivery and absorption of the product.

And then, how many tests iYURA products go through before they’re good to go out is a whole other story we talk about below – you can read it if you want to know how much more superior iYURA products are than any other Ayurvedic products! 

Those days when you feel weak and anxious
Those days when you’re dry and dull
Are now gone -   

Balaayah lifts you up, grounds your heart and indulges your body in rich, luxurious moisture with dewy hydration and your mind in meditative bliss! 

"I’m hooked! I was sceptical but kept seeing the advertisements so I treated myself and wow my skin has been amazing no more itching, I have soft supple skin. ... definitely value for money for what I was originally using and I am recommending to work friends and letting them try mine so they are now going to purchase!"

- Jayne S. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Wow! I have had scaly dry skin since my 20s and have tried a lot of natural oils and body lotions. I have been very impressed with this oil. It smells rather divine after it soaks in (a bit strong going on). My skin looks so lustrous after putting it on. It gives a wonderful (dry not oily looking) sheen. I have noticed the very dry crepey skin above my knee is feeling softer longer. I recently got back from a trip to the desert which always leaves my legs flaky and cracked, but using this while I was there, there was no damage! I am looking forward to seeing how my skin responds after 6-8 weeks!"

- Rebecca B. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"LOVE IT!!!♥️ My skin is transformed. Although I eat healthily and workout 6 days a week nothing gets rid of the signs of aging skin. However thought I’d give this product a go. Results…….AMAZING!!!! Beautiful soft, supple skin I can see a huge difference in the tightness of places on my body ie. Under top of my arms, knees, butt, top of thighs.I LOVE IT!!!! Won’t ever go back now."

"By far the best thing I’ve ever put on my skin
My skin has never been so soft and glowy and honestly, this was after just one application. The results sound so far fetched that you have to try it for yourself. The oil comes in a glass bottle in a beautiful box that just adds to the luxurious feel of this oil. The smell is not overpowering but it is enough to add to the experience and I’m sure you will want to make this part of your daily routine because once you experience the results of this oil, you won’t want to stop using it, although it should maybe come with a warning because as many of us have found out, once you try this you want to try them all! I absolutely love this oil on the back of this I have ordered more products because if they’re as good as this one, everyone will soon see that I’m the queen I always knew I was ;) Seriously though, I highly recommend this oil for beautiful, youthful, soft skin and remember when you’re giving yourself a loving massage with the oil that the word for oil, in the Sanskrit language is Sneha, which means love, so every time you massage this oil into your skin you are actively giving yourself love, and we can never get too much of that."

"Almost 60 and these products have been Life Changing!I was exposed to a lot of sun as a young adult, born in Florida I hit the beach for many years. I am paying the price. My skin is extremley sensitive so I have to be cautious of what I use. I was using creams and my skin was not absorbing them. I came across Ayurveda products and I thought maybe oils would help the dryness and skin damage. This is with out a doubt the best product I have ever used. Iyura Oils and they are incredible. I wake up with soft smooth skin. This line of products is excellent everything I have tried has amazing results. For all those who are skeptical about oils, Please give these products a try especially those with sensitive skin!"
