The Best Forest Essentials Products to Travel Bright this Summer
For long Ayurveda beauty products were limited to the confines of Indian homes; concoctions of powdered herbs, whipped cream, husked lentils and ground flours cropped up on the vanity shelves of many, for daily habitual use.
However, at a time when dashing through airport terminals has become functional - whether for leisure or for career, and with the unfeasibility of carrying jars filled with potent herbs and viscous pastes; most often than not our suitcases and our skin have become accustomed to chemically endowed facial mists and masques for their ease of use and quick pick-me-up effects, in between runway touchdowns and hotel check-ins.
Forest Essentials was born on the premise that the key to wellness, inner harmony and overall beauty should not be as difficult to achieve as life might make it seem today. Instead, being able to connect the indispensable links between the past and present, adapting long standing traditions of the past to the fast paced ways of today is what characterizes our ethos.
Following suit, here is a list of our natural skin care products that now come in travel kit sizes, infused with the same age old Indian ingredients and recipes that for many of us seem like an elusive luxury to procure and prepare today. In easy to use and hand luggage sizes, these ensure that even the most travel fatigued of us arrive at our destinations looking and feeling fresh-faced and radiant.
- Arrive Hydrated
A makeup meltdown is the last thing you want during a long flight. The Forest Essentials pure and active steam distilled water-based toners, are made from floral, fruit and herbal extracts, captured and crystallized at the height of potency; to hydrate, tone and refresh the skin.
Choose from the Panchpushp or the Pure Rosewater Facial Tonic Mists that come in easy to carry 50 ml sizes and spritz over the face to revive makeup and make it last through the rest of your journey. For those of you who don’t apply makeup, these hydrators work wonderfully to simply give skin a boost of hydration amidst the drying atmosphere of the flight.
- For More Than Fragrance
We’ve all faced the discomfort of spraying on heady, volatile perfumes whose whiffs can make heads turn in the cosy cabin area of a flight. To save you from such hassle (and space), opt for the Forest Essentials Bath & Shower Oils that are available in 50 ml sizes. These light textured oils are prepared with the pure, fragrant essential oils derived from precious flowers, including the Kannauj Rose and the Madurai Jasmine. All you have to do is gently massage the oil into your pulse points for a deep fragrance that diffuses over time and leaves skin scented for hours.
These sensual oil blends also double as shimmering body oils to infuse your skin with sheer glow, smoothness and a layer of intense moisture.
- Inflight Therapy
For those of you who want to maximize your slumber in flight and those who get stressed out during travel, the Forest Essentials Stress Relief and Tranquil Sleep come in 10 ml sizes to work miracles on your senses. We like to call the Stress Relief spray – zen in a bottle. It’s made with an aromatic blend of 100% pure Lime, Lavender and Peppermint essential oils that drives away stress to leave you calm in its wake.
The Tranquil Sleep spray is sleep in a bottle – it contains Nutmeg, Lavender, Sandalwood and Geranium essential oils to relax and lull you into deep sleep. You can spray these onto your wrists and temple points or onto your pillow for immediate results.
- Replenish Moisture
At 30000 feet, cabin air can be as drying as the desert heat for your skin. For people with dry skin this can mean further dryness, redness and dullness, and for those with oily skin it can mean increased oil production and greasiness as your skin attempts to counteract the effects of dry air. Forest Essentials Delicate Facial Cleansers come to your rescue in handy 50 ml sizes and as per your skin type: the Mashobhra Honey & Vanilla facial cleanser for normal to dry skin type and the Kashmiri Saffron & Neem for normal to oily skin. These are unique in that they are SLS and SLES chemical free cleansers, which means they do not strip your skin of moisture. Instead they contain pure, fresh and natural herbs and essential oils that cleanse your skin for hydration and glow.
- Soothe & Smooth
ith raw honey sourced from Mashobhra, which is a natural humectant that has the ability to bind to water in the atmosphere and seal it into your lips, making them the best lip balms for dry lips. Choose from Narangi Glaze, Sugared Rose, and Kokum & Honey as your lip care of choice.
