First Beauty Ritual by Forest Essentials


First Beauty Ritual by Forest Essentials


In Ayurveda, the premise of healthy functioning is ample hydration.


One of the most fundamental ways of delivering hydration to the body is through the ritual of Ushapana. This is the first drink of water after one awakens from a night of deep sleep, which signals the body to stimulate and rejuvenate its cells, and prepares it for healthy functioning through the day.


While the ritual hydrates internally, one needs to ensure hydration is delivered externally to the skin too, because plumped, smooth and radiant skin is a function of both internal and external health.


Embodying the ancient wisdom of Ushapana then and akin to the first drink of water, Forest Essentials introduces two unique facial treatment products for all your glow goals.


This facial treatment duo works to enhance and dramatically improve the performance of your everyday beauty ritual. They have been developed to work in conjunction with each other so you get better results using them in tandem.


Think of these products as “prep” steps before the main skincare treatment. The products when used together are meant to supercharge your skincare routine.


Rasa First Care Activating Serum


At the heart of this facial treatment is the Rasa First Care Activating Serum. It is the first leave-on step in your routine. Just as the first drink of water is considered to be the life giving nectar of Earth, the Rasa Activating Serum is the first drink of water for your skin. It activates dehydrated skin cells and aids in the regeneration process.


Regeneration (or cell turnover/renewal) is the process the skin goes through to renew itself—shed the top layer of dead skin and allowing “fresh” “new” skin to radiate and shine through. It does this by boosting hydration levels and proper hydration is what gives skin that glowing, lit from within look. Additionally, having a healthy hydrated skin barrier prevents issues like irritation and allows your complexion to be radiant. The result is skin that has restored its balance and is an ideal canvas for a skincare regime to follow. The skin appears youthful, resilient and positively glowing.

This radiance reviving blend is charged with a hydrating blend of active ingredients including brightening Liquorice, cell turnover boosting Priyangu seed, hydrating Neel Kamal seed, and glycolic acid rich Sweet Potato extract – delivered in an exquisite, fluid translucent texture that your skin is sure to drink up.

The lightweight nature of its texture also permeates the skin more effectively than a thick moisturizer would, to give your skin a new lease of life, making it appear more buoyant and smooth.



Q. What does activating serum mean?


A. Activating serum is the first and essential step in your daily beauty regime.


Q.  What is Rasa Activating serum?


A. It is the first leave-on step in your routine. Just as the first drink of water in the morning is considered to be life giving as it optimizes body functioning for the day, the Rasa Activating Serum is the first drink of water for your skin. It activates dehydrated skin cells and aids in the regeneration process.



Q. Why is it important to use Rasa with Tejal?


A. Because Rasa helps to activate the skin’s hydration levels whereas Tejal absorbs deep into the skin to restore pH imbalance and prepare your skin for the next step in your beauty ritual. The products are designed to work in synergy for optimum results.


 Tejal Essential Balancing Water



The Tejal Balancing Water is a gel-based, rich velvet-textured toner that forms the second step in your beauty ritual.


This Balancing Water immerses your skin in a veil of humectants and nutrients to restore your skin’s optimal pH balance and primes it for absorption of skincare treatments that follow. The result is translucent, well rested and supple skin.


Skin’s optimal pH ranges from 4.5-6.2 and it can be thrown off by cleansing. While a low pH cleanser can help reduce this imbalance, even the water you use to rinse away residue can leave skin in a slightly alkaline state. The Tejal Essential Balancing Water helps neutralise these effects owing to its skin perfecting formula. It normalizes, rebalances and primes the skin through its intense hydrating action. It is designed to work in synergy with your moisturizer by supplying an additional blend of potent antioxidants, skin-replenishing, and restorative ingredients. Indeed, a moisturizer penetrates better when the skin is optimally hydrated!



The Tejal Essential Balancing Water, a harmonising potion, is fortified with a special complex that drenches skin with the purity and potency of hydrating hyaluronic acid and Aloe Vera, brightening Mandarin peel extract, anti-microbial Chaulai leaf, moisturizing Soya bean seed and age defying Haritaki. Think of this as a mega multi vitamin for the skin.






Q. How Tejal - balancing water is different from other toners?


Ans. Tejal is a gel based toner which works in conjunction with the Rasa serum for deep hydration.


 Q.What isHyaluronic acid?


Ans. Natural hyaluronic acid is derived from sweet potato which is a powerful humectant or moisture binding agent, which attracts moisture and seals it into the skin. This helps to keep the skin plump, hydrated and youthful. 


Q. What is PH? What is the correct PH of the face?


Ans.PH is used to quantify acidic or alkaline nature. Skin’s optimal pH ranges from 4.5-6.2 and it can be thrown off by cleansing. The Tejal Essential water restores the PH balance of the skin.


Q. When to use Tejal in your beauty regime?


A. It is suggested to be used in a daily skin care regime. After cleansing your face, use Rasa Activating serum followed by Tejal Balancing water to prepare your skin for moisturising. Next, use your moisturizer as usual.



The Rasa First Care Activating Serum and Tejal Essential Balancing Water combined create the perfect synergy for the most pleasurable yet effective beauty routine!
