My experience with Patanjali Kesar

Patanjali Kesar comes packed in a minuscule plastic container with an additional packing to prevent spillage. The packing is very simple and it raises doubts regarding the authenticity of the Kesar that eventually reaches me because the package can be conveninetly opened and the product tampered with. So, on account of packaging, it is poor because for the price being paid, one naturally expects better packaging at least to allay one’s fear to landing with adulterated products.

However, I have used almost half the amount of kesar in the container by now and I am assured regarding its authenticity πŸ™‚ All skin types, in my opinon can use Kesar conveniently. It neither dries out dry skin nor makes oily face look all the more oily. In fact, it is one of those few wonder ingredients that can be used with abandon by all skin types. I hereby, enlist the ways in which oily, dry and normal skin can incorporate Patanajali Kesar in their skin care regimen to draw its benefits πŸ™‚ So take a look on?How to Use Patanjali Kesar for Face.

For dry skin – Mix sufficient quantity of raw Aloe vera juice with a few (around 3-4) strands of Patanjali kesar. Let it stay undisturbed for at least 1 hour. After an hour, the color of the gel would have turned yellow more or less. You can apply it on your face and skin and let it dry. Wash off after an hour and get brightened complexion. By that, I do not mean “fair skin”. I mean skin which is cleared off all its inherent impurities πŸ™‚ If you find the concoction a bit runny, you can add a heaped tablespoon of Etheric Rose petal powder, mix it well and then apply on you face and skin. Use it twice a week.

For oily skin – Mix 3 tablespoons of buttermilk (called Chhachh in Hindi) with 3-4 strands of Patanjali Kesar. Leave the concoction undisturbed for about an hour after which it would have turned yellow in appearance. If you are fine with the runny consistency of the concoction, then apply it as it as. Keep it for an hour and then wash off. If you aren’t, add a heaped tablespoon of Multani mitti?and then apply the concoction. This remedy can be used twice a week.

For normal skin – In a bowl containing 3 tbsp of milk, add 3-4 strands of Patanjali kesar. Leave it undisturbed for an hour. After an hour, when the mixture would have turned yellow, if you are fine with the runny texture, apply it on you face and neck. If not, add a tbs of either Etheric rose petal powder or besan. Keep it for an hour and wash off later, with ample cold water. It can be used twice a week conveniently.

I have dry skin and follow the above remedy twice a week (of course, it can be used more often in case you wish to ) πŸ™‚ and the results are noteworthy. Not only has my skin smoothed out but also there’s a marked difference in the way my skin looked. The dullness and tiredness is solely eliminated with a noticeable glow conspicuously visible πŸ™‚ The time for results to show will naturally vary depending on your skin’s present condition, frequency of usage, diet and weather conditions. So please don’t expect overnight miracles as they show in movies or advertisements. It’s a natural remedy so, it will take time to get used to your skin. Being patient is indispensable.

Patanjali Kesar is not only readily available and an economical option as compared to other Kesar brands, but also efficacious in pampering your skin provided it is used regularly and in unison with ingredients that suit your skin type.
