For Urban Veda, what they leave out is just as important as what they leave in.

Urban Veda is a skin care range that is now available in the UAE and is based on the ancient principles of Ayurveda. Originating 5000 years ago, Ayurveda’s holistic health and wellbeing system is based on the holistic and therapeutic properties of plants and promotes the idea of using nature to live a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.

Each of the Urban Veda ranges use a bespoke selection of natural ingredients designed to suit different skin types, which in the principles of Ayurveda are associated with ‘doshas’ (Vata, Pitta and Kapha). This is the Ayurvedic term to describe the physical and emotional tendencies in our mind and body.

Vata skin can be dry, delicate, cool, rough and flaky, and can be vulnerable to exposure and dry wind. It is important to use replenishing moisturizers, and to boost hydration by splashing your face several times when you cleanse.

Pitta skin tends to be fair and sensitive, and the heat that Pitta can generate in the body is generally indicated by moles, rosacea, rashes, acne and a tendency to burn in the sun easily. Pitta skin needs cooling and nurturing and a soothing skincare regime.

Kapha skin is usually oily with large pores. Tolerant to sun, Kapha’s excess oil demonstrates a greater predilection to blackheads and needs regular detoxification. Kapha skincare should be stimulating with regular cleansing of the face; at least twice daily, and deep exfoliation at least once a week.

One of our favorite products from the brand is the Radiance Replenishing Night Cream, which is ideal for Vata skin. Brimming with phytonutrients and antioxidants, the bioactive infusion is enriched with an anti-inflammatory peptide sequence to impart a luminosity to skin, helping to balance tone and correct signs of hyperpigmentation. Deeply moisturizing bio-oils are combined with Ayurvedic extracts to boost collagen production and skin elasticity, ensuring you wake with plump, youthful, hydrated skin.

Formula wise, the cream is remarkable because it’s light enough to be a gel but has the hydrating oomph of a heavy-duty moisturizer. Once applied, it spreads easily over the face and sinks in rapidly while leaving a velvet-like finish. It also smells divine. This is a great night cream for skin that could do with a little extra TLC, especially during the upcoming winter months.

Urban Veda products can be ordered online at www.basharacare.com and this cream costs 135AED.
