” Beauty is when you can appreciate yourself. When you love yourself, that is when you’re most beautiful”- Zoe Kravitz
In a world of “Prima donna’s & Primo uomo’s”, everyone wants to always be at their fluttery best. Vanity rates high & in the pursuit of being the best, we tend to take shortcuts or fall prey to trends that rise & fall as the tides on a full moon night.
It is during these episodes, do you need to realise that it’s our roots & traditions that haven’t changed in centuries. Maybe because, those traditions are timeless and maybe because they do not need an upgrade.

About my Kama Ayurveda Masterclass Experience:
I, was invited over by the elegant “Tanya Dhar” , to experience a Beauty Masterclass session, curated by her and the expert panel of Kama Ayurveda.
The slow teasing whiff of turmeric, rose water and saffron was prevalent all across. The warmth of those whiffs had me, smiling ear to ear.
The class started with a one on one consultation with Dr. Sharad Kulkarni, whereby he delved into your skin woes and suggested what essential steps are necessary for the overall well-being of your facial epidermis.
He then went ahead, to give us a brief walkthrough of the essence of Ayurveda and why it is an immaculate option for a life of holistic living.
Whilst the doctor explained, the station was getting prepped, so that we could indulge in some DIY scrub making. Not surprisingly, the scrub proved to be a hit with the ladies.
Here’s the secret recipe for a scrub that guarantees smooth skin:
- Oats – 2 Tbsp
- Honey – 2 Tbsp
- Pure Rose water – 2 Tbsp
- Kama Ayurveda Mridul – 2 Tbsp
- Turmeric – 1/2 tsp
- Sweet Almond Oil- 3 drops
- Lemon Juice – 5 drops
- Rose Petals – 2
Directions : Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Apply on damp skin & exfoliate gently for 3-4 minutes. Rinse off with water & pat dry.
The Masterclass ended with a photo shoot with all the ladies.
And while we bid our adieus, Kama Ayurveda & Tanya, spoiled us with some goodies from “Kama Ayurveda” & the let us have a mason jar of the DIY scrub as well. Pretty us, after all!
