Skin Care and Gut Health with Taza Ayurveda

Skin Care and Gut Health with Taza Ayurveda

After one heck of a rollercoaster ride in 2020, we believe that 2021 will be a year where more people will begin to look for ways to live better. And we couldn’t be more excited. If COVID-19 taught us one thing, life is fragile, so now is the time to awaken a healthier mind and body.  With this plan in mind, we are happy to share some incredible ideas for revitalizing your skincare and gut health with Taza Ayurveda.

The Pros of Ayurvedic Beauty

Ayurvedic medicine is one of the globe's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing treatments. And although it may be a relatively new term to people in the United States, it was actually developed more than 5,000 years ago in India. What is Ayurveda? It is a philosophy based on the belief that wellness and health depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main objective is to promote good health rather than fighting disease. What a concept! Ayurveda practitioners believe that each person consists of five primary elements found in our universe: space, air, fire, water, and earth. These elements combine in the human body to form three essential life energies, called doshas, that basically control how your body works. There are three doshas: Vata dosha (space and air), Pitta dosha (fire and water), and the Kapha dosha (water and earth). These holistic treatments can include everything from skincare to herbal teas to massage therapy and yoga.

Ayurvedic Beauty or skincare products practice a mind-body approach to better skin. These skincare products are made from organic ingredients and are free of synthetics, and can even be formulated to match individual doshas. Some of the incredible benefits of Ayurvedic beauty include improving hair and skin conditions as well as acting to shield skin from moisture loss. And, because they are made with natural ingredients, there are little to no side effects. 

Meet Taza Ayurveda

Who are the women behind this incredible Taza Ayurveda brand? This dynamic duo first met at Columbia Business School and had relied on Western science to address their health and wellness concerns. Divya grew up in India and used wellness type products regularly long before they became trendy. She didn’t fully understand their benefits at the time, but after moving to the USA to pursue her dream, she would. While pursuing her education and ultimately her career, she fell out of step with nature and found herself unbalanced. Luckily her roots came to her rescue, providing a natural and holistic solution to her imbalanced life while planting a seed for her next endeavor - a new American dream.

Amy, on the other hand, discovered Ayurveda after the stresses of modern city life took their toll on her health —you know the grind… the dreaded long commutes, and long work weeks that left her physically and mentally exhausted. She found herself uninspired and out of touch with who she truly wanted to be, so she turned to the ancient wellness system, Ayurveda, and was absolutely astonished by its profound healing power. Soon, she was reconnected with Divya, her dear friend from business school, and they dedicated themselves to bringing Ayurveda to the world through Taza. And the rest, they say, is history.

One of the things that we love the most about Taza, is that not only are they making our wellness and lives better, but they are also giving back and helping those in need. Divya and Amy pride themselves on nurturing others. In conjunction with their partners who support them, they pledge to give a portion of all Taza profits to local Ayurvedic hospitals that will help cover the treatment costs of those who are less fortunate.

Our Favorite Taza Ayurveda Products

These ingenious and passionate ladies launched their Taza Ayurveda beauty line with three essential products - a digestive supplement, a facial oil, and a universal oil. When it comes to wellness programs, we always knew about focusing on your mind. But now, we are super excited about the products that Divya and Amy have created. The incredible transformation that they can have on our skin’s beauty and the health of our gut is mind-blowing. Are you ready to discover the Taza advantage? Take a look at their first three products. We think you’ll love them!

Taza Facial Oil

Channeling the power of nature’s nineteen most effective ingredients, Taza’s facial oil is a multi-correctional power formula. What makes it so great and possibly the best Ayurvedic beauty product on the market? At the center of this unique formula lies Himalayan Saffron. This distinctive saffron has been clinically proven to reduce redness, fight inflammation, and increase luminosity in just sixteen short days. And that’s not even the best part! It also helps to reduce fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles. So, with this one product, you can tackle many of the skin issues we all can suffer with.

Taza Digestive Supplement

Nutritionists and scientists alike believe that the beginning of “good health” starts in your gut. While our diets don’t always consist of the best choices, it’s not that complicated to support a healthy gut. Taza’s digestive supplement is a powerful formula including eight clinically proven ingredients, three of which may be the key to its extreme success. Traditionally known as the King of Medicine, Chebulic Myrobalan defends your gut lining from those potentially dangerous pathogens, while Ceylon Leadwort and Castor Root gently detoxify and ease any digestive discomfort. If you struggle with poor digestion and discomfort, you should check this product out!

Taza Universal Oil

Finally, the secret to radiant skin! The Taza Universal Oil uses Indian Frankincense, Pearl Powder, and Himalayan Cedar to heal and soothe, while Shala Tree promotes calmness and vitality. And if you suffer from eczema or dermatitis, this could be a product for you. It includes Antimicrobial Beautyleaf, which has been used for centuries to relieve both conditions.

Loofah, Bath Brush

For the ultimate body and soul pampering, you have to add the Taza loofah bath brush to your daily bath routine. It’s a 100% biodegradable product that is made from mature Agave leaves, stuffed with fresh Vetiver roots, and woven together using ancient techniques. It fits perfectly in your hand with a thin strap for comfort and takes no time to unleash and rejuvenate beautiful skin.

The magic in the Taza loofah lies in the coarse texture that stimulates your skin and helps to eliminate toxins while exfoliating dead skin to leave the body soft and glowing. But it doesn’t stop there! While using the Taza loofah, the Vetiver roots go through a natural grinding process that releases anti-inflammatory properties relaxing the mind and body, and they are naturally antimicrobial (that’s a technical term for destroying or inhibiting the growth of all microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi, and viruses, a must in today’s society!).

For thousands of years, Ayurvedic treatments have helped increase the beauty and vitality of skin in the Eastern hemisphere and create a good gut health balance. Now we are fortunate that the team of Divya and Amy have introduced it to the West. Taza is the only Certified Ayurvedic brand in the U.S. and Europe to provide authentic Ayurvedic wellness essentials.  We can’t wait for you to see (and feel) the results!
