Amla for Skin:
1. Anti Aging
Amla has anti ageing properties. So drink a glass of amla juice daily in the morning and prevent wrinkles.
2. Skin Cleanser
Amla can be used as a skin cleanser. Mix amla powder and olive oil or jojoba oil. Wet your face and use the mixture as a cleanser.
3. Controls Oiliness
For those who have oily skin can mix amla powder and rose water. Use this mixture regularly since the result can’t be noticed overnight.
4. Reduce Pores
Amla has astringent properties and it reduces the pore size naturally.
5. Dry Skin
For those who have dry skin can mix amla juice, yogurt and rose water. Apply this mixture for 20 minutes and wash off with water. Your skin will remain soft and supple for the entire day.
6. Skin Elasticity:
Drinking a glass of amla juice daily will make you free from all the problems of skin. It will brighten your skin and will make it healthy naturally. It provides elasticity in the skin and thus lowering the chances of getting wrinkles early.
Amla Benefits for Hair:
As for the skin, amla is good for hair too. Amla prevents the premature graying of hair. It helps reduce hair fall. It soothes the scalp and prevents dandruff.
Following are certain uses of amla that are good for hair :
7. Shiny Hair:
Mix amla juice and olive oil in equal quantities. Apply this concoction for an hour on your hair and wash your hair. You will notice that your hair becomes shiny and soft.
8. Amla Homemade Hair Oil:
You can prepare amla oil at home also. Mix amla powder and coconut oil and boil it. Make sure that the powder does not becomes black. It just needs to be mixed well. Now let it cool and then strain the mixture. This is the home made natural amla oil. Mustard oil or almond oil can be used instead of coconut oil. I use mustard oil but while boiling it, it doesn’t smells nice. But as they say no pain no gain (all taurean females can understand that why do I stress more on fragrance.) Use this amla oil to prevent hair loss, dandruff and premature graying of hair.
9. Amla Shampoo
Amla can also be used in homemade shampoos. Amla reetha and shikakai mixed together is the best shampoo for hair. Its natural and safe. Apart from skin and hair amla has medicinal properties too. Apart from being the richest source of vitamin c it also is rich in anti oxidants too. It helps to purify blood and strengthens heart muscles. It helps to control blood sugar and cholesterol. It reduces the risk of cataract and loss of eye vision. It also helps in improving the digestive system and relieves constipation. It is also helpful in controlling hypertension.
The list of benefits is long. I hope you enjoyed the post and I hope that you will have more of amla pickles, candies, juice and murabbas! 🙂
