I am going to have three skincare stories in a row but I did not get paid to test these products I did receive the products and really liked them so that is why I am writing about them. I am also trying to revamp my beauty regimen as much as possible to be natural and from the earth and non – toxic – no parabens and brands like this make that possible. Also I think you can have a favorite moisturizer from one brand, mask from another and toner from a few ( I like switching up my toner), serums can be mixed and changed too – that makes it fun – it is like perfume or sunglasses you should have a good array. I also think cleansers and masks are fun to switch up so I love discovering brands that have good stories, entrepreneur spirit and also are HEALTHY.
I love that when we talk about Ayurvedic we are also talking about YOGA – I love yoga especially practicing with one of my best friends, Laura Patterson, who is in New York and set up amazing yoga work here in New York – SOUL CENTERED YOGA -https://www.soulcenteredself.com/
So when you practice yoga you also want to make sure your body is being taken care of in all regards —

Founder Lisa wanted to share mindful living with the rich heritage of the Ayurvedic traditions
Sahajan, An Evidence- Based Natural Skincare Line based on the 5,000 year old science of Ayurveda.
Derived from the Hindi word for “intuitive” – Sahajan brings you the evidence to follow your intuition and chose clean beauty.
Lisa is from Kerala, in Southern India. In such a lush environment, it’s easy to incorporate natural ingredients into your life. Her parents would take a coconut from their plantations and mill it fresh for oil, or whip up treatments for any skin complaint with what was on hand in the kitchen. It turned out that when she was told to put turmeric on a pimple or coconut oil in my hair, there was science behind it, a science that’s 5,000 years old.
Being over 40 you want products that try to keep the wrinkles away and keep the ones you are starting to get at bay they sent me this product and my skin looks GOOOOOOOD since I tried using it

Ayurveda, “The Science of Life”
Ayurveda, translated from Sanskrit, means the Science of Life. It’s a mind-body science that reminds that us we need to be in balance. Modern day stressors, the environment, and our diet get us out of balance. Ayurveda seeks to understand each person’s unique needs and looks to plant-based remedies, yoga, meditation and other practices to achieve that balance.
