Prana means life energies or vital principles - Aroha's 5 Prana skin rituals are designed based on the energies & nutriments required for a radiating skin.

Let's understand this skincare system in detail -
I] Tejasvi :
USE: Light moisturizing face gel.
AYURVEDA SAYS: Your skin is the freshest in the morning after it rejuvenates itself with restful sleep and the nourishing skincare rituals from the night before that add to the skin’s health and luminosity. Since your skin is at its most sensitive and fragile state after waking up, you must avoid using chemical cleansers in the morning, as these can harm the skin in the long run. Herbs infused gels help to moisturize the face & also helps to hydrate skin and retain moisture with its ability to hold up 100 times its own weight in water. Avoid using face creams or moisturizers on the face. Ayurveda suggests the ritual of Ushapana, or the first drink of water to activate the body’s systems for the day, We do the same for our skin when we put a gel on our face.
RITUAL: Apply a generous layer of the gel on clean skin and massage onto face and neck in circular motions with a light hand avoiding eyes. Should be done once a day at least (in the morning) but can be repeated for extra dry skin before bedtime.

II] Taza :
USE: A high quality of rose toner
AYURVEDA SAYS: Ayurveda describes Rose as Taruni - which means ‘unimaginably beautiful. Other than keeping the skin pH balanced - It also helps in soothing, relaxing, energizing, or even calming to burns and inflammation. Pure rose water helps to keep the skin hydrated and toned. A rose toner is preferred to any other flower toner for the potency and benefits rose mist offers for the face.

PRODUCT RECOMMENDED: Dhund - Pure Rose Toner from Kannauj - The most coveted variety of roses with immense skin benefits.
USE: High-quality herbs infused Body oils.
AYURVEDA SAYS: Herbs-Infused oils free from any perfumes, dyes or chemicals are best for nourishing your skin daily. The oil nourishes the skin, penetrates deeper into the skin into the muscles and joints, and provides lubrication to the deeper tissues of the body. Ayurveda intrinsically suggests a slow and gradual approach to beauty, as opposed to momentary instant results. Exploring the idea of ritualization of holistic beauty, celebrating mindfulness and self-expression, we encourage you to treat yourself to the ritual of the Rasa.
RITUAL - Apply a generous amount onto the body and hands, massaging with circular movements until absorbed. Apply right after bath or shower to damp skin. It helps to keep the skin moisturized and supple all day and also provides daily nutrients to the skin.

IV] Jevi :

All this has great effect on our face and we need to rejuvenate our face by applying a quality herb-infused serum to help it nourish & rejuvenate.

AYURVEDA SAYS: Foot & hand massage just before you sleep can do wonders for your skin. As it helps to calm your nerve & promote deep sleep resulting in better skin. A good herb-infused balm for foot massage can help to rejuvenate the foot cells and helps to reduce stress and heal our body, mind, and consciousness. This simple act is one of the most vital aspects and is often missed by many in their skin rituals. It has phenomenal effect on the over skin texture and delays ageing of the skin.
