Unlock a Deep Secret to Deep Cleansing

The average percentage of water in the human body hovers around 60%. Of course, this varies with factors such as age, gender, body type and activity – generally it ranges between 45 and 75%. Again, different organs and parts of the body have their own hydration percentages. For example, the brain and kidney comprise as much as 80-85% water; the heart, lungs, muscles, liver and skin fall into the 70-80% range; blood, 50%; bones 20-25%; and teeth barely 8-10%.

But regardless of their water content, every part of the body requires water to function properly. So, wouldn’t it be nice to have some kind of indicator that warns you when you’re getting dehydrated. That’s in the mix too. Quite a few indictors – one of them being skin.

In fact, skin is one of the best indicators. If you pay heed carefully, it informs you of dehydration throughout the body. Indicated by patches of rough, scaly or itchy skin. Fine lines, dull complexion and loss in elasticity are also indicators.

Dry and Dehydrated Skin
Dry skin and dehydrated skin aren’t necessarily the same thing, even though both may seem similar. Dehydrated skin generally points to insufficient consumption of water. Dry skin may be a result of low production of natural oils. This can come about because of skin conditions like dermatitis or eczema. Exposure to extreme elements, especially sun, can cause damage too. Frequent washing with chemical-laden soaps or similar products can also erode these natural oils and leave the skin dry.

Does this mean you should stop washing your skin, and especially your face? Absolutely not! Not cleansing especially the skin on your face can result in several other health issues. The key lies in what you’re using to wash your face. Be very careful of what touches the delicate skin of your face.

The Magic of Ubtan
In this regard you can never go wrong with herbal or Ayurvedic products. They are made from organic, natural herbs and hence not given to side effects. An Ubtan face wash is the best bet for face cleansing.

The word Ubtan is derived from the Sanskrit term ‘Udvartana’ which means ‘to cleanse and beautify the body’. As a product, Ubtan is a cleansing paste indicated in ancient Ayurvedic treatises, and used down the centuries in the Indian subcontinent, especially during sacred rituals – predominantly weddings. But while it is a favourite with brides, it does not mean that others cannot use it. In fact, they should, and must – as part of their face-cleansing routine.

It’s the ingredients and their proportions that make an Ubtan face wash what it is meant to be – a herbal mixture of lentils, flowers, roots, grains and herbs. Turmeric, Sandalwood and Rose are some of the key ingredients, but several other herbs go into the mix for maximum effect. It is believed that between them, they possess the anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties to exfoliate dead skin cells, reverse the effects of pollution and grime, shield the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, and generally leave it soft, supple and radiant.

It is possible to create an Ubtan of your own, however, you would have to get all the compositions and percentages absolutely right. Easier and more effective to go into the market and identify an Ubtan face wash that ticks all the boxes of authenticity, safety and efficacy.
