With the monsoons setting in and the rains healing and soothing the chapped soil, it becomes equally essential to invest in a good moisturizer which soothes your skin and gives you an even complexion without making your skin uncomfortable.
Gels are generally preferred more in summers than creams because of their light texture. Aloe vera gel had ruled the beauty industry and its amazing results on skin and hair had made it almost invincible, till the industry was taken by a beauty storm named the bamboo gel.
The bamboo gel as the name suggests is obtained from the extracts of bamboo. It is not only used in beauty products but also in supplements. The most essential reasons why one should invest in bamboo gel are as follows.
1. LIGHT IN TEXTURE
Gels as compared to creams as earlier mentioned are lighter in texture than creams. Creams are generally heavier in texture and specially in summers become uncomfortable to carry as oil secretion in the skin is more in summers than other seasons.
Bamboo gel, hence is lighter and does not sweat out or bleed in the summer time, giving the skin a matte look. Even in the monsoon season when the skin tends to get sticky it still remains intact making the skin comfortable and breathable.
2. EASY ABSORPTION IN THE SKIN
There are many gels also which take a lot of time to get absorbed in the skin, which makes the process of applying gels tedious. The bamboo gel, due to its light texture gets easily absorbed in the skin, almost instantly and gives a soothing feel to the skin like never before. It can also be used for massaging when used in more quantity.
3. RICH IN SILICA
As we grow older the silica present in our body keeps decreasing which in turn pace up the ageing process in the skin, causing wrinkles. Especially after the age of 40, the body does not even come to know about the silica deficiency.
Moreover, the collagen damage in the skin which is also caused due to the silica deficiency can make the skin look lifeless and dull. Hence, liberal application of bamboo gel gradually increase the silica content in the skin, making the skin look more radiant and wrinkle free as well. The silica supplements are also made of bamboo extracts.
4. SUPER HAIR TONIC
Bamboo gel can also be used on the hair and acts as a replenishment to the scalp. Just like our skin even the hair tends to loose the silica content with growing age. This gel soothes the skin and also helps in getting rid of all the excess build up on the scalp.
You can massage the bamboo gel for 5 mins, keep it for half an hour and then wash it off with a shampoo and nourish with a conditioner for best results. For optimum results a fortnightly usage is sufficient.
5. CAN BE USED AS A FACE MASK
Bamboo gel can also be used as a face mask for a radiant skin. When we use bamboo gel as a regular moisturiser it is used in lesser quantity but if one wants to use it as a face mask, one should apply a thick layer of bamboo gel on the skin after thoroughly washing it with a face was and then leave the product on the skin for 15 to 20 mins or rather let the product get completely absorbed by the skin.
The results would definitely surprise you. 🙂
