8 Amazing Beauty Benefits of Amla Juice

shutterstock_154121807 Amla to me is synonymous to growing up in the backyard of my dearest Nani (grandma). We kids loved it. We loved it for its sourness and the luscious bite, of course chewing on the seed till it gave way was a favourite pastime of sorts too. We really loved the seed- a bitterish, sweetish taste that was the ultimate prize. My grandma insisted we eat amla every day. Her reasons for us to eat healthy foods were plenty- some made up I dare say! She would often say, amla has the strength of  8 eggs. This went down very heavily with us- why were we needed to be this strong? I rather eat boiled eggs anyway! Despite giving a valiant fight for the sake of it, we all loved amla in every form. We loved the amla sweets she made, the picked amla, the sweetened syrupy amla and the fruit itself.   It was only when I was a tad grown up that she revealed that amla would make us girls so pretty that our skin would shine strong enough that we won’t need lights on in the night. Damn, we all believed her too. I remember those days so fondly and with an ache too. My grandma has gone but her wisdom lives in each of us cousins. shutterstock_541606501 As I charted my career in beauty science and in helping people to stay healthy naturally amla came up tops in the preservation of skin health and physical health. It's famed as an elixir for rejuvenating skin in many ways. Some of these are: 1. Amla helps treat pigmentation. It's reputed for its lightening qualities as its loaded with citric benefits due to the high levels of vitamin c. 2. Amla is loaded with anti-oxidants that repel the free radicals and help in anti-aging. 3. Amla is also used to gently and slowly bleach the skin. With regular use, amla gradually lightens the skin and in some cases, can lighten the complexion by a few shades in fact. 4. Amla has curative properties that help tighten skin laxity. It is extremely beneficial in reducing open pores and minimising their appearance. 5. Amla helps in tightening the skin as it tones it. When your skin loses collagen, its tissues lose firmness and softness. Vitamin C is an excellent collagen booster, making your skin soft, supple, toned and youthful. 6. Amla juice is very curative due to the high content of vitamin c in it. It helps speed up the repair and rejuvenation of the damaged tissue. So, it works very well in lightening scars from acne or mild abrasions. 7. Amla is also famed for helping reduce the life cycle of acne once these breakout. Dabbing it on the acne helps reduce inflammation too. 8. Amla seed powder is a good reach-out-to product to keep handy. It can be mixed with aloe gel to make a gentle scrub for all skin types. Natural products can also be allergens to us. Just like some people have lactose intolerance or gluten sensitivity. So, before you start any treatment with amla or for that matter any natural product it’s wise to do a patch test. You can do an amla patch test by applying the juice to the jawline as well as dabbing some on your cheeks. If you feel a little tingling- it’s nothing to worry about. It’s the juice going to work on your skin repairing it. However, if it gets unbearable and starts getting red, it’s advisable to wash the area with some chilled water and dab the area with ice for 4-5 mins. Then dab dry with a tissue. Click on the next page to read about amla remedies for different skin types! shutterstock_265742975 Amla can be used differently for different skin types. Here are some different remedies that you can use: a) Oily skin: take half a teaspoon of honey and add 1 teaspoon lemon juice to it. Mix well. Now take a tablespoon of amla pulp and mix all three together. Blend well. Apply this pack on cleansed, toned skin. Keep for 20 mins and wash using cold water. This pack can cause mild tingling as it goes to work. However, if it gets unbearable use cold water to wash off and dab ice covered in a tissue. It’s a more soothing experience to use skin wrapped as oppose to direct as that can further exacerbate the burning. As with all skin care that has a peeling effect, it’s a good idea to help the skin with a protective barrier of sunscreen.  The skin needs protection after any mask or face pack is used. b) IF you have acne or your skin is prone to breakouts, adding a small sprig of mint leaves and parsley crushed helps provide the anti-bacterial effect. This helps minimise the acne as well as helps heal the current breakout. c) Amla also is an excellent choice of natural treatments to help in tightening the pores and rejuvenating the skin. Use crushed amla with rice powder to make a paste and apply all over face paying special attention to the pores. d) IF you have dry skin and suffer from acne or blemishes a good recipe to use is to pulp amla finely and add ½ teaspoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of rice powder. Make a wet sand consistency paste adding more oil if you need. Apply this pack to cleansed, toned and dry skin. Keep it on for 20 mins and wash off with warm water. e) If you have sensitive skin, it's strongly recommended that you do a patch test first. If you don’t react unfavourably to amla patch test then go ahead and use this pack. Add a crushed tablespoon of amla seeds to an equal amount of curd and honey mix to make a paste. Alternatively, pure aloe vera gel is a good substitute for yoghurt. Best beauty treatments fail if we don’t pay attention to what we are eating. For best results adding at least two fruits of amla to your diet as either powder or juice or morabba (amla preserve) works wonders in accelerating your skin's recovery.
