To throw light on how these ingredients can help one’s skin and hair, we have Director of Paul Penders, Sargam Dhawan enlightening us about the natural benefits of each of them.
The following are the ingredients:

– Green Tea
Benefits of each of the ingredients towards skin and hair care
“It is rich in vital vitamins, namely vitamin A, C and E. All of these vitamins enable hair repair by promoting cell regeneration. This ingredient also helps in cleansing the scalp by getting rid of unwanted residue and rejuvenating hair follicles. In terms of skin care, it helps in relaxing irritated skin. It uses the same functionality of cell rebuilding as in the case of hair repair to promote new cell growth of the skin,” says Sargam.
This ingredient has been used for body care since ancient times. Its benefits of keeping one’s skin glowing and hair lustrous are widely known. Sargam shares, “Out of the many, coconut milk benefits both hair and skin. It helps in moisturising the skin by battling dryness and prevents premature aging due to the presence of Vitamin C. Due to its conditioning properties, coconut milk aids in restoring dry and damaged hair when applied to the roots.”
Filled with Vitamin C and other nutrients, lemon as a fruit and its peel has multiple advantages. It has elements that lighten skin tone, reduce scar marks and so on. “Being a part of the citrus fruit family, it has a number of benefits. Its properties help in the disposal of blackheads by removing them effectively. In addition to this, lemon is widely used to get rid of discolouration in both elbows and knees by working as a bleaching agent. In terms of hair care, lemon extract/juice aids in balancing the pH(potential of hydrogen) levels of the scalp, which treats itchiness and infections resulting in shiny hair,” says Sargam.
While drinking green tea has numerous health benefits, applying it to the skin and hair is also gaining popularity to get desirable results. Sargam explains, “Green tea is widely used for skin care for its anti-inflammatory properties, which aids in getting rid of swelling, puffy eyes, redness, skin irritation, etc. In addition, green tea is overloaded with Vitamin E and Vitamin B12, both of which are considered crucial in maintaining the health of the body. It is also beneficial for the hair due to the presence of antioxidants and nutrients such as Vitamin B, which promotes healthy hair by strengthening hair roots and controlling split ends.”

Sargam further suggests, “Coconut milk can be used as an exfoliator for the skin when mixed with oats. For the hair, it can be mixed with the shampoo or conditioner. For a direct application, coconut milk can be used to massage the hair and scalp before hair wash.
