Kashmir is famous for its heavenly beauty as well as its beautiful girl whose natural beauty and the gorgeous look is undoubtedly eye-catching. The weather is really refreshing and rejuvenating for every human being. We can see the weather impact on everyone irrespective of gender. But, at the same time, they do have their own ways to pamper their skin. We are very well known with the name or ingredient of saffron which enriches Kashmir for its beauty as well as its utility in skin-caring. Along with saffron, we will know what are the rest and best natural ingredients they are using for their white pink rosy skin.
Overall, they are very simple and live a minimalistic lifestyle, hence they believe in natural beauty more. It’s not that they do not have the reach to good drugstore brands, but generally, they use certain ingredients at home and believe that it has contributed to the way their skin looks.
Let’s discuss what these wonder ingredients are:
Saffron: Without the saffron discussion about Kashmir remains really incomplete because Kashmiri saffron is known as the world’s second best saffron. Spain has wonderful saffron farms in Kashmir, that gets exported out of Kashmir. There is a huge difference in quality of exports and the ones that locals use there. Saffron is known to lighten and add a glow to your skin. However, only pure saffron is effective. Kashmiri women believe saffron when ingested and applied makes their skin fair. They also drink it during pregnancy to get a fair child. There are a lot of places where they would not give you good quality saffron if they know you are tourists, so better go to a local who would help you bargain and buy the best quality.
Almonds: You get really good almonds in Kashmir, ranging from less oily to almonds with natural oils! So, they do not only apply it externally but also use it in their most famous refreshing drink named “kahwah.” You get plenty of almonds and walnuts in Kashmir, they use it in their locally manufactured beauty products also.
Milk Cream (Malai): Kashmiri women believe that milk cream is one of the best anti-ageing ingredients gifted by nature. Since the air is so pure in Kashmir, their milk cream is also of a better quality. They mix milk cream and saffron and keep it overnight and in the morning, they use it as a moisturiser. They say it helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles and prevents their face from looking old.
So these are the three powerful ingredients that the Kashmiri beauties rely on.
Also let’s just face it, the kind of air that they breathe and the food that they eat is sort of a dream for us! That purity and beauty is definitely a far-fetched dream for a city dweller.
