How soon can I expect results? - A recurring question every time you start a new skincare routine

“Change takes time and we should all trust the process.” 

Ever since I started Raw Beauty, I have always had people asking me when the results will start showing. We are all restless and have over time been made to believe that miracles happen overnight with skincare products working their magic in a jiffy. However, I believe that no skincare brand should make such claims and instead educate their customers about the process of slow beauty and the true essence of following a natural skin care product regime. 

A few things I live by to keep myself grounded and in touch with reality: 
  1. Every skin is different - It is vital to understand one’s own body, its doshas and the skin type. It is only after this thorough understanding of the body that you can get to the root cause of the skin condition. If your skin has been feeling dry, flaky or unhealthy because of a deep-rooted issue, it is essential to give it ample time to heal. Healing is an art: it takes time, patience and a lot of love. 
  2. How old is the issue - I have often come across people complaining about their pigmented lips. They have either been  smokers for years or have been using lipsticks 24/7. I always tell them that if it is years of abuse to the body and skin, then it is unfair to to expect instant or quick changes. Every conscious brand aims to deliver safe and effective products but prolonged conditions may take a fair amount of time to show results. 
  3. Lifestyle of the person - Modern lifestyle practices and a fast-paced life has made the inclusion of organic skincare products in our daily routine all the more important. The beauty of natural skincare products is that they are customized for different body types, lifestyle choices and furthermore various skin and hair types. Each person’s skin and hair behave differently towards the same product, owing to the different lifestyles that they follow. Every person’s body is different and there is no single formula for happiness. 
  4. Any medical condition - Natural skincare products have organic ingredients that need a playground of their own. Owing to a person’s medical condition, the time and effect of a particular product always vary.
  5. Consistency is key - Regimes are built over a period of time, with lots of care and patience. We cannot expect to scrub our face once a month and still be free of dead skin cells. Natural skincare is slow, conscious but deep-rooted. You build it day by day by layering the goodness of natural ingredients and soon you’ll see the positive result of clean beauty. 
Every conscious brand intends to deliver value and keep its customers happy. Give yourself the time to go through the philosophy of the brand you are purchasing from and understand from where they are sourcing their ingredients. Being mindful is the first step towards conscious beauty. Miracles do not happen overnight. 

Love, Sunayana
