Effective Skin Care Layering and the Beauty of Gotu Kola

It helps to understand skin care layering when you want your skin to look its best- it’s important to use compatible products at the right times for effective results. Today we offer you some tips to make the most of your skin care regimen, and also shine the spotlight on a prominent Ayurverdic herb, gotu kola, and how it can help you achieve clean and glowing skin.


Cleansing is always the first and most important step in a skincare regimen. An effective cleanser will remove make-up, excess oil, and pollution without drying out the skin. It’s important to use a cleanser with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agents like gotu kola for cleanliness, health, and a clear complexion.

Vimala Gentle Cleanser is suitable as a daily general cleanser. Mild exfoliating properties team with antioxidant gotu kola to thoroughly cleanse the skin. Gotu kola is considered in Ayurveda to be a shothahara herb, which means it relieves and protects the skin against inflammation.


A toner is not necessary to all skin care regimens, but can be useful to particularly oily skin types. An effective toner further clears and soothes the skin in preparation for the application of a serum or moisturiser.

Zaakti Purifying Tonic with plant extracts and natural oils helps to naturally brighten the skin and mildly exfoliate.


An effective serum is a pure product with potent active ingredients and safe preservatives. While it is light and easily absorbed, it’s best to leave it on for at least two minutes, or up to ten minutes prior to applying any further products.

Kaanti Lightening Serum promotes radiant skin by reducing the appearance of skin discoloration such as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and sun spots. Its unique formula is complemented by gotu kola, particularly in its capacity as a vranaropana herb. This means it possesses deep healing properties.


Once the serum has been completely absorbed, it’s time to replenish the skin with a burst of hydration. Lightly pat onto the skin and allow to partially absorb before applying any make-up. A great moisturiser will not only appear to moisturise the skin’s surface, but target hydration at a cellular level.

Shaanta Intensive Moisture is a luxurious blend of antioxidants. Active ingredient gotu kola offers benefits to micro-circulation as well as its properties as a tvachya herb. Tvachya means enhancing and nurturing.

Night products

Night is the ideal time to apply products for deep rejuvenation. Refresh from the stresses of the day and prepare for replenished skin tomorrow.

Codayati Renewal System should be applied to cleansed skin. As well as being designed to enhance the benefits of the kaanti Lightening Serum, codayati replenishes at a cellular level. Gotu kola functions as a vayasthapana herb to arrest ageing and promote radiance.

Recommended quick and clean day routine:

  • Vimala Gentle Cleanser – rinsing well
  • Kaanti Lightening Serum – leaving to absorb for 2-10 minutes
  • Shaanta Intensive Moisture – leaving to partially absorb before application of make-up

Recommended nightly replenishment:

  • Vimala Gentle Cleanser – rinsing well
  • Codayati Renewal System – leaving overnight for thorough absorption
