We hung out with Rooshy Roy and the aavrani team at the most recent SEEMA Virtual Happy Hour. Roy shared her entrepreneurial journey, her favorite go-to ingredients for skincare, and a special aavrani offer just for the SEEMA community, as well as taught us how to make our new go-to drink. We call it the ‘glow-tion.’
Got Tequila, Turmeric, Lemon? That’s what need to make this skin-glowing mellow yellow tonic while quarantining. Add three more ingredients from your pantry, and you’ve got the perfect “glow-tion” potion. Here’s what you will need:
- 1 oz tequila or vodka
- 1 two-inch pieces of fresh ginger, peeled
- 1 two-inch pieces of turmeric, peeled or 1 Tbsp Turmeric Powder
- 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp agave syrup or honey
- sparkling water
- cayenne pepper
- Place ginger, turmeric and lemons into a juicer and allow to strain into a glass jar.
- Stir in agave / honey
- Add 1 – 2 oz of turmeric ginger juice into a glass filled with ice.
- Add in 1 oz of tequila or vodka
- Add in sparkling water and cayenne on top for a kick
“Throughout my formative years, my Indian culture had a huge impact on my approach to health and beauty — from my grandmothers and mother applying raw coconut oil in my hair as a deep conditioning treatment, to making turmeric masks before special occasions to cleanse and nourish my skin”, shared Rooshy, along with some lessons along her entrepreneurial journey.
Harnessing the power of India’s ancient beauty rituals, aavrani has reimagined skincare by curating best-in-class ingredients, formulating all-natural, highly effective solutions, and returning to a deeper, more authentic meaning of beauty
Theaavrani collection is handcrafted in the United States from high-quality ingredients that are sourced from around the world. Organic manuka honey comes from New Zealand, for instance, because it’s the best variety for preserving hydration of the skin, Rooshy noted. And neem comes from India. Extracted from the neem tree, this natural herb acts like a strong anti-inflammatory agent and is amazing for blemishes, redness and calming the skin
Rooshy also shared a special code just for the SEEMA community: Try out their 4-step ritual sampler by checking out the Discovery Ritual Set. We’re offering $20 OFF with code “SEEMAHH20”
