Indian beauty rituals

One of the oldest and most sacred Indian traditions is performed the day before a bride's wedding ceremony. Ubtan (a mixture of Indian spices) is mixed with saffron and then rubbed all over the bride's face, hands and feet to rejuvenate and brighten her skin for her wedding day.

You don't have to get messy with spices to get the same effect. Just look for skin care products inspired by India's natural healing ingredients and ancient traditions. KeSARI is a new skin care line that fits the bill.

KeSARI's saffron-loaded Triphala Radiance Firming Serum, which is modernized with a peptide complex and time-released Retinol, can rejuvenate and brighten your skin before your wedding day or anytime. KeSARI Triphala Radiance Firming Serum is available on for $44.50.
