Baheda, also called bibhitaki, scientific name Terminalia bellerica, is a typical plant of Asia whose fruits are used and appreciated in Ayurveda. Baheda is part, together with amla and haritaki, of the Indian remedy Triphala. However, Baheda can also be used alone for the beauty and health of skin and hair, but let's try to understand better.

Baheda, properties

Baheda is a tonic for the hair, in fact it acts by strengthening them if damaged by the heat, giving them shine and strength (Priyanga Jayamal Dharmaratne et al, BMC Complement Altern Med., 2018). Baheda stimulates the regrowth of brittle hair. For what concerns the skin, baheda acts as an antioxidant and antimicrobial, capable of counteracting the damage of free radicals and bacterial proliferation. Not only that, it is an astringent thanks to the presence of tannins, illuminates the complexion and fights wrinkles and photo-aging thanks to ellagic acid and phenols, which are antioxidant substances (Basu et al, Cytotechnology, 2017 - Bae et al, The Faseb Journal , 2009 - Dahl et al, J Drugs Dermatol, 2013). Therefore, baheda proves useful both in case of mature skin and acne-prone skin, oily skin, with blackheads and enlarged pores.
