Ayurveda has many recipes that can help improve the look and feel of your skin. Here are three quick and easy steps to get you glowing.


 

Try this routine, which takes you from exfoliation to a mask to moisturizing for a taste of Ayurvedic beauty.

 

Step 1: Ayurvedic Exfoliating Scrub

 

You can use this exfoliating scrub for the entire body a couple of times a week. You can also use this on your face every day if you like. It removes makeup, dirt, and dead skin, and leaves you absolutely radiant.

 

  • 1/2 cup of unpasteurized honey
  • 1/4 tbsp. organic sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. organic coarse sugar

 

Mix all the ingredients well.  Store in a wide-mouth container in your shower so that you can use it daily.

 

Step 2: Chickpea Face Mask

 

Now it’s time for nourishment. My favorite skin nourisher is chickpea flour. There are many versions of this mask. It can be mixed with gooseberries, yogurt, cinnamon, or turmeric.

 

  • 1 tbsp. chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp. water

 

Add enough water to the flour to create a paste. Apply this paste to your face (or entire body) and allow it to dry. Once the mask is dry, rub it off or dampen the skin with water and massage it in before you wash it off. This mask helps tighten the skin and always makes me feel five years younger. This can be done once a week.

 

Step 3: Soothing Massage Oil Moisturizer 

 

I like simple rose water dabbed on the skin, but we can also use a delicate massage oil.

 

  • 1/2 cup each olive oil and coconut oil
  • 5 drops jasmine oil
  • 4 drops lime oil
  • 4 drops rose oil

 

Mix all the oils. Massage into your face or body after your skincare regime or in the place of lotion. Store the remainder.      – October 5
