Go Natural with Ayurveda
Instantaneous results are the expectation today but many of us do not realize the ill effects of the chemicals added into our daily use creams and lotions since this can be felt only on prolonged use. In many cases such effects are irreversible. Go Natural is what the world is chanting today and here we are sharing few of the age-old secrets got through word of mouth through octogenarian and grand mothers proudly flaunting their clear skin with just those age related signs. Youthful skin can be owned by young and old alike with just few home-made ingredients.
We see a lot of our teens today suffering from pimples, acne and even bursts of blackheads. A simple remedy for them is presented here. We belong to a generation when VICCO Turmeric Cream, Boroline and Cuticura ruled our daily skin treatment. Today at 40+, our generation still flaunts baby skin and a face that every teen of this day is jealous of. Fortunately, this is not magic. Just a bit of patience and regular use can do wonders to any skin with problems or sheer maintenance. Here is my all natural home-made powder to make a mask for a flawless skin.
Besan ( Chana Dal Flour) – 5 Table Spoons
Turmeric powder (Kasturi) – 3 Table spoons
Honey – 1/2 tbsp
Milk – 1 tbsp
Sandal powder (pure) – 1 tbsp
Rose water – 1 tbsp
Lime juice – 1/2 tbsp
Mix these ingredients well and apply on the face and neck using the lemon rind you get after extracting the lime juice. Have a rose-water mixed with water and use it to keep the face wet for minimum of 30 minutes and allow it to dry. Wash the face with lukewarm water and dab the face clean. Do not scrub or force the dried materials off the face.
*For those with Oily Skin, replace Besan with Green Gram Flour and Milk with Curd.
Once the face is dried, use Vicco Turmeric Cream to moisturize the face and the neck. Do not miss the ears and areas behind the ears while applying the face mask and the moisturizer. We suggest VICCO Turmeric Cream because we have been using since ages and our face is the testimony of the natural products it contains. Our relationship with Vicco Turmeric Cream extends beyond 25 years now.
Turmeric, our own miracle herbal product is the magic behind every beautiful face we see in our grand mothers. It is used in our home in cooking as a spice and it is the best known product with anti inflammatory properties and also doubles up as an anti-oxidant. For those interested in weight loss, take it with pepper and see how it dissolves fat. It grows in India in abundance and now the West is waking up to it and you can see many products with Turmeric sold as capsules. Let us understand and respect our rich heritage left behind by our elders with incomparable ancient wisdom.
