Skin Care

Skin Care : Cleansing
Clean your skin every evening. The skin pores get blocked dut to exposure to air pollutions, wind, sun, air conditioning, dirt and grime from our fingers. After cleansing, using a natural skin toner like rose water.

It is really important to remove stale make-up, perspiration, dirt, dust, excess oil etc. Use a good, natural cleanser that removes only the impurities without stripping the skin of nutrients and moisture.

Wipe your face with a piece of cotton wool dipped in milk (unboiled or not heated). Almond oil is a good cleanser for skin under the eyes.
Remember that over cleansing can harm the skin.

Skin Care : Exfoliating
It is important to help the skin renewal process by removing dead skin cells. Exfoliate at least twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells. Care should be taken if you have broken capillaries/surface veins.

Clay Masks
Clay helps to deep cleanse and draw out impurities and to soften and condition the skin.

Skin Care : Moisturising
Moisturing helps to protect your skin from daily pollutants. Moisturising morning and evening with a natural moisturiser will hydrate, moisturise and protect your skin.

For a moisturizing and nourishing mask, blend a mashed banana with white cosmetic clay and apply.

For normal skin care, mix 1 cup yogurt, 1 tablespoon orange juice and 1 tablespoon lemon juice and apply it on your face. Clean it off after 20 minutes.

For dry skin care, use a mixture of cooked oatmeal and honey; it is a very good moisturizer and cleansing agent.

Body Care

Hands Care: Mash a banana with some butter and rub on your hands. Before Shower:Body brushing helps exfoliate, tone and stimulate the skin as well as helping the natural drainage of our lymph glands. Dry body brushing before a shower with a natural bristle brush. Always brush upwards to the heart in quick, rhythmic strokes and brush down to the heart when you reach the shoulder/neck area.

For Lips Care: In the evening, before going to bed, after washing your face and lips, rub your lips with a soft towel to remove the dead cells. Then apply a few drops of pure almond oil on them and leave it overnight. The lips will become soft and become light in color if dark over a period of time.

After Shower: Apply body lotion. Water is a natural hydration for the skin.

  1. This is a really great article. I was wondering about somethig though.
    Something that has always confused me about masks. Is there a special way to remove them? I mean, I know it shouldn’t be difficult, but it seems like whenever I take it off, my face doesn’t feel different. If anything it just feels better to have honey and mashed fruit off my face.
    Rinse in the shower? Wet towel? Use a scraper? I’m lost.

    • Hello Aurelia.M.Mahoney, There are some masks that should be removed by luke warm water and for some you should wash your face with cold water. Its not necessary but mostly it is recommended that you wash your face with cold water and for this problem that you are facing, try applying a few drops of rose water on your skin twice a day. It would keep your skin fresh and glowing and you would definitely feel the difference 🙂
      Keep reading our posts and keep commenting. We always need your feedback. take care!

    • dear Aurelia..it is possible that the mask that you are using may not be suitable for your skin type.As you may know the effects of any skin product are maximized if they are used on skin-types that they were originally made for.
      Firstly, you should check what type of skin type you have and then you should try masks for that particular skin type.
      I hope this will help answer your query.thanks for your feedback!!!
