GENERAL HEALTH CARE
Out of these, cleansing, toning and moisturizing should be followed as a daily routine.
Ayurveda suggests the use of herbal powders called Ubtans to cleanse the skin. A paste of ingredients like turmeric, and licorice can be used for this purpose. Perspiration and accompanying waste products are continually excreted from the pores of the skin,, attracting dirt and bacteria. Initial cleansing removes this dirt, making the skin surface fresh and ready to receive facial massage.
Mild massaging should be done to the face by using oils medicated with herbal ingredients like sandalwood, licorice or vetiver grass. Massaging also tightens the skin and erases fine wrinkles.
The warmth, moisture and fragrance of the infusion used for steam helps dissipate muscular and mental tension, boost circulation and activate the pores and glands. The frequency of this procedure should be moderated by observing condition of skin. For dry skin, steam should be applied once in two weeks. For this purpose, mixture of Dashamoola (the group of ten herbs), rose or sandalwood powder should be mixed with water, and boiled. For normal skin, infusion of Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) and sandalwood should be used, while for oily skin, infusion of lemon grass and rose powder is recommended.
Scrubbing should be done with a very light hand, otherwise it damages the skin, which is especially delicate in the facial area. This stimulates circulation and rejuvenates the skin.
Dirt accumulated in the deeper layers of skin is extracted by using a facial mask. It also prevents the formation of acne and blackheads. Clay is the best base for a mask (Gopichandan or Multani Mitti) and is a rich source of minerals. Aloe Vera, lemon juice or spring/rose water is mixed to prepare the mask. Various face packs, containing the powders of medicinal herbs, and gels of fruits and vegetables are also used to improve circulation, to cleanse and tighten the facial skin. Face packs and masks should be applied and kept till they dry. These should be removed using warm water and a clean cloth or cotton.
These are used to tighten the skin and prevent dirt and dust from settling on its surface. Pastes of Rubia cordifolia (Manjishtha), licorice and embelic myrobalan are the herbs, which tighten the skin by exerting an astringent effect.
All skin types need moisturizing in order to protect from drying and bacterial infection. Aloe Vera with glycerin and ghee can be used as a simple homemade moisturizer. Moisturizers should preferably be applied at night, to make skin smooth and lustrous.
