Skincare with Ayurveda

Ayurveda offers remedies for skincare. Here are a few

Mix lime, glycerin, and rose water in equal quantities, and apply preferably at night wherever required. It is effective on pimples, blackheads and scars.

Apply a mixture of tomato juice (50 ml) and one teaspoon of lemon juice for smooth and glowing skin, free of pimples.

Blend cucumber juice, rose water and lime juice in equal quantities and apply it overnight.
Rinse it off in the morning for a clear complexion and a healthy skin.
Mix the extracts of coconut, manjishta (the root of Rubia cordifolia), and sandalwood oil to form a good under-eye lightening cream.

Mix one teaspoon of carrot juice, and a little honey. Apply on the face and leave it for 15 minutes, then rinse. This is good for skin lightening.

Mix grapefruit, lemon juice, a hollowed apple, approximately two egg-whites, and seedless grapes in a blender. Apply this mixture on the face and leave for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. This is good for oily skin as it unclogs the pores, acts as an astringent, and tightens the skin.

Whip honey, egg white, and glycerin with flour to produce a thick paste. Apply on the face and rinse after 15 minutes. This helps to smoothen and moisture the skin.
