All skin in its optimal condition is rosy, shiny, flawless, smooth, evenly colored, soft, firm and supple. Dull, reddish, pale, blotchy, dry, discolored, sagging, swollen and wrinkled skin are signs of imbalance and premature aging due to stress, bad habits, exposure to the environment and, of course, improper skin care. All these symptoms result from the decline of skin functions - new cell growth, elastin and collagen production, blood circulation, secretion, immune activity and enzyme activity, the proper functioning of which gives the skin its color and shine. . Therefore, in order to keep the skin young and radiant, our beauty products and treatments include the removal of dead skin cells and epidermal stimulation for new cell growth, antioxidant properties to rejuvenate and repair cells, improved blood flow in the capillaries, immune stimulation, deep hydration and nutrients they must ensure that all seven layers of skin tissue are replenished. However, they cannot harm our health in any other way, as anything that puts the body or mind out of balance can at some point cause premature aging or other damage to the skin. The three-step process of cleaning, nourishing and hydrating the skin - using only herbs and oils suitable for our skin type - fulfills these basic requirements.
The secret to proper skin cleansing is to get rid of dead skin cells and toxins that the skin cannot naturally remove, such as makeup, dirt, chemicals, clogged pores, and bacteria that cause infections. We have to remove them without keeping the skin's natural oils and hydration.
Most cleansers, including soaps, shampoos, and scrubs, dry out the skin and change its pH balance, making it more alkaline. Advertisements have led us to believe that the best cleansers are those that lather the most and leave a squeaky clean feeling. After all, this sounds good, especially for those with oily skin. However, the body is actually always trying to normalize its processes - i.e. balance and heal - so when we remove the skin's natural oil content, it responds by producing even more oil to compensate for the loss. If we dry out the skin too much, it produces an excessive amount of oil, which only worsens the condition of existing acne. Of course, if our skin is dry, we don't want to make it even drier, and if our skin is sensitive, we don't want to further irritate it with strong chemicals and soaps.
Ayurveda uses herbal powders for daily facial cleansing and exfoliation. The herbs act as gentle scrubbers to clean away dirt, toxins and dead cells, but do not strip the skin of the moisture it needs. At the same time, they are balancing, nourishing, healing and completely free of toxic ingredients.
After using harsh cleansers, we usually use a soothing face cream, which replaces the natural fluids that have been thoroughly washed off.
Unfortunately, these products rarely do the job as well as nature itself. The first obstacle to their success is often the skin itself. Many products are simply too dense at the molecular level to be properly absorbed into the tissues, so they don't really reach the cellular level where they can use their nutrients. What happens instead is that the unabsorbed active ingredients form a layer on the surface of the skin - hair conditioners cause the same problem when trying to undo the harmful effects of shampoos. This layer clogs pores, collects dirt and generally perpetuates the problem of dry skin. If the product does penetrate the skin, in many cases its nourishing and moisturizing benefits are outweighed by the toxic effect of its chemical content.
The skin also eats, so we want to feed it with what is clean, natural and balances the body and mind. In Ayurveda, we feed the skin only with pure essential oils and vegetable oils, which are naturally hydrating, rich in nutrients, and gentle enough to penetrate the skin completely, thus rejuvenating the cells. Essential oils are gently massaged into the skin to improve circulation and strengthen connective tissue, thereby reducing wrinkles. Their aroma also helps balance the doshas, and the essence itself provides protection against infections. For those with overactive sebaceous glands, using oils to treat oily skin may seem counterintuitive. Still, I recommend that you try it, give it a chance if nothing else has helped!
Essential oils penetrate all seven layers of the skin in a few minutes to provide nutrients and restore the body's subtle intelligence. They are absorbed directly into the cells where they are needed and do not leave a greasy feeling on the surface of the skin.
After the delicately scented nourishing essential oils, we use a thin layer of moisturizing oils that also match the type. All of this is done twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, for the health of wonderfully glowing facial skin.
Following this method, you no longer need tonics, eye wrinkle creams or other face care products, the treatment is thus complete in its simplicity!
I look forward to welcome you to a full Ayurvedic facial treatment, during which we clean, nourish and hydrate the skin with handmade products - all this is followed by a facial massage and then a facelifting treatment with the stimulation of marma points.
