It forms a protective covering on the wound and promotes the collection of blood platelets and leucocytes at the affected place, thereby blocking the intrusion of microbes.

It is Cytophylactic – The essential oil of mandarin also promotes the growth of new cells and tissues, thereby helping to speed the healing time of wounds and other signs of wear & tear.

♥ Cypress The antiseptic quality of the oil is very good for helping oily, spot-prone and acne skins. Its scent is refreshing and stimulates the mind. It is recommended for nervous and intellectual fatigue.

♥ Cinnamon powder Cinnamon helps get rid of acne and pimples on the face and body. This is done by bringing blood and oxygen to the outer skin surface. Cinnamon helps remove dead skin cells and helps restore shine and suppleness to the skin. Thanks to the anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, cinnamon helps enhance the complexion.Cinnamon improves blood flow and brings the oxygen and blood to the outer surface of the skin, and this causes minor plumping and a fuller complexion.

♥ Turmeric Curcumin – one of the most important active compounds found in turmeric – is an anti-inflammatory, clear skin face scrubantioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral powerhouse. a 2012 study found that after four weeks of treatment there was a “significant decrease” in skin oils when turmeric was applied twice daily. Over a period of three months, turmeric cream reduced facial oils by nearly 25%! The researchers noted this beneficial effect was likely because turmeric contains fatty acids and phytosterols, which have been observed in other studies to reduce excess skin oils. Because of its dynamic anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, several studies have suggested curcumin can help counteract the effects of aging and age-related disease.

Two studies published in the March 2010 edition of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found that use of moisturizing creams containing turmeric twice daily for eight weeks had the effect of drastically minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; dark spots and changes in skin pigment were also reduced by nearly 15%.

Massage with oils – the importance of external oleation.

The word for oil in Sanskrit, sneha, is also the word for love. So massage ritual is essentially spreading love and nourishment to all of the tissues in the body, as well as to the mind and senses.

“The body of one who uses oil massage regularly does not become affected much even if subjected to accidental injuries, or strenuous work. By using oil massage daily, a person is endowed with pleasant touch, trimmed body parts and becomes strong, charming and least affected by old age”

Charaka Samhita Vol. 1, V: 88-89
(One of the Great ancient texts of Ayurveda)

External oleation of the skin is becoming more important as our population ages.

The main reason to massage the body with the oil is to remove toxins from the deep tissues. It also works to purify, nourish, and tone the body on a deep cellular level.

How should we use this information to achieve our aims?

  1. Reduce the frequency of bathing, showering, and cleansing. The water should be kept at the coolest temperature practical, and one should get out as soon as possible. Sponge bathing should be encouraged.
  2. Apply an oil directly on skin that is still damp. 
  3. Self massage 30-60minutes before bath or shower.
  4. Keep room temperature low. Humidity should be kept as high as possible without causing damage.
  5. Limit the exposure to soaps, detergents, solvents, and water. Such products dry the skin and alter its pH balance. Overdrying should be avoided. In addition, friction from washcloths, rough clothing, and abrasives should be avoided.
  6. Use natural, pure, cold pressed, unrefined oils frequently. Use best quality oils that you can find.  Your skin is your biggest organ, and everything you put on it absorbs directly into your bloodstream.
    Dry skin – use carrier oils as often as possible 4-5 times a day.
    Oily skin – once a day.
  7. Use oils according to your skin type and needs. 
    Dry/Mature Skin Avocado, Jojoba, Kukui Nut, Olive, Rosehip Seed, Sweet Almond, Evening Primrose, Calendula, Camellia Seed, Olive, Sesame, Macademia, Argan, Tamanu

     

    Normal Skin Apricot Kernel, Peach Kernel, Jojoba, Sunflower, Sweet Almond, Sesame, Hazelnut, Pomegranate

     

    Oily/Acne Prone Skin Jojoba, Neem, Apricot Kernel, Coconut, Tamanu, Sesame, Hemp Seed, Black Cumin Seed, Rosehip Seed, Pumpkin Seed

     

  8. Avoid synthetic products. Synthetic moisturizing creams can be too dense on the molecular level to permeate the tissue adequately.

Benefits of applying oil to the body:

  • Improves softness, strength and color to the bodymassage with oil - external oleation
  • Helps in removal of waste products/toxins
  • Decreases the effects of aging

When I was in India, studying Ayurveda, I also learnt how important it is to massage a baby from its early days.

What is baby massage?

Baby massage is gentle, rhythmic stroking of your baby’s body with your hands. Use pure, unrefines, cold-pressed oils only on your baby’s skin. As part of your massage routine, you can gently manipulate your baby’s ankles, wrists and fingers. You can talk softly, hum or sing to your baby while you are massaging.

Benefits of baby massage:

Massage may help your baby to:

  • develop mentally, socially and physically
  • stay relaxed
  • cry less
  • sleep better
  • improve weight gain
  • aid digestion
  • improve circulation
  • ease teething pain

Turmeric Mask: Ayurveda’s Skin Exfoliant

Turmeric Mask: Ayurveda’s Skin Exfoliant

Turmeric is an age old remedy for a wide range of skin problems. Ayurveda recommends turmeric to be used regularly for glowing, blemish free complexion. Turmeric does wonders to the skin as an exfoliant. Apart from removing dead skin and impurities, the turmeric mask also maintains the natural pH balance of the skin and imparts a healthy glow to it.
Any pack we put on the skin gets absorbed into the blood stream. So what better option than the `yellow gold’, as Indians refer to turmeric to enhance beauty?

Make Your Own Turmeric Skin Exfoliantturmeric mask

Here is a simple turmeric mask recipe for different skin types. Follow the below instructions.

  • Turmeric 1 tbsp.
  • 2 tbsp. flour: for vata dosha (dry skin type) use oatmeal, for pitta dosha (sensitive skin type) use chickpea and kapha dosha (oily skin type) use barley flour.
  • Make it into a paste by adding a little water and massage into face and neck.  Leave it on for 5 min. Then wash it off with warm water.

Turmeric can leave heavier stains on your skin if you mix it with plain water. Instead, you can try raw honey or milk to cancel out the staining.

How to remove turmeric stains from your skin

Anyway, do not fear of looking like a character out of The Simpsons. Scientists have discovered that curcumin is 2000 times more soluble in vegetable oil than it is in water. So, gently warm a bit of olive or sesame oil and massage it into your face for about a minute, then wipe away with a cotton pad.

TIP! It is important to note that Curcuma aromatica, and not Curcuma longa, must be used in skin care. Curcuma aromatica, also called “Wild Turmeric” has been used as an herbal cosmetic in South Asia and India for centuries. This traditional herb is used as a skin rejuvenative and to enhance skin health. It is less pungent in property than Curcuma Longa (used in cooking) which makes it ideal to use on sensitive skin. Use Curcuma Aromatica to address a variety of skin conditions: acne, scars, pigmentation, cellulite, inflammatory conditions of the skin and stretch marks among many other conditions. However, it is not edible and should only be used externally.

Curcuma aromatica is a medicinal plant with a wide range of biological activities which can be used for the preparation of various formulations for the treatment of inflammation, wound and microbial infections.

Turmeric as scalp saviour

Add 1 tablespoon of turmeric to a cup of jojoba, olive or coconut oil. Massage this mixture into your scalp and leave on for 15 minutes, then shampoo as usual. This is a great deterrent for dandruff and improves the scalp’s overall condition.

Turmeric as a skin brightener

Mix 2 tablespoons of sandalwood powder, a pinch of turmeric powder and a few drops of lemon juice. Add enough milk or water to make a paste. Apply this mask on your face and neck; wash off with warm water once dry.
