Ayurveda is a traditional medicine system that has been practiced since centuries in India. It has been gaining importance because of the natural and highly potent ingredients that this medicine form uses to treat various illnesses without causing any side effects. The beauty of Ayurveda is such that ayurvedic treatments and medicines can be customized individually according to the person’s body system. Similarly, ayurvedic beauty treatments have no match. Ayurveda has effective treatments for all skin problems, just that you need to follow all the instructions prescribed properly. I have tried to prepare a list of ayurvedic face packs from ingredients that are used extensively in ayurvedic medicine. Let’s have a look at some of them:
1. Green Gram, Turmeric, and Rice Powder Face Pack:
This face pack exfoliates dead skin cells and brightens up skin texture. Green gram is rich in Vitamin A, C, etc. It also polishes skin. The turmeric lightens skin tone and clears tan. Take 2 tbsp of green gram powder (dry it under the sun first), 1/2 tbsp of turmeric, and 1 tbsp of rice powder. Make a paste out of it by adding either honey, curd, or milk, whichever ingredient suits you better. Apply and keep it on the face for 20 minutes before rinsing off to reveal smooth and soft skin.
