The people over at Forest Essentials recommend a facial once a week and while it certainly has the CTM, it should definitely include other steps, including…
Exfoliation. For this, the people at Forest Essentials suggest using their organic fruit scrub which contains fermented fruits like date and apricot and finely milled almond, so it gently exfoliates the dead skin, removes tan and leaves skin polished.
For an added glow, though they recommend that the ladies with acne-prone skin not use this, they suggest Tejasvi Emulsion.This massage balm is specially made with aged cow’s ghee and Ayurvedic herbs to deeply nourish and brighten the skin while reducing pigmentation and boosting collagen, to restore skin’s natural glow.
The people over at Ananda In The Himalayas also told us how to do your DIY facial at home and aloe vera and rose figured strongly in their routine. For a scrub, they suggested going with natural sandalwood dust or almond meal, mixed with a pinch of the Ananda Aloe Vera gel that has rose distillate in it. Make it into a smooth paste and apply on the neck & face in circular movements, going both clockwise and anti-clockwise.
With the mercury soaring, they also recommended going for clay mask and we particularly like the mineral-rich kerala clay and antiseptic sandalwood that helps balance and restore, while the soothing rose in the formulation softens and calms the skin.
