Festivals are about celebrations, rituals, dressing up, and delicious food. Meeting loved ones, friends, and family amidst the glimmer, shine and joy is special. So, prepping is essential to avoid last-minute jitters, be it shopping, cleaning the house, sweets or decorations. While taking utmost care of how we want to present our homes, we shouldn’t skip the most vital aspect in festive preparation, “Selfcare”! So here are some easy DIYs & Ayurvedic skincare tips for achieving skin that radiates from within.
Facial for glowing skin
A soothing facial is the best therapy when your skin losses its natural moisture and suppleness. Therefore, ensure to inculcate an extensive routine at least once a week. Begin by cleansing your Face with T.A.C kumkumadi Face Wash, followed by Kumkumadi Face Scrub. Gently scrub your face as it helps to exfoliate and remove the dead cells, blackheads and dirt impurities from pores.
Choose a gentle, self-care facial massage with T.A.C 100% Pure Kumkumadi Face Oil. Enriched with the goodness of authentic Ayurvedic herbs like Saffron, Mulethi, Manjistha and Sandalwood, the face oil gives your skin a boost of radiance and the correct dose of nourishment. You can also utilise a self-care massage tool like a Kwansha, Rose Quartz, or Kansa wand to get a relaxing massage that helps stimulate Marma points.
DIY ubtan for face
Mix 5 tbsp Ground Masoor Dal, 3 tbsp Orange Peel Powder, 3 tbsp Sandalwood Powder, 1 tbsp Turmeric Powder, 2 tbsp Licorice Powder and 3 tbsp Rose Petals Powder and store it in an air-tight container. Take ½ tbsp of the mixture and add milk to dry skin, Rose Water for combination and normal skin type or sour curd for oily skin type. Add a few drops of Kumkumadi Face Oil to your ubtan for extra glow. Use this face pack twice a week to get maximum benefits.
Instant glow face pack
Make a face pack for glowing skin at home with ingredients from the kitchen like 1 tbsp Besan/Powdered Rice flour, ½ tsp Cinnamon, ¼ tsp Turmeric, a few drops of lemon juice and 1 tsp of raw milk or cream if you have dehydrated skin. Apply on the face and neck, leave it on until semi-dry and rinse it off. To get a quick glow in just 10 minutes, wear a Kumkumadi Serum Sheet Mask and make your skin hydrated, radiant and youthful-looking.
Ayurvedic body scrub
Use poppy seeds in your beauty routine to create a nourishing body scrub. Add milk to 1-2 tbsp of poppy seeds roasted in a skillet. Remove it from the fire and stir in 1 tablespoon ubtan until it resembles a coarse paste. For extra moisturisation, add a little raw honey, apply on the body and take a warm bath. Try the T.A.C. Nalpamaradi Body Scrub, which combines the benefits of four ficus trees with additional Ayurvedic oils and extracts.
Massage with a body oil
Use a nourishing body oil enriched with Ayurvedic herbs on damp skin after a shower to seal moisture and nourish the skin to advance your body care objectives. Combine 3 tablespoons of almond or sesame oil with 2 drops each of rose and sandalwood essential oils. Additionally, you can do a calming regimen by warming this oil and massaging the skin with it.
