Ayurveda and Deep Cleansing
Ayurveda recommends regular, deep detoxification and exfoliation of the skin. There is a kind and gentle way to accomplish this with an age-old Ayurvedic recipe I learned almost 30 years ago in India. According to Ayurveda, every formulation must be intelligent, which means the herbs are combined in such a way that they work synergistically with the body. A skin treatment must restore the radiance of the skin.
A Mud Mask Has to Have a Mission
When I first opened my Ayurvedic center in 1994 in Boulder, I had only one skin care recipe, and it was our mud mask. When given this formula by my teacher during my Ayurvedic studies in India, I was told that this was all you needed for the skin. A family recipe, it was a cleanser, moisturizer and toner all wrapped in one.
First, a good mask should exfoliate, and then penetrate into the deep layers of the skin where it can cleanse, rejuvenate and pull impurities. Then, it must deeply moisturize at a deep layer to restore the luster of the skin. Then, to wrap it up, it must tone and deliver a glow or noticeable radiance. A good mask should also be able to substitute for a cleanser, exfoliator and toner, and even a moisturizer, and leave your skin glowing.
Our Ancient Skin Care Recipe Revealed
The first ingredient in the mud mask is chickpea flour, which acts as an exfoliant and moisturizer with a gentle pulling or toning effect. Then, a combination of herbs are added to the flour:
- Triphala – a formula comprised of 3 unique fruits (Amla, Bibhitaki, Haritaki) to tone and gently cleanse.
- Turmeric – a well-known natural cleanser and toner
- Neem – “the Queen of Skin” to cleanse, moisturize, rejuvenate, tone and restore the skin’s radiance
Honey is then added to the mud mask mix. Honey is a superb moisturizer, which is so needed in truly transformative skin care.
Bentonite clay adds a deep exfoliating effect along with the honey and herbs. This acts as a force to pull impurities from their hiding places in the skin. Because it is paired with honey, the bentonite clay isn’t given the opportunity to dry out the skin.
The result is an intelligent process of cleansing, rejuvenating, moisturizing and exfoliating the skin. Of course, an Ayurvedic mask would not be complete unless it restored radiance – referred to as “ojas” in Ayurveda. Ojas is the glow of healthy skin, that radiance that we so often refer to when we speak of natural beauty.
