Ayurveda recognizes autumn as a transitional season for the mind, body and spirit — that includes our skin — not only the body’s largest organ, but the face the world sees.
If you’re concerned about products you use for your complexion, you’re likely aware that some conventional skincare brands use harsh chemicals that can be absorbed through our skin. What you may not be aware of is that your teacup may hold gentle beauty ingredients. It’s fun to make your own Ayurvedic skincare in your kitchen using nourishing gifts from nature, not to mention it can save money.
DIY Ayurvedic Skincare
Here are 4 DIY skincare recipes that promote beautiful healthy skin using ORGANIC INDIA Tulsi, an amazing adaptogenic herb that helps support balance, stress relief and the immune system.
Tulsi Sweet Rose Face Spritzer
Two ingredient ayurvedic skincare recipe featuring just Tulsi Sweet Rose tea and water.
Brew the tea in the water for about 10 minutes. The water will become very dark in color. Remove the tea bags and squeeze the excess tea from each bag into the water. Let the mixture cool before pouring into a small spray bottle. Keep in the fridge, and spritz onto your skin for an all-natural pick-me-up!
Tulsi Tea Skin Scrub
If your skin took a beating during the hot summer months, this Tulsi ayurvedic skincare scrub is exactly what you need! Not only does it help remove dead skin cells, it leaves your body feeling silky smooth! Try applying to your body after taking a hot shower or bath.
Mix all ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Add more water if needed to make a paste. Apply the mixture to your face and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Gently massage in a circular motion with your fingers before rinsing it off with water.
Tulsi Hibiscus Tea Face Steam
Feeling stressed? Give this adaptogenic ayurvedic skincare recipe a try! Not only does it relax and soothe your senses, but it will also help promote clear, beautiful skin.
Transfer the hot water to a heat-resistant bowl or container. Begin brewing the Tulsi Hibiscus tea by dropping the tea bags entirely into the water and add the dried mint. Set the bowl on a table where you can easily sit and rest your head above the opening. Cover your head with a towel and breathe in the steam with your eyes closed. Do this for about 10 minutes or until the water is no longer warm.
