All types of skin benefit from periodic deep-down exfoliating and nourishing mask treatment; if you have really oily skin, you may want to exfoliate at least once a week. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, embedded dirt and toxins, and stimulates the skin, making it receptive to the nutrient-rich facial mask that should follow. At its most basic, a facial mask is a little oatmeal or chickpea flour mixed with water and a touch of honey. You can add almond meal and a couple of drops of wheat germ oil for dry skin, almond meal and pure aloe vera juice for sensitive skin and Bentonite clay for oily skin. You can also enrich the mask with pure essential oils suitable for your skin type.

Ayurvedic Skin Masks

Base Ayurvedic Mask Paste

  • 2 tablespoons Chickpea flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Triphala powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Dried Neem or Mint leaves (if using fresh leaves – use 1/2 tablespoon of mashed leaves and mix into your paste)

Mix the above ingredients into a paste and apply to the skin 1-2 times per week for 5-10 minutes, and rinse.

Ayurvedic Vata Mask

Mash 1-2 tablespoons of ripe avocado and mix into your base mask paste.

Ayurvedic Pitta Mask

Mash 1-2 tablespoons of cucumber and mix into your base mask paste.

Ayurvedic Kapha Mask

Mash 1-2 tablespoons of ripe papaya and mix into your base mask paste. Use 1 tablespoon for regular skin and 2 tablespoons for sensitive skin.

Ayurvedic Face Mask For Normal Skin

Normal skin is neither too dry nor too oily so it looks vibrant and moist. Skin care can be cleansing, toning and moisturizing. However, herbs like lemon and tulsi rejuvenates the skin protects it from tanning and allergies. Peach and oatmeal can make a nice herbal face mask. Cook peach till it is soft and mash it with a fork to make a smooth paste. Add honey and oatmeal and make a thick paste. Apply it on the face and neck and keep it for 15 minutes. Rinse it with cold water and experience a clear skin.

Ayurvedic Face Mask For Oily Skin

Oily skin is prone to pimple, tanning and acne due to excessive secretion of sebum by the oil glands. Mix fuller’s earth and sandalwood powder or paste with rose water and add some tulsi leaves and apply it on the face. This homemade natural face mask normalizes oil secretion, removes dead skin, cleanses clogged pore and tightens the skin.

Ayurvedic Face Mask For Dry Skin

Dry skin is due to very less or no secretion of sebum which makes it prone to getting dehydrated and get wrinkles at an early age. Take orange extracts like juice or juicy skin and mix it with papaya juice and yogurt to make a thick paste. Add few drops of akhrot oil and olive oil. Even few drops of glycerin is good to moisturize the dry skin. Apply this natural face mask on dry skin and increase skin glow whilst preventing the formation of wrinkles.

Ayurvedic Face Mask To Cure Acne and Pimple

Boil neem and tulsi leaves in water and make a paste of it. Add turmeric, sandalwood powder and rose water and apply this face pack. Keep it for 15 minutes and wash it with cold water.

Ayurvedic Face Mask To Get Glowing Skin

Nicole Wilmot Yes, by individuals online and no its no rocket science to do if you are honest while answering your questions. But if you access to a Ayurveda practitioner, he or she would work on your life history to know the underlying causes. If people in white are all professional, i'm sure no would fall sick in this world and we would have answers to all problems. But we don't, because professional would go to a medical school to learn off the books to tell you what's good for you! Would you believe if I tell you that some people in this world live happily for years without ever visiting a doc?

It is very important to get a professional skin analysis to know your true skin type and condition. If your using the wrong products they could be drying your skin. The skin in this case will over compensate and create an excess amount of oil, and break outs. Then the person will think they have oily skin when in fact they don't. It's the condition of their skin from the improper products. But not their actual skin type.
