TACKLING BREAKOUTS AND CONGESTED SKIN
This category of skin concern causes so much anxiety and confusion about the ways to treat it. A simple Purearth routine of masques, exfoliating and oiling treatments that we prescribe has helped many a client, showing visible improvement. My rituals can relieve and help clear conditions varying from mild, occasional breakouts, moderate inflammatory eruptions to severe nodules & cysts. Your general Ayurvedic skin condition could be classified as a Pitta (heaty) dosha imbalance, which vitiates the rakta and medha dhatus (blood and fat tissues) producing toxins that block the energy pathways of the face, leading to disturbed sebaceous glands and pimple formation.
A step by step guide
Always remember to fully damp your skin with the preservative, additive free pure Wild Rose Himalayan Mist before cleansing to hydrate and balance oil production without compromising the skin’s acid mantle.
Follow with pat-pressing 1-2 pumps of Qing Cleansing Oil all over the face and neck for a first cleanse and to calm inflammation and redness. Gently wipe away with damp warm wrung organic Kapas Exfoliating Muslin Face Cloth to allow the oil and warmth to penetrate and deep cleanse pores.
Your skin can do with a second cleanse. I recommend that you exfoliate nightly with the Turmeric Sand Exfoliant Face Masque. Carefully selected botanicals like Vedic, biodynamic, certified organic turmeric and neem act on bacterial inflammation, eruptions, acne and congestion. Take a teaspoon and mix with the Wild Rose Himalayan Mist to form a loose paste in the palm of your hand. On fully wet skin, gently work it all over the face to safely polish away grit and debris on the skin’s surface.
Super effective and beneficial for acneic, congested and inflamed skin, the Wild Seaberry Supercritical Oil is a powerhouse. Scientifically proven as a remedy to heal and clear acne and relieve inflammation, this oil will balance excess sebum production with its rare omega 7 profile and high vit C and E content. Gently pat a few drops into skin on face and neck. Pair up with the Kwansha Facial Beauty Coin. The ‘kansa’ alloy of the coin helps calm pitta heat within the system. Place its flat side on unbroken skin and glide it over face and neck to draw out pitta heat, acidity, blockages, impurities and toxins from the skin as well as the system.
Hormonal changes or a compromised sebum due to poor skincare or lifestyle choices are a bane. The Mitti Raw Honey Face Masque is your skin saviour! Ayurvedic herbs mulethi and manjishtha with select clays balance oil production, clear congestion, draw out toxins and lighten post inflammatory erythema (PIE) and hyperpigmentation (PIH). Masque with Mitti three to four times a week as a treatment. Avoid using your hands they can cause contamination. Use our hypoallergenic vegan Kunchi Face Brush to evenly layer the masques on face and neck.
I like to simplify my day and night ritual with just a drop or two of our pure and potent Wild Seaberry Supercritical Oil, this is especially compatible and effective for this skin concern category, Pat it on skin damped with the Wild Rose Himalayan Mist. This ritual has proven results in healing and clearing acneic skin with time, consistency and patience! A pump of the calming Camomila Eye Serum around the eye area helps depuff, refine skin texture and hydrate skin. For a detox cleanse from the inside out – our Wild Nettle Whole Leaf Tisane Infusion is a vital teatox and a very effective one that is well loved by many!
