The ancient healing science of Ayurveda prescribes that the level of ‘roopam’ (radiance) one exhibits is a result of the health of the body and the mind. The health of our skin is specifically reflected and nourished by blood tissue (rakta dhatu) which in turn is nourished by plasma (rasa dhatu). Therefore, glowing & healthy skin is the result of good quality plasma and blood tissue supported by robust digestion, effective elimination of waste, and healthy tissue formation along with emotional stability and contentment in the heart, mind and senses.

Neem leaf is renowned for its healing, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and clarifying properties. Kasthuri manjal is great for improving complexion, as well as clarifying, tightening pores and brightening the skin. It differs from other variety of turmeric as it does not stain the skin and is more fragrant. Combining the two as a face mask is a great salve for soothing, cooling, clarifying the skin and combating acne and pimples.
This mask can easily be made at home or book in for an ayurvedic facial to have this mask specially prepared and used during the treatment.
