Winter skin care

In the winter time, cold temperatures and dry heating air do not leave our sensitive facial skin unscathed. It usually reacts with dryness and impurities and significantly loses its radiance compared to summer. Especially in winter, we should take time for our skin on a regular basis. Treat yourself to a recovery phase for your skin with a pampering program at home in an atmospheric setting, with relaxing music, candlelight and tea. By the way; drinking plenty of fluids moisturizes the skin from the inside and helps with regeneration.

Our tip: Pamper your skin with a homemade ayurvedic face mask.


Recipe: Ayurvedic face mask for Vata types
Vata skin tends to be dry and can quickly look a bit sallow.
Therefore, moisturizing is extremely important, especially during the winter months.

1 tsp Manuka honey, 2 tbsp mashed ripe avocado, 1 tsp cottage cheese.


Recipe: Ayurvedic face mask for Pitta types
Sensitive Pitta skin is prone to irritation, which can manifest itself in redness and inflammation.
Soothing the skin is the focus and is supported by Manuka honey and Shatavari.

1 tsp manuka honey, 1 tsp healing clay, 1/2 tsp organic shatavari powder, 1-2 tsp aloe vera gel.


Recipe: Ayurvedic face mask for Kapha types 
The skin of the Kapha type is often oily as well as large-pored and prone to impurity and lymphatic swelling.
The decongestant and pore-refining effect is particularly important.

1 tsp Manuka honey, 1 tsp healing clay, 1/2 tsp organic Manjistha powder, 1-2 tsp rose water.


Mix all ingredients into a smooth paste and dilute with a little rose water if needed, if the mask is too firm. Then apply evenly to the face. Please avoid the eye area when applying. For optimal pampering of the skin, leave the face mask on for about 20 minutes. Finally, wash the entire face with lukewarm water and apply a light facial care product according to the skin type.
