3 Sacred Skin Rituals For Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is prone to getting dry, irritated and patchy at the slightest provocation. Looking after it can be quite difficult since the regular beauty products available in the market can do more harm than good, owing to the number of chemicals they have in them. But don’t give up yet. We have come up with some simple yet satisfying Ayurvedic skin care tips for your sensitive skin, so that you can look effortlessly radiant all round the year.


Still wandering the aisles at the beauty store in search of the perfect cleanser for your skin? Skip the hassle and try the multi-purpose Ayurvedic remedy made from herbs, flours and legumes. You can use it as a cleanser, exfoliator, face/body mask, and body polisher. Ubtans are great for sensitive skin because, unlike soaps that alter the pH balance and dries the skin, they nourish the skin from within, leaving it hydrated and squeaky-clean. In case you are too tired (or lazy!) to try another DIY ubtan, allow us to be of service. Try our Kesar Ubtan for a flawless complexion and silky smooth skin.


Abhyanga or self-massage is a ritual of nourishing your body with ayurvedic oils. According to the Vedas, abhyanga purifies the skin, enhances the complexion and nourishes the skin from deep within. It is also amongst the most effective treatments to slow down the skin’s ageing process. So the next time you are looking for a surefire route to a goddess-like glow, try practicing this self-massage ritual with our massage oil.


Tailored to individual skin types, mukhalepam is an Ayurvedic facial therapy in which the facial skin is massaged with sesame or olive oils and coated with herbal pastes. This facial therapy is perfect for those with sensitive skin as the paste is made from a decoction of medicated plants, oils, fruits, herbs, etc. unlike the chemical-infused facials.You can schedule your personalized Mukhalepam at Jiva Panchakarma Clinic by calling 0129-4040404 or you can prepare a very simple lep (paste) at home. Mix besan (gram flour) with a pinch of haldi (turmeric) and add 3-4 teaspoons of milk to it. Apply and keep on your face for 10-15 minutes and the wash off with lukewarm water.

Try these skin care rituals for that au naturel glow, and we promise that you’d never want to wear makeup again.
