In this month of love, let’s think about self-love; let’s make caring for Ourselves, a new year resolution we all deserve. We spoke to Dr. Tharka Kankanam Gamage regarding simple treatments we could do at home, to care for your skin and overall beauty.
Kokum pothu is a rewarding Ayurvedic ingredient. You can make a beauty paste which can enhance the natural complexion and glow of your skin with this ingredient. Get kokum pothu and crush or blend together with milk. You can also add a little sandalwood powder and turmeric powder to this mixture. Apply this paste on skin and wait for about one hour before washing off.
You need sandalwood powder for this treatment. Once you get the sandalwood powder, make a paste by adding water or milk. Don’t make this too watery, make a paste which you can apply on the face and keep for a while. If you want, you can also add a little turmeric powder. Once the paste is done, go to a mirror and apply the paste flawlessly on your face skin. Wait for about one hour and wash off with water.
