There is a misconception that oil is bad for your skin and gives you acne. In fact, a daily oil massage of you body and face keep your skin healthy and beautiful especially with oils such as, sesame and coconut oil that have natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Many oils are in fact rich in minerals like copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, and antioxidants that get absorbed into your skin. Gentle oil massages keep the skin soft and healthy.
We suggest applying the appropriateDoshic (body constitution) oil for your body and for that time of the season. The oils are: sesame oil for Vata constitutions, coconut or sunflower for Pitta, and sweet almond oil for Kapha individuals. If in summer, perhaps tend towards coconut oil, in winter sesame, and in spring sweet almond oil. Rosehip oil can also be a great option!
Facial oils are a great addition to a skin care routine! We’ve switched and our skin is softer and clearer than ever!
