Summer is a great time to show off your skin! It’s also a time that your skin needs a lot of nourishment and care. So here are some of the Ayurvedic skincare remedies and recipes for a naturally gorgeous and plump looking skin.

To help pacify the thirst of dry skin, remove and clean the dirt from pores, and a nice body polish - try exfoliating with honey, sugar, salt, and oats. This exfoliation recipe will have you glowing like the sun!

1. Ayurvedic Exfoliating Scrub

3 Ayurvedic Beauty Recipes For Dry Summer Skin

You can use this on the entire body a couple of times in a week, including your face. It helps to remove makeup, dirt, and dead skin, leaving you look absolutely radiant.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of unpasteurized honey
  • 1/4 tbsp organic sea salt
  • 2 tbsp organic coarse sugar

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until you achieve a paste like consistency. Take out the mix using a spoon or you can use hands. Gently rub it on your entire body or any body part. It will help cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin, making it look eve-toned and radiant. Store in a wide mouth container in the shower so you can use it as part of your daily beauty regime.

Now that your pores are open it’s time for nourishment. One of the most popular skin nourisher in Ayurveda is chickpea flour.

There are many versions of this mask. It can be mixed with amla or Indian gooseberries, yogurt, cinnamon, or turmeric. For the summers, try to keep it cool and simple.

2. Chickpea Face Mask

  • 1 tbsp chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp water

Add enough water to the flour to create a paste. Apply to your face or entire body and allow the mask to dry on your body. Once the mask is dry you can rub it off of your body or dampen the skin with water and massage it in before you wash it off.

This mask tightens the skin and always makes me feel five years younger. This step can be done once a week.

Now that you’ve stripped away oil and tightened the skin, add moisture. I like simple rose water dabbed on the skin, but we can also use a delicate massage oil.
