Are chemical-filled, exfoliating, gritty skincare your go-to?
Gritty skincare can really hurt your skin, especially when you have to scrub and rub by the end! They claim to add a glow to your skin and make it look clearer, cleanse it and unclog pores. Plus, quite a few of them contain natural ingredients like walnuts or almond and the like, which carry a myriad of benefits for the skin, but what about the damage? What about the rigorous scrubbing? What about the thinning of the skin? This is one of the things to never use for skin CARE!
You’ll be pleased to know that unlike those gritty skincare, Chandaluna Ayurvedic Facial Mask is a very smooth powder-to-paste formulation consisting of finely ground Ayurvedic ingredients such as Nutgrass, Indian Blue Water Lily, Plum, Sandalwood, Indian Barberry and Large Leaf Beauty Berry - all 100% natural and superfoods for your skin!
These ingredients, when combined with plain water, floral water, milk, yogurt or honey, get activated and form a smooth-as-silk paste that can be applied to the skin directly. This paste, although appears and feels extremely soft on the skin, also acts as a physical exfoliator and acts tough on the appearance of dullness, dryness and signs of aging.
What’s more interesting is after the paste is just about to dry fully, splash water over your wash. You’ll see that the dried paste melts off your face like a candy. No need to scrub or buff rigorously, or put your face through agony.
Now, if you are someone who might have come across those colorful teeny-weeny particles in your face mask/face scrub/face wash/face polish/exfoliator that helps cleanse your skin better, it’s important you read this further.
Those tiny particles are called microbeads. Sounds cute, ain’t it?
Well, not so much.
Those are plastic particles, 5 millimeters or even smaller in size, and are non-biodegradable in nature (because, plastic). When you use beauty products with microbeads in them and later wash it off, these go into the drain. Because they are too tiny to be filtered, they end up settling into the marine sediment. Marine inhabitants ingest these particles, which then goes further down the food chain
Unlike that, an Ayurvedic face mask like Chandaluna, made with pure herbs does what an abrasive face mask or mud would do, but without scraping the layers off your skin! It smoothly and gently yet very potently physically exfoliates and gives it the luxurious beauty treatment it requires, without causing any harm to you or the environment.
