This Ayurvedic mask recipe, with soothing neem, turmeric, triphala, and chickpea powder, will keep your skin balanced.
The Ayurvedic mask recipe has similar properties to the cleanser/toner recipe above, but because a mask is usually left on the skin for a longer period of time, additional soothing and gentle ingredients are used.
Tip: Steam your face prior to applying the mask. This is a great practice before applying masks of any kind to the face.
- 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
- 1/4 teaspoon triphala powder
- 1/8 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon of dried neem or mint leaves (if using fresh leaves – use 1/2 tablespoon of mashed leaves and mix into your paste)
