For Indian women, it also extends to beauty. As women we give our facial skincare more emphasis than other parts of our body. When we have healthy face skin we feel better and more confident. Ayurveda can really help in this. Harness the power of Ayurveda if you want dewy, glowing skin with these great face masks:

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

@alyx just a quick comment. Dermatologists are obviously going to go against natural remedies to promote their own products.

Amazing thnx

@sidrah your last sentence really made your entire paragraph pointless. "a scientific theory is only proven fact until proven wrong" and it's been proven that these things are bad for skin. I don't live in the states, so I don't know what it's like there where you have to pay for everything, but here in Canada dermatologists are free and recommend products, but they don't sell anything so they will make money whether you listen to their recommendation or not. And many derms agree some natural practices are incredibly helpful, mine helped me into a natural oil cleansing routine and helped me get rid of my kp without any store made products. But they all agree, because of the things they've been taught, that anything like baking soda, tumeric, cinnamon, etc will cause micro tears in the skin, just like rubbing sand paper on your skin would cause tears and friction burns, and that citrus causes chemical burns. It's science. It's fact. Like I said, go ahead and ruin your skin. But I don't want people who don't have any skincare knowledge in their background to see this and irreversibly ruin their skin.

Nice thanks

Fun! I'll try some of these!

In other words : how to irritate your skin like a mofo. 90% of the ingredients on this list should never be used on your skin. Especially your face. Lemon can cause burns, and half the ingredients can cause micro tears and damage your skin so much. Stick to researched products.

I have to agree with Alyx. Although I'm a fan of tea tree oil, so many of the natural treatments did more harm than good. On the other hand, I do not like some of the retinol or benzoyl peroxide stuff either. Gentle skincare and a good diet is best. I love Kiehl's and Jurlique for skincare.

@ashley dermatologists don't make any products. If they only promote the products they provide, then they should have their license taken away. And I'm not talking about the ones that you can go see. I'm talking about ones in labs doing testing.

I love facial recipes where ingredients are easily obtainable. Thanks!
