Oily composition selection
Indian Ayurvedic massage is performed using herbal oils. It can be a pure fatty oil or a composition of several fatty ones with the addition of essential ones.
Before use, the oil mixture is heated in a water bath to a comfortable temperature and applied in different quantities - a few drops on each part of the bodyor pour in a thin stream as needed.
In ancient times, talc or pea flour was used along with oil if the skin was very oily. Now there are high-quality cosmetic powders specifically for these purposes with useful substances in the composition - plant and mineral components that care for oily and rash-prone skin.
Sensitive, irritated skin also does not take a lot of oil, it needs a moderate amount or replacement with a cosmetic gel. After the procedures, the skin becomes soft, velvety, moisturized, healthier thanks to the valuable properties of oils and the healing effect of manual massage. The most commonly used oil is olive or sesame oil, sometimes cocoa or coconut.
Indian head massage
This practice can be part of a larger full-body massage or used alone to quickly relax and restore mental balance. Massaging some points of the head is a means of correcting well-being in case of overwork, emotional overload, tension, unstable mood.
The description of the technique includes light circular movements and pressure. So, the point in the area where the fontanel is located in newborns should be rubbed vigorously in a circle with a few drops of face oil (lighter than for the body, for example, peach or grape seeds). Just press the point just behind the ears to stimulate the marma that lies there.
Indian face massage perfectly removes accumulated fatigue and irritation, and its side effect is a contour tightening and skin, which often interests women much more than the balance of invisible energies.
To quickly tighten your face, just three tricks are enough.
Lubricate your fingers with facial oil and follow these movements:
- scissors using the index and middle fingers, press down the line from the chin to each ear 3-4 times;
- with your index finger, lightly press the fossa above the upper lip for 5 seconds, repeat 3-4 more times;
- with your ring fingers, press a point in the middle of the cheekbone, count to 5 and draw a line to the temples, slightly shifting the skin and tissues up and to the sides, repeat twice more.
If you feel that the skin on your face is warmer and tingles a little, and you also feel a change in your emotional state (accumulated irritation has come out, it has become easier on your soul, your face seems to have lightened), then everything is done as it should.
Daily treatments for the whole body or just the head in 10-14 days will return you both well-being and your natural freshness and beauty.
