In Ayurvedic texts it has been said that the fresh juice applied on the face can result into fairness and loss of blemishes. This is because Aloe vera is slimy and mucoid by nature, and cold in action. It is bitter in taste and has a pungent after taste. Therefore according to Ayurveda, it is believed to subside the aggravated heat in the body, which is the cause of most of the skin problems. Recommended Dosage: 10 to 20 ml of freshly extracted juice. Local application of the pulp or juice is also recommended.
Turmeric is another herb that has for always been associated with beauty. It acts as a wonderful beauty therapy as well as efficient cosmetic use. Turmeric mixed with gram flour (besan) and sandalwood powder applied to the skin makes it soft and glowing and helps to remove blemishes. This can be supplemented with a little oil or butter. I would also recommend a pinch of turmeric in their daily intake of milk, as the antiseptic and anti allergic properties held by the herb is an effective cure in skin problems. Recommended Dosage: 1 to 3 grams of the powder. Local application as advised
