Lift Eyes and Cheeks with Ayurvedic Sculpting Scrub

Yes, we can reduce puffy eyes, face, neck and throat with our secret yoga herb. What I’m going to share with you today is a face scrub that’s going to tone and sculpt your face.

We have 3 ingredients.

Calamus. Calamus is an herb from India. It moves and drains lymph. A lot of the puffiness that we see in our face, that kind of water puffiness, is actually our lymph and it’s congested – full of debris and toxins. And as we scrub with this ingredient, it’s going to move that out of the face. It’s also going to invigorate our skin and give us a lot of energy and brightness – we might even see the skin get very pink cheeked and red lipped.

Clay. I’m using my green clay and you can also use white or pink clay. Clay also detoxifies. It’s going to pull soot, oil, dead skin cells out of the pores and it’s also high in minerals so it’s going to mineralize or alkalize our skin.

Oat Powder. I just took organic oats and I put them in the blender and I zoomed them around and they turned to powder. Oats are going to moisten and nourish the skin.

Kiki’s Sculpting Scrub. Here’s the recipe.

1 Tablespoon Organic Calamus

1 Tablespoon Aztec Green Clay.

1/2 Tablespoon Homemade Organic Oat Powder

And now mix with 1ne tiny fancy spoon

Every morning and every night I massage my face with organic oil. You can use your new sculpting scrub once a day – morning or night – following your oil massage.

For spring and  summer I use 1/2 teaspoon of organic coconut oil.

You can use this as a make-up remover or just as a moisturizer cleaner. I’m massaging, getting in the jaw, lifting, toning. If I feel like, oooh, I crunch my brow, coming up through there. Over the brow. Getting all these good pressure points. And then up the neck. We have lymph glands here –  so we have a gentle massage there and along the throat. Now I’m going to repeat the same motions with the calamus sculpting scrub. It’s going to remove oil as well as toxins.

You can actually already feel that invigorating warming quality of the calamus. So move gently under the eyes. Gently above the eye area – moving that puffiness out.

Calamus has a really fragrant lovely smell and it’s used in a lot of perfumes. Sculpting. Toning. It feels great.

Ok, then run some warm water onto a cloth. Here’s my warm wet organic cotton face cloth. And yes, these face cloths get dirty. But they’re not disposable. I don’t use disposable things. So I just have about ten of these that I wash. See that pinkness in the cheek? That’s good. I like that. There we go. A lot of you ask me, Kiki what kind of soap do you use? Kiki, do you use soap? What kind of cleansers? This is what I use! It is traditional in India to use oils with powders to remove them. These powders are healing, nutritious, invigorating and they actually are going to change the appearance of your skin and the tome of your face in a way that I think you’ll be very happy with.

I’m going to add this recipe to my playlist for all natural skincare. Which you find by clicking here.
