Whereas Recta Juneja, Spa Consultant says that there is a need of spa treatments and rituals throughout the year. Skin needs to be taken care all the time due to various causes such as too many fats or sugars, over exposure to the sun, drastic weight fluctuations, lack of sleep, not enough exercise and of course weather changes and many other reasons according to one’s situation and lifestyle.
She adds “I would say especially for India (Delhi). Monsoon skin and hair conditions have suffered intense damage due to heat wave and massive dust storms. Skin becomes very dry and tends to get blackheads which arc most common for blemishes.’
Kamra says that while all the spas are suitable for every season, during monsoon, there are therapies in Ayurveda which are good to be taken in Monsoon such as Abhyangam, Sirodhara, Herbal Facial & Face Pack, Takaradhara, Podikizhi etc.
Abhyangam is a soothing massage performed by one or two therapists who drizzle warm herbal oil on the body, then massage it in with brisk, often long and flowing movements. The warmth of the oil and the brisk movements are designed to drive the herbs into the body, which has a detoxifying effect.
The Shirodhara is an element of Ayurvedic medicine which today combines ancient Ayurvedic wisdom with modern health-and-beauty techniques in a winning spa combination. The word shirodhara breaks down into two ideas, ‘shiro’ meaning head, and ‘dhara’ means flow. Together they form a concept that aims to bring physical and emotional balance by rejuvenating the spirit and preserving health. This is achieved through a relaxing technique in which warmed oil is poured over a client’s forehead, followed by head and shoulder massage and a warming body wrap to seal in moisture.
Juneja says, -According to me, body scrubs and body wraps are best skin nourishes in monsoon. During a smith massage metabolism is stimulated, cells are oxygenated. Toxins are flushed out, thereby casing fluid mention and cellulite as well as removing dead cells from the skin’s surface. Afterwards skin becomes smooth and radiant and Wrap is to enhance the scrub process.
Not only our body but our facial skin too needs a good massage. For face, Juneja suggests that though this is an individual preference or recommendation by beauty expert’s according to their skin type and skin condition. Still it’s great to use watermelon & honey facial which has fresh cucumber known for its cooling properties on the skin.
“Watermelon and yoghurt are gentle exfoliators and skin coolers and honey is a good nourishing and hydrating ingredient. This is more of a home spa so the fresh ingredients can be used.Crush watermelon slice to cleanse eye and lips amt. face and whereas use yoghurt and honey to cleanse neck. Tone with cucumber juice, and then exfoliate with almond and Aloe Vera mix. Leave for 10 seconds on the face and neck then gently massage and remove it. Massage the skin with almond oil and aloe juice and then apply the oatmeal and milk mask over the face for 10 minutes. Wash off the face, apply vitamin E capsule, pierced, on to the face to moisturize”, adds Juneja.
