How to give an Ayurvedic Facial Treatment

There are about 8 steps in Ayurvedic Facial... although the 9th is an optional. Ayurvedic treatment helps immensely.

1. Cleansing: The best cleanser is skimmed Milk. Apply it in the morning before having bath. The appropriate method is to keep rubbing it until it is soaked completely, leaving a dry sticky feel. Also apply this on arms and legs when they get tanned. Leave it for 10-15mins and then head to bath.
