Most of us focus on the face and forget the body. Therefore, sometimes even if your face is clear and radiant, the skin on your body is another story – dry, patchy and prone to breakouts. So how do you get your body to match your face? The first thing would be to use a gentle soap or shower gel that doesn’t strip the skin of moisture. Then, the most important step is to add a replenishing body oil that works on multiple problems. Jwalini Retexturising Skin Treatment is one such oil that literally retextures the skin on both your face and body to make it even toned, moisturised and bump free.
The oil itself is made out of simmering Coconut Milk with Sesame Oil, Cardamom, Cinnamon, and Frankincense. Because Coconut Oil is rich in lauric acid, it provides immunity against microbial infections. This means that it works to help improve conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis, which is usually caused by a fungus. Even in conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, it helps soothe and remove dry, dehydrated patches. Green Cardamom has potent antioxidant properties that protect the skin against free radical damage. But that’s not all. This fragrant spice also helps moisturise and nourish dry skin.
Frankincense has excellent uses for your complexion. It helps lift and tighten, reduce blemishes, pores, and wrinkles. However, the most important quality of this resin is that it also helps accelerates the healing of wounds. Therefore, if you have stretch marks, this oil is ideal to smooth and change their appearance. However, it is important to use this oil on fresh stretch marks that are slightly pink. This is when they have the best chance of being erased. Once they become dry and set, you may be able to reduce their appearance but not remove them altogether.
The best time to use Jwalini would be right after your shower, when your skin is still slightly damp. By massaging the oil into damp skin you are adding both moisture (via water) and lipids (via oils) – these are the two essential components that keep the skin looking moist and fresh. Another great way to enhance the properties of this oil would be to apply it right after dry body brushing. TO DO: take a body brush (made of natural bristles) and rub it all over a dry body in long upward strokes starting at your ankles all the way till your heart. This action stimulates lymphatic drainage, a process through which toxins are eliminated from the body. When you add Jwalini to the mix, you actually help re-texturise the skin even further, reducing cellulite and enhancing softness.
