Skin Care

The winters can be very harsh on your skin. Strong winter winds can steal all the moisture and irritate the skin. Tight dry skin and chapped lips can be avoided with simple winter care regimen. The very best natural way to keep skin  moisture is to give a warm oil massage.

Oil massage should be daily practiced because it gives:

  • Lustrous and healthy skin
  • Relief from exertion and good sleep
  • Delays ageing of skin and  long life.
