The Twice Daily Ritual: The first role of Ayurvedic skincare is cleanse, nourish, and moisturize no matter what type of skin you have. This 3-step routine is essential to counter the effects of the environment, stress, and the skin’s natural imbalances.

CLEANSE: In the palm of your hand, mix a few
drops of water to a small amount of Kapha Herbal Cleanser to make a liquidy paste. Gently massage the mixture on the face in upward, circular motions. Rinse with warm water.

NOURISH: After cleansing, mix 3 drops each of Kapha Face Essential Oil and Liposomes Vitamin C Serum and massage thoroughly over face and neck until oils have fully absorbed. Best applied on clean, damp skin.

MOISTURIZE: Apply Neem Purifying Cream over face and neck to provide a protective hydrating barrier.

For extra exfoliation, add less water to your cleanser to obtain a thicker consistency. The mixture can also be left on the skin for 5-10 minutes and will work as a mask, further absorbing impurities.
