Mukha Lepa

Mukha lepa is a traditional Ayurvedic skincare practice involving a facial mask made from botanicals, minerals, and other natural substances. Mukha lepa aims to restore equilibrium, vitality, and radiance to the individual’s skin, the largest organ of the body. It uses ingredients personalized to specific constitutional types and imbalances to purify, nourish, and rejuvenate the skin, enhancing physical beauty and overall well-being.

The Mukha lepa procedure involves blending natural ingredients into a paste, applying it evenly to the face and neck, and allowing it to rest for 15-20 minutes for absorption. Finally, the mask is rinsed off with lukewarm water, followed by gentle drying and moisturizing if needed. Mukha Lepa is also therapeutic for a range of dermatological concerns, including acne, eczema, hyperpigmentation, aging symptoms, and environmental damage. It promotes the elimination of toxins, enhances cellular regeneration, and imbues the skin with vital nutrients, embodying preventive medicine and fortifying the body’s innate capacity for self-healing and resilience. In clinical settings, Mukha lepa is a safe, natural, and time-honored adjunct to conventional skincare therapies. Under the guidance of qualified Ayurvedic doctors, individuals can harness the transformative power of this ancient practice to cultivate vibrant, luminous skin and a deeper sense of harmony and well-being. At Apollo AyurVAID, our trained Ayurvedic doctors and therapists ensure this traditional practice’s safe and effective application.
