We live in an era where people are extremely conscious of their skin, and its complexion and get hassled in any case of pigmentation.
We have countless face sheets and masks in the market and people willingly try each one of them. When the paste they applied is medicated, then it becomes a treatment and that is Mukha lepa.
Mukha – face
Lepa – paste
As the name suggests, Mukha lepa is the application of medicated paste on the face.
Mukha lepa remarkably enhances blood circulation and pacifies the vitiated doshas and soothes the skin.
By all these factors, blemishes, pigmentations, and scars are removed. Also, the doshas become normal preventing them from further vitiating the skin.
Doubtlessly, it can be used in cases of skin disorders like pimples, patches, and pigmentations. It has to be strictly avoided in case of indication, rhinorrhoea, anorexia, and after administration of nasal medications.
I’m sure there is nobody that would not know to apply a paste on the face. But when we do this as a medical procedure then certain pre-operative measures have to be included and also this has to be done without any kind of aberrations.
We either ask the patient to lie in the supine position or sit comfortably. A light massage on the face with medicated oil is followed by the application of paste on the face. We then ask the patient to rest and abstain from talking, singing, etc. We attentively keep checking the patient for any kind of complications.
After the paste dries, it is removed entirely and the face is washed.
All of us are sensitive about our skin. We are constantly in a tussle with pimples and patches. Therefore treating it medically under the supervision of a physician will surely produce results unimaginable. The mukha lepa soothes the skin and enhances blood circulation.
One of our concerns is skin aging and wrinkling and mukha lepa is the best solution for its delay.
It can also be a part of rejuvenation therapy wherein the skin is revived and rejuvenated.
