How to do DIY AROMATHERAPY FACIAL AND ITS BENEFITS.
Aroma therapy is also known as essential oil therapy. In this therapy, oils made of various aromatic plants are used in combination to heal and nourish the skin. In this facial we are using lavender oil, orange scrub, lemon grass powder, tea rose powder and Papaya drops. Each of these components have a unique benefit for the skin. Lavender oil is rich in anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties which prevent acne breakouts; it relieves from tension and stress thereby preventing appearance of wrinkles and helps the skin to remain firm. The orange peel extract helps in de-tanning and lightening marks. Lemon grass extract acts like an astringent to the skin. Tea rose oil helps in lightening of blemishes and acne marks and in combination, all these provide you with nourished and glowing skin.
For this facial, follow these steps in order of appearance.
1. To start with, clean the face with baby oil using a piece of cloth. This would help remove all the external impurities.
2. Now apply a mix of lavender oil and moisturizing cream on the face. Massage in circular motion for 5 to 10 minutes. Wipe it using a cotton cloth.
3. Take a finger full of orange scrub and use it to exfoliate the dead skin cells. Wipe off with a cotton cloth.
4. For the massage, use a Orange cream and dab it on the face like dots. Now gently massage it on the skin for 5 to 10 minutes. This shall help soften the skin and provide it with benefits of the orange extract.
5. End the procedure by preparing a face pack using lemon grass powder, tea rose powder and few Papaya drops. Apply this paste and leave it on for 30 minutes.
6. Wipe it off with a damp cotton cloth and spray a bit of rose water to the skin.
The skin on our face is much more sensitive than the skin on the remaining body and hence one needs to take extra care of the facial skin. Following a regular routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing is a great practise but at times it just isn’t enough. Our facial skin is exposed to the atmospheric air 24 x 7 unlike our hands and legs and hence the chances of the skin deteriorating are much more. The various particles in the air such as pollutants, pollen grains and dust clog the skin pores and lead to formation of acne. Our skin needs to absorb a certain amount of Vitamin E from sun rays in order to stay nourished but over exposure to sun’s UV rays leads to premature skin aging, pigmentation, sunburns, wrinkles, freckles and in extreme cases, even skin cancer.
Facial is a procedure to revitalize and maintain the smooth, soft, glowing skin you possess. The procedure has various steps which involve the following: cleansing, scrub, massage, steam and face pack. These steps are followed in a particular order to yield maximum and optimum results. Generally the skin is first cleansed using a cleanser or lotion to remove the excess oil and impurities from the skin and prepare it for the next step of the procedure. Post this a scrub is gently massaged on the face. The scrub has solid particles or coarse granules which gently remove the tan and dead skin from the face, exposing the soft supple layer for nourishment. The skin is then exposed to steam in a moderate amount to open up the skin pores. It is important to open the skin pores before proceeding as it is only through these pores that skin can absorb the nourishment being provided. A nourishment cream containing various beneficial extracts is used to massage the face for at least 20 minutes to make sure that the skin is given enough time to absorb the nutrients. But just like it is important to open up the pores of the skin for nourishment, it is equally important to close these pores at the end of the procedure, hence a cooling face pack is applied to the skin which not only closes the pores but also gives a cooling effect to sensitive skin.
Doing a facial at least once a month revitalizes the skin, betters the blood circulation, relaxes the muscles and removes impurities and dead skin, giving you soft, smooth, supple and glowing skin.

Anti-science mentality is prevalent in modern society. This is evidenced most clearly in a complete distrust of chemicals synthesized in a laboratory. But does the activity of a molecule depend whatsoever on the pathway from which it formed? Let’s see why not.

Vitamins and supplements are a big area of conversation, controversy, and research. When considering ways to ensure that you are getting the nutrients you need for optimal health, Dana-Farber nutrition specialist Stacy Kennedy explains why it’s important to think about the benefits of “food first.”
I’m Stacy Kennedy, a nutrition specialist for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Welcome to Eating Well During Cancer. Today I’d like to talk with you about vitamins and supplements—what’s OK, what might be beneficial, and what should you avoid.
Vitamins and supplements are a big area of conversation, controversy, and research right now. But before we get into details around vitamin pills, I’d like to take a step back and think about the benefits of food first. A lot of research on vitamins and supplements comes out of data looking at what people were eating in their diet. We know that people who eat a variety of plant-based foods can gain a variety of important health-promoting nutrients that we call ‘phytonutrients.’
It’s really important to think about eating by the rainbow. Getting some red fruits and vegetables, what makes a tomato red is an antioxidant called ‘lycopene’ that’s going through a lot of research to see its potential role or benefit in prostate cancer. We have orange. What makes a carrot orange or a sweet potato have that vibrant, bright, orange hue is another antioxidant in the same family called ‘betacarotene.’ We also have yellow, like mango and banana. We know that green vegetables have a variety of important nutrients. Don’t forget about blue or purple—that anthocyanin that makes the blueberry blue is an antioxidant that can benefit our immune system as well. Then there’s also the white family, which is often overlooked—things like garlic and onions, which contain an important phytonutrient called ‘allium.’ There’s also ginger.
Many of these examples of antioxidants or phytonutrients also come in pill form, but what we want to do is take a look at food first. An as example of why this is important, let’s think about that betacarotene that we talked about in the carrot. Many years ago, there was a research study that found that people who ate more betacarotene-rich foods, like carrots, had lower rates of developing lung cancer. However, when people were given betacarotene supplement, the researchers actually had to stop the study early, because they found that the participants who were current or former smokers taking the active betacarotene were actually at risk for developing lung cancer—the total opposite effect of what we were hoping for in that type of study. We know now that high-dose antioxidant supplements during certain types of cancer treatment can actually reduce the effectiveness of that cancer treatment.
However, don’t give up your blueberries yet—getting antioxidants from foods doesn’t cause that same concern. The body knows how much to absorb and what nutrients your specific body needs at that current moment in time. So, eating as many blueberries as you want during cancer treatment is not going to be detrimental, like taking a high-dose antioxidant supplement could.
That doesn’t mean that all supplements are not healthy. It’s important to think about a supplement as just that—a supplement to your diet. For example. omega-3 fatty acids are an essential fat that we have to eat, and they play a role in many things—everything from helping to reduce inflammation to having a healthy brain and healthy mind and cognition. There’s a variety of benefits. We get omega-3 fats from certain types of fish, but we can also get them from things like walnuts. Some people may choose to take a supplement, but you always want to run that by your doctor or your nutritionist first. Look to get those nutrients from your foods first.
Now, some supplements might be necessary. For example, when you’re going through treatment, you may have low blood levels of certain nutrients, like magnesium, and in that case, you might need to take a supplement. Vitamin D is another example of a supplement that might be important to take. Vitamin D deficiency is very common, but it’s a blood test, so your doctor can check that out for you, and you can speak with your doctor and your nutritionist.
Hopefully you’ve learned that eating foods first is the best approach to getting your vitamins, and as far as supplements go, check and see—it’s always important to ask questions.
