Poornima, an ex-IITian firmly believes that each skin type is unique and that you understand your skin the best. So, attend this workshop and churn up a cream that will help your skin relax and heal!

Mumbai, like many other Indian cities, is grappling with ever-increasing pollution. If you live there, you probably cover your face with a scarf while stepping outside, to keep your skin safe from the harmful dust particles.

What if your skincare regime could include a skin-healing cream that gives it extra protection to fight the harmful effects of pollution?

A skincare routine unique as you are:

Broadly, we can categorise skin types as oily, dry and extremely dry. But does that mean we don’t have more specific needs? Certainly not.

Poornima believes that we need to take a close look at the raw materials that work for our skin and ensure that our personal care products include those. This is precisely what she will teach in her workshop.

“When it comes to skincare, every ingredient counts. In these three hours, we will discuss various skin types, various skin issues that you will face and make moisturising creams that will help your skin heal. Later, you can experiment with other ingredients that you may find are more powerful for your skin,” explains Poornima.

A Mumbai media professional who changed tracks:

Poornima worked in the creative field for nearly thirty years. During the time, she had realised a few things about the younger generation.

“They are aware, like to invest in themselves and get involved in everything they do. Take the example of tourist spots. People don’t just want to visit the places. They want an authentic experience there. This is true not just of travel but also personal care regimes. When I decided to start The Hand Madness, a wellness label, I knew this observation would come into good use,” she shares with The Better India.

An IIT-Bombay postgraduate, Poornima decided to only use handmade chemical-free skincare products after a horrible rash episode.

By this time she had quit her job, and when the rashes refused to improve, even after she had tried a range of products, she decided to concoct a product tailored for her needs.

“I read a lot about Ayurveda and about roots, leaves and fruits, whose effects may not be immediate but last for a long time. It took some experimentation and failed batches, but I came up with a basic formula that helps me make moisturisers, restorative creams and insect repellents without the use of harsh chemicals,” shares Poornima.

What to expect in the Mumbai workshop:

Poornima will guide you through the basics of what ingredients are best used to make creams. Almond oil, cocoa butter and such other beneficial products are always a favourite, but you will also learn what combinations work in what skin types.

“During my aromatherapy sessions, I discovered that certain plant extracts are great insect repellents. These can be sprayed in your car, small rooms or even added to creams to protect you from mosquitoes. This session will cover these repellents too,” she says.

At the end of the workshop, you can take home three products: cream for dry skin, one for oily skin and a plant-based insect repellent.
