From SPF lotion to chilled coolers, thankfully there's a lot that can be done to beat the heat. Urvashi Rautela is choosing mud therapy for its many wellness and beauty benefits this summer.

Clay face packs are a popular skin care choice, especially for those with oily skin. Why that is the case is because clay absorbs excess oil and clears out the pores to reduce the chance of pimples and greasiness. Apart from the beauty benefits of clay, mud therapy has been an age-old naturopathy treatment for its many wellness benefits. It can be applied through a pad or directly on the skin in order to get its benefits.
Also termed as mitti chikitsa, mud therapy is also an Ayurvedic wellness and beauty treatment as it corresponds to the Earth element. In Ayurveda, mud therapy is carried out by selecting a suitable type of mud, combining with herbs, applying and then waiting for 20 to 30 minutes in order to dry naturally.
