Ten Ayurvedic Skin Care Tips for Glowing Skin

Author : Dr. Gurnam Saini  

Posted On : 19 November, 2018

Fountain of Youth” is a spring that existed in tales and was believed to restore youth of anyone who drinks or bathes in its water.   These tales make one wonder, how much youth was always coveted.  The skin being the first indicator of youth, much has been searched, researched and sought to protect, preserve and restore it.

 

How and why skin differs?

The three elementary substances or energies (doshas) determine one’s skin type.  The vata constitution has dry, thin, rough, cold or wrinkled skin.  The individuals with pitta constitution have delicate, fair skin.  Kapha skin is oily, smooth, moist and sometimes with large pores.   The imbalance of any of the three energies (tridosha) in the body results in skin ailments.

 

What goes in, shows in skin

Following the diet according to one’s body constitution and balancing tridosha goes far. Avoiding oily, spicy, very sour, excessive salty or acidic food and caffeinated or aerated drinks suppress pitta dosha.

 

Yoga and Meditation

Beauty comes from within. Stress and tension negatively impact the skin making it lusterless. The benefits of Yoga and meditation are endless.

 

Sun rays

Ayurveda believes sunrays have healing properties.  Skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, acne and fungal infections are treated with Ayurvedic sunbath.

 

Massage

Ancient practice of Abhayanga (self-massage) calms and moisturizes skin, cleanses sweat glands, soothes nervous system and improves blood circulation. 

 

Hygiene

Ayurveda recommends general hygiene (Svastha-vritta). 

 

Ayurvedic Detox

Detoxifying helps cleansing and flushing all the impurities out from the system.

 

Sleep

Early to bed and early to life is the key if the goal is to get glowing and healthy skin.

 

Hydration

Well-hydrated body results in well-hydrated skin. At least 8 glasses of water is recommended.

 

Routine

Dincharya, a Sanskrit word for daily routine is the simplest way to a health body and mind.

 

Chemicals

Ayurveda, a way to stay away from chemical products. 

Ayurveda has always stood the test of time and the natural herbs proved its efficacy time and again.
