- Clean food
When choosing foods to eat, always opt for organic, local, and seasonal foods. These kinds of foods are pesticide-free and the preservatives present in them make the cells in your body more energetic and resilient, affecting how you feel, look, and age.
Water helps to keep your body refreshed and hydrated, and also helps with scars, wrinkles, and blemishes. As per Ayurveda, water should be consumed at room temperature or hot, rather than cold or iced. This helps boost your digestive fire (Agni). For better hydration, turn your regular water into an electrolyte drink by adding a teaspoon of honey, a pinch of mineral salt, and a squeeze of lime or lemon. This helps your body retain water for a longer period.
