Ayurvedic Skin Care Tips

Ayurveda was one of the earliest adopters of the mantra that beauty comes from one’s inner self. Ayurvedic skin care is a holistic approach to healthy and glowing skin. It involves taking care of the skin from within. 

If you are searching for holistic solutions to your skincare problems, look no further, as we have compiled for you the top 10 ayurvedic skincare ideas for glowing skin that will purify and nourish you from the inside.

  1. Proper sleep

This practice will protect your beauty as not getting enough sleep causes an increase in the number of inflammatory cells in the body. This in turn worsens and triggers skin issues, like dermatitis, and acne.  Moreover, it also dehydrates your skin, causing it to age quickly and become dry.

  1. Avoid mixing incompatible food items

  • Milk and Fruit: Fruits are easily digested by our body whereas milk takes time. Therefore, during digestion, the fruit tends to curdle the milk, thus creating acidity.
  • Milk and Fish/Meat: Fish and meat heat your body while milk tends to cool it down. Mixing these contrasting food items blocks vital channels in your body.
  • Ghee and Honey: When taken together, these food items react with the digestive juices in the body and produce harmful toxins that can trigger neurological, rheumatic, and skin-related issues.
  1. Drink tea

Hydration is crucial for glowing skin. Try drinking water as well as sipping herbal tea (made with ginger, chamomile, or lemon) throughout the day to keep your digestive tract healthy.

  1. Watery vegetables

Vegetables that are high in water content are easily digested and are therefore good for your skin and body. Vegetables like radishes, carrots, lettuce, cucumber, asparagus, etc. are said to be purifiers. Try combining 3-5 vegetables for maintaining healthy skin.

  1. Exercise

Exercise not only benefits your lungs and heart, but is also an important factor for radiant skin. Exercise regulates blood flow and enhances skin metabolism, making you youthful and healthy.

  1. Meditation

Meditation and breathing exercises help calm your mind. When your mind is at rest ‘chi’ or positive energy flows throughout your body, filling your cells with essential energies. This helps to rejuvenate your skin as well as reduce overall stress.

  1. Moisturized skin

Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized is crucial. Apart from drinking plenty of water, engage in oil massages (Abhyanga) as it is an important part of ayurvedic skincare. Massaging the skin with herbal oils relaxes the tissues and muscles, boosts blood flow and prevents dry skin. 

  1. Eat seeds and nuts

Adding a good amount of seeds and nuts (sunflower seeds, pistachios, almonds, and flax seeds) to your diet helps in keeping your skin glowing and healthy. They contain fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and healthy fats which are beneficial for your cardiovascular system and skin.

  1. Reduce salt and sugar intake

A high quantity of salt spikes your blood pressure levels, which in turn increases your chances of cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, excessive salt and sugar deteriorate overall skin health, cause acne, and sometimes trigger allergic reactions.

  1. Avoid excessive sun exposure

While it is true that we all need sun exposure as it gives us our daily dose of Vitamin D, excessive exposure is considered to be harmful, as the UV rays emitting from the sun cause sunburn, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, etc.
