Maintain a youthful look by using natural Ayurvedic products
Both internal and external factors highly contribute to skin aging and it is therefore very important for you to take care of your skin. The most common internal factors that lead to skin aging include the inability of the skin to retain moisture, low level of elastin being produced, inability of skin to regenerate new skin and so on. External factors include over exposure to the sun or extreme cold, smoking, stress, lack of exercise and poor eating habits.
Ayurveda has some tricks that will help you maintain youthful skin without having to load up on chemicals. Learning how to balance the three doshas;Vata, Kapha and Pitta, is the secret to youthful skin.
Accumulation of Vata is what causes skin irritation during some season. This dosha is predominant in older people and during the fall and winter. If you learn how to slow down Vata you will have a youthful glow all through.
Ayurvedic skin care tricks. Always eat your vegetables: Ensure that your daily diet is loaded up with vegetables that have high water content and are easier to digest. Cucumber, lettuce, carrots, tender asparagus are some of the vegetables that have high water content. They are tridoshic meaning that they are suitable for all skin types.
Be a bird: Adding nuts to your meals will help in improving the condition of your skin. They contain omega 3, fiber for digestion and healthy fats. Add sunflower seeds, chia seeds, almonds and other nuts to your food for the benefit of your skin.
Have one more cup of tea: you need to keep your body hydrated all the time and one more cup of herbal tea will do the work. A cup of ginger and lemon tea during the day will improve your digestion and this is very good for your skin.
Exercise: since Vata is cold, exercising will prevent it from accumulating. Doctors always recommend exercising as a way of maintaining healthy and toned joints and muscles as well as sweating out toxins. Exercise also helps to improve blood circulation and digestion.
If you are the kind of person who cannot stand aches and pains, always choose exercise that will make you feel good and energized. Choose exercise that allows you to have fun like yoga, dancing, jogging or taking walks.
Sleep like a baby: Aggregated Vata can cause anxiety and stress which can lead to insomnia and this is very bad for your skin. It is often said that getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep is good for a healthy and glowing skin.
Keep your skin moisturized: we all know that staying hydrated inside is important, but you should not forget to moisturize the outside. I’m sure you have heard that cleansing and moisturizing are the most crucial steps to keeping your skin healthy and young. Ensure that you choose only natural Ayurvedic products for your skin health.
