Ayurvedic medicine has been practised in India for about 3000 years. It is one of the world's oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems, concentrating on the treatment of the body with organically obtained ingredients. Despite the globe's progress towards the future, Ayurveda has stood the test of time, with people all over the world preferring this natural approach to healing.
Every day, our skin is exposed to a million harmful particles, resulting in a variety of skin problems, the most prevalent of which is dull skin. To help improve one's appearance, a number of skincare products are currently available on the market, however the holistic approach to skin issues that Ayurveda skincare products take is what sets them apart.
Ayurvedic practises encourage one to respect their body and realise that your exterior beauty is a reflection of your inner self.
A customized and holistic Ayurvedic regime can help you achieve the precise balance of mind, body, and spirit that will help you become the best version of yourself- resulting in radiant and beautiful skin.
The Ayurvedic practice for skincare helps in keeping your skin well-nourished and contains specific natural ingredients as mentioned in ancient texts and by Ayurvedic experts.
Ayurveda treats ailments with herbs found in nature. These herbs are commonly used to make Ayurvedic skincare oils. The formulations recommended are based on the skin type.
There are 3 types of skin specified:
1. Vata skin: Thin, dry, and delicate. Mental stress or emotional stress like anger
or frustration can aggravate Vata and Pitta skin types.
2. Pitta skin: Soft, warm, and medium in thickness. Pitta skin is prone to skin
rashes, acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin gets affected quickly by skin
3. Kapha skin: Kapha skin is thick, oily, smooth, and cool. Excess oil can lead to
blackheads, pimples, and other such conditions.
Along with using the right products, Ayurveda also recommends some lifestyle changes to get the desired outcome.
1. Become a morning person
Ayurveda teaches that our body has a built-in detox, matching our circadian rhythms with nature gives the body time to repair on a cellular level. An early start to the day gives your body the time to adjust and perform the best. Begin your day with a glass of lemon water to eliminate toxins and hydrate skin.
2. Develop a skincare routine:
Ayurveda outlines three steps to beautiful skin: cleanse, nourish, and moisturize.
Washing your face removes dirt and toxins from the skin. A gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of it’s vital oils is highly recommended. Our “FACE BRIGHTENING DAILY CLEANSER” is made with 12 organic tribal forest sourced ingredients which suits all 3 types of skin. It helps in skin brightening, getting an even tone, for spot reduction, tan removal, blackhead removal and imparts a young, vivacious and clear skin. Bathe your face thoroughly with warm water. Gently wash the face with the cleanser which removes the dead skin cells
without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
The next step is facial oils for nourishment. Oils are a hallmark of Ayurveda and can be used by all skin types to balance the body's own oil production- even people with acne, and overproduction of sebum, could benefit from a facial oil. Our “24K KUMKUMADI THAILAM” is a beautiful face oil blend for a golden complexion. The ayurvedic recipe helps in skin brightening, anti-aging, and gives you a radiant glowing skin. Gently massage face and neck with your finger tips. Take 3-4 drops of oil and apply it evenly all over your face. Self-massage for just a few minutes a day can improve immune functions, improve sleep, and benefit skin circulation. And lastly moisturize to let the skin be hydrated and heal itself from the environmental pollution.
3. Diet and Exercise
For all types of constitutions, Ayurveda promotes a healthy, whole-foods, mostly vegetarian diet. Skin disorders can be caused by fatty, fried, refined, and processed foods, salt, sugar, shellfish, and red meat so avoid them as much as you can. Exercise at least five times a week, according to Ayurvedic specialists, until perspiration accumulates down the spine and under the arms. Exercising encourages perspiration (which lushes toxins from the body), improves circulation, and relaxes the mind.
Finally, Ayurveda invites you to define beauty in your own terms. We're under pressure to appear in a specific way due to social media. Ayurveda encourages us to think about beauty in a more holistic way. Allow Ayurveda to guide you in discovering your own inner strength, self-love, and exquisite beauty.
