Ayurvedic secrets for simple & sparkling beauty (Part 2)
Ayurveda is full of beauty secrets. So many that I wrote a new article on it. Here are some more Ayurvedic secrets for simple, sparkling beauty.
Natural & Gently Cleanse
The whole body should be treated, and not just your face. You should cleanse, moisturize and hydrate your entire body. Ayurveda advises using only the best natural cleansers, as your skin affects all aspects of your well-being, whether they are emotional, mental, or sensory.
Remember that the skin is the largest and most important organ in the human body. It is also the seat of Vata. For this reason, you should not disturb your skin’s natural intelligence by using harsh chemical cleaners.
You can easily get confused by the wide variety of herbal cleansers and soaps on the market. You can find out what you should look for by reading the ingredients behind the products. Look for almond oil, grapefruit, or orange extracts blended with other herbal components. There are also a lot of chemicals in herbal products. I suggest choosing the product with the fewest unpronounceable terms. Fruit and herbal products moisturize and revitalize your skin. They also help maintain a youthful glow.
Choose a cleansing product with pure glycerine specially formulated to suit your skin type. If you have dry skin, look for products that contain lemongrass. People with oily or combination skin should use cleansing creams and soaps that contain citronella.
A Beauty Sleep/ Good Night’s Rest
It would help if you slept well to maintain youthful, radiant skin. Try going to sleep earlier if you have trouble falling asleep. Before 10 pm? Many people sleep better during the “Kapha” time of night. Ayurveda recommends eating dinner early, between 6 and 10 pm. This will give your body time to digest the meal before you retire. Ayurveda recommends an early evening meal because it gives your body time to digest your dinner before retiring and sleeping.
You may have trouble falling asleep, but you cannot stay asleep. These are symptoms of Pitta sleep disorders. You should avoid spicy and sour food, such as chilly or vinegar. If you wake up in the middle of your sleep, it may be because you are hungry. Make sure you eat a proper dinner.
Sleep before 10 pm because that’s when the Kapha and Pitta nighttimes intersect. Sleeping after ten in the Pitta hour will result in a more agile sleep than a deep, restful sleep. Avoid watching violent movies and TV shows at night. They can disrupt Pitta dosha.
This is a different type of sleep disorder where you get good sleep but wake up exhausted. An imbalance in Kapha Dosha or Kapha energy may cause it. You will need to balance Kapha dosh if this is your case. You can balance Kapha by getting up early, exercising during the day, and eating lighter, less oily food. It would help to eat a light meal several hours before bedtime to allow your body to digest it properly.
Exterminate Stress Lines
You need more than just a good sleep in today’s stressful world. You will see a dull, drawn-out look on your face if you are constantly under mental or emotional stress. Stress and sleep deprivation are linked – one can lead to the other. It’s therefore essential to consider both. Yoga and meditation are great ways to deal with stress. You can find ways to deal with stress if you believe it is part of your job and you cannot escape it. Green Tea and Oolong Tea can help calm your nerves. Find herbal tablets to help reduce mental stress and increase attention if keeping track of tea consumption in your busy schedule is brutal.
Abhyanga (Ayurvedic Massage)
Abhyanga, or oil massages, are a great way to relieve stress, calm your body and increase skin tone. Morning oil massages are so stimulating that many people no longer require caffeine to wake up. This is good for both your health and your skin, as caffeine is aging your skin and can damage your liver. Sesame Oil is best used with warm, organic, and cold-pressed Sesame Oil. It gels well for all skin types. Sesame Oil lubricates the skin, cleans the pores, and penetrates the lipid layer, replacing old, clogged toxins lipids cells.
You can also use oils infused with herbs known to balance and nourish the body. This will help you get the most out of your morning massage.
After your morning abhyanga, take a warm bath. This will allow the impurities to be dislodged and flow into the digestive system, where they can easily be removed. Massage can also help you fall asleep. If you have trouble sleeping, massage ayurvedic oils that promote sleep on your lower arms, legs, hands, and feet.
Don’t Eat Leftovers, Frozen Foods, and Canned Goods
Our busy lives rely on processed, canned, or frozen food. These foods have little nutritional value and lose their most beneficial qualities when processed or frozen. When your body receives less nutrition than it needs, it shows up on your face. The worst part is that these foods are difficult to digest, and they end up causing impurities within your body. When you consume a lot of leftovers, toxic digestive substances, also known as “ama,” build up and clog the pores of your skin and the internal channels of your body that transport nutrients and moisture.
Ama can cause wrinkles, grey skin, and aging. Amavisha is a more reactive toxin that can cause breakouts, rashes, and other skin problems.
Skin Friendly Foods
Healthy skin-friendly foods are essential for nourishing your skin. Skin-friendly foods are more than just good for your skin. They also act as the building blocks of skin regeneration.
You should follow the diet recommendations based on your body type, skin type, and season. Get information about foods that nourish your skin and create balance in your mind-body system. Second, certain foods are suitable for all skin types and beneficial to overall health.
Fruits that enhance skin suppleness include a variety of sweet, juicier fruits. Adding apples or pears to your breakfast is a great way to improve the suppleness of your skin. Grains that enhance intelligence – These include whole grains, which are beneficial for your skin as they provide plenty of minerals and give you the full range of nature’s intelligence. Ayurveda recommends grains such as quinoa and couscous. Mix them to add variety, or try a new grain at each meal.
Vegetables are rich in vitamins, fiber, and skin-friendly spices, among the most important vegetables. Leafy green vegetables, in particular, are excellent for your skin. These foods can make your cheeks look rosy because they contain essential nutrients like iron and calcium that nourish the skin and blood tissue.
Your body requires as much protein as possible. Eat plenty of protein that is easy to digest. This list includes pulses like yellow split beans (mung daal) and dairy products, including paneer, whole milk, and lassi.
All skin types can benefit from these light proteins, though people with Kapha would prefer to consume more astringent proteins like panir than sweeter proteins like dal. Almond butter and other nut butter are a great way to get more protein into your diet.
Ayurveda suggests spices for detoxification.
Ayurvedic cooks recommend spices. Spices aid digestion which is good for your health. They are also helpful to detoxify and nourish the skin. Turmeric may be your best friend. Many skin care products contain turmeric. Both internal and external wounds can be treated with it. Turmeric is an antioxidant that purifies your skin’s deepest layers. It also aids in cleansing and re-balancing the blood, fat, and fatty tissue. Cumin, fenugreek, or black pepper are other spices that have the same effect.
Here is a simple recipe for skin nourishment – Mix three parts turmeric with six parts coriander and six parts fennel, then add two or three tablespoons of milk. Make it thick so the mixture won’t drip onto your face. Apply the mask to your face, and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse the show off with water.
Your Very Own Beauty Calendar
You can make your beauty schedule to help you keep track. You can write down when you want to do something and what time. You can, for example, write your daily customized routine on the calendar – your routines for cleansing, toning, and moisturizing the skin.
Also, you can write down beauty routines. For example, you use bentonite once or twice weekly (say on Tuesdays and Fridays? for deep exfoliation. Write down reminders for yourself to eat healthy foods (a large bowl of fruit every other day or green juice three times a week? You can also write down reminders to eat the right foods (a big bowl of fruit salad every other day and green juices three times a week ).
