Your skin is what can attract people towards you most and it costs you very little to have a gorgeous skin. This is because our beautiful skin is our natural God-gifted asset but we only at times are too negligent about skincare and use series of chemical-based products on our skin indiscriminately that don’t match without skin type or are too harsh for our delicate skin. The result is skin damage.
Secondly, in this modern era we are too used to getting drawn to fast foods rather than a healthy balanced diet with adequate veggies and fresh fruits. That too again makes our skin deficit in the essential skin nourishing nutrients. Furthermore the modern sedentary lifestyle, late night work schedules with least physical activity and inadequate rest all are just enough to give you loads of skin problems like acne, dry skin, dull skin, excessive oily skin, rashes, pigmentation, tanning, sagging, fine lines and wrinkling of skin, dark circles, uneven skin tone, spots, sunburns and so on.
The conventional skincare treatments and products only address the external skin issues that are visible but if you want a permanent respite from your skin issues and want a radiant glow like never before ‘Ayurveda’ should be the only means you are to go for. This is a healing science that took its birth in the Indian soil far back in the Vedic age and the Ayurvedic remedies making use of pure natural herbs will alleviate your skin problem by addressing the very root cause of it that may lie hidden in your physiology.
Ayurveda propounds to give you a glowing skin by correcting the dosha imbalance in your body; i.e. the pitta dosha or vata dosha or kapha dosha. These imbalances may arise if your mind and body are not balanced to each other and there’s an incongruity between you and the nature around. Incorrect foods, incorrect lifestyle incompatible with the seasonal changes plus one’s basic nature can actually create such imbalances. But with ayurveda you really can restore the balance and have a beautiful glowing skin.
Here are some of my proven Ayurvedic beauty tips for glowing skin:
1. Turmeric (Haldi) is one amazing herb that can give your skin a radiant glow. If you consume a root of raw turmeric daily in the morning in empty stomach it will cleanse your blood of toxins and automatically make your skin glow. Also topical application of a paste of turmeric can heal the acne damaged skin or acne affected areas because it has both anti inflammatory action and anti bacterial power that would destroy all acne causing bacteria. Turmeric also erases the acne scars. So what you get is a spotless glow.
For your turmeric face pack, you can mingle some rice powder, lime juice and yogurt with the turmeric powder to make a smooth paste. Apply it all over your face. Keep for 15 minutes and then wash off with cool water. This will remove tan, dullness of skin and give you a remarkable glow of skin.
2. Marigold (Genda) flowers which you probably have seen growing in your garden or being sewn into a beautiful garland to be offered to the deities in your worship hall, can even give you a radiantly glowing skin. What you have to do is smash the petals of some flowers, add some milk cream or raw milk into it and apply on your face. Rinse off after 15 minutes with lukewarm water. Your skin will be stripped of all dead cells and look glowing like anything.
3. Aloe Vera (Ghritkumari) can give you a beautiful glowing skin by sloughing off dead cells, maintaining the skins moisture balance, keeping the skin smooth and supple. It’s loaded with antioxidants that’ll brush aside your skin’s dullness and rejuvenate it with a mind-blowing glow and freshness. You can apply the Aloe Vera sap directly on your skin.
So these are some of the ayurvedic tips that can truly add glow to your dull skin. :)
