Ayurveda is the practice of healing your body from within to create a better balance and start to naturally heal various conditions and issues with your mind and body. It can also be wonderful for natural beauty when you begin adapting the right principles. Here are some different ways Ayurveda can help with your natural beauty.
Adjust Skin Care for the Season
Ayurveda is all about using more natural products and really trying to heal your body. This includes when you are trying to take good care of your skin. A big part of this is knowing when to adjust your skin care according to the season, weather or climate. While in the summer, you might want to use products that keep your skin dry due to additional sweating from the hot sun, you should use more moisturizing products in the winter when the dry air affects your skin.
Exfoliate Gently with Sugar
Exfoliation is an important part of your skincare routine, but when you are using practices of Ayurveda, you want to use products that are as natural as possible. For this purpose, use sugar to make your own exfoliating product, but not just any sugar. Try to use raw sugar if you can, or switch to a soft brown sugar for those seasonal face scrub recipes. Avoid anything store-bought that might contain additives or artificial ingredients.
Use Natural Products for Moisture
When you want to add-in more moisture to your face, you should also think of holistic products or anything that is in its most natural state. You can use herbs that have moisture in them, such as an aloe vera plant. Not the aloe vera gel you get from the drug store, but try to use the actual plant’s gel to apply as a mask to your face. You can also use oils like coconut oil and olive oil on your skin when you have a major drying problem in the winter.
Reduce How Much Makeup You Use
Finally, choose your makeup wisely. Stick to the makeup brands that don’t promote cruelty to animals and that provide only light coverage. Try to reduce how much makeup you use in general, including how often. If you want to wear makeup in the evening for a date night, try to go bare or close to it during the day. This will help your skin to hydrate properly and avoid unnecessary irritation.
