The skin is the barrier between the environment and good health. A healthy skin is well hydrated, supple, almost wrinkle free, supple, blemish free and glowing. Dry, flaky, damaged skin in the wicket gate for bacteria and germs to enter the body and create havoc.
Since times memorable, skin care has always been a priority for women. Queen Cleopatra ‘s beauty secret as believed is that she bathed in donkey’s milk, applied various natural herbs and plant extracts for that remarkable skin.
In our hectic life today, we really cannot afford to maintain donkeys for the mill and prepare the plant extracts at home. The closest option for us is to buy pure, Ayurvedic products for skin care that are manufactured by genuine manufacturers using pure, natural ingredients and processing the formulations by traditional methods.
The steps to a beautiful skin all year round are:
Cleanse– use ubtans (the soap free, natural cleanser) to cleanse the skin. When we use chemicals to cleanse the skin, it upsets the skin pH balance, making it dry. To balance that dryness we use chemical loaded moisturizers.
An Ubtan or skin scrub is a paste made from herb extracts and mixed with coarsely ground legumes. Ubtan is applied in a circular motion to gently exfoliate the skin, unclog pores and improve blood and lymphatic circulation.
Nourish and Moisturize– use natural oils to moisturize and nourish the skin. Oils like Kumkumadi does wonders for the facial skin.
Body massage oils make the skin smooth and soft. Detox oils prevent deposits of cellulite, increase the blood circulation and detoxify, while some massage oils are known to relax the mind and soothe the sense.
Facial oils rejuvenate the skin cells and improve elasticity, giving a natural radiance to the skin when used regularly.
Along with this skin care routine, it is necessary to balance your lifestyle that includes a balanced diet that is healthy and wholesome. Regular exercise that promotes sweating should be done at least five times a week.
Stick to an almost regular sleep routine. Sleep is known to produce more collagen and other hormones that help to keep the skin firm.
