Who does not want a flawless, glowing skin? The skin is the largest organ in the human body and the fastest growing too. It took me years to understand that just a topical application cannot give me a flawless skin for a lifetime. A holistic approach towards skin care is the secret of a healthy, youthful, flawless skin.
A little bit of information about our skin makes it easier for us to choose a skin care regime. Our skin is made up of three layers and each layer has specific functions:
Epidermis: production of new cells, it gives color to our skin and helps to protect the body
Dermis: sweat glands, nerve endings, hair follicles, oil pocket and blood vessels
Subcutaneous fat: attaches bones, muscles to skin, control body temperature, stores fat pads to protect the body from a fall
Use of chemical cosmetics and a haphazard lifestyle is very harmful for the skin and overall health. The chemicals are known to be carcinogenic as well as the effect of the cosmetics is just superficial and temporary followed by terrible side effects. It is time to switch to a holistic approach for skin care along with the use of natural, herbal, Ayurvedic skin care products.
Tips for holistic skin care
Read the label on the product that you plan to use. Choose products that contain only natural, herbal ingredients and are made by the traditional Ayurvedic method of preparation
Cleanse and moisturize daily with natural or fresh skin cosmetic products twice a day
Apply natural facial oils like Kumkumadi facial oil to reduce signs of aging
Use gentle scrubs to exfoliate the skin as over exfoliation makes the skin glow then, but it damages the skin by disrupting the pH balance
Do not touch your skin if not required as fingers transmit bacteria and oil
Do not pick blemishes, but treat them with Ayurvedic skin products
Protect your skin from the sun with natural herbs and mineral based sunblocks
Keep yourself well hydrated
Have more (safe) sex as it improves blood circulation and gives a magical glow to the skin
You must get at least 7 hours of undisturbed sleep to keep your complexion fresh looking
A wholesome diet with exercise is beneficial for the skin
