5 Ways to have a Healthy Skin according to Ayurveda

Ayurveda, which is comprised of the words “Ayur,” meaning “life,” and “Veda,” meaning “knowledge,” is known as the science of life. It touches upon all of the myriad aspects of life that make it as full and rich as it is. This system of medicine has some time-proven tips that will make your skin healthier in a natural way, and here we share 5:

1. Keep exercising

When you exercise, you sweat out toxins. Not only that, exercising will improve your blood circulation, digestion, keep your muscles and joints healthy and toned. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keep them vital. Choose the type of exercise that makes you feel good, whether it is yoga, pilates, running, dancing, boxing – enjoy it and have fun moving your body.

2. Be careful with food combinations

According to Ayurveda, not everything goes go together. Some foods are incompatible food combinations and affect the digestive process, and digestion is not something that happens in the stomach only. Since skin is the largest organ of the body, when we don’t digest our food properly this is also reflected in the quality of our skin. In Ayurveda, we focus on avoiding food combinations such as milk with fruits, meat, salt, vegetables or honey.

3. Sleep and wake up early

According to Ayurveda, the three pillars of health are Aahar (food), Bramhacharya (good physical/sexual conduct), and Nidra (sleep). The body actually heals itself as we sleep at night, ideally by 10 p.m. Missing the ideal time for sleep and oversleeping shows up adversely on our skin.

4. Be careful with sunbathing

Excess sun exposure will damage your skin, no matter how much sunscreen you put on it.

5. Don’t forget to stay hydrated on the outside

Cleansing and moisturizing are the most crucial to keeping your skin healthy and young. It is possible to not only have healthy, but glowing skin which radiates from the inside-out. To stimulate healthy blood circulation, lymph drainage and reduce water retention give yourself a weekly full body massage with natural and organic oil. An oil massage is the best remedy for dry skin, and for the best absorption, they should be done at night.
