A healthy glowing skin tops the wish list of most people, regardless of age. To attain such flawless skin, all you need to do is take care of your skin regularly. A luminous skin cannot be attained in a day or two, and persistence is the key here.
A beautiful glowing skin is also the result of good eating habits and lifestyle practices. Hence, a good skin care routine and the right foods and better life style practices are the keys to a healthy, nourished, glowing skin.
Lets first look at the skin care habits to achieve glowing skin.
When it comes to a skin care routine, indulge or invest in natural products. A good skin care routine must consist of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.
Cleansing helps remove all dirt and excess oil buildup on your skin. It is better to cleanse twice a day, once in the morning and at night before you hit the bed. Be sure not to over cleanse as it will strip off the natural oils of the skin. Instead of using sulfates and parabens on your face, try using natural cleansers like raw milk and rose water. Note to use rose water of high purity like the ones available at Shesha Ayurveda. Before cleansing, remember to wash your hands thoroughly; you don’t want the bacterial build up of your hands to your face.
The dead skin cells are found in the dermal layer, and this build up leads to dull skin. It is necessary to exfoliate at least once a week to remove these dead cells. You can use a herbal face wash powder like Tejaswini face wash powder if you wish to go all natural.
Toning also removes dirt in addition to restoring the pH of the skin, control acne. You can use rose water and mogra water as a toner to gently tone your skin. Good quality rose water and mogra water is available at Shesha Ayurveda.
Moisturize your skin
Moisturizing your skin twice a day is necessary to hydrate the skin. You can use many different moisturizers, but its best to go natural. Extra virgin coconut oil is a good moisturizer for your skin. To remove blemishes and suntan, you can opt for Nalpamaradi thailam or Eladi thailam. Also, you can introduce Kumkumadi thailam as part of your night care routine. This not only moisturizes your skin but all treats all skin issues and provides a glow to your skin.
Make sure to include cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing part of your skin care. Along with this, use face packs alternatively to remove the dullness of your skin. Homemade or face packs with natural ingredients are the best. We recommend trying Kumkumadi Suvarna ubtan, Musk Tumeric pack, Kasturi Manjal face pack from Shesha Ayurveda.
Along with the products you use on your skin, you should also practice,
Mindful eating: Try including skin friendly fruits and vegetables like Avocado, spinach, carrots, and tomatoes.
Stay hydrated: The skin needs an adequate amount of water to stay hydrated. Be sure to provide the skin with the same.
Adequate sleep: Try to get the required amount of sleep. Lack of sleep shows up as puffy eyes and dark circles. A sound sleep promotes collagen production.
Exercise: Sweating is very much essential for skin health. It flushes out the toxins giving you not only a healthy body but also a glowing skin.
Practice facial massage: Massaging gently on the face. Massing gently improves blood circulation.
Each individual and their skin are different. Choose the ingredients/products carefully, the one that suits your skin. Following these tips results in a healthy glowing skin.
