Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Natalie Portman are just some of the celebrities who have adopted the Eastern philosophy of Ayurveda. An Ayurvedic approach to life can teach us how to live in tune with nature and be rewarded with a healthy happy body mind and spirit, and counteract the stressful wear and tear of everyday life. Using beauty products that have those same Ayurvedic principles can help you achieve healthy, glowing skin, naturally.
Felicity Potter of Ayurda Australia has provided her tips below to looking your best self yet:
Cleanse twice daily with a cleanser that is right for your skin type and personal constitution. Ayurvedic cleansers with all natural and wild crafted ingredients will keep your PH levels balanced while it purifies your skin and maintains the moisture balance.
Dry Body Brushing
To help shed dead skin cells and encourage cell renewal, try dry body brushing. It will leave your skin smoother and brighter. Dry skin brushing rejuvenates the nervous system by stimulating nerve endings in the skin, helps with muscle tone and an assists with the even distribution of fat deposits. Brushing your skin eliminates clogged pores, allowing your skin to better absorb nutrients.
Start your day with an Ayurvedic oil massage (abhyanga), a traditional way to eliminate stress and relax the body while increasing lustre and skin tone. Massage not only keeps your skin silky-smooth, it also tones muscles, calms nerves, aids in circulation and releases deeply embedded toxins.
Incorporate a face mask into your beauty routine twice per week. This will aid in the defence of damaging conditions such as dust, heat, cold and ultraviolet rays. Face masks are particularly helpful at this time of year to put the moisture back into skin following a dry and cold winter, leaving your face glowing for the warmer months!
Live in tune with nature. Make the effort to rise a little earlier and make use of the extra time by stretching and taking a few deep breaths. This will bring prana into your cells and help to flush any toxins from your skin while also gently increasing the blood supply to bring extra nourishment to your skin.
