7 Simple Ayurvedic Beauty Tips for Your Face February 10, 2017

Glowing skin not only enhances our self-confidence but is also an indicator of our health. Though the market is flooded with products that claim to address every skin problem, majority of these are loaded with chemicals which are not good for our skin in the long run. With prolonged use, early signs of ageing may set in.

Mother Nature has in its store some of the best solutions for all kinds of beauty-related issues. All we need to do is tap into nature’s immense potential to keep our skin beautiful all round the year as well as prevent premature ageing. Ayurveda, our very own science of medicine, hailing from ancient times, is a storehouse of a number of herbal remedies which can naturally enhance the beauty of our skin, preventing and doing away with several common skin concerns such as pimples, acne, spots, dark circles, scars, wrinkles etc. Although inexpensive, the effectiveness of Ayurvedic remedies is immense.

Let us look at some simple Ayurvedic beauty tips for face which can help you acquire naturally glowing, problem-free skin:

Ayurvedic Beauty Tips for Face:

To cleanse the skin and pores: Raw Milk

One of the known basic ayurvedic tips for face glow is using raw milk. Raw milk helps remove unseen dirt and impurities from the face as well as the pores of the skin. It also adds a subtle glow and acts as a natural moisturizer. Use raw milk with a cotton ball to gently cleanse your skin. You may even mix a little lemon juice with raw milk for this purpose.

Applying fresh orange juice to your face on a daily basis will help bring about an improvement in the texture of your skin as well as the skin tone. This fruit is rich in Vitamin C which enables our body to fight ageing and it also acts as a good skin toner, especially for oily skin.

To control acne:

Pack 1: Sandalwood and turmeric

Aloe Vera is one of the wonders of Nature that has a number of skin and health benefits. Break open a leaf, take out the fresh gel, apply on your face and massage in. Once dry, wash off with lukewarm water. Aloe Vera cannot exactly cure acne but it has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, thus helping to reduce the swelling and redness of pimples and acne. Noticeable results can be seen in a week’s time. Moreover, drinking Aloe Vera juice can enhance the vitality of the skin and also be useful in case of stomach ailments.

    Hi Vijaya, unwanted hairs on the face can be very embarrassing, however there are several natural remedies to get rid of them.
    1. Turmeric and milk – Take one tablespoon of turmeric and milk and mix them in a bowl. Once the mixture is prepared, apply it gently to your face using your fingers.Wait till it dries after which you can rub it off your skin. Wash off with cold water.
    2. Egg whites – Take one egg white and mix it with some corn flour and sugar. Whisk the mix until it forms a sticky paste. Now apply on face. Let it dry for around 30 minutes before peeling it off.

  • aruna

    Hi… thanks for ur tips…. my hair is very dry and more frizzy, thin hair…what to do..

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Aruna, dry and frizzy hair require regular moisturizing of hair. One of the way is the application of almond oil and egg mask. Almond oil acts as a natural hair moisturizer, while the egg proteins repair the hair strands. Mix 1/4th cup of almond oil with one raw egg and blend it well to form a smooth paste. Apply this on hair and scalp, and wait 40 minutes before washing hair. Rinse hair as usual with clean water.

    Hi Meghana, to reduce hair fall you will need to know the reason behind it. It can be caused by hormonal imbalance, stress, incorrect hair products, dandruff or just happening as your hair is going through a natural shedding phase. The problem can be fixed by taking proper care and nourishing hair. Be healthy from inside for healthy skin and hair. Eating healthy, include legumes, fruits and vegetables, cut down on junk food and drink plenty of water. Application of raw onion juice or aloe vera gel on the scalp, twice in a week regularly for a couple of months too helps to control hair fall.

  • firdouse

    Pls tell me how to use glycerine and rosewater on my face

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Dear Firdouse, rosewater and glycerin mixture is an excellent toner. It helps to balance and keep your skin well nourished. Use it after washing your face. The mixture is available anywhere at drugstores. You could also make your own rose water and glycerin mix at home. Keep it in a spray bottle and just spray it anytime during the day when your skin feels dry. It gives your skin a healthy glow and dewy look. To make your own rosewater and glycerin toner: simply, mix 1 1/2 cups of rose water and 1/4th cup of glycerin. Pour in a spray bottle. Shake well before use. As a precaution, spray on your wrist before using it on your face. If you get any kind of irritation avoid using it.
