How To Nourish Your Skin
Chemical moisturisers are merely a band-aid solution. They solely affect the skin’s outer layer, momentarily moisturising it. This impact is short-lived, though. Even worse, the majority of synthetic moisturisers contain pore-clogging chemicals that stop the skin from properly performing its essential function of heat exchange. The issue should be dealt with permanently rather than just temporarily.
“In Ayurveda, the vata dosha is in control of the body’s overall health and intrinsic skin disorders. As a result, any imbalance will be noticeable on the skin’s surface, leading to dehydration and early symptoms of ageing. When paired with environmental factors such as climate and season, internal imbalances can have a visible influence on the skin,” says Prakash Singh VP R&D and Operations, Nature 4 Nature.
Singh shares some basic ayurvedic ingredients to keep the glow:
- Ghee and coconut oil – As we all know; ghee hydrates all skin types. Natural fats in ghee and coconut oil are absorbed by the skin.
- Aloe vera – A remedy for all seasons, it has repairing and moisturising properties, making it a perfect alternative for dry skin.
It is critical to maintain your health and keep well-hydrated. Drinking adequate water is always necessary for good skin, regardless of the season.
