Healthy glowing skin

Ayurveda outlines many simple natural ways to maintain healthy and glowing skin. The vital force of the body, which is called Ojas is responsible for glow and luster, is depleted by the modern lifestyle we lead. Lack of proper exercise, pollution & irregular eating habits all contribute towards weakening of our energy.

Skin is built of collagen, and as we age the collagen breaks down because of oxidation (that’s how butter goes rancid, rust forms, etc.). Molecules called “free radicals” are launched into our body by pollution and excessive sun rays. Free radicals cause oxidation. Skin contains rich stores of antioxidants because it is your body’s first line of defense against free radicals. As we age, however, the accumulation of environmental exposure to free radicals, plus the internal oxidation and breakdown of collagen, can cause skin to lose its tone and glow.

Water and sunscreen are two powerful tools you can use to fight premature aging of skin. Water helps hydrate the skin, giving collagen a surge of moisture. Sunscreen is essential for fighting off the sun’s ultraviolet rays that contribute to loss of elasticity and tone—the fairer you are, the higher your SPF should be

During your early age your skin should look its best. In your 30's you may begin to see the appearance of fine lines. These changes can be minimized by properly caring of your skin.
