But you don’t have to worry because Ayurveda has got your back! When it comes to hair and skin care, nothing works as good as natural Ayurvedic skin care recipes, and we have a few of them here for you. Let’s get started with beauty tips for hair and skin the doctors at Jiva Ayurveda recommend frequently.
Shikakai for Hair That Shines with Health
Shikakai is one of those secret hair treatment recipes that have been passed on to 2 centuries of using application. You must remember your grandmother applying a Brown paste on her hair once in a while. That could either be shikakai or mehndi depending on what you liked more! But shikakai is an Ayurvedic herb with many medicinal properties which are beneficial for the hair as well as the scalp. Applying this Brown paste on the hair before taking a bath ensures clean roots of the hair, as well as nourished hair follicles, and it also promoted good blood circulation on the scalp, which is necessary for good growth of hair. Today you can easily find shikakai paste, or shikakai oil from online stores, or you can also make it at home without lot of fuss.
Gudhal Paste For Strong Hair
China rose, also known as Gudhal in Ayurveda is a wonder herb for beautiful hair. If you take the flower, and make a paste of everything from the petals along with the green part from where it grows in a fine paste and apply it on your hair for 20 to 30 minutes it will make your hair strong and shiny. Nowadays, companies have started adding the essence of China rose in their hair care products, but applying the natural and unrefined form is one of the best beauty facts that no one will tell you about!
The Right Balance Of Water For Beautiful Skin
One of the most common skin care tips you will hear everywhere is that you must drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. But, no one will tell you that you must also shed water in the right way to keep your skin looking fresh and soft. The amount of water you consume eventually passes out of the body through the kidneys carrying a lot of toxins, which if it remains inside your body not only increases the risk of health problems, but also leads to skin problems . Therefore, it is not only important to stay hydrated by drinking a lot of water throughout the day, but also to sweat it out in a natural way so that the skin pores open up and release the toxins building up beneath the layer. The healthy and natural way to shed water is to practise yoga, or light exercise that makes your body sweat and release water through the skin pores making it easy for toxin removal as well. Make it a habit to workout for at least 20 to 25 minutes every morning and exfoliate your skin at least once a week with multani mitti, or Walnut scrub, or gram flour–whatever suits your skin type!
