Let’s take notes from Ayurveda to look as radiant as the festivities around us.

Skin Care: Follow These Tips For Healthy, Glowing Skin This Holiday Season

1. Deep detox

Pitta dosha is responsible for the thermal element in the body which governs digestion, hormones and metabolism. It is amla season. It keeps the skin young by stimulating the production of collagen. It also helps in removing dark spots and pigmentation. Amla is a natural detoxifier and balances the hormones that trigger acne.

Use 4 to 5 fresh amlas as an early morning juice, with a little honey and turmeric. You can use it daily until you have a steady supply of fresh amla.

2. Adapt a specific skin routine to the season

The air is no longer so humid. The moisturizer should be a bit heavier. The facial cleanser should be gentle and non-sulfated. Weekly massages can be wonderful for the skin to strengthen its immunity. Look for ingredients like saffron, sandalwood, gold, manjishtha, and lodhra in your skin care products. These herbs keep the skin glowing.

DIY – A paste made from powdered oats and fat-free sour buttermilk can be used as a skin cleanser and facial brightener.

You can also make a paste with crushed rose and lotus petals mixed with refreshing clays and fennel essential oil to rejuvenate tired skin.

3. Drink enough water

You should drink plenty of water during this season. Drinking enough water can help flush toxins from your body and give you glowing skin.

4. Self-love

Focus on self-love outside and inside during this season. Avoid chemical-laden makeup and choose wisely this holiday season. Inside, give your body plenty of healthy fats from nuts, almonds, ghee, and coconuts, instead of fried foods and refined oils.
