Skinny Dipping: Different ways to purge your skin

In order to have glowing, beautiful, healthy, and clean skin, we must take care of it from the inside out. However, due to several factors such as environment, diet, and stress levels running at high levels, our skin loses its luster and it becomes dull and ugly. Aside from nutritional, environmental, and physical factors that reflect your skin’s conditions, one cannot deny the fact that the body has more than enough doshas it can accumulate, thus losing the balance and affecting the body including the skin. In order to restore the proper balance in your skin, here are some tips to purge your skin of the harmful elements.

A word of advice, however: before you follow these treatments, you have to see your doctor first. Whether you’re paying premium to see a top-level physician or one of the many doctors within the scope of healthcare providers such as Aviva, you must consult first your ayurvedic sessions to your doctor.

1. Determine your skin type first
According to Ayurvedic medicine, there are three types of skin: vata means light, dry, and thin skin; pitta means rosy, moist, and medium thick skin; and kapha means cool, oily, and thick skin. Once you’ve determined your skin type, you can either buy skin care solutions from large disstributors such as Neutrogena or Juice Beauty if you are more inclined to use organic products. However, you can follow the next step if you want your skin treatment to be more personal and customized.

2. Feed your skin
Aside from its spiritual reasons, eating nutritious food can also help regenerate your skin cells, thus leading to healthy skin with a natural radiance. However, eating fruits, vegetables, lean meat, and less fatty food items is not enough. Ayurveda practicioners from all parts of the world believe that seating food with spices such as turmeric, coriander, fennel, and black pepper can rejuvenate your aging skin.

3. Sleep
Who doesn’t love sleep? Aside from letting the body rest and the mind recollects its thoughts, sleep also allows the body to repair and restructure your cells for better functioning. But in case you have problems sleeping due to insomnia or old habits, you can always drink a cup of chamomile tea before bedtime or enroll in a Transcendental Meditation class in your city. With better sleep, you will wake up with a vibrant skin as bright as the morning sun
