Skin is the most extensive organ of the human anatomy. Thousands of people around the world spend thousands of dollars on cosmetic skin care products. Are we not hankering after that perfectly glowing skin of the poster girls and guys? Always. However, what lies hidden under plain sight is that applying makeup does not amount to internally healthy skin. The ancients had discovered long ago the natural ways to take care of our skin. Many of the skincare routine that we follow today dates back to the ancient civilizations (Cleopatra is known to have popularized ‘sugaring’ in her time). Yes you heard that right.
Skin care is related with each major organ of our body. Every deficiency in a particular organ peeps out in the form of skin rashes or abrasions or discoloration etc. Therefore, this post is going to take you to a holistic ride through skin care guide in order to ‘glow’ from inside that reflects outside. Here it goes:
- Befriend water as your magical solution: We’ve heard the benefits of water in skin care. However, driven by the lure of advertisements, we are constantly drawn towards chemical products for skin. Just drink plenty of water (lukewarm for better results) as per your physical composition and splash your face with the same at regular intervals to prevent dirt build up. See the difference for yourself and thank me later.
- Maintain a balanced diet: As much clichéd as it sounds, there is no alternative to a balanced diet rich in all sorts of vitamins and minerals. Our skin needs all the goodness of nature to make itself healthy. Include nuts and yogurt in your diet. Plain yogurt has multifarious benefits for our health, especially skin.
- Combine the benefits of Natural and Chemical ingredients to treat your skin: For acute problems like acne you might need the aid of chemicals like salicylic acid. Or in some severe case, chemical drugs. Other than that please replace all the chemical face scrub or face wash with natural ingredients. Have you ever tried the gram flour (Besan) and plain yogurt pack? Surely you are going to love it. There are book loads of similar recipes on natural skin care if you want more.
- Love yourself and lead a stress-free life: Yes, there is no alternative to leading a stress-free life in order to get a glowing skin (A secret that skin care companies will never tell you). Have you ever wondered why babies of all race and ethnicity have such a smooth and glowing skin? It is because they are absolutely stress-free. They love themselves and are attuned with nature. Hence the glow. Your happiness, will show up on your skin.
