The Health Total Skin Care Plan
As per Ayurveda, there are two main causes of skin diseases in humans – wrong diet and lifestyle, which an individual follows either knowingly or unknowingly. Following a diet or lifestyle that is against the prakriti (nature) of a person, creates an imbalance in the body.
Skin diseases occur due to imbalances in all the three doshas, the prime dosha is pitta, which symbolises heat or fire. Allergies, on the other hand, are a result of over exposure to hot conditions, genetic disorders, mental stress and fatigue. Herbs like Chandan (sandalwood), Amla, Aloe Vera and Turmeric help remove toxins from the body.
Health Total food plan includes antioxidants, Omega-3 fatty acids and high-fibre foods –
- Natural sources of Vitamin C like guava, oranges, capsicums, cabbage, grape fruit, sour lime and papaya
- Omega-3 fatty acids like salmon, flaxseed oil and walnuts are some of the best foods for healthy skin
- Fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants like broccoli, spinach, carrots and strawberries
- High-fibre foods like whole grains, brown rice, nuts and seeds
- B-vitamin supplements
Types of Skin & Skin Care Tips
Whether you have dry, oily or sensitive skin, it is important to take care of it. Dry skin is the worst one to deal with as people tend to develop wrinkles at an early age, mainly due to changing lifestyle and climatic conditions.
- Drinking adequate water is one of the excellent home remedies for dry skin
- Apply a few drops of honey to your face and leave it for a while. Within a few weeks, you may find a great difference in your skin’s condition
- Before going to the bed, drink a glass of warm milk by adding a few drops of almond oil to it. It gives a baby soft skin
- Oils like coconut, olive, sesame or avocado give great results for skin. Gently massage with any of these oils to remove all dryness and keep it moisturised
The ones with oily skin usually have enlarged pores, blackheads and whiteheads. They also frequently experience pimples due to oil secretion from the skin. Another problem that many teenage girls and women face during summers is the oily secretion from t-zone.
The central parts of a person’s face which includes the forehead, nose and chin, comprise a T-zone. The t-zone secretes more oil than the rest of your face and can make it appear oily and unpleasant. People with oily and combination skin usually face a tougher time trying to keep this t-zone oil free.
Remedies – for oily skin care:
- Exfoliate with yogurt – either apply plain yogurt on face and wash it after some time with cold water; or apply it in the form of buttermilk
- Prepare a mixture of milk, sandalwood oil and massage your face for a few minutes. Leave this mixture on your face overnight and then wash it with warm water in the morning
- Rub mango pulp on face
- Hot water steam helps in getting rid of the dirt
- Apply egg white and leave it for 15 to 20 minutes. Later, wash it with warm water
- Massage some aloe vera gel from leaf to your t-zone to control excess oil secretion
Simple, Reliable Tips for Healthy Skin
As the season changes, the skin undergoes various transitions for which you must take extra care. Here are some simple and reliable tips –
If the skin feels tight or there is excess sweating and body odour, it’s time to keep it hydrated. The best skin care tip is to use a moisturizer high in hyaluronic acid. Also, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
Whether you are stepping out in the sun for two minutes or two hours in a day, don’t forget to apply an SPF sunscreen lotion. UVA and UVB rays are harmful and can cause premature aging, sunburn, tanning and sun damage. Use an SPF of 15 or more because it works as one of the best home remedies for glowing skin.
Make changes to your daily regime by cleansing your face twice a day for 1-2 minutes. Use a gentle exfoliator to scrub and peel off the dead cells on the surface of the skin. Cleaning the pores reveals healthy and glowing skin.
Don’t forget the neck
To beat the summer heat, people tend to wear loose and comfortable cotton clothes, which show more skin. The neck and chest are among the most exposed regions of the body, so they require extra attention. Covering your neck with a scarf not only protects it from the harsh sunrays, but also adds to your style statement.
Detoxify & rejuvenate
Packed with the antioxidants, vegetable juices nourish the body. Drink a glass of mixed vegetable juice consisting of carrots, cucumber and beetroots or fruit juice comprising oranges and sweet limes daily. They provide the body with Vitamin A and C and bioflavinoids, which help fight free radicals and prevent cellular damage. Beetroot juice acts as a good liver cleanser.
Always remember that what you eat reflects on your face. It requires the right kind of fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, which take time to reach the skin when we change diet. So, don’t expect a miracle immediately. Some common skin problems are –
Acne: The exact cause of acne is not known but androgens, an oily skin and heredity play a big role. Psychological stress may also cause acne. Whiteheads are a type of acne that appear as small, white bumps on the skin’s surface.
Skin rash: Reactions occur due to food allergy, cosmetics, insect bites, sun, drugs, jewellery, fragrances, stress and tight-fitting clothes. When it comes to rashes, you must try home remedies for face to eliminate it as quickly as possible.
Pigmentation: This affects the colour of the skin, causing dark or light patches. Pigmentation is caused due to sun exposure, hereditary and allergic reactions. The market is full of anti-wrinkle treatments, pigmentation creams and supplements. Sometimes, these don’t suit everyone, so it’s best to try home remedies for skin.
Heat boils: If you frequently get heat boils, start using an antiseptic soap. Also, hot compression is one of the primary home remedies for heat boils. Around 15 minutes of hot compress for 4 to 5 times in a day helps the body fight the infection and encourages quick removal of pus.
Eczema: Eczema is a characterised by inflammation that appears on the elbows, knees, face and waists. It usually itches, then burns and cracks and is an inherited condition. So, identify the allergic foods and avoid them. The common ones are eggs, soya beans, peanuts, wheat, oats, chocolates and dairy products.
Psoriasis: It is an inflammatory disease characterised by thickened patches of red, dry, scaly skin accompanied by pain and itching. Tiny silvery pinkish flakes appear around the knees, legs, elbows, scalp, belly button and buttocks, giving the skin a dry, scaly, fish-like look.
Causes of Skin Problems
One big cause, which often goes unnoticed, is smoking. You knew of the hazards of smoking, but it is also responsible for making your skin sag and for increasing wrinkles by using up the vitamin C in the body. Studies have found that a smoker’s skin tends to be up to 40% thinner than a non-smoker’s.
Cigarette smoke contains chemicals that get absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood, causing further deprivation of oxygen and build-up of toxins. Smoking also increases the load of free radicals in the body, which suppresses the immune system. No amount of expensive make-up, acne treatment or wrinkle treatment can reverse the damages done by smoking. So, quit now!
Other factors include –
- Stress and lack of sleep
- Sleeping with make-up on and trying new cosmetics
- Excessive coffee
- Popping pimples
- Long, hot showers
- PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease)
Your skin is not only a mirror of what you eat, but also how you feel. When your mind is unsteady and stressed, your skin will look dull and listless. And when you are happy and relaxed your skin will reflect the radiant glow. Therefore, keep smiling. A smiling face is a beautiful face!
