5 Ayurvedic skin care tips for winter

Winters can be too rough on us, especially on our skin. As soon as we approach winters, we start leaning towards the cold creams and lip balms, to mention the least, to protect our skin and maintain its radiant glow. The drop in temperatures during this season can cause dryness of skin and chapped lips. By resorting to natural methods of skincare, you can manage the excessive effects of winter on your skin and body. Ayurveda, being a treasure chest of solutions, has the essential herbs that can help you take care of your skin naturally during winters. If you wish to opt for a completely natural skincare winter routine, this blog is for you. 

Here are 5 key things you need to keep in mind, this winter, for maintaining healthy and glowing skin: 

  1. Keep a check on your diet: The condition of your skin is also a reflection of what you eat. As per Ayurveda, in this season, it is beneficial to have warm soups and warm spices like turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, etc., warm cereal or porridge with nuts and seeds. It is recommended to drink plenty of water and immunity-boosting tea made of tulsi, ginger, cinnamon, ajwain, turmeric, and honey. It is best to include healthy fats and omega 3 abundant foods in your diet like green leafy vegetables, nuts, and pure cow’s ghee.

Try to avoid fizzy drinks, caffeine, and cold dishes.

  1. Natural body butter and body lotions

Using natural ingredients for your skincare can further enrich your skin and can make it efficient to sustain the winters. Watch out for ingredients like almonds, jojoba, apricot, sesame in the products you choose as they can give you the necessary warmth and enhance your skin as well. 

  1. Regular Oil massage

Shiro Abhyanga is a head oil massage that is essential during winters. It keeps the scalp healthy and helps you get rid of headaches and greying of hair. It also helps you stay away from a flaky scalp. Additionally, it can brighten the skin of your face and make way for a sound sleep. 

  1. Foot oil massage

Regular massage of the feet helps restore the energy in the body. In Ayurveda, the practice of applying and rubbing oil over your feet before sleeping is recommended for a good sleep. Moreover, it deeply nourishes the skin around the foot area and makes it soft. 

  1. Stay active

Above all, stay active. Practice yogic stretching postures to avoid stiffness and improve blood circulation. Pranayam can help keep the lungs healthy and the skin pumped with fresh oxygen.
