Ayurvedic tips to keep skin problems away!

ayruHow to keep skin problems away!Avoid spicy and oily food: To keep your skin healthy

in the monsoon season, avoid spicy, oily and sour foods. The high humidity levels cause

the digestive system to weaken and heavy food can lead to an upset stomach. These types

of food also aggravate pitta, which is responsible for a variety of skin breakouts and

eruptions in this season. Eat light and easily digestible foods, cooked or steamed

vegetables, zucchini, squash, pumpkin, steamed salad, fruits, moong dal, khichree, corn,

chickpea flour, and oatmeal etc.Say no to pitta aggravating beverages: We understand

that you can’t begin your day without a cuppa but try to reduce your daily intake. Coffee

and alcohol is a strict no because it is notoriously known for aggravating pitta and

acidity. Replace them with pitta pacifying herbal teas.Keep your skin dry: Getting a little

wet or sometimes getting drenched is not uncommon when you are outdoors during the

rainy season. However, don’t let your skin remain wet for a long time while enjoying the

monsoon showers. It is important to keep your skin folds and feet dry and clean at all

times. Damp skin is a breeding ground for fungal infections.Wheat grass, a tonic for your

skin: Wheatgrass is a tonic for your skin. It is helpful in boosting the immune system and

helping you in warding off or controlling skin disorders in monsoon. A healthy immune

system is reflected in a healthy and glowing skin. Wheatgrass is rich in antioxidants and

is instrumental in detoxifying the blood.Drink a lot of fluids: No, we are not talking about

the one that gets you tipsy! Drink at least 8-10 glasses of clean water daily. Though you

need to keep dry outside in this season to prevent skin problems it is important to

consume adequate quantities of water to keep your skin hydrated.Eat fresh: Eat fresh and

unprocessed food to keep your body and your skin functioning at an optimum level.

Don’t rely on packed, refrigerated and processed food. Instead of ordering pizzas, burgers

or feasting on chips, relish some fresh homemade food. Eat a lot of fruits and green

vegetables.Avoid alcohol-based skin cleansers: You should avoid alcohol-based skin

cleansers because it irritates and dries your skin. Instead use a herbal soap or cleanser

regularly to get rid of excess oil, grime and dust, and of course to keep you skin free of

bacterial infections.Use cooling herbs: It is beneficial to use the herbs that have cooling

effects on the body (pitta pacifying) such as fennel, coriander seeds and Indian

gooseberry (amla) for a glowing skin in monsoon. Amla helps to detoxify the liver and

aids digestion – and is also a good source of Vitamin C and other minerals. One of the

benefits of taking it regularly is a flawless complexion.-Internet
