Craving that natural blush and peachy glow? But haven’t found the right hack? We have got you covered!

The magic of Ayurveda has proven time and again over the years that simple ingredients found in our kitchen can create wonders for our overall health, especially our skin and hair. Forget expensive cosmetics laden with chemical compounds and complex routines, the answer to younger looking, glowing skin lies in the simplest ingredients and spices. Growing up in an Indian household, you must have always seen your grandmother apply a paste made out of turmeric and milk or gram flour. These age-old skincare routines are the best holistic alternatives to battle the growing problems of acne, age lines, rough and dry skin or tan.

Beauty in Ayurveda is not about the exterior, physical appearance, but about wellness from within, with our mental, physical and spiritual health being in perfect harmony. Ayurveda considers skincare as an integral part of overall well-being, recognizing the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit. Ayurvedic skincare practices often involve not only external treatments but also lifestyle adjustments, dietary changes, and stress management techniques. By adopting Ayurvedic skincare ingredients, you can embrace a more holistic approach to beauty that addresses underlying imbalances and promotes overall health and vitality.

Ayurvedic Insight Into The 7 Layers Of Skin

In Ayurveda, the skin is considered the outermost covering of the body and is composed of seven layers. These layers are described in classical Ayurvedic texts like Charaka Samhita and Sushruta Samhita. Let us understand the function and importance of each layer.

Avabhasini– The visible layer of skin that acts as a protective barrier.
Lohita– Contains blood vessels, sweat glands & hair follicles.
Shweta– A layer of fat and connective tissue that provides insulation and cushioning.
Tamra– Responsible for the movement and functioning of the skin.
Vedini– Contains nerve endings & is responsible for perception of touch, temperature & pain.
Rohini– Represents the skin’s growth and regenerative capacity.
Mansadhara– Responsible for supporting the skin by providing structure.
