Ayurveda And Cosmetics

The concept of beauty and cosmetics is as old as human civilization. As ayurveda the concept of beauty has an age old origin. It is not possible to get away with the process of ageing and getting old but letting it not come very early with ayurveda and its medicinal herbs. According to ayurveda healthy skin is a result of overall health condition of individuals and prescribes numerous skin care treatment that needs to be pursued at every stage of life. Being a mirror, the barometer of an individual’s health, skin is the clue to one’s ayurvedic constitution. If the skin is not cared properly and neglected it suffers from premature ageing, becomes dull and blemished.

As in any holistic medicine, inner and outer radiance and aging are closely related. The more we nurture ourselves, the more radiant we become mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally, regardless of our particular body shape or proportions. Ayurveda emphasizes beauty as being a product of the four dimensions, physical, mental, spiritual and mental health with high importance given to self-knowledge, positive environment, development of positive routines and habits. Aging causes dryness and wrinkling of the skin. Factors like excessive thinking, stress, tension, over work, strain, irregular sleeping and eating habits and cold or dry foods enhance aging. Foods containing artificial flavors, colors, preservatives and chemicals also aggravate the Vata dosha and fasten aging.
