Ayurvedic beauty advice begins with diet and digestion. A balanced, fresh and healthy diet leads to a healthy and beautiful body. This seems like simple advice, but in the modern world it can be difficult to achieve, what with busy lifestyles, late nights, morning rush and no time to cook or enjoy a meal.
Today, processed foods form a large part of the diet. These foods generally contain a lot of fats, sugars and refined flours, which are very difficult to digest, and also have minimal nutritional value.A diet which consists of a lot of meat, alcohol, processed, frozen or fried foods, dairy products, white sugar and flour is very toxic to the system. According to Ayurveda, these types of foods produce ama (body toxins) that circulates in the body and creates disease. It can also causes bad breath, dull skin, dark circles under the eyes, acne, and limp, greasy hair.
Eating natural and fresh foods is the first step to gain natural beauty. These foods also provide you with a lot of energy, vitamins and minerals, and are low in fat. Ayurvedic nutrition is ideal for busy people, because it is so easy.
To begin with:
Eat mainly seasonal fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds and salads.
Drink herbal teas, milk, water (with honey, lemon or lime juice), fruit and vegetable juices.
