Body purification is reflected in the appearance of the skin. Purification involves a number of principles of a healthy diet, additional nutritional and detoxification,which will make their effects felt in the quality of the skin.
In addition to the option for a healthy lifestyle, we need to carefully clean our skin once or twice a day to remove local toxins, which block its pores and predispose us to infections.
In general it is good to avoid soaps containing aggressive detergents and use natural cleaners. Ayurveda Indian medicine recommends the use of vegetable cleansing powders, which remove stresses toxins and excessive oils, while restoring and balancing acids and bases.
Recipe for body purification
A mixed formula, which we can prepare in the house, includes equal parts of dried chickpea flour, nutmeg, lemon peel and ground coriander. Use about a teaspoon of water to make a paste and apply gently to the wet face. When it starts to dry, rinse to remove it. We can use this recipe to cleanse the whole body, increasing the amount of ingredients.
If we want to try a cleaning with traditional Ayurvedic plants, we can try sandalwood powder. Their basic principle on cleaning products is not to use for the skin anything you would not trust to put in your stomach.
Steam treatments with fresh herbs are useful in opening blocked pores and eliminating toxins. Once a week, it is good to treat our own face with steam bath, in which we add a few drops of essential oil. Lavender, juniper, rosemary,bergamot or sage, all have purifying effects, beneficial to our body.
Revitalization and feeding
Revitalization of the skin is necessary to delay the appearance of wrinkles. Stimulating collagen fibers that support the skin can improve its color and appearance. Many skin care products contain natural acids that stimulate cells to produce collagen, such as glycolic acid, azecacid acid and lactic acid.
Skin care products containing these acids in a higher concentration, will lead to some extent to descuamare and it is necessary to use them under the guidance of a good skin care specialist.
At home, we can prepare our own treatments for revitalization with natural products. Yogurt, lemon juice and grapefruit juice can have a stimulating, gentle effect. Fresh yogurt can be applied directly to the skin and left five minutes before washing. Another recipe is, let’s combine lemon juice or grapefruit with an equal share of aloe vera juice. We apply it to the skin for two minutes, then rinse.
After purification and revitalization, the skin needs to be nourished. We can use vegetable or hazelnutoil, to which we add a few drops of flower oils or plants. A mixture of almond oil, jojoba, avocado or sunflower, with essential oils of rose, lavender, sandalwood, jasmine, geranium or lemon, we can apply them by gently massaging the skin until it is naturally absorbed.
It is good to always use protection from the sun’s rays. Ultraviolet radiation leads to collagendamage, wrinkles and skin cancer. Prevention is better than treating, so, we need to be aware of the possible harmful effects of the sun on the skin.
Skin protection is especially important, especially as the weather gets warmer and our skin suffers. This also applies to those who live or go on holidays in mountain areas at higher altitudes. It is good to teach children to protect themselves against solar radiation, to prevent skin problems, which can affect them later.
