Ayurveda dates back over 5,000 years and is an ancient Hindu practice. Through diet and the use of natural herbs, the traditional, holistic concept strives to balance the mind and body. The key is to promote your health and wellness. The ultimate form of self-care, it is, quite simply, what this year is all about.
Since clean and conscious cosmetics are on the rise – not to mention meditation and mindfulness – it was only a matter of time before beauty experts entwined Ayurvedic practices with beauty and realized just how seamlessly they function together. Modern people are curious about what they put in their bodies and, in similar ways, what they put on them. Ayurveda is being used as an inspiration for brands’ latest skin care collections more than ever before. In light of this new ritualistic trend, it’s essential to use wholesome, healthy ingredients, ethical practices, as well as products that promote ethical behaviors. You can count on us when it comes to that.
Ayurveda: what is it?
Sanskrit words Ayur and Veda mean ‘life’ and ‘science’, respectively, in the word Ayurveda. The science of life, as a whole, is a way of living, but more importantly, it is the science of life.
Creating a balanced and harmonious life is the goal of Ayurvedic living. A good way to recharge your batteries is to go to bed by 10pm. In order to be healthy, happy, and wealthy, you have to eat fresh, organic food, meditate, feed your mind, let go of toxic thoughts, and live in harmony with your mind and body.
In Ayurveda, doshas or qualities are believed to be unique to each individual. In order to lead a fruitful and sustainable life, we need to live by our dosha to determine our particular needs.
The three doshas of Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (earth) are distinguished by their characteristics. As an example, Kapha types frequently have wavy hair, oily skin, and are affectionate and compassionate. In contrast, Pitta is a passionate, intelligent woman with fine hair and a sensitive nature. Despite dry hair and skin, Vata is still vibrant and creative despite her worrisome nature. There’s a good chance you are a combination of all three or you may only be two, but, more often than not, one will feel like you more than the others.
Your ayurvedic life can be enhanced by knowing which Dosha you are and adjusting your eating, sleeping, and beauty habits accordingly.
What is its connection to beauty?
The great benefits of Ayurvedic living (i.e. happier, healthier, calmer, yet more energised states of mind and wellbeing). By using less toxic and harsh ingredients, beauty brands are realizing that their products are good for both the skin and the mind. Organic essential oils, botanical actives, peptides, and plant extracts, combined with non-poison-based skin care, allow your skin to break free from chemical-based products and become the very best version of itself.
For more Ayurvedic shopping, opt for the products that best suit your particular dosha, such as Urban Veda, for example.
