21 Effective Ayurvedic Beauty Tips For Glowing Skin

Between household chores, the daily commute to the office and back home, and the stress of walking on the tightrope called life, you hardly find time to pamper yourself. Enter Ayurveda – the science (and art) of living inspired by nature’s essence. Ayurveda is not just about herbal remedies. It is a way of life. It is about embracing lifestyle habits that will turn you into the most beautiful version of you. Here are a few time-tested purifying habits and ayurvedic beauty tips that you can include in your skin care routine.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Tips For Glowing Skin

1. Early To Bed And Early To Rise

Early To Bed And Early To Rise - Ayurvedic Beauty Tips
Apart from making you healthy and wise, this practice protects your beauty. Having too many late nights and not getting enough sleep increases the number of inflammatory cells in your body that worsen and trigger skin issues, such as acne and dermatitis. Moreover, they make the skin hydration system go haywire, causing your skin to become dry and age quickly. You need to follow a proper routine to make your skin feel rejuvenated.

2. Do Not Mix Incompatible Foods

Food is medicine. But it can turn into poison when taken in the wrong combination. Avoid these incompatible food items to take care of your skin and health:

  • Milk And Fruit: Yes. Even if you love your bowl of yogurt mixed with fruits, avoid it. Fruits are digested quickly, and milk takes time to digest. So, during the processing time, the fruit curdles the milk and creates acidity.
  • Milk And Meat: Avoid consuming milk products (including desserts) if you have fish and meat. Fish heats up your body while milk cools it down. Combining these contrasting foods obstructs the vital body channels.
  • Cold Drinks After A Meal: Avoid having iced or cold drinks after meals. This is because cold suppresses the digestive juices and causes stomach issues. This is also applicable for frozen yogurt and ice cream after (or before) meals.
  • Ghee And Honey: Both produce opposite reactions in your body. While ghee cools down your body, honey heats it up, and this can cause imbalance.

3. Drink Tea

Drink Tea - Ayurvedic Beauty Tips

Keeping yourself hydrated throughout the day is important. Drink water and also sip herbal tea in between. Make tea using herbs like chamomile, ginger, or lemon and have it in the afternoon to keep your digestion healthy. And a healthy digestive system is crucial for glowing skin.

4. Consume Vegetables With High Water Content

Vegetables high in water content can be digested easily. Vegetables such as carrot, radishes, lettuce, asparagus and fennel tips, and cucumber are beneficial for all skin types. These are revered as purifiers. Cook them or dice them and make a salad. Always combine at least 3-5 vegetables in any form to keep your skin healthy.

5. Exercise

Exercise - Ayurvedic Beauty Tips

Not only is it good for your heart and lungs, but it is also key to beautiful and glowing skin. Exercise boosts blood circulation, and this, in turn, nourishes your skin cells and flushes out the harmful free radicals and toxins. This makes your skin glow from within.

6. Do Breathing Exercises

More than physical stress, mental stress can take a toll on skin health. Controlled breathing exercises are a great way to kick away stress and calm your mind. Before you go to sleep, do a simple breathing exercise. Inhale and fill your belly with air. Then, let it rise. Fill your lungs and then exhale slowly in the opposite order. Follow this for 5 to 20 minutes before you sleep or during any time of the day.

7. Meditate

Meditate - Ayurvedic Beauty Tips

You must be wondering how this can make your skin beautiful and glowing. Well, meditation helps in calming down your mind. When your mind is at rest, the positive energy or “chi” flows through your body, flooding your cells with vital energies. This not just reduce stress but also rejuvenates your skin.

8. Moisturize Your Skin

Keeping your skin moisturized and hydrated is crucial. Apart from drinking enough water, indulge in oil massages. Oil massage or Abhyanga is a vital part of the Ayurvedic skin care routine. Massaging your skin with herbal oils not only relaxes your muscles and tissues but also boosts blood flow. It also keeps dry skin at bay. For best results, massage your skin with oil just before hitting the bed so that it gets enough time to rejuvenate itself and soak in the goodness of the oil. You may try self-massage or visit a spa for oil massage.

9. Consume Seeds And Nuts

Consume Seeds And Nuts - Ayurvedic Beauty Tips
Seeds and nuts are not just for birds. In fact, adding them to your regular diet keeps your skin healthy. They contain healthy fats that are good for your cardiovascular system as well as your skin. They also contain omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Consume sunflower seeds, almonds, pistachios, and flax seeds regularly for glowing skin.

10. Cut Down On Your Sugar And Salt Intake

High salt intake affects your blood pressure levels, and this, in turn, increases your risk of cardiovascular disease. Also, excess sugar and salt damage the collagen and elastin in your skin. These two compounds keep your skin elastic, toned, and wrinkle-free.

11. Protect Your Skin From Excessive Sun Exposure

Protect Your Skin From Sun - Ayurvedic Beauty Tips

Too much of anything is bad for you. While a bit of sun exposure is a necessity for giving your skin the daily dose of vitamin D, excessive exposure can harm it. The UV rays can cause tanning, sunburn, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. Whenever you go out, don’t forget to apply sunscreen. Use an umbrella, a hat, or a scarf to protect your skin.


Saffron or kesar is among the most expensive spices in the world. It is a time-tested spice that nurtures your skin and keeps it radiant and blemish-free. 

What You Need
  • A pinch of saffron strands
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
  1. Soak the saffron strands in milk. Leave it on overnight.
  2. The next day, mix it well with the aloe vera gel.
  3. Apply it to your face and let it stay for half an hour.
  4. Wash off with cold water.

Going back to nature and immersing yourself in its healing touch is the best way to say “I love you” to your skin. You don’t need to follow all the ayurvedic skin care tips at once.
