6 Ways to Improve your Skin


1. Change your Pillowcase. 

Your pillowcase collects all kinds of ‘dirt’ that can clog the pores on your face over time, from conditioner residue left on your hair post-shower to natural scalp oils to grime and grease on your body. That's why dermatologists recommend changing it at least once a week, or more if you're acne-prone

2. Don't Reuse Your Flannel? 

Any wet cloth is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. So, try using a muslin face cloth, buy a few and wash them after use!

3. Exfoliation. 

Gentle exfoliation is fine but don't be tempted to use your body exfoliator on your face! Big mistake! Our dosha specific Face & Body Polishes remove everyday impurities and dead skin cells leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth.

4. Sleep. 

'Beauty sleep' is real. Whilst there are many different types of sleep deprivation and insomnia, generally they can be divided into two patterns; difficulty getting to sleep, and difficulty staying asleep. Remedies for no two people are the same. The causes of sleep disturbances vary from person to person. Read ‘Are you getting a good night’s sleep?’ for some tips to help you wind down.

5. You are what you eat! 

Drinking water is great but eat vitamin packed fruit & veggies for glowing skin. Just add a salad ... your face will thank you! Try one of Linda Bretherton’s programmes – Classic 7 Day Ayurveda Cleanse  or the 14 Day Online Ayurveda Purification, I can highly recommend them to make you feel good on the outside as well as the inside!

6. Avoid Skin Dehydration 

Ageing skin can lose its ability to hold on to moisture, make oil, and heal slower. That means more wrinkles. So, help stop wrinkles by hydrating your skin. One of the best ways to hydrate your skin is with high quality, natural, organic serum. Look at our Dosha specific Face Serums  and our fabulous Face Creams to keep your skin moisturised.
