Today, the beauty is defined using terms like “fair complexion”, “thin figure”, “long limbs” and so on. But, Ayurveda, the 5000-year-old system of natural healing defines beauty as “Roopam, gunam, vayastyag, iti shubhanga karanam.”
The outer beauty. Personified by shining and healthy hair and clear and radiant skin tone.
The inner beauty. The beauty that shines from within. Characterized by warm personality, kind-hearted and innocent-mind.
The beauty that lasts. Feeling and Looking younger than your chronological age. When age is just a number.
Thus, Ayurveda doesn’t depend upon cosmetics products and treatments to achieve the desired state of beauty.It is simple; beauty doesn’t specify the shape of the body or colour of the skin or length of hair. Beauty is what you reflect, naturally, on the outer surface and from within.
Roopam, the outer beauty is a reflection of a healthy diet and proper routine. The frame of your body structure is something you are born with, and you can’t do anything about it; but big, medium or small, each body type can be beautiful as long as good health exists.
People often say, “you are what you eat ” which is true, but Ayurveda emphasis “you are what you digest.”. Bright and radiant skin and hair begin with proper nutrition, efficient digestion and regular elimination.
Eat your heaviest meal at midday, when Agni, the digestive fire is strongest and most aggressive that makes digestion faster and easier.
While eating, keep your focus on your food rather than anything else like T.V. or work
Don’t drink cold beverages; it cools down the digestive fire
Treat all your taste-buds at each meal- sweet, salty, sour, bitter, pungent and astringent.
Eat lots of juicy fruits and leafy vegetable, instead of drinking their juice.
Sip lukewarm water throughout the day to flush toxins out of your system.
The body needs rest to rejuvenate, sleep at least 6-8 hours a day.
Eat light dinner, at least 2-3 hours before retiring to bed.
Take a warm bath before going to bed.
Last, but not the least, keep yourself active. Indulge in physical activities like jogging, cycling, yoga. Play sports. Be Happy.
