Popularly dubbed as the land of Ayurveda, there’s a wealth of information on Anti-Ageing in India. Here are few tips from India on Anti-Ageing.
Unlike other tips we’ve seen, this is more to do with consumption of certain foods that are known for their anti-ageing properties and used widely throughout India.
Consuming 10 – 20 ml of Aloe Juice everyday is believed to offset ageing. It gives glowing and healthy skin from within, from also combatting deterioration due to ageing and accelerates healing, repair and rejuvenation of cells.
Cleanse is similar to detox, though it is done in a more systematic way and the cleansing ingredients chosen are often done based on one’s body type. Ayurveda says there are three major body constitutions, Vata, Pitta and Kapha, though not many have pure constitutions and are often, a combination of two or more types. Based on what type one’s body is, the cleansing ingredients are chosen. However, you can go with general cleansing agents like Margosa Leaf Powder, that works too.
Snack on Veggies & Fruits
Three large meals is no longer the norm. We all have a snack at least once or twice a day. Have fruits, vegetables or dry fruits and nuts for snack, instead of chips or other fried foods. Carrots, Cucumbers, Beets, Lettuce, Apples, Kiwis, Berries, Dry Nuts, etc. are not only tasty and crunchy; they’re loaded with nutrients and antioxidants, to keep ageing signs at bay.
Loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, Ginger can help fight ageing effectively. You can have it as tea, add it to herbal or floral teas or green juices, etc.
Indian Gooseberry is touted as the fruit of immortality in a lot of texts. While immortality is not a feat that’s achievable, it just signified delayed ageing and longevity without the issues that come with ageing. Yes, you can age gracefully, look and feel young and healthier long, when consuming a good dose of Indian Gooseberry everyday. Having it as a juice (raw) is best. However you can also have it candied with honey or jaggery, or pickled, etc. While cooked variants carry lesser goodness, they’re still effective.
A highly sought after spice, Saffron is popular for the unique flavor and enticing golden color it lends to foods. Rich in Lycopene, Vitamins A and B, Saffron is a key ingredient in numerous skincare preparations in Ayurveda. You can use it in your skincare routine, or add a strand or two to your cup of milk at night to get the anti-ageing benefits from this wonderful spice.
Have you seen women from India applying Turmeric to their skin? They do it regularly and it part of their culture, tradition and skincare routine.
