For thousands of years, Ayurvedic philosophy has viewed the body as a temple that needs to be cared for and cleansed. Life in personal balance promises health and thus satisfaction and thus inner and outer beauty and charisma. From Ayurveda, the science of life, some beautiful beauty rituals for an Ayurveda cure at home can be derived, which can be easily and easily implemented. Only natural products are used for these and there is no need for any great reading into topics such as the Panchakarma cure.
The goal of the internal and external applications is to care for and nourish the individual layers of tissue (dhatus). In this way, nutrients can be better transported and absorbed and the body is gently cleansed and nourished – a kind of little Ayurvedic detox for you and your beauty, without medicine and with nature.
Ayurveda cure at home: external beauty rituals
Oil for the hair
Instead of caring for the hair with complex cures, care products, and medicine, you can learn from the teachings in Ayurveda and simply use a good sesame oil or argan oil for your dry hair ends as a cure. Put a hazelnut-sized amount of the oil in the palm of your hand, rub it in, and apply it evenly to the ends of your hair. This is particularly suitable in the evening before going to bed, as the oil can then be particularly well absorbed.
Neem oil against blemishes
Neem oil is obtained from the seeds of the neem tree. It used to be used in high concentrations for natural pest control. Since it has a wide range of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving components, it is also ideal as an Ayurveda cure at home for the treatment of pimples. The oil can be dabbed directly on pimples and smaller blemishes directly or as an ingredient in an oil mix. Be sure to clean the face gently beforehand.
Ayurvedic face mask with turmeric and sandalwood

Ayurvedic beauty herbal preparations
The following three herbal mixtures are often used in Ayurvedic medicine and they are said to have a regenerating and balancing effect.
Ashwagandha: Indian ginseng is regarded as an anti-aging agent because it has a very Vata-balancing effect. Vata, the principle of movement, is responsible, among other things, for the aging process. Therefore, from a biochronological point of view, the last phase of human life is also associated with the dominance of the Vata Dosha.
Triphala: The combination of three very potent herbs can promote digestion and intestinal health and has an uplifting and rejuvenating effect.
Aloe Vera: In Sanskrit, Aloe Vera means “Kumari”. That means as much as the young girl. The name says it all for this medicinal plant. Used internally and externally, it can have an enormous number of positive effects. It is considered to be very rich in enzymes and is a real free radical scavenger, which is a wonderful preventative against skin aging. Aloe Vera is available in the form of juice, gel or straight from the plant.
Attention: Before you use these products, you should definitely seek individual advice from an Ayurveda expert
