What to Feed your Face!

Do you ever find yourself struggling to pronounce the plethora of ingredients found on food and product labels? What is sodium lauryl sulfate? How do I pronounce monoethanolamine? Nowadays, it’s become trendy to shop organically and use natural skin care products. Many of us, by now, have taken this trend and turned it into a life-long journey to live a healthier, more balanced life.

In India, the people have been using natural fruits, vegetables and plants in their skin care regimen for thousands of years. The rich traditions of Ayurveda, teach us to maintain a healthy lifestyle during the various phases of life by taking a holistic approach to our total wellbeing and keeping the three dosha elements within us – fire (Pitta), air (Vata) and earth (Kapha) – in balance. When it comes to skin care, what we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on our bodies. Remember, about 60% of what we apply to our skin actually gets absorbed, making it even more important to be ingredient conscious.

We know that, by eating a balanced variety of natural, nutrient-rich foods, you feel satiated, have more energy, your body functions more efficiently and you have greater mental stamina and acuity. All of this, of course, translates into healthier, more radiant skin. So why not include the foods we enjoy eating in a skin care product?

DoshaCare understands how the skin can benefit from quality ingredients. Here are just a few of the natural ingredients contained in DoshaCare skin care products that are so good for your skin, you can taste it:

Avocado – nourishes and conditions dry skin, increasing water-soluble collagen
Coconut – moisturizes and softens the skin
Cucumber – cools and soothes irritated skin
Ginger – stimulates circulation and helps remove toxins from the skin
Green Tea — a powerful antioxidant, natural astringent and antibacterial agent to detoxify and purify the skin
Lemon – a natural decongestant that refreshes and purifies the skin

Tomato – tones and firms the skin while nourishing and combating blemishes

So, go ahead, dig in!
