The skin is the largest organ of the body that covers the entire body and needs a lot of care and attention. Skin is the outer covering also called the epidermis that covers the underlying muscles.
The skin is composed of millions of tiny orifices called pores that let out natural oils called the sebaceous oil which keeps the skin covered with natural moisture so that the skin is hydrated and protected from the attack of germs and bacterias.
Ayurvedic skin care products help in maintaining this very same pH of the skin by letting the skin retain its natural oils and moisture but cleansing the skin and nourishing it with natural herbal extracts.
Unlike cosmetic skin care products, ayurvedic skin care products do not dry the skin and cause problems to the skin’s texture. They contain no harsh chemicals, therefore, are completely safe for the skin even for those who have sensitive skin that cannot use any skin care products.
Ayurvedic Skin Care Tips
Ayurveda refers to the skin as being the warrior that protects the body from all kinds of germ infections and attacks. The skin is the outermost layer of the body that has body hair which helps in filtering out the germs and dust and the pores that help in keeping the skin moist by producing natural oils that prevent the germs from attacking the body.
Our body has these two mechanisms that help in preventing all kinds of infection but unfortunately, modern generation men and women focus on keeping the skin hairless and stripping it off of its natural oils by using cosmetic skin care products such as soaps and other makeup products.
These products tend to take away the natural skin barrier of the skin and cause them to be vulnerable to the attack from the environment such as dry skin, damaged skin, the sensitivity of the skin, redness and rashes on the skin, acne, and pimples, etc.
Ayurveda recommends many simple skin care measures that can help in preventing all such damages to the skin. Some of the important skin care tips have been mentioned below:

Always use lukewarm water when washing the body and the skin of the face. Lukewarm water helps in opening the pores and gently cleanses the skin and by dissolving all the oil and dirt from the face and body. It also helps in washing away any germs from the body. Open pores help in easier penetration of the forthcoming skin care procedures and help in better penetration.
