My Ayurvedic Skincare Routine | Healthy Skin Tips

Hey i’m kendra and i’m the content
project manager at Banyan botanicals and a student of Ayurveda. I’m here today to
give you the inside scoop on my personal skincare routine. We actually get a lot
of questions about skincare and so I want to give you some tips on using
Banyan products and daily habits to achieve glowing skin, let’s get started! You know how people say it’s what’s
inside that matters most, this is especially true for Ayurvedic skincare.
Whatever you put into your body expresses itself through the skin. That’s
why I make sure that I eat a wholesome diet and drink enough water to remain
properly hydrated – it’s super key. And so to do that I get up first thing in the
morning and I drink a big mug of warm water with a squeeze of lime to calm my
Pitta. And so for what I like to eat I like to nourish my body with fresh
wholesome organic foods as close to the source as possible. That means that if I
don’t know how an ingredient is made I’m probably not gonna eat it. I also like to
eat locally and seasonally. That means in summer I’m eating a lot of berries for
breakfast! So another essential aspect of achieving
glowing skin is to make sure you get a good night’s sleep – for me I like to get
somewhere between seven and eight hours, that’s my sweet spot. And it’s important
because while you’re sleeping your skin is working at repairing itself. I really
like to support this natural process by applying a little bit of beauty balm
before I go to bed – this stuff is amazing it’s got ghee in it which is super
nourishing and makes my skin feel really supple. And it’s got rose geranium
essential oil so the smell helps me sleep. All of those habits really nurture
me from the inside out. For me skin care is more than just pampering myself it’s
an act of self-love and washing my face is an important aspect of my daily
routine, so let’s talk about it. So after I get up in the morning I
splash my face with cool water and I make sure to get my eyes as it’s really
calming for my pitta. And then I apply a little bit of soothing skin balm –
this stuff’s amazing it’s got neem and guduchi in it which helps clear the
heat and since it’s summer I really need it. It also works as a great primer
before you put on your makeup for the day. After this I go and do my daily
meditation and breathing practices. This is important to me because it’s super
calming and helps me manage my stress. You know what that means: less wrinkles!
After my day is done in the evening I like to wash my face with oil – yes oil!
This was life-changing for me and if you haven’t tried it yet I urge you to give
it a go. So your skin actually absorbs whatever you put on it, so the oil is
like food for your skin. I like to use the neem oil which is really calming and
soothing for heat. So I just use a little bit of oil and I apply it to my face
with clean hands then I massage it into my skin in small circular strokes. If
I’ve worn some makeup that day I like to use a loofah to help exfoliate.
Afterwards I like to use some neem toner that I made with the powder. All you do is
you make a really strong tea and strain it well then fill your bottle and spritz
away. And then I do a face mask. I really like the manjistha and mung bean
recipe that we have on the Banyan website however most of the time I keep
it really simple and I just do a honey and triphala face mask. And so I take two
teaspoons of triphala powder and I mix it with one tablespoon of honey. After I
apply it to my face I sometimes leave it on for up to thirty
minutes. Afterwards I really notice my skin is a lot brighter smoother and my
pores seem finer. So I recently started taking the healthy skin tablets and I’ve
noticed a huge reduction in redness and splotchiness
and my skin seems to be holding more moisture. So that’s my daily skincare
routine we’re always here to help answer your questions so give us a like and
