Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge

Introducing Ayurveda, an ancient healing system from India, dates back 5,000 years. Translating to ‘science of life’, Ayurveda encompasses the profound knowledge of living. It’s seen as the mother or the source of all medicines.

Ayurveda is all about taking care of our mind, body, and spirit. Rituals play a big role in our daily life, keeping us grounded and boosting our spirits. They bring a deep sense of calm and balance. Each Ayurvedic ritual has its own special benefits and can be tailored to suit different skin types and seasons.

Dr Vasant Lad Ayurvedic Physician, BAM&S, MASC and author of 12 books on Ayurveda states“Ayurveda is not just about treating diseases; it is about creating harmony in body, mind, and spirit.” [1]


The Essence of Rituals in Ayurvedic Care:

Ayurveda really emphasizes the importance of intentional rituals and routines for taking care of ourselves. From morning meditations to indulgent full-body oil massages, these practices help us connect with our inner selves and find balance.

They’re all about finding that inner peace and harmony. So, you can see why rituals are such a key part of Ayurveda’s approach to self-care.

The Ayurvedic route to great health involves two simple steps:
1. Doing less;
2. Being more.”

The Significance of Self-Care for Well-Being:

Acknowledge the incredible significance of Hair and Skin in taking care of your well-being. 

Making self-care a priority boosts your resilience to stress, amps up your energy levels, and enhances both your physical and mental health. Self-care isn’t just a fancy treat; it’s a necessary indulgence that adds to a life of sophistication and grace.


“Investing early in the health of your skin, with regular skin care, will not only better protect it from the harsh effects of changing seasons, but also keep you looking and feeling your best throughout the year,” says Steven Nwe, DO, a dermatologist with Northwestern Medicine. “The key to skin resiliency is knowing your skin and treating it well.”  


Crafting a Personalized Self-Care Ritual:

To fully experience the benefits of Ayurvedic self-care, it’s important to create a personalized ritual that vibes with you.

Pick activities and practices that bring you joy and align with your preferences. For instance, if you love taking baths, make it a daily ritual with essential oils and bath salts. If yoga brings you peace, create a morning routine that eases you into the day.

Embrace this transformative experience. Let your body, mind, and spirit indulge in exactly what they desire. It’s time to nourish yourself and embrace a life of vitality and fulfillment.

But it is imperative to mention the use of Sun Screen as mentioned by Alex Serron, skin therapist at Heyday

The sun is responsible for 90 percent of skin’s aging, It must be worn every day, no matter the season or if you’re going to be inside. Don’t forget that UVA rays, which cause skin aging, can penetrate windows.” 


Indulgence is not synonymous with selfishness

Notably a refined practice of self-care that enables us to better care for others. For discerning women, self-care is an essential aspect of life. Ayurveda, the ancient wisdom, says pampering yourself is key to nourishing your body, mind, and spirit. Try Abhyanga or Swedana for a transformative experience that effortlessly releases tension and uplifts your spirit.
