Natural grooming secrets
What men need to know.
The image that comes to mind when we hear the phrase “in the pink of health” is that of a healthy person whose inner vitality shines through in the form of a natural beauty instead of a cosmetic one. More and more women are slowly gravitating towards more natural beauty treatments every day and it is definitely a welcome shift, and the world around us has more products appealing to them in the media.
Men too, have started to take an increasing interest in their appearance and the role of health in it. While some resort to face washes, fairness creams and deodorants, it’s time to shed light on the natural route to looking the best version of yourself.
Hair today, gone tomorrow?
Hair fall is probably one of the chief concerns of young men across the nation. What is more worrying rather than the cosmetic loss of hair is the fact that the individual’s body is being pushed to greater lengths now than ever before leading to loss of hair at an early age. Instead of going in for hair transplants, there are a number of steps one can take to ensure proper hair-growth via a good constitution. The biggest villains that have to be eliminated right away are stress, cigarettes, alcohol and other intoxicants.
The next step involves a diet rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B12 and Omega 3 fatty acids which is to say, a diet rich in milk products and green leafy vegetables. Supplements like your food with natural herbs like Amlaki and Bhringaraja for optimum results. In addition, using the Himalaya Anti Hair Loss Cream – which has extracts of the Butea Gum Tree – acts as an astringent on the scalp and helps curtail damage to the scalp and supports healthy hair growth.
Skin + Care
Another area most men often overlook is skincare. Most simply adopt ones used by their female friends and family members, not realizing that ingredients that are not suitable for their own type of skin often lead to ineffective solutions or only serve to damage the skin further. When it comes to facial skin care – the options are many. Even something as simple as dunking your face in ice cold water can serve to tighten your skin and take off a few years. On the other hand, a lukewarm water face wash improves circulation and promotes the opening of the skin pores.
Those battling acne can turn to one of the most widely used herbs of all time – the Neem. The Himalaya Neem Skin Wellness tablet fights acne and long-standing skin disorders.
Strange as it may sound, the best skin care routine is maintaining a healthy body. It’s a well-founded fact that nothing heals your skin quite the way a vigorous workout does. Even a few minutes spent jogging in the park opens up your pores thereby pushing out impurities. The resulting sweat cleanses the outer dermis by clearing away oil and dust particles in addition to reducing inflammation and preventing free-radical damage. It all comes down to this – a good workout not only helps build those muscles but brings out the natural glow of your skin better than most products in the market.
Most men underestimate the need for sleep. It’s not only about resting your body or refreshing your mind, sleep revitalizes your system at a very hormonal level. Staying up at nights may help you achieve a lot but it also makes your glands pump excessive cortisol into your blood stream. This cortisol then deposits in your body resulting in dark circles and eye bags. So instead of trying to cover them up with creams, a better idea would be to treat your body to a steady sleeping pattern.
Finally, the biggest step towards achieving an optimum version of yourself lies in maintaining a balanced diet. Cutting down on fats and sugars is of course extremely important in addition to consuming a diet rich in vitamins, proteins and omega 3. A strong, healthy diet supplemented by natural herbs like Ashwagandha and Kapikacchu is the most natural way of bringing out your inner vitality.
Beauty may run only skin deep but good health goes a long way in ensuring a happy and peaceful life. And since a well maintained body brings out the best in every man, it’s a win-win situation.
