Water ’essential for summer skincare’
During the summer months it’s easy to think skincare is all about suncream, but there’s actually far more to be aware of!
Thomas Mueller, an ayruvedic practitioner and member of the Ayurvedic Practioners Association (www.apa.uk.com) claims that the essential thing to remember during the warmer weather is drinking plenty of water.
He explained: "The importance of proper hydration cannot be overemphasised, as it supports the release of water-soluble toxins from kidneys.
"Plus, a hydrated skin looks and feels better, with improved elasticity."
To achieve this healthy skin, then you’ll need to drink one to two litres of water a day, helping to flush out toxins and give your body the hydration it needs to keep you cool and functioning properly.
Pure water is certainly the go-to liquid for hydration, however Mr Mueller also advises that as part of your daily routine you might want to try drinking a little coconut water as well, "as it will help cool you down and hydrate".
Coconut oil is also especially useful in the summer months, as the ayurvedic practitioner suggests that a daily dry massage followed by the application of this fragrant oil will help to seal in moisture and leave skin with a healthy glow.
Rubbing oils into troublesome areas such as elbows, knees and heels is also a great idea after spending time outdoors, especially while on holiday.
If hot flushes tend to flare up during the warmer weather then there are some handy solutions you might enjoy trying.
Rose petals have a cooling effect when in contact with the skin, so spraying a little rose water on your face and chest can really help reduce your temperature - leaving you relaxed and smelling beautiful.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
