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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
