The Ayurvedic Approach to Prevent Wrinkles and Have Younger Looking Skin

Wrinkles appear as folds, ridges or creases in the skin and are a typical result of the reduced ability of our skin to make the collagen and elastin components that keep it supple as we age. It is generally accepted that some of the aggravating factors that contribute to wrinkles are habitual facial expressions, sun damage, changes in circulation near the skin, and smoking.69

Similar to modern medicine and dermatology, Ayurveda views wrinkles as a natural part of the aging process that can be aggravated by damage to the skin from the sun, poor hydration and circulation, and repeated stressors (including nutritional deficiencies). Like the oxidative damage by toxins from smoking and other factors, Ayurveda also believes an accumulation of harmful substances can contribute to wrinkles.1

Ayurvedic wrinkle prevention and treatment methods are holistic in nature and address dosha imbalances—particularly that of the vata dosha. Proper nutrition, yoga, pancha karma procedures, and facial massage with herbal oils are some of the approaches used by Ayurveda to help improve circulation, get rid of impurities, and rejuvenate the skin.1

There are Ayurveda recipes you can use to make your own all-natural skin moisturizer and wrinkle cream that will boost anti-wrinkle nutrients and hydration. One home remedy for wrinkles can be customized to suit your particular skin type—including acne-prone skin.68
