Ayurvedic Tea or a Beautiful Skin !!

4. Youthful Skin Tea

Premature aging of the skin can be caused by the accumulation of toxins in the body, which ultimately deposit in the skin. This is a result of undigested food that accumulates in the stomach overnight due to poor digestion or excessive stress. The key to maintaining a youthful complexion is the regular removal of these digestive impurities before they damage the DNA in the skin cells. There is a simple tea that removes digestive toxins. The recipe is below:

Boil 4-5 cups of water in the morning. Add the following ingredients to the water and continue to let it boil for about 5 minutes longer with the lid on.

  • ½ teaspoon of whole cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon of whole coriander seeds
  • ½ teaspoon of whole fennel seeds

Strain out the seeds and pour the tea into a thermos. Drink small sips of the tea throughout the day. If the tea is too strong, reduce the amount of seeds to a quarter teaspoon for two weeks and then increase it back to a half teaspoon.

Follow these four ayurvedic beauty secrets for at least three months and you will see signs of younger, radiant skin.
