Here are 7 best Ayurvedic tips to prevent premature ageing. Take note.

1. Dietary changes


Processed foods are greatly responsible for premature ageing. The additives, preservatives and artificial flavoring substances are not good for health in any way. And their negative effects are shown on your skin and hair first. To combat such situations, one must stick to a healthy and balanced diet. Freshly cooked and high-fiber foods are recommended. Spicy, fried, processed foods are prohibited. Ayurveda says that all flavors should be a part of your diet including sweet, sour, pungent, salty, astringent and bitter.

Eating well is one aspect of fitness and exercising regularly is another.

Neem is one of the most popular natural remedies for skin problems which strengthens and heals you internally. Ayurveda says that neem is warm in nature and cold in action.

4. Yoga and meditation

Stress is a major cause of premature ageing. Research shows that people who deal with a lot of stress shed more hair, deal with premature graying and show the signs of ageing much earlier than the rest. One of the best Ayurvedic ways of keeping stress at bay is yoga and meditation. Just a couple of minutes of mindfulness can help you stay rejuvenated all day and it takes your stress away as well. It helps you attain inner peace which is one of the most important ways of preventing premature ageing.

5. Sound sleep

Lack of sleep in no way can be beneficial for your health. Every person needs seven to eight hours of sleep to stay fit and active throughout the day. Lack of sleep also contributes to stress and is detrimental for your overall health, and this contributes to premature ageing to quite an extent. Sound sleep helps you relax your body and mind from all the stress it goes through during the day.
