According to Ayurveda, seasons are classified as ritus. And each Ritu signifies a host of changes that take place in the five elements of earth (pritvi), water (jala), fire (tejas), wind (vayu) and space (akasha). Ayurveda offers various regimens and rules to follow based on different ritu (season) to help our body accomodate to the changing environment.

Due to cold winter winds, our skin feels more dried and dehydrated. Here are some of the Ayurvedic recipes you can try to keep your skin healthy during winters:
Abhyanga or self massage, is very helpful for the skin nourishment during winters. Use the Nari Sondarya Oil infused with Almonds & Olives or any of our new Body Massage Oils formulated with rich Ayurvedic Herbs and follow by bathing with water.
"Utsādana (उत्सादन) refers to “ointments” and “unguents” forming part of the cosmetics and personal decoration that was once commonly applied to one’s body in ancient Kashmir (Kaśmīra) as mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa."
Utsādana help remove dead cells that accumulate on the skin because of dryness. Amrutam's freshly made Ubtan and rich Face Masks are extremely beneficial for exfoliation and unlike other exfoliators, do not strip your skin of its natural moisture.
Additionally, we also recommend the below simple tips to keep your body healthy during winters:
- Avoid taking diets and drinks as are possessing pungent, bitter and astringent tastes which cause Vata imbalance
