Most people want to look & feel young and invest many hours & a lot of money to do so. No matter what your age is, you can keep your skin looking like a teenager’s by paying attention to the four pillars of youthful skin:
• Nourish your skin all year round, both from the inside and from the outside.
• Re-hydrate your skin internally and externally — maintaining moisture balance is crucial for skin health and appearance.
• Detoxify from both the inside and outside to prevent the build-up of toxins and help keep skin clear and radiant.
• Practice stress management — stress is the number one enemy of youthful skin.
Paying attention to these four pillars increases prabha, the natural luster, and glow of the skin. But remember, it is important to address all four aspects from the inside and the outside.
Therefore, a healthy diet, rich in fibers and antioxidants, coupled with a good yoga routine, is essential for you to look young.
