Maintaining glowing, healthy skin can be difficult to achieve in our modern world. Life moves fast, creating stress and anxiety, which negatively impacts the skin - not to mention the levels of pollution that we come into contact with on a daily basis.
In Ayurveda, the quality of your skin can be a very accurate indicator of your state of balance - or imbalance! Along with taking internal herbal formulations, if necessary, it's also important to maintain a regular daily routine, eat warm, cooked food and practice abhyanga (self oil massage) to help heal and strengthen your skin from the outside in.

To take care of our eyes, the science of Ayurveda educates us about the importance of ocular health, and the at-home eye care practices are simple to follow. In Sushrut Samhita, one of the classical texts of Ayurveda, there are nineteen chapters dedicated to the eyes: their anatomy, physiology, common diseases and their cures, and preventive measures to maintain health, along with recommended diet and Ayurvedic remedies.
