How to Look More Beautiful as You Age
Keep your skin looking like a teenager's by paying attention to the four pillars of youthful skin: nourish, rehydrate, detoxify, and remove stress. "These four pillars increase prabha, the luster and glow of the skin. And all four must be addressed from the inside and the outside.
To nourish your skin from the inside, The Council of Maharishi Ayurveda Physicians recommends following the ayurvedic guidelines for the season and your skin/body type. In addition, try adjusting your diet to become more skin-friendly.Eat plenty of sweet, juicy fruits, such as a stewed apple or pear for breakfast, to enhance rasa dhatu (nutrient fluid) and increase suppleness.
- Include multiple grains in your diet (quinoa, couscous, millet, barley, amaranth, rye and wheat) to provide a variety of minerals and the full range of nature's intelligence.
- Eat a variety of cooked vegetables with spices. Green, leafy vegetables provide fiber and nutrients such as iron and calcium, which help to nourish the blood and skin tissue.
- Eat light, easily digestible proteins such as milk, lassi, and panir (freshly made cheese), as well as proteins such as mung dhal.
- Take Youthful Skin tablets and Organic Premium Amla Berry tablets to enhance skin health and structure.
Skin-Friendly Spice Mixture
- 3 parts turmeric
- 6 parts coriander
- 6 parts fennel
- 1 part fenugreek
- 1 part black pepper
First saúte the spices in ghee, add steamed vegetables and stir. Cook for a few minutes to allow the spices to be absorbed.
"Turmeric is the greatest friend of the skin because it is purifying and is a potent antioxidant. "Cumin and fenugreek purify the blood and fat tissue, and black pepper and turmeric do the same, plus cleanse the rasa (nutrient fluid) and sweat (the waste product of fat tissue). All of these have a direct link to the health and appearance of the skin."
For internal rehydration, drink more pure water, eat sweet, juicy fruits, and include high-quality fats such as ghee or olive oil in your diet. A fat-free diet is unhealthy for the skin, and diminishes both luster and aura. But always cook fats with skin-friendly spices to improve digestion and absorption."For external reydration, massage daily with the new Youthful Skin Massage Oil, which is rich in herbs such as Shankapushpi, Gotu Kola, and Ashwagandha. This oil enhances absorption, has an anti-aging effect, and increases glow and luster. It is a most effective body oil for youthfulness, and uses new techniques for faster absorption and more satisfying aroma.
"I've been using the new Youthful Skin Massage Oil consistently for one month, and to use one word to describe it, it's heavenly," says Mary, age 49. "It absorbs deeply and completely into my skin and leaves no oily residue. People have started complimenting me on how soft and silky my hands feel."
For facial skin, the Youthful Skin Oil provides deep-layer lipid support, and the Youthful Skin Cream provides moisture balance and rehydration as well.
Royal Milk Bath
This time-tested beauty aid was recommended by the royal physicians for the queens of India to enhance glow and luster of the skin. Mix a large quantity of 70 percent rolled oats, 10 percent Indian Sarsaparilla, 10 percent Marshmallow Root and 10 percent Rose Petals.
- Place two tablespoons in the middle of a small square of cheesecloth, gather up the ends of the cloth, and tie with a string.
- Dip the cloth into warm milk and pat the entire body to deeply moisturize your skin.
- Make enough mixture for one or two months and store in an airtight container.
The number one detoxification target should be the colon. If you have a problem with Apana Vata and are constipated, for instance, your skin will only become dryer and duller. Take daily walks, eat more fibrous foods, and drink plenty of water. If you still have irregular bowel movements, take Herbal Cleanse. To seasonally detoxify the liver, go to an ayurvedic skin expert. Or take Elim-Tox-O along with Organic Genitrac for 45 days whenever the seasons are changing (for example, in the transition weeks between summer and fall, and spring and summer).
If you are under stress, it often shows up immediately in the face as a drawn, dull look. Stressed people have trouble sleeping -- and lack of sleep causes stress, so it's important to take care of both factors at the same time.
- To dissolve mental and emotional stress on a daily basis, practice the Transcendental Meditation program. For mental stress take Worry Free tablets and Tea.
- For emotional stress take Blissful Joy and do deep, easy breathing exercises such as pranayama.
- Take Deep Rest for the most restful, beauty-enhancing sleep.
Youthful Inside, Youthful Outside
Maharishi Amrit Kalash takes care of all four pillars of youthful skin from the inside. It has rich nutrients to nourish, rehydrate, and detoxify the skin, and it builds resilience to stress. It is the most powerful rasayana for enhancing overall health and providing beautiful, youthful skin.
Youthful Skin Cream is the age-defying skin cream that enhances all four pillars of youthfulness from the outside. It rehydrates, provides lipid support, contains oils that enhance collagens, and maintains the balance between collagens and elastins.
"Since using Youthful Skin Cream, I notice that my skin is not so dry in winter," said Theresa, age 50. "I spend a lot of time outside, and was developing crow's feet at the side of my eyes. After using Youthful Skin Cream, I hardly have any wrinkles left. And the ones that are still there don't show much, because my skin is so deeply nourished. My students tell me that I look much more healthy, happy and vibrant than other people my age.
