What’s interesting is that intrinsic aging actually plays a smaller role in showcasing the visible signs of aging – extrinsic factors such as sun exposure, pollution, smoking, exposure to chemicals etc. are what have a large influence on how fast your skin reaches its own fatigue point. The good news, of course, is that extrinsic factors can be controlled if not completely eliminated by just making careful choices.
While sun protection, not smoking, and a more physically active lifestyle can help reduce the impact on your skin, taking good care of your skin, head to toe, with the goodness of nature is critical to reviving the very soul of your skin to keep its spirit young and vibrant!
When that happens, the message of buoyancy and vibrancy travels from the outside to the inside and the message of youthful, juicy liveliness is reinforced, which shows from the inside-out!
Perhaps this is the secret behind the deep significance of ‘Abhyanga’ or full body massage as a wellness and happiness tool in Ayurveda!
