It begins with how we live our lives. Existing in a “yang” world where we are mostly outwardly focused and overextended depletes our deepest reserves, or “yin qualities”. To keep a healthy glow, make a daily habit of replenishing and nourishing yourself from the inside out.
Sweat- exercise is the perfect way to release toxins and cleanse the pores. Choose activities that make you smile; endorphins produce a natural, rosy glow!
Relax in the sun- regeneration occurs when your body is resting. Spend 10 minutes a day in direct sunlight to help build up natural stores of Vitamin D.
Avoid inflammatory foods- set aside refined carbohydrates, sugar, coffee, alcohol, soda, red meat and extra spicy foods and lean towards a more alkaline diet.
Skin Care- pay attention to what you are putting on your skin. Avoid product with chemicals like parabens and pthelates. Your skin is your largest organ and processed skincare in the same way it does food. Choose natural skin products that are toxin free.
