JET. SET. GLOW- 3 MUST-DO BEAUTY TIPS FOR EVERY JET-SETTER

  Whether your next vacation will be spent strolling along cobbled streets in Rome or relaxing on a beautiful sun-bleached beach in the Maldives, chances are travel will be on your agenda.  But, as any frequent flyer knows, the notoriously dry air in an aeroplane cabin can take a toll on the organs, including the skin, leaving it dehydrated, dull and puffy. Drinking water and avoiding diuretics, such as tea, coffee, and alcohol, will help the skin stay hydrated. But due to the extremely low humidity-less than 20%, when normal levels are usually above 40% -  your complexion may need an extra boost to stay ultra-hydrated and nourished.  Here are a couple of tips that will help take care of...

ON BEAUTY: CELEBRITY YOGIS - SHARON GANNON. GURU JAGAT. DARIO CALVARUSO

Yogis, very often have a distinctive glow, bright eyes and a gravitating aura. They also often look a lot younger than their chronological age. So, what’s their secret? I began my research; I started reading up (I've probably read just under 100 in-depth books on the correlation between yoga, beauty, and Ayurveda), I attended yoga festivals and even started hanging with Yogis. It all started coming together; it was a lot deeper than what I imagined it to be. At the annual Evolution Yoga Conference in Hong Kong, I had the opportunity to meet and interview an array of renowned yogis: Dario Calvaruso, a senior teacher at Pure Yoga, who has yoga retreats in exotic locations around the world eg....

HOW TO DO A BEAUTY DETOX THE AYURVEDIC THE WAY

My skin was riddled with acne, my hair was brittle, and I constantly felt bloated. I couldn't figure it out, so I went to several dermatologists, but nothing was helping. Nothing, until I introduced Ayurveda into my beauty routine and upped the ante with healthy fats, warming herbs, and breathwork. When our system is clogged, it prevents us from digesting our food properly, causing toxins to build up and get reabsorbed into the body. This manifests on skin as acne, dullness, and dehydration. If your diet is nutrient-dense but you're not absorbing the nourishing qualities because of poor digestion, you'll be going around in circles. Ayurveda has wonderful solutions that can help detoxify the body by improving digestion and eliminating...
