Radical Beauty Pillar 2: External Nourishment
This pillar will identify the most effective ingredients to apply directly to your skin, as well as the most beneficial Radical Beauty skin-care routines. These will ensure that you nourish your skin in the best way possible while avoiding toxins that can tax your skin and migrate to your inner body, polluting your bloodstream and liver and contributing to aging toxic congestion.
Simple daily routines such as abhyanga oil massage, when done properly, can soothe your nervous system and create powerfully rejuvenating effects, including a reduction in the pent-up stress that contributes to wrinkles. These routines can help your organs actually grow younger and help restore the vitality and “glow” to your skin.
The powerful shifts in this pillar also promote detoxification by manually supporting your lymphatic system from the outside in.
Take Away: One of the topics we cover in this pillar is the concept of having too much “pitta”, or fire, in your body, which can be aging. Try using pure rosewater as a toner; it’s a great way to cool your skin and balance its pH.
