Ayurveda and Beauty

                          Ayurveda considers both internal and external factors for providing a regimen for Skin Care. Right from proper diet to behavior, the daily routine, especially going to sleep on time, etc all these factors have a major say in the health of our Skin. And, as most of us can testify after looking into the mirror daily, it is always the quality of our life that determines depth of our Beauty. Ayurveda's 'Three Pillars' approach fits perfectly into the spa setting for it allows treatment at all the four levels i.e. body, senses, mind and spirit. Three Pillars of Beauty The basic concept is of 'Subhanga Karanam' transforming the person into something more than beautiful, making the appearance powerful, pleasing, and uplifting to the environment. Most of us can easily recall meeting someone impressive who looked radiant, special and unforgettable. Beyond beautiful! This is the inner power that 'Subhanga Karanam' brings to the surface through the 'Three Pillars' approach. These are (1) Outer Beauty, (2) Inner Beauty and (3) Lasting Beauty. The First Pillar, 'Roopam' is the Outer Beauty, the visible appearance such as skin, nails and hair. The aesthetics industry is thoroughly familiar with Outer Beauty. Having seen the contrast of 'before-and-after,' we know that the physical features we are born with are only one piece of the picture. The procedures nourish the skin as well as the senses, mind, body and spirit. We never create disturbance or discomfort. We don't apply too much pressure. We don't use extremes of temperature. All treatments soothe, nourish and relax. 'Gunam' is the Second Pillar, the Inner Beauty, visible to the soul. Inner Beauty reveals the most intimate and powerful part of life, our consciousness or the inner self. Maybe you've noticed how the appearance of a person changes as you get to know him. One who is kind and sincere seems to grow more attractive, while one who is tense and harsh becomes unattractive. Outer Beauty reveals the inner self, the Inner Beauty. The Third Pillar, 'Vayastyag', means the eternal, Lasting Beauty. Lasting Beauty helps us look younger than our chronological age. Modern Science and Ayurveda agree that cellular aging is, in great part, due to the damage caused by free radicals. These free radicals, or agents of decay, are born of unfavorable conditions such as stress, pollutants, chemicals, poor quality of food etc. While some of these factors are not within our control, we can counteract to a reasonable extent free radical activity and retard the aging process. For Lasting Beauty, Ayurveda prescribes a specific anti-aging regimen of diet and herbal supplements as well as products and treatments.
