How does mindful living help in taking care of your skin?
According to me, skin is all about your lifestyle. I believe what’s inside shows outside. So if you don’t drink ample amount of water, eat junk, don’t wash your skin properly, and don’t protect it from sun and other environmental hazards then for sure you will see that your skin is full and has problems like acne, grey skin, discoloration, pre-mature aging etc.
Whereas if you keep a good healthy balanced lifestyle like sufficient water, healthy eating, less makeup, multivitamin and mandatory sunblock, you’ll witness the natural glow you’ve been looking for.

But I quote “only if your skin is showing signs of a bigger problem and you have medical recommendation for it”
A single tablet cannot treat every patient. Just as that, every treatment cannot be perfect for you. Also, everything that’s broken does not need to be mended. There are skin concerns that only need time to fade away.
