According to the 5,000-year-old philosophy of Ayurveda, the health of our skin and hair is a reflection of our internal balance. Restoring the internal balance naturally allows “Soundarya” or the inherent “beauty from within” to radiate forth.  Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic living science and healing systems that allows for the preservation of health and prevention of disease by establishing balance and harmony through natural methods.  

With this core principle in mind, the Art of Living Foundation is proud to offer an Ayurvedic Skin and Beauty Workshop with Revathi Raghavan, Ayurveda Educator and Practitioner.

Our skin is the largest organ of the body. It is the first on the front line against all potential harms and suffers damage from many factors that are unavoidable; pollutants and toxins in the environment we live in. Our skin is further made vulnerable by exposure to synthetic and artificial ingredients in commonly-used skin-care products. In an attempt to regain health and youth, many of us resort to improper diets which compromise the immune system. These factors paired with the stress the modern-day lifestyle brings with it, negatively impact our internal balance and thus the appearance and health of our skin.

According to the 5,000-year-old philosophy of Ayurveda, the health of our skin and hair is a reflection of our internal balance. Restoring the internal imbalance naturally allows “Soundarya” or the inherent “beauty from within” to radiate forth.
