Description

Ayurvedic Beauty Care presents both ancient and modern Ayurvedic secrets for beauty-care. The aim of this book is to elevate western understanding of beauty to new levels with the deeper Ayurvedic insights.

These insights hold powerful health promoting and enhancing methods and luxurious beauty techniques such that all levels of beauty (outer, inner, secret) can be realized in our increasingly fast paced and chaotic world.

There are two audiences that are addressed in this volume. First and foremost, every person should be able to find what brings out their true beauty. In this light, the book is intended to be a self-care manual. At the same time, those interested in or practicing as beauty therapists or aestheticians should receive the benefits of the deep insights and marvelous results Ayurveda can offer their clients.
