Want Glowing skin? Read this



Having recently asked my facebook friends what they would want me to blog about I had one of my friends asked me to write about how to get glowing skin. This is a topic I remember having a conversation about with during my acupuncture course with another student, I remember him saying that he wouldn’t want to work with people who were only thinking about beauty and not on health.

When I asked myself that question the answer became obvious, the way we look after ourselves shows in our bodies, our personalities, and of course our faces! The main bulk of  what I will cover is lifestyle changes that will benefit our whole being which will show up not only in our faces, but in our bodies, our personalities , and the way we carry ourselves. What I will offer is not a quick fix but the investment into yourself will be of far more benefit overall than just applying topical treatments without addressing the underlying causes.
