On 23 February 2005 Express Newsline INDIA reported: Maharishi Ayurveda explains the reasons for seasonal changes in the quality of skin. It also offers methods to cleanse the physiology of impurities, creating balanced and healthy skin. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

While winter can cause skin to become drier and rougher, spring's approach means skin can take on a heavier, oilier quality. Why this change of skin with the change of season? This article explains that from the perspective of Maharishi Ayurveda — the holistic science of health from ancient Vedic culture — the quality of skin depends on the balance of the whole body. The article stated, 'Your skin is a mirror of what is happening inside your body.'

In spring, the quality of Kapha (earth, heaviness, stability) is more predominant in the physiology. It is a time when the body is working to purify itself, and toxins are liquefying. During this season, skin can be more moist and prone to breakouts than in winter. The article offered some tips on how to keep the body in balance in order to avoid such problems.

One necessary step is to eat foods that are cleansing, such as juicy fruits. Also, adding spices—such as coriander, cumin, turmeric, and fennel—to your food can help with sluggish digestion and improve detoxification.

Another tip the article offered is to do a daily oil massage followed by a bath. This allows the impurities to flow out of the tissues. Keeping the organs cleansed is also important. The article reported that a healthy liver is especially vital to maintaining radiant skin. Drinking lots of water helps to remove impurities as well.

Some helpful hints were given for keeping the skin healthy year-round. They included using natural cleansing products and herbal clay formulas to keep the skin fresh. Maharishi Ayurveda also recommends avoiding the use of topical formulas that could clog the pores or add impurities to the body.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
