Ayurveda: An Ancient + Timeless Approach to Beauty

Despite being thousands of years old and originating in India, the ancient science of ayurveda is thriving-especially in the skincare industry. Its herbs and techniques are showing up all over beauty products and spa menus. This "knowledge of life" explains that skin is an expression of what's happening on the inside, and has a unique understanding of how to promote internal wellness that radiates on the outside.

This course will enable you to approach skin care from a more holistic perspective. You'll learn the relationship between skin and internal wellness, causes and external remedies for the most common skin imbalances from an ayurvedic perspective, and how to create completely natural ayurvedic formulas to feed the skin.

  • Approach skin care from a more holistic perspective
  • Understand the relationship between skin and internal wellness
  • Begin to assess ayurvedic skin types
