Your Skin's Natural Summer Beauty

As the summer warms your body, blood flushes your sun-kissed cheeks with a red rosy hue. Your rosy cheeks are a sign that capillary beds are dilated near the surface of your skin, to help disperse excess heat in your blood. In summer, your skin relishes with a youthful glow as it is nourished and moisturized by the plentiful circulation.



Skin beauty generally peaks in June. A pink flush accompanied by gentle sweating also flushes toxicity, leaving you feeling light and clean. After invigorating exercise, you may also notice a red flushed face as your body uses the same method to release heat.


Overheating

Summer months do bring the threat of overheating. As you start to overheat, you may feel irritated and impatient, asign your liver is overheating.

A balanced liver is essential to skin health.


If the healthy glow in your cheeks turns a deep red, your skin may be overheated as well. Pay attention to these signs before your skin becomes inflamed causing puffiness, a rash or acne. Ayurveda recommends you restore balance before a crisis.
