We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.
-Ray Bradbury

The practice of Yoga deals with all the aspects of our being and our lives, not only focus on physical postures to improve the body. The father of Modern Yoga, Patanjali, described in his book Yoga Sutra the eight aspects of a yogic lifestyle.

The first limb, Yama, is your attitude towards others and the world around you. The second limb, Niyama, is how you treat yourself or your attitude towards yourself. One of the five niyamas is Sauca or cleanliness, both physical and mental purity.

Inner cleanliness is achieved by the practice of pranayamas, asanas and Yogic cleansing to detoxify and cleanse the physical body. The mind must also be kept clean or pure. One should clean not only one self but the surroundings as well. Harmony outside helps create the inner harmony.

I´m not the make-up type of girl but everybody needs to clean their face. Instead of wasting money on expensive cosmetic cleansers you have your own the refrigerator.

Clean off all impurities from your face with a cup of milk. The skin gets soft and smooth at the same time.

Give yourself a facial treatment.

Avocado is especially pacifying the Vata dosha. This fruit is perfect to eat because of the heaviness it gives an otherwise "light" vata. This green fruit also balances the central nervous system since it contains vitamin B6. The nutritional value of avocado makes it good for indigestion but also skin care.

An avocado face pack is recommended to cure a dry skin, which usually is a problem for a vata person. The fat-rich fruit has a high level of monounsaturated fatty acids which the skin easily absorbs without obstructing the pores. Avocado is well known for its high vitamin K and Vitamin A content. It also contains small amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin E which are exellent nutrients for the skin.
