World Health Day is celebrated on April 7th every year to help raise awareness about global health issues and promote healthy living. While many people associate health with physical fitness and nutrition, skincare can also play an important role in your overall health. Skincare isn’t just about the products you use daily – it’s also about ensuring your skin gets the nourishment it needs.
Holistic approach to skincare
Beautiful skin starts with nourishment from within – from body to mind and soul. Holistic skincare is an approach that focuses on overall skin health and wellness, rather than treating specific skin issues alone. One of the important factors of your skin health is the foods you consume daily.
