Anti-aging : Acupressure can be used as a facial massage technique to enhance the muscle tone and improve blood circulation to the face. This improves the tone and tightness in facial muscles and lessens the appearance of wrinkles. Simple finger pressure on specific facial points can relieve stress and increase the release and elimination of toxins.

The equation is simple: How you well you eat determines how good you look. Follow these Kapha-specific diet recommendations to keep your skin healthy and oil-free.

  • Include proteins, vitamins and iron in every meal.
  • Eat plenty of leafy green vegetables, like lettuce and cabbage, and fresh fruits like apples and oranges.
  • Avoid overripe bananas and figs.
  • Get plenty of vitamin B2 – a deficiency can cause oily skin. Nutritional yeast and wheat germ are a good source. So are buckwheat, oats, barley, royal jelly, black beans, lentils and basmati rice.
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
  • Avoid soft drinks and alcoholic beverages.
  • Avoid meat, fried and highly seasoned foods. Avoid animal fats and heat-processed vegetable oils – use cold-pressed canola or olive oil instead.
  • Avoid refined sugar, salt, chocolate and junk food.
