    Ayurvedic tips for skin & sleep | Martha Soffer, Ayurvedic expert 

    “That’s the beauty of Ayurveda, it’s intuitive. If I’m too hot, I’m going to take off my sweater. If I’m too cold, I’m going to put it back on. If I am sluggish, I should exercise and move my body. If I have a cold, I should eat or drink something warming,” says Ayurvedic expert Martha Soffer, who is an herbalist, chef, Panchakarma expert, master Ayurvedic Pulse diagnostician, and founder of Surya Spa. In this episode of Clean Beauty School, mindbodygreen beauty director and host Alexandra Engler chats with Soffer about the practice of Panchakarma, tips to help you sleep, and how she cares for her skin.

    Sauna blankets, skin care, & perimenopause symptoms | Judy Greer, actress and activist
