Considering all this, I shouldn’t have been surprised to read in Dr Murad’s book Conquering Cultural Stress that skincare is 80% from the inside and only 20% topical. But I was surprised at the honesty, because this was coming from a dermatologist who would clearly have a vested interest in pushing his products. I was also pleasantly surprised before my facial at the Murad Spa (in Rustan’s Makati), when I was handed some flyers with recipes I can make at home to promote healthy skin. I even joked about whether they were going to make me meditate during my facial, and guess what… there were some breathing techniques thrown in there (which were admittedly, very relaxing). I love that more people are embracing holistic wellness and enjoying the benefits!
Here are 3 of the Murad recipes that I ended up making at home. I liked these in particular because they are easy to make and the ingredients are readily available in the Philippines….
