In the chapter, “Beauty Concepts - The Triad,” Dr. Ansul writes, “Attaining beauty is not a sign of vanity. Rather it is a celebration of life,” not in the “glitzy image of beauty propagated by the media and the fashion industry,” but by discovering the essence of you. That concept alone breaks ground, for it encourages you to look inward, and assigns the responsibility for attaining beauty to you, not the perfect cream, makeup, or cosmetic procedure.
She writes, “Self-realization is an evolution of the innate knowledge within your being.” It is a “Triad of Mind, Body and Spirit.” This chapter serves as an invaluable guide to achieving true beauty, through self-realization. It emphasizes inner balance through positive thoughts, physical fitness and spiritual well-being. Dr. Ansul states, “You cannot isolate an organ and expect wonders. Every organ in your body is interconnected by a complex myriad of physiological pathways. Therefore, to attain youthful skin, you cannot isolate the skin and manage it as a singular distinct organ. You must heal your entire being.” Without a doubt, the science behind that concept rings true.
As I continued to read, I remembered how carelessly I have often treated my own skin, expecting it to be beautiful no matter how I neglected it. But Dr. Noor’s advice, “Beauty within, beauty without,” convinced me that no makeup, cream, or serum could cover the damage inflicted by neglect, or an unhealthy life style. “Skin Sensibility” not only promotes a new way of thinking about beauty, but a path to attain it. Entire chapters are devoted to treating maladies that detract from skin health, such as ongoing stress, sun damage, smoking, lack of exercise and poor diet. I also found Dr. Ansul’s bonus chapter of unique nature-based recipes inspired by Eastern civilizations such a great gift to my cache of beauty secrets. Though largely unknown to the Western world, these natural medicinal treatments have stood the test of time, from the purifying properties of Saffron Tea, to the beautifying effects of washing your hair with Gram Flour.
“Skin Sensibility” contains more information about the nature of the skin than any other book I’ve read on the subject. It explains the differences between young and mature skin, motivating me to reevaluate the efficacy of the moisturizers and cleansers I’m currently using. It includes a section on cosmetic treatments for aging or damaged skin, such as Intense Pulsed Light Systems (IPL). The chapter, “The Power of Light” is especially informative, because as IPL technology has advanced, it is now being used with great success on many skin conditions—hair removal, wrinkle reduction, rosacea, leg veins, acne scars, and the list goes on.
We all want to look beautiful, at every age. Dr. Ansul Noor’s global approach to skin care supports that desire—health and beauty for our entire lives. I found “Skin Sensibility” fascinating and enlightening, and I highly recommend it.
