The skin – the mirror of the soul
You can often recognize our lifestyle by looking at our faces. Maybe we didn't sleep enough, drank too much alcohol or were simply very stressed. The skin appears tired, is red, pale or impure. Of course, nutrition also plays an important role. Either way, our skin often reflects our lifestyle habits.
