If a picture tells a thousand stories, according to ancient Ayurvedic principles, your mug shot (unaided by makeup, of course) tells the saga of your inner health. At Jean Eng 's Ayurvedically based Pure + Simple spas, the holistically trained estheticians can take one look at your epidermis - and body type - and almost clairvoyantly pinpoint the cause of your blemishes, dry patches and blotchiness.
