Summer Tips for Healthy Skin

Summer is a hot and humid time in Hong Kong, the ideal environment for eczema to thrive. Chinese medicine believes eczema can be caused by food, drugs or certain toiletries, causing moisture resistance and resulting in poor blood circulation. Read Dr. Grace’s lifestyle tips and healthy recipes to combat this!

Exercise for stress relief

Exercise can eliminate the accumulation of heat in the body. At the same time, it is necessary to improve the body, restore its function of body organs, and speed up the release of moisture.


The sedentary lifestyle can cause us to feel restless, and affect our sleep. Now is a good time to participate in outdoor sports to absorb nutritious sunlight, enhance yang and improve disease resistance.
