Its no secret that I am all about nourishing our insides to glow on the outside!
If you have been following me a while now you know I love my whole food nutritional support, Juice Plus. This means I get in 30 varieties of fruits and veg every day and is a life saver on the days im super busy!
Bright eyes, glowing skin, healthy luscious hair and lean muscles are all signs of beauty, signs that you are reflecting whats going on, on the inside. When it comes to beauty, it really does matter what you put into your mouth. You can’t just focus on the outer layer, we must also care about whats going on inside us.
If you are wanting to have clearer skin, stronger nails, healthy hair and sparkling eyes you need to focus on what you are consuming every day. What you are eating and drinking has a huge impact. Im not surprised anymore by clients who say that they didn’t realise the impact food had to that degree when it came to skin health etc.
When we increase our intake of vitamins, minerals, anxitoxidnts, phytonutrients, fatty acids, enzymes and all that jazz you get literally glow from the inside out! Here Ill share with you some of my beauty inside out tips
Eat real whole foods - a diet rich in protein, healthy fats, complex carbs and fibre is going to serve you best.
Eat more greens - I always make sure I have some form of green food with my meals, I love filling up my smoothies with greens too. This is a great way to get them in
Eat protein with every meal - our body needs protein, our cells need the amino acids to repair. When eating meat always choose organic.
Limit or Remove completely Gluten and Sugar - People are becoming more and more sensitive to these two things, causing inflammation in the body and hormonal issues.
Limited to No Dairy - Dairy can be a huge no-no for keeping the skin glowing, if you find you are breaking out remove dairy from your diet and see what happens. Organic dairy occasionally can be fine for some.
Avoid packaged and Processed foods - full of salt, artificial sweeteners, hidden sugars and processed ingredients most of the time, its best to avoid them completely.
Drink more water and add lemon - one thing I see all too often is the lack of water in peoples diets, especially those who want to lose weight. But water can have such a huge impact on our skins texture, causing it to be dry and not as plump. Adding lemon can be a great detoxifier.
Enjoy Antioxidant rich foods - these are so great for fighting sings of raging and boosting our general immunity. Berries are a great choice!
Cleanse the liver - There are many veggies that have a detoxing affect on the body, again using lemon is great too. We want to make sure our liver is able to rid the body of unwanted toxins and keep us moving along.
Heal the gut - when our digestive system doesn’t work optimally, we can get clogged and our body becomes built up with toxins. If your gut isn’t healthy we struggle to absorb nutrients from our foods. This is where juice plus was my saviour! (If you want more info ask)
Sleep and Rest - Aim for 8 hours a night, its not called beauty sleep for no reason. Remembering that things can always wait, making sure you find time to have downtime, do yoga, read, take a bath.
Skincare, whats in it? - Your skin is one of the largest organs, what you put on it gets absorbed directly to the blood stream. Its so important to be mindful of what you are using. Cutting down and removing chemicals will have a huge impact on your health.
