Beauty Inside & Out
Beauty truly does start within, and the best way to cultivate “the glow” is to eat healthy and exercise. That’s why it’s so important to never put anything on your body that you would not put in your body. Skin care products, hair care products, fragrances, and makeup are filled with toxins, preservatives, heavy metals, and endocrine disruptors. Your skin absorbs everything, so do your research. Shopping for skin care should be like shopping for groceries— look for natural and organic ingredients.
Turns out, the same superfoods we have been eating for years are also great for beauty. Familiar ingredients such as kale, fruit, minerals, and probiotics are now showing up in skin care. Likewise, components we’ve long associated with beauty, such as charcoal and collagen, are now showing up in food and supplements. Glow from inside out with these clean beauty staples from our Wellness & Beauty Editor.
Fruits & Veggies
Aim for products with plenty of fruits and veggies. Think: Kale, cucumber, avocado, carrot, pomegranate, and more. If it’s good for your insides, it’s likely great for your outsides, too
One of the worst diet fads in recent history was the “low fat/no fat” craze. Your body needs fat — your brain runs on it, your hormones are made of it, and it’s the ultimate skin food.
