"True beauty comes from within" ... You are taught that from a young age, a reminder that who you are inside is what really matters. While this may sound cliche, it is the truth, beauty really does come from inside us. Keeping our bodies healthy and our minds active and nourished shows. It's a direct and easy path to a beautiful body and a beautiful mind and heart.So where to start in your pursuit of true beauty? Read on!

You Are What You Eat

One cannot be beautiful without first being healthy, and a healthy body starts with a healthy, well-balanced diet. Many foods, especially fruits and vegetables, contain high levels of vitamins and antioxidants that help to protect the body from the effects of free radicals. Free radicals result from the effects of environmental pollution, chemicals and poisons, cigarette smoke and UV rays. They are also instrumental in speeding up the aging process, so keeping free radicals in check and neutralizing the negative effects they have on the body is key.

Spinach, red cabbage, kale, beets, eggplant, basil, Brussels sprouts, and red bell pepper are just some of the vegetables and herbs that provide high levels of vitamins and nutrients that help keep skin fresh, smooth, glowing and beautiful.

Let's Get Physical!

In addition to the right foods, a healthy body also requires plenty of exercise. Exercise can help keep you healthy and beautiful in a variety of ways. Exercise increases blood flow throughout the body, nourishing your scalp and giving your skin a healthy glow. It decreases stress levels, especially the stress hormone cortisol, which interferes with the production of collagen. In addition, exercise helps to boost the production of collagen in the body, enabling your skin to repair itself and fend off wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Exercise also improves your posture, helps you keep your weight controlled, and helps you to sleep better. The result: a more confident and beautiful you.
Love Your Skin

Eating foods that provide generous amounts of antioxidants and vitamins is very important if you want to have beautiful skin. Our skin suffers abuse every day from external factors as well as from oily, fatty foods that we often eat. This abuse can manifest as wrinkles, spots, and dry skin with poor texture and a dull look. Taking care of your skin by eating the right foods - fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and healthy fats - while avoiding over-processed foods and "bad" fats, will help to delay the aging process. Skin can remain healthy, smooth, and bright.

In addition, there are many ways to increase the resilience and health of the skin. Anti aging products, such as collagen supplements, can be added to the diet to provide particular nourishment that may not be available in food in the amounts needed to help the skin.
Energize Your Soul

A large part of true beauty is your mindset. Negative energy brings you down, causing depression, bad attitude, and negativity that is projected out to other people. Now you not only feel bad about yourself, but other people feel bad about you.
Meditation and relaxation techniques help improve your mood and ensure that you maintain a healthy and positive mindset.

Meditation and reflection are the best ways to energize the soul and adjust your point of view to one that is positive. For added benefits, physical activities, such as Yoga and Pilates, can be paired with meditation and relaxation techniques. One of the simplest ways to get rid of negative energy is to have a positive mindset.
Knowledge is (Beauty) Power

An active mind is a hallmark of youth, so keeping your brain stimulated is a key to staying beautiful. Reading on a daily basis, as well as learning something new every day will help keep the brain vital and alert. Meditation is also a way to keep the mind healthy and beautiful for years to come.

Finding True Love for Your Self

Finally, achieving true beauty requires you to have a true appreciation of yourself and what makes you beautiful. Truly loving one's self gives you confidence in yourself, in your achievements and yes, in your appearance.

A balanced, healthy body is a beautiful body. Achieving that goal is easy when you take care to eat healthy foods, get plenty of exercise, feed your mind, and take time to be at peace with yourself.

We all live for the summer months! Nothing is better than going to the lake, beach, or hanging out at the pool with your family and friends on a long, hot summer day. While this is therapeutic to the mind and spirit, it may not always be so great for your skin. And we all know that we’re supposed to wear sunscreen on the regular to help protect our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, but maintaining coverage and reapplying sunscreen is sometimes a task that escapes us while we are having fun. Unconsciously, we may end up with a sunburn, which is a clear indicator of immediate skin damage. This damage accumulates over time, and accelerates the skin aging in all of us, resulting in dark/sun spots (hyperpigmentation), and contributes to other subcutaneous skin structure breakdown that leads to lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Which is a major bummer for our beauty goals.

Aging is kind of a bummer, am I right? 

Even though our mothers gave us the heads-up that things are going to change, we then wake up one morning (approx. age 35 for me) and realize that 1) Things HAVE changed, along with 2) Mom was right…AGAIN . And unfortunately, our skin is usually where we see the effects of aging in our bodies first. From dryness, to volume loss and fine lines, to perhaps even the oh-so-unfair adult onset acne, time has a way of wreaking havoc on our once pristine skin. 

But the great news is, we can reduce these effects by nourishing our skin from the inside, out. And as a registered dietitian, I’m here to provide a few proven nutrition tips and real-life tricks, to nourish your skin to help keep it glowing and healthy for years to come.

Protecting your skin from the sun is important, no matter what time of year it is, but it’s especially vital in the summertime. While you might want to bare your skin in the summer to achieve a beautiful, sun-kissed complexion, UVA and UVB radiation from the sun can wreak havoc on your skin and cause premature aging if you aren’t careful.

UVA rays, which account for 90 to 95 percent of the UV radiation that reaches the earth, penetrate deep layers of the skin and cause tanning. UVB radiation accounts for only 5 to 10 percent of solar radiation, but it damages the epidermis, or surface layer of the skin, causing sunburn.

  UVA rays cause the collagen in your skin to break down at a higher rate than normal aging . They do this by penetrating the dermis, or middle layer of the skin, and lead to the abnormal buildup of elastin. This elastin accumulates and results in the production of enzymes that break down collagen.

The more sun exposure you get, the worse the damage becomes. UV radiation also creates free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that increase the number of enzymes that break down collagen. An excessive amount of free radicals in your body can also weaken your vascular system, cause poor circulation, and lead to deteriorated eye health.
