Aveeno Beautiful Change Challenge: HEALTHY FOOD, HEALTHY BODY

97


 

I’d like to challenge the aged old saying, “beauty is only skin deep”.If what we put on the inside of our bodies is a direct result of our skins nourishment, than that saying is not true. GE DIGITAL CAMERAWe all know that vitamin E plays an important role in our skins health.

Our skin is our body’s biggest organ. And, as with any of our body’s organs our skin requires an immeasurable assortment of nutrients to maintain its health. Cosmetics alone may not renew our skin cells to their proper health. Our skin is our most vulnerable organ. It protects our insides from many of the environments dangers, including the harness of the sun. Maintaining our skin from the inside out is vital and should be a “lifestyle” for all of us.

This week the Aveeno Pure Renewal challenge is about “Healthy Food, Healthy Body”. Last week I was challenged to shave time of my daily beauty routine and it’s been a wonderful blessing. This week’s challenge is all about beauty from the inside out.aveeno logo

While keeping up with last week’s challenges, this week I’ve added some dietary changes to my lifestyle.  By simply changing the way I eat, drinking more water and exercising more, my skin is getting it’s nourishment from the inside out.

While our skin is our biggest organ, our body is mostly made up of water, averaging 57% of the body’s weight. Keeping our body’s hydrated is very important. So, for this week’s challenge I’ve added lots of fruits and veggies to my diet and am now drinking three bottles of water a day. Now, I know it’s supposed to be eight-8oz glasses a day, and I’ll work up to that. The important thing is to “start” and I’m well on my way to a healthier me inside and out!

It’s springtime and what a perfect time to get healthy, shave off a few extra pounds and look and feel you best. To this week’s Aveeno Beauty Basket I’ve added apples, grapefruit, avocados and lemons and limes to put in my water. A few healthy consumables along with my Aveeno Daily Moisturizer have me feeling totally beautiful from the inside out.

Now, it’s actually healthy to wash your hair every day. AVEENO® PURE RENEWAL lets you renew your hair to its naturally balanced state daily. Unlike ordinary shampoos, these sulphate-free formulas have Balancing Seaweed Extract; bringing hair back to its naturally healthy, most balanced state with each wash, for beautifully healthy-looking hair.

I need to take your advice and be drinking more water. I know it is important but I have a hard time with it. I can do it if it’s flavored…just can’t seen to if it’s not. I love veggies and sometimes just eat them for a snack, not as much fruit unless it’s red grapes.

I have been doing the same thing. Exercising almost everyday, adding more fresh foods to my diet and trying to eliminate as much processed foods as possible. If you can Spring clean your house why not do a Spring cleaning on your body? And it has been helping loads with my skin and hair too 🙂

I agree I never drink just water alone and could drink it. I tend to have dry, itchy skin and I know the lack of water is the reason

I can tell a big difference in my skin when I eat well and when I eat junk, so I agree that it’s not only “skin deep”

I have the hardest time with drinking enough water AS well!! I found that going to Sonic in the morning and getting a Route 44 ice water is the best way to counter this!! Don’t know why. I think because I loved crushed ice!! I love Aveeno and used it on all of my kids!

I have alway taken vitamins with protection for skin, your skin is the first thing that shows aging and if we don’t take care of it, it will show up sooner than later. I use Aveeno and eat healthy foods and it does help

We have started drinking massive amounts of water to improve our health. We invested in a water cooler.

Having a red headed child, Aveeno is the only thing she can use. It has great products & does work!

I don’t find it hard to drink plenty of water daily except for during the winter. The cold temperatures make me want hot beverages like coffee.
