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. We 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.
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.
