I get a lot of questions about what kind of makeup I wear. I have to be honest, I don't own any makeup (which can be a bit inconvenient when I do want to fancy myself up lol). But if you are familiar with my story (and if your not, we'll get into those details later) you know there was a period of time when I was struck by so much illness it was apparent all over my body (and face for that matter). I avoided going out, I tried to cover the blisters on my face with loads of uncomfortable makeup just to go out in public, went vegan & gluten free, conjured an internal fear of eating all sorts of healthy foods, put myself into a small box and closed the door... I felt suffocated and debilitated. Well if you look at me today I bet you wouldn't guess that was ever me. There was a time I longed to be one of those girls with clear skin and balanced health. And then I became one! I am living proof that we hold more power than we think. I shifted my limited lifestyle, opened myself up to a world of healing and wellness, incorporated real foods without sacrificing, banished food fear, introduced superfoods and herbs, created rituals around self love, ditched the coverup, and improved my digestion. Today I wake up everyday excited to show my face, proud of my story, blessed to teach others, open and ready to experience life in the raw. We all have the ability to heal and overcome obstacles. I truly believe there is always another way of approaching an imbalance. I want each and every one of you to know you can live as your most radiant, confident, and natural selves.💞 P.S. if your looking for natural makeup tips and the best beauty advice my go to girls are @prettyfolkonline and @lipstickandwellness seriously, these ladies know the scoop on natural beauty products! 📸: @tomwhalenphoto
As told by my skin doctor, Jennifer Newell N.D., elastin in the skin starts to decline at the age of 21 and collagen loss starts at 25. Dehydration accelerates this process because the enzymes required to maintain and repair collagen and elastin require hydration. 🍂 Elastin is responsible for elasticity and allows the skin to return to its normal shape when stretched or contracted. Collagen keeps the skin plump and strong. The loss of these proteins shows in the development of lines and wrinkles as well as sagging and deflation of the skin. 🍂 Additionally, dehydration leads to inflammation which further ages the skin. Chronic inflammation is known as "InflammAging". The inflammaging process involves a highly complex chain of events, by which acute inflammation gradually gives way to chronic, or silent, inflammation. 🍂 In case, you’re wondering, this is EXACTLY why we created The Putty. It works hard to infuse your skin with moisture while fights back against inflammation + aging. It’s exactly what your skin needs as we transition into Fall 🍂
Miso soup like you'd regularly make it. Buy the mellow white and follow the directions on the package then .... wait for it.... spaghetti squash and a squirt of siracha. What a great bowl of goodness. Perfect addition to salmon and veggie dinner 👌
Dinner with a side of fermented sauerkraut! Fermentation can preserve food nutrients and even make them more digestible. Fermented food also packs a probiotic punch which is great for your gut and overall health! #elevays#fermentedfoods
