Whenever I'm asked to share a personal beauty tip or some favorite secret beauty weapons, I invariably draw a blank for a sec or two. It's just that to me beauty isn't something that's cut off from the overall lifestyle choices I've made over the years. I see healthy skin and bouncy locks as the by-products of the 360 way of life I've embraced, from raw foods and juicing to detox and meditation.
Of course there are really cool products out there that are fabulous beauty-boosting allies (and I'm always on the lookout for the latest and coolest beauty toy). That said, for me the true beauty epiphany (from effortless weight loss to natural head-to-toe glow) has come as a result of some healthy lifestyle choices (considered extreme by some, such as completing multiple 92-day juice fasts and some hardcore liver flushes) combined with simple daily switches that ended up bringing about some really amazing beauty transformations.
Below are 5 simple natural beauty tips that have worked wonders for me.
Clean Thy Colon
Talking about elimination, deep tissue detox through colon and liver cleansing is absolutely incredible in the beauty department. Ridding my body of mucus and toxins on a cellular level has truly brought about the most significant health and beauty transformation. I share in great length my experience and advice for effective colon and liver cleansing here. I also strongly recommend you read (and apply) the principles outlined in Norman Walker’s Colon Health Key to Vibrant Life and Dr Jensen’s Guide to Better Bowel Care. This information has literally been life transforming for me.
