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.
Don’t Go Clay-less
Clay is an amazing from-the-inside-out beauty weapon. Bentonite clay is my favorite full body cleanser (it absorbs 40 times it’s own weight in toxic substances) and one of the key ingredients in Dr Jensen’s colon cleansing shakes (discussed in detail in Guide to Better Bowel Care). It’s also a fabulous skin detox ingredient so I love to use it topically as well. It’s amazing at drawing out impurities so it’s particularly helpful if you have acneic skin. Luckily I don’t but my skin definitely has the tendency to act out when I’m on a juice fast so I love to do a clay & apple cider vinegar mask weekly to keep my skin blemish free (I share the recipe here).

Where do I get that kind of seaweed you have in the picture? It looks delish!
Thanks for sharing your tried and tested beauty tips!
I appreciate your reading suggestions. Been wondering about cleanses and detoxing for a while.
Just what I need!
Oil cleansing? Haven’t heard of that before. Thanks for the idea!
Brilliant…I love all natural anything, this made my day xx
So glad to hear 😉
Great post! In regards to cleansing face with oil, I have very oily skin so anything oil when applied to my face makes it worst. Do you have any tip for oily skin?
You might want to experiment with more astringent oils like hazelnut, castor, borage or grapeseed. I love coconut and avocado oils but they’re definitely more suited to normal/dry skin.
Also, keep in mind that the oil is removed from the face. As I’ve said I personally use a steaming hot washcloth to thoroughly remove the oil. I do several rounds and wrap my face with it to give myself a mini facial steam. There isn’t a trace of oil left after this process. Just clean, glowy skin.
I have the same problem too!
