When you take good care of yourself, your beauty from within will really shine. 

We believe that a healthy body is supported with restful sleep, quality nutrition, appropriate movement, hydration, and connection with others. These are the basics of self-care. 

In this blog we will explore the idea of beauty from within focusing on the role that sleep, nutrition, and circulation can play in your everyday beauty routine. So, instead of spending time and money on expensive beauty products to put on your body, look at beauty from the inside out to learn how to support your body to do what it does naturally.

Restful Sleep

Sleeping Beauty is a real beauty, isn’t she? We should cherish sleep a lot more than we do for its spectacular ability to allow the body to recover from everyday stressors like pollution, the daily grind, and mentally challenging situations. These stressors, by the way, age us.

Stress is a normal part of life and can be good for our body when we can regularly recover. But continual stress can affect the whole body, making it difficult for the body to perform as it should. 

  • As we sleep the body repairs itself – allowing us to wake up feeling (and hopefully looking) refreshed. When we don’t sleep well, we often don’t feel well, and we don’t look good either! Here are some helpful tips about rest, recuperation, and sleep.
  • Try to get “enough” sleep (7-10 hours for a healthy adult.)
  • Allow time to rest and get fresh air throughout the day.
  • Support your nervous system with calm activities.
  • Turn off social media 1 hour before bed!
  • Keep phone outside of room and turn WIFI off.
  • Journal, colour, or simple doodle on paper.
  • Stretch and move your body in slow motion.
  • Practice breathing exercises.
  • Practice a short meditation. Wash hands slowly in warm water.
  • Sleep with a calming lavender pillow nearby.

Quality Nutrition

It’s important to eat all the colours of the rainbow when you can! A varied and balanced diet includes a wide variety of fruits and vegetables which bring you important plant compounds, vitamins, and minerals that the body needs to be at its best every day. 

Regarding beauty and our outside appearance, there are some key vitamins that support skin health, as well as teeth and gum health for a glowing smile. For that reason, we will look at vitamins A and C.

The role of vitamins A and C in beauty.

Vitamin A

  1. What is it? Sometimes referred to as retinol, vitamin A can be found in many animal products such as eggs, oily fish, and milk. You can also get vitamin A in a version called beta-carotene which the body can convert to retinol. Beta-carotene can be found in plant-based foods like carrots, sweet potato, and mangoes for example.
  2. How does it support beauty from within? Vitamin A helps maintain normal skin.

Vitamin C

What is it? It is also called ascorbic acid and can be found in many fruits and vegetables like citrus fruits and bell peppers.

How does it support beauty from within? Vitamin C contributes to normal collagen formation  in the body. And collagen is important for the normal function of skin and the normal function of teeth and gums.

Stimulate Your Circulation

The continuous flow of blood brings nutrients and oxygen to all parts of the body, nourishing cells. 

Circulation is not something we think about every day, but it is vital for the body to work well on the inside which allows us to be our best on the outside. How to make it happen?

  • Massage – work on the face, scalp, hands, and body to release tension and encourage circulation.
  • Dry brushing – stimulates the skin and invites blood towards the surface.
  • Fitness – even light walking or stretching gets your blood moving.
  • Yoga – like a massage from within, yoga bends, twists, and moves the body and  brings blood flow into areas that hold tension.
  • Drink water – about 50% of blood is made up of water making it important to stay hydrated to keep things flowing.
