On November 11 the incredible Jolene Hart took part in our Beauty Beyond the Bottle series and had an honest conversation with Dr. Elsa Jungman about nutrition & your skin.
Jolene Hart is a former magazine beauty editor-turned health coach who has been educating women on the deep connection between diet, lifestyle and beauty for over a decade. She authored the best-selling book, Eat Pretty, and her new release, Ignite Your Light.
We all know the saying, “you are what you eat”, Jolene firmly believes in this and emphasizes what you put into your body directly translates to how you feel. Additionally, Jolene and Elsa spoke about the intricacies of diet and how it affects your skin.
Jolene states that “The food you eat breaks down to become your body, molecule by molecule”, and emphasizes that this point is not made to intimidate and limit us, but to empower us to choose the fuel we give ourselves. Jolene offered this simple acronym to help us all remember how to best choose healthful foods that will contribute to our wellbeing:
C - Colorful Foods, bright colored fruits + veggies represent photochemical benefits. For example, red and orange vegetables have been proven to offer amazing UV protection.
R - Rich in nutrients, meaning actively choosing foods that are dense in vitamins, like a red bell pepper which holds 600% of your daily vitamin C.
A - Anti-Inflammatory, Inflammation is a precursor to many diseases. Certain foods like berries have been proven to reduce inflammation in the body.
F - Fresh, making an effort to eat as many fresh foods as possible can improve your skin health, the fresher the food is, the more potent and beneficial its nutrient content is.
T - Tailored, listening to your body and your needs and responding by choosing certain foods to take out, or incorporate in your body.
This is just a snapshot of the incredibly valuable information Jolene offered on why nutrition is so important when it comes to your skin health. To watch the entire recording, click the link below and be sure to sign up for our future Beauty Beyond the Bottle classes here!
