What are your go-to tips when it comes to cultivating inner beauty?
As a practicing Naturopath I have lots go-to tips for cultivating inner beauty, but my go-
to tips are:
Having a great morning routine is key for me - especially since I am in the clinic with clients until 7.30pm 4 nights a week. I love to smash out a 5km run/sprint followed by weights and a stretch (usually take me 45 mins). I also incorporate meditating 5 - 10 minutes as often as I can – typically when I first wake up. And of course, a large glass of water first thing with a squeeze of lemon.
Take life in your stride with a big smile on your face.
Green, green and more green – combined with purple, red and orange foods. I consume a high plant based organic diet as these foods are rich in antioxidants and key phytochemicals / nutrients that are essential for inner beauty.
Look after your liver, hormones and gut health - as a Naturopath I know how important it is to also be assessing the bowels and how they are working - aiming for 1 - 2 good evacuations per day is key to glowing skin.
Why is focusing on inner beauty important when seeking beautiful hair, skin and nails?
When you focus on your internal health to enhance your external beauty you are putting your energy where you get the best return. Your external appearance is often a reflection of your internal world. Loving your skin, hair and nails from within means looking after your gut, liver, and hormones. Otherwise your skin may look dull and blemished, your nails and hair become brittle and fragile.
What are the key ingredients to look for when wanting to support inner beauty?
Purify Body Cleanse to the rescue! Let me discuss two of the key herbs that were selected due to scientific clinical trials proving their efficacy. Milk Thistle was included at a therapeutic dose because it is amazing at keeping your liver healthy and balancing out that cheeky night. It helps blemished skin and is amazing for detoxifying stubborn hormones. It is considered one of the most powerful liver herbs; it can actually build liver cells! It has been used for centuries to support liver health and is one of my favourite herbs.
It gives me great pleasure to bring this to the Australian market - Black Rice and Cactus Flower. Intrametica is first to launch this exciting new herbal fusion. The concentrates are used to reduce acne and increase hair growth. This clinically trialled combination has shown to counteract the effects seen by increased testosterone (think thinning hair), reduce inflammation, reduce DNA damage and increase tissue healing (hello beautiful hair, skin and nails).
