HEALTHY LIVING PHILOSOPHY
“Your skin is a window into what’s happening inside your body. And it’s not just about what you put on the outside, but what you put on the inside that matters. Proper digestion is a big factor—it determines whether you have clear skin or if it breaks out. The key to clear skin is simple: Consume as many greens as possible, with every meal—breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Juicing is a great way to make that happen. What you’re doing is oxygenating the skin and helping it look its best.”
SECRET HEALTH TIP
“I dry brush every day before I get into the shower. Long strokes with a body brush toward the heart helps stimulate circulation and the lymphatic system, maintain elasticity, and exfoliate dead skin. I don’t start a day without it.”
