Ever wonder what makes a beautiful person so full of beauty? I personally believe it is a combination of many factors (health, nutrition, character, attitude & more), but in this post we will be focusing on nutrition.
We are made up of vitamins & minerals and it is their presence in our cells that support and represent our greatest health & beauty. Certain vitamins and minerals beneficial to the skin can be found in natural food sources we eat (internal application) and organic skin care products we use on our bodies (external application).
Definition of beauty: A combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, esp. the sight.
“Your skin is the fingerprint of what is going on inside your body, and all skin conditions, from psoriasis to acne to aging, are the manifestations of your body’s internal needs, including its nutritional needs,” says Georgiana Donadio, PhD, DC, MSc, founder and director of the National Institute of Whole Health in Boston.
Conclusion: Being healthy = being beautiful.

5 nutrients essential to beauty & where to find them:
Vitamin A: influences the creation of cells, provides serious repair for dry or sun damaged skin; also excellent for treating acne; found in carrots
Vitamin E: is an anti-ageing and healing vitamin that promotes skin elasticity and smoothness, found in tomatoes
Ester C: is a non-irritating and easily absorbed version of vitamin C. It will protect the skin, help wounds heals and work to increase collagen production, found in rosehips
CoQ10: is a fierce antioxidant to fight free radical damage and prevent the aging of the skin, found in spinach
Alpha Lipoic Acid: is one of the strongest antioxidants known, it enhances the benefits of vitamin C & E, protects lipids and water levels and may even repair damaged cells, found in evening primrose oil
These ingredients can be found together as a boost of vitamins & minerals in Eminence Organics products, known as Biocomplex. Our cells recognize plant DNA and these vitamins & minerals function to support our most natural beauty, while chemicals are foreign invaders to the cells and can create inflammatory processes that lead to aging, allergies & sensitivities, hyperpigmentation and breakouts.
So enjoy your fruits & veggies on your plate and in your skin care products and shine as the brightest beauty with a boost of these 5 essential nutrients!
