Spe­cial Beauty Is­sue

Better Nutrition - - EDITOR'S NOTE - Nic o le nbrechka@ aim­me­dia. com

Wel­come to our an­nual beauty is­sue! Start­ing on p. 41, you’ll find our 50 per­sonal care fa­vorites across a range of cat­e­gories. To come up with our list of win­ners, we tested sham­poos, serums, de­odor­ants, tooth­pastes, and many other prod­ucts.

It was hard to nar­row the list to 50— there are so many won­der­ful nat­u­ral beauty prod­ucts on the mar­ket to­day. We chose ones that stand out for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons, from in­no­va­tive in­gre­di­ents such as plant- based stem cells to ad­vanced, eas­ier- to- ab­sorb forms of vi­ta­mins. The best part is that our win­ning picks are made with­out chem­i­cals or other ir­ri­tants. And they ri­val pricey spa treat­ments in terms of eff ec­tive­ness. So you can look beau­ti­ful and still feel good about what you put on your body.

But beauty is far from skin deep. “Skin trou­bles are a refl ec­tion of what’s go­ing on in­side. To get per­fect skin and main­tain it, you need the right bal­ance in­side and out,” says Wendy Rowe, makeup artist, beauty ex­pert, and author of the new book Eat Beau­ti­ful ( Clarkson Pot­ter). “The way to achieve that healthy glow is re­ally very sim­ple— just laugh, ex­er­cise, and feed the skin. A lit­tle bit of makeup never hurt any of us ei­ther.” We agree, Wendy! See p. 62 for Rowe’s Green Pro­tein Smoothie—“Ev­ery in­gre­di­ent in this recipe has skin- benefi ting prop­er­ties,” she says. You’ll also fi nd our list of top beauty- boost­ing foods in this sec­tion.

I’ll leave you with this quote from Jenn Proske: “Love your­self. It is im­por­tant to stay pos­i­tive be­cause beauty comes from the in­side out.”

“Skin­care is im­por­tant, of course, but eat­ing a range of good- qual­ity, skin- friendly foods— sea­sonal and or­gan­i­cally pro­duced when pos­si­ble— will pro­vide the foun­da­tion. This will en­sure your skin has a healthy glow,” — Wendy Rowe, author of Eat Beau­ti­ful
