It might sound like a cliché, but it’s true: REAL beauty, the kind that makes you feel like your best possible self (meaning confident, strong, powerful, inspired, and prepared to turn all your #thoughtstothings) comes from within. And, that kind of beauty starts with what you eat. We’ve spent years creating a program that cleanses, nourishes, and fuels the body on a molecular level, so that you can radiate true beauty from the inside out. Without a doubt, the plant-based diet we’ve designed—filled with hydrating, colorful fresh produce, healthy fats, and nutrient-dense superfoods—is our #1 beauty secret.
Just as we honor our bodies at mealtime by slowing down and experiencing our food with all of our senses, we appreciate our beauty routines for the way they encourage us to show ourselves some well-deserved self-love. Also, just as we take extra-special care to put only the best-quality stuff in our bodies—think organic, whole, unprocessed plant foods—we also focus on using clean beauty and skin care products. Because what you put ON your body is as important as what you put IN your body. The following are beauty rituals that my partner and I turn to each day, which are an integral part of getting our signature glow.
