We all know that true beauty comes from within, but did you know that the "within" part extends beyond happiness and low stress levels—and right to your gut? The gut is your second brain, constantly absorbing and giving out nutrients and information to help your body function based on what you feed it.
In fact, the connection between the brain and gut is key to a glowing complexion. It's easy to forget that your skin is a vital functioning organ. With an average surface area of more than 21 square feet, and composing 6 percent to 10 percent of your body weight, your skin is actually your largest organ.
While cleansers and masks are amazing for the skin, their benefits are limited...to the areas where applied. If you're just focusing on topical solutions, you aren't addressing what's going on inside.
In addition to a good face mask or mist, these clever ingestibles promote healthy skin, hair, and nails from the inside out, and they just may be the crucial step that's missing from your beauty routine.
Here, seven joyful morning rituals to help improve your day (and life). Your skin, hair, and nails will be ever so grateful.
