Beauty directly reflects overall wellness and health within the body. The nutrients we eat affects cell growth (hair, nails, skin), therefore, it’s important that we do, and eat, what’s best for maintaining healthy cell rejuvenation.
Ingredients for The Glow:
Vitamins A, B, C, E

Foods highest in antioxidants include, berries, raisins, prunes, kale, spinach, broccoli, beets, and sprouts. Imagine antioxidants as your cell’s personal body guard and all the nasty free radicals floating around in our environment as the enemy attacking you. Well, antioxidants stand up to the enemy and take the hits themselves, protecting your skin and leaving you beautiful. Whether you apply them topically (cream) or orally (berries), consuming antioxidants should be made a daily habit!
