Makeup, face creams and even plastic surgery can only go so far. True beauty comes from within. It's that elusive element that gives you that special something that no one else has. It's the inner glow that draws others to you. Want to learn more about the special recipe that can help you find your own inner beauty? Try a few of these beautifying tips.
Get Plenty of Sleep
There's a reason they call it "beauty sleep." While you're getting your zzz's, your body goes into repair mode. Not getting enough rest can wreak havoc on your skin. Lack of sleep can cause the following:
- Worsens skin conditions like acne and sensitivity
- Increases the breakdown of hyaluronic acid and collagen naturally occurring in your skin, making it lose its bounce and glow
- Causes accelerated aging caused by damaged cells that aren't adequately repaired
- Has a link to increased hunger, snacking and weight gain
An attitude of gratitude is a beautiful thing. Not only does it spread positive ripples throughout your circle, studies show that thankfulness also increases optimism, alertness and enthusiasm while minimizing fatigue and pain.
Worry Less, Focus on Joy More
Did you know that stress weakens your nails, causes skin blemishes and even harms your immune system? Instead of worrying and stressing, find ways to cope with stress while focusing more on a positive outlook. Deep breathing, smiling and focusing on personal mantras to get you through tough situations make you feel better on the inside and look better on the outside.
Support Outer Beauty from Within
Vitamins for hair, skin and nails nourish your body to boost your outer appearance naturally. Have you heard about the positive effects of supplementing with biotin? Wondering which biotin is best? We believe it's the one used alongside other beauty-boosting ingredients like argan oil, collagen, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and minerals. Orb's Hair, Skin, Nails + Collagen gives you an innovative time-released formula that includes:
- 5,000 micrograms of biotin for improved hair, skin and nail health
- 100 milligrams of collagen, which may reduce wrinkles and promote vibrant skin and strong nails
- 25 milligrams of argan oil to soften and hydrate skin
Eat Your Veggies
Leafy greens are an amazing source of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, all of which protect your cells from damage and help keep you gorgeous. Veggies are also helpful for staying hydrated, so eat plenty of water-rich foods and drink plenty of water. Not only will it help minimize your skin's aging process — which kicks in when you're dehydrated — it can also fire up your metabolism, according to Mind Body Green.
Beauty starts from the inside. Eating well, staying hydrated and managing stress are just a few ways to help your inner beauty shine.
