Holistic beauty incorporates a whole-body approach to skin, hair, nails, and wellness. In its true essence, the foundation of beauty is derived from being healthy. Our appearance reflects our health and our health is a reflection of beauty.

What we consume and what we apply to our skin are deeply interconnected facets of our overall health and beauty. True wellness begins with nourishing our bodies with wholesome nutrition and selecting skincare products that work harmoniously with our skin's inherent vitality. By minimizing exposure to toxins in our daily routines, managing stress levels, and cultivating a positive mindset, we can radiate beauty from the inside out.

Holistic beauty aims for long-term results rather than quick fixes.

Implementing holistic beauty practices involves integrating a comprehensive approach that considers both internal and external factors. By nurturing the mind-body connection through practices like stress reduction, prioritizing nutrition, opting for holistic beauty products, engaging in regular physical activity, ensuring adequate sleep, and embracing mindful self-care rituals, you can create balance and support healthy aging.

As a certified nutritionist and licensed cosmetologist, I am passionate about teaching individuals how to look and feel their best with my holistic approach to beauty. Watch my television appearance discussing my journey to becoming a holistic beauty expert.

Implementing stress-reduction techniques meditation, deep breathing exercises, spending time in nature to manage stress levels, and getting daily sunlight exposure are all important aspects of holistic beauty.

#5 Holistic beauty focuses on supporting gut health - optimization of beauty nutrients

Read an article I wrote for Emidihealth: Signs of gut imbalance and food to improve gut health

Maintaining a healthy gut is vital for both wellness and aging gracefully. Surprisingly, about 90% of serotonin, a neurotransmitter essential for mood regulation, is produced in the digestive tract. The gut plays a significant role not only in our physical health but also in mental and emotional balance, which can directly impact our perception of our appearance.

Additionally, a healthy gut is essential for properly absorbing the nutrients from the foods we eat. Even if we consume a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, an unhealthy gut can hinder the absorption of these nutrients. This can take a toll on our skin, hair, and nails, affecting their appearance and contributing to premature aging.

Therefore, prioritizing gut health is paramount for maximizing the benefits of a nutritious diet and promoting overall vitality, beauty, and graceful aging. By ensuring optimal gut function, we can enhance nutrient absorption, support healthy skin, hair, and nails, and ultimately, radiate a youthful glow from within.

To address potential gut imbalances, it's crucial to work with a trained professional who can order specific lab tests to assess gut health accurately. This proactive approach allows for targeted interventions to restore gut balance, optimize nutrient absorption, and promote overall well-being, helping us look and feel our best at every age.

#6 Holistic beauty focuses on embracing and honoring aging

Aging is a beautiful gift of life that not everyone gets to experience, yet so many of us fear it. As each year passes we hyper-focus on the lines on our faces and changes to our appearance, but why?

Most women are inundated with the message that a fresh, youthful face is more valuable than an aging one. Aging is commonly associated with a negative connotation that tries to devalue a woman's presence and relevance in society. Those that are wise enough can see through the veil of deception and clever marketing, but unfortunately, as much as we try to ignore it, it can still take a toll on how we feel about ourselves and our life's journey.

I want to offer a different perspective.

#7 Holistic beauty focuses on living authentically

Nothing is more beautiful than a woman who isn't afraid to be herself. A woman who stands tall and embraces what makes her unique is absolutely gorgeous. We are not all supposed to look and act the same. It is our differences that make us beautiful. No one has your eyes, nose, or lips. No one has your heart. Don't change them. Instead, change your mindset.

Instead of following societal beauty standards and molding yourself to look like the next beauty trend, tune out the noise and embrace your unique beauty. Learning how to honor ourselves instead of changing ourselves is the beginning of a lifelong journey of self acceptance.

#8 Holistic beauty focuses on practicing kindness to ourselves and others

True beauty comes from the heart, not our outward appearance. Some of the most beautiful people have a heart of gold and regularly share their kindness with others. Operating from a place of compassion can be life-changing for those who need it. You never know what someone is going through and how a simple smile, gesture, or listening ear can help them.

You can't photo shop an ugly heart

Kindness can awaken the hearts of others and bring more love and light into their lives. It also strengthens our love for ourselves and creates the foundation of beauty. Be kind, and you will always look and feel beautiful.

One of my favorite books about kindness is: Be Nice (Or Else): and what's in it for you by Winn Claybaugh.

The book was required reading during my days in cosmetology school (Paul Mitchell the School). It is one of those books that everyone needs to read, it really teaches you about the importance of being a nice person and how common habits can actually be perceived as unkind. I highly recommended you give it a read!

#9 Holistic beauty focuses on quality sleep for an inner glow

Quality sleep is often hailed as the fountain of youth, a precious elixir freely available each night. During sleep, our bodies engage in a remarkable process of repair, rejuvenation, and detoxification, working tirelessly to restore balance and vitality. This nightly restoration not only promotes physical health but also contributes to a more radiant and youthful appearance. Unfortunately, many individuals grapple with sleep issues, whether it's difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing restful sleep.

However, by learning and implementing a few simple techniques to improve sleep quality, you can unlock the transformative power of restorative sleep, helping you look and feel your best at any age. From establishing a calming bedtime routine to creating a sleep-conducive environment and prioritizing relaxation techniques, optimizing your sleep can profoundly impact your overall well-being and enhance your natural beauty from within.

Its benefits extend far beyond mere calorie burning or muscle toning, encompassing a profound impact on overall well-being. Engaging in regular physical activity not only boosts feelings of vitality and well-being but also encourages a radiant glow from the inside out.

By prioritizing movement and incorporating enjoyable forms of exercise into your routine several times a week, you can uplift your spirit and support aging gracefully. Whether it's dancing, hiking, yoga, or simply taking brisk walks in nature, finding activities that resonate with you ensures that exercise becomes a source of joy and empowerment rather than a chore.
