For me, beauty is timeless. It is the combination of health and happiness, which means that people can be beautiful at any age. My grandmother was 97 years old, when I took this picture. Her joy of life shines through her eyes and her smile. This beauty is somehow ageless.
What Makes you Beautiful
What makes you beautiful is how you take care of your body as well as your emotional well-being.
Everything we ingest, be it food, emotions or skincare, has a profound effect on our overall health. Our face and especially our eyes, our skin and our facial expressions project this combined well-being.
Nutrient-rich foods have a high nutritional value as well as a unique vibration. Picking an apple from a tree has a higher vibration than the one that is wrapped in plastic and has been stored for days or weeks.
Selecting foods from small, organic farming will make a big difference in how your body absorbs this food. Processed foods often have very little nutritional value and are packed with sugar, sugar substitutes, starches that convert into sugar and bad quality fats such as hydrogenated oils.
These kinds of foods may provide your body with calories, but they lack important nutrients that allow your body to regenerate and prevent premature aging.
Emotional wellness is deeply interconnected with our daily experiences, as we ingest emotions on a daily basis and the way we do this has an enormous impact on our emotional as well as physical wellbeing. Processing and expressing emotions adequately is key for inner peace and meaningful relationships with the people around us.
Negative emotions, thoughts and habits have an incredibly detrimental effect on our health over time. Some of the most common ones are self-shaming, people pleasing instead of addressing your own emotional needs, unhealthy boundaries with tech, addiction to stress and creating situations where you are constantly busy.
Very often these patterns stem from a lack of self-connection and not knowing how to set boundaries, which creates a sense of unrest and disconnection. To fill this void or silence the feelings of uneasiness, we often indulge in excessive screen time or create a schedule that is so stressful that there is no time for your real feelings.
If some of this rings true, don’t shame yourself, it’s not your fault. Many negative patterns are created in childhood and as a society that does not teach emotional wellbeing to children and adults, we carry them with us until we decide to actively work on our emotional growth.
Bioavailability of ingredients plays an essential role in skincare, as your skin is a mirror of your well-being and it needs to be nourished from the outside as well as the inside. Providing your skin with natural nutrients that it can recognise is crucial to strengthen its organ functions of eliminating toxins, fighting free radicals and regenerating the cells. Aggressive skincare products and treatments may create a short-term positive effect, but weaken the skin in the long term.
It is essential to touch your skin with the utmost gentleness to avoid skin trauma and to connect to your skin with self-love. Fast, rubbing movements have a negative effect on the protective layer of the skin and the interstitium organ. Soap or syndet cleanser negatively affect the skin’s microbiome and can lead to irritation, moisture loss and infections.
Nourish your skin with the same ingredients you eat: minimally processed, organic plant ingredients that your skin can recognise and absorb. Such high-vibrational skincare products, along with a nutritious diet and emotional wellness, will result in youthful and radiant skin at any age.
In conclusion, beauty is timeless as it is a reflection of your inner radiance, confidence and well-being that come from nurturing your body, emotions and spirit throughout each step of your life.
Dedicating time for self-care and selecting the best nutrients is the key to unlocking your inner radiance and allowing your true beauty to shine.
