Beauty from the Inside Out – Moon Juice Beauty Dust

They say, “beauty starts from the inside out” and that “our skin is an outer reflection of our inner health.” There is no attesting the idea that when we feel good, we look good. Nourishing our bodies with good, clean food keeps us feeling our best and in turn will reflect outwards. As an advocate for clean eating, I can acclaim to the effects food has on our appearance. If I slip up, I can certainly feel it, as well as see it. The idea of a supplement that works internally to enhance our outer beauty, like Moon Juice’s Beauty Dust has a certain appeal to me, but certainly not without reservation. After incorporating the Dust for a few months, I’m kind of psyched at my results…

5 things this week…

Late last week, I headed out to enjoy some much needed time away. Falling into a slower pace, which I have to say was quite hard to shake once I had returned. Most of my days were spent at the beach soaking up sun and swimming in the Atlantic. I ate the freshest seafood and locally grown produce in abundance.

  • Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser – I love this cleanser, it is so gentle yet removes all traces of waterproof mascara. See my review here.
  • Clarins Blue Orchid Face Treatment Oil – I love this oil, it provides incredible moisture and will not cause breakouts. See my review here.
  • Dyptique Eau Duelle – I am very sensitive to fragrances, and often find them irritating, so for me to adore a fragrance a lot. See my review here.
  • Too Faced Eyeshadow in Petals to the Metal – A bronze shade with blue shimmer. This is one of my favorite eyeshadows. The color is truly unique and makes my eye color pop. Review and swatches to come.
