Grow Your Glow, Part 2: Digestion

Grow Your Glow, Part 2: Digestion

In this 4-part series you’ll learn to amp up your baseline glow, taking your skin to the next level of healthy and gorgeous…

Your gorgeous glow: you know it’s there, but there are some days (weeks even…) when it feels like it’s playing hard to get. A stressful time, a few too many indulgences, a stretch of weather that leaves you feeling blah — these routine life situations influence the way your skin behaves, and in turn what you see in the mirror.

If you missed week 1 on nutrition that will grow your glow, check it out here. This week, we look beyond your meals into the way your body receives food.

Digest to Grow Your Glow

It’s simply not enough to eat for your beauty — if you’re serious about skin glow, you also need to support your body in digesting your food well. The population of bacteria residing in your digestive system (which outnumbers your cells 10 to 1!) has major influence over how well you can utilize the beautifying nutrients in your diet. Cultivating a healthy balance of bacteria in your digestive system is step number one toward great digestion; adding a probiotic supplement and fermented foods to your daily diet will help you do that. But there’s even more that you can do to make sure mealtime — and its after-effects — run smoothly.

First, get in the habit of sipping water about 15 minutes before you begin a meal. If you’re at a restaurant, this could simply mean drinking the water on your table while you peruse the menu. But elsewhere it could require a bit more planning and thought before diving in with your fork. A pre-meal drink of water hydrates your digestive tract and prepares your body for food, improving your assimilation without diluting the digestive acids in your stomach that work hard while you’re eating.

Next, adopt a relaxed mealtime mindset and aim to be present at mealtime. No one sets out to eat a meal under stress, but it happens often — most often as a result of multitasking at mealtime. Shut off the TV, put your phone across the room, and savor your food, alone or with company you enjoy. Take a few deep breaths before you eat, or say a mealtime mantra, like those found in Eat Pretty Every Day. Besides loving your food more (and preventing overeating), this practice gives your body the chance to enter a parasympathetic ‘rest and digest’ state where it can devote the proper energy and resources to fully breaking down each bite you take.

Ready to feel and see greater glow? Incorporate these two powerful strategies into your diet, and you’ll be amazed at their glow-boosting effects. Check back next week for two more key ways to grow your glow!

Grow Your Glow, Part 1: Nutrition

Grow Your Glow, Part 1: Nutrition

Beauty and health coach Jolene Hart is back to share with you her tips on aligning your diet with the change in season…

Your gorgeous glow: you know it’s there, but there are some days — weeks, even — when it feels like it’s playing hard to get. A stressful time, a few too many indulgences, a stretch of weather that leaves you feeling blah — these routine life situations influence the way your skin behaves, and in turn what you see in the mirror.

In this 4-part series I’ll teach you how to take your baseline glow and amp it up, taking your skin and your glow to the next level of healthy and gorgeous. We’ll start with nutrition (kind of the foundation for everything glow-y, in my book), and spend some time looking closely at digestion, energy and hormone balance. I promise to leave you smarter and better-prepped to grow your glow, in good times and lackluster times, too.

Nutrition to Grow Your Glow

Eating well is the number one way to put your best skin forward. If you’re still questioning whether or not food matters to your skin, know that it does, in a big way. When I first shifted from my role as magazine beauty editor to that of beauty-focused nutrition coach, my skin had a pretty nice glow, most of the time. I was eating well to support my skin, with plenty of fresh, whole, colorful foods. But over the years I’ve fine-tuned my approach and found that there are even more ways to support your skin not just to be clear, but to be radiant.

First, use more herbs and spices in your cooking. Yes, they’re delicious flavor-enhancers, but there are so many other levels upon which these kitchen staples support your skin. They’re some of the most powerful foods in the world. Their concentrations of antioxidants blow other anti-aging beauty foods like berries and dark chocolate out of the water. Humble cloves, for example, pack 22 times more antioxidants than blueberries! Of course, you’re eating them in much smaller amounts, but be sure not to underestimate their nutritional powers. Herbs and spices also naturally support digestion (the better you digest and assimilate your food, the glowier your skin — stay tuned for next week), and fight off unwanted bacteria and viruses that can compromise your health. I challenge you to find new ways to spice up your smoothies, stir-frys, soups, dressings, and whatever else you’re cooking.

Next, grow your glow by regularly (read: daily) eating foods that specifically support the health of your liver. What’s so important about this organ? Your liver cleanses toxins from the body and supports healthy elimination, an essential for skin that is not only clear, but radiant and thriving. Eat more beets, which cleanse and purify your blood and promote lymph flow (another important mode of waste removal). Eat more cruciferous vegetables (think cauliflower, broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, radishes) which help produce a powerfully liver-detoxifying compound in the body. And drink lemon water with fresh lemons, which help your liver produce helpful enzymes and aid in digestion.

Incorporate these two powerful strategies into your diet, and you’ll make major strides to optimize your skin glow. Check back next week for two more key ways to grow your glow!

(When It’s Too Hot) In the Kitchen: Vegan Grilled Caesar Salad

(When It’s Too Hot) In the Kitchen: Vegan Grilled Caesar Salad

High summer = high heat = high time to get out of the kitchen for some outdoor cooking…

Serves 2.
Ingredients
Dressing:
15 oz garbanzo beans (in liquid, no salt)
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp capers
1 tbsp caper brine
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt
Black pepper
Salad:
1 head Romaine lettuce, split in 2 lengthwise
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup reserved garbanzos
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
1 tbsp capers
1 tbsp toasted pine nuts
1 loaf gluten free focaccia (or bread of choice for croutons)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil for croutons
Salt
Black pepper
Method
Dressing:
Reserve 1/2 cup of garbanzos for garnish.  Purée rest of ingredients in blender till very smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust salt and pepper. (There should be extra dressing to use at a later date for crudités or more salad.)
Salad:
Rub both pieces of halved romaine with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper and, on a very hot grill, char flat sides of lettuce to create crosshatch marks.  *The most important part? Keep lettuce crisp and cold.  Grill marks will add contrast in texture, temperature and flavor. Garnish with as much dressing as desired. Add tomatoes seasoned with salt, capers, toasted pine nuts and garbanzos. Top with croutons. If you choose to make croutons, thinly slice bread of choice, brush with olive oil and grill till crispy.

Bite-Sized Beauty Breakthrough: Sakara Life’s Skin-Enhancing Chocolates

Bite-Sized Beauty Breakthrough: Sakara Life’s Skin-Enhancing Chocolates

Upgrading your skin care routine has never tasted better…

Can eating chocolate change your complexion? You’d be hard-pressed to find a skin care fanatic who hasn’t heard the old school stigma of chocolate provoking acne, but a more mindful approach to the confection’s recipe is finally changing its reputation. “It’s not chocolate that’s “bad” for your skin — it’s the additives like dairy, trans fats and processed sugar,” insist Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle, co-founders of Sakara Life, the organic meal delivery program beloved by the fast-paced fashion and film set from NYC to LA, which has racked up health-focused fans like Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson along the way. Driven by the demand for nutritious snacks with a holistic focus, Danielle and Whitney recently expanded their Clean Boutique of healthy options to include the ultimate dream indulgence – Beauty Chocolates.

The duo considers their recipe, which is made with raw, dark cacao, “one of the most potent sources of age-defying antioxidants on earth,” and sweetened with coconut sugar that offers a naturally lower glycemic index (to prevent harmful blood sugar spikes and crashes), a healthy addition to any strategic beauty routine. “Skin is very important to us,” they enthuse, citing Whitney’s struggle with cystic acne as one of the main propellants of launching the brand. “We are big believers in the idea that true beauty comes from within — and starts with what you eat! Nutrition is the only way to get to the root cause of your issues, whether that’s dull skin, wrinkles or breakouts (not to mention low energy, mood swings, poor sleep, or digestive problems…). Also, we love chocolate, of course, so we wanted to find a clean, plant-based, functional ingredient that would make this ritual even more beneficial.”

The bite-sized sweets are designed to boost ceramides, the naturally occurring lipids in skin which deplete over time, leading to a myriad of beauty woes from fine lines to a lackluster complexion. “Beauty Chocolates are made with 100% plant-based phytoceramides, clinically proven to improve skin’s texture in two weeks with daily use,” Danielle explains. “You can moisturize the top layer of skin with creams and serums, but the phytoceramides in Beauty Chocolates replenish the cell barrier and stimulate collagen from within, helping to seal in moisture, plump and smooth wrinkles, and boost your glow!” And with just one gem-shaped delight delivering a daily serving of skin-friendly ingredients, it’s primed to be the most indulgent addition to your nightly skin care routine — which isn’t lost on the Sakara girls. “It’s like a facial and dessert in one bite.”

Soho Pop-In: Nutritional Counseling with Raj Barker

Soho Pop-In: Nutritional Counseling with Raj Barker

If you’re in NY on 6/21, consider stopping by our Soho pop-up and take in a seasonal health class with Raj!

As a holistic nutritionist, my aim is in identifying and treating the root cause of a problem as opposed to its symptoms, taking into consideration a combination of diet, lifestyle, work-life balance and relationships, to understand its true nature.

Below I’ve broken down three of the most common complaints I receive from clients and, in turn, provided simple tools you can weave into your everyday routine to put yourself back on track to feeling your best.

Adrenal fatigue

Symptoms: Waking up tired even after a long night’s sleep, relying on coffee to wake up, feeling alert right when it’s time to go to sleep, irritability, weight gain, decreased libido, depression.

What to do: Limit coffee to 1/day and drink it by 10am. Cut back on processed foods, especially sugar. Implement a nightly routine (shower-tea-meditation-essential oils-read-lights out) turn off screens 1 hr before bed, aim for the same bedtime every night. Focus on resting, relieving stress via yoga, walking, dancing, whatever you find works – part of the treatment is discovery.

What to eat: Easily digestable, nutrient-dense foods in their most natural form. Think foods with good fats and high fibre like coconut meat, olives, avocado, raw nuts and seeds, as well as seaweeds like kelp and wakame, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts.

Supplements: Magnesium before bed to help relax (follow instructions on packet), ashwagandha to increase stamina and relieve stress (start with 1 tsp in the morning, add to tea, smoothies, etc).

Acne

Symptoms: Red or white lesions on the face, neck, chest, back and tops of arms.

What to do: Simplify skin care routine, use products with minimal ingredients, drink plenty of filtered water, sip hibiscus and dandelion tea. Get plenty of sleep and manage stress.

What to eat: Reach for whole, fresh foods in their most natural state. Reduce processed sugar, alcohol, packaged or high trans fats foods. Feed the gut with good bacteria — think sauerkrauts, kombucha, kefirs, small servings of whole greek yogurt, and eat plenty of clean protein such as fish, eggs, spirulina, legumes, beans, raw nuts and seeds.

Supplements: Probiotics to replenish gut microbes, milk thistle to assist in liver detoxification (be wary if pregnant or breast feeding). B6 to help sebum excretion, zinc to support skin cell repair.

Bloating

Symptoms: Swollen belly, frequent gas, discomfort in the abdominal area.

What to do: Focus on chewing your food at every bite, observe reactions to trigger foods like gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol — consider you may have food sensitivities or allergies. Ensure legumes and beans are adequately soaked before cooking (at least 24 hrs).

What to eat: Eat easily digested foods in their most whole form. As mentioned above: Chew! Chew! Chew! Rather than drinking your food, focus on meals instead of juices and smoothies for a few weeks. Eat fruit before a big meal as opposed to after, as it will digest most quickly.

Supplements: Digestive enzymes (follow instructions on packet). Drink 1 cup of warm water BEFORE meals with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar.

Wellness Encyclopedia: Vitamin A + Mad Hippie Serum

A key player in healthy bones, eyes, immunity and healthy skin…

I used to believe that if I ate enough carrots, I’d be able to see at night like a cat. I also believed that if I consumed enough apples, I’d never have to see the dentist again. Sorry, kid. Reality bites sometimes, but as much as the truth broke my (carrot and apple-loving, dentist-hating) 5-year-old heart, colorful fruits and veggies do play a vital role in keeping our bodies healthy, happy and functioning properly (vision and teeth included). Filling our plates with as many vibrant, natural ingredients as possible ensures that our meal not only tastes incredible, but that our bodies are getting the nourishment they require via an edible rainbow of goodness. Diversity on your plate translates to nutritional diversity for your body, allowing it to pull in all the vitamins and minerals it needs to keep moving, chief among them vitamin A. A key player in healthy bones, eyes, immunity and healthy skin, vitamin A is a nutrient we could all stand to get to know a little better. Beneficial internally and when applied to your skin via a serum like Mad Hippie’s Vitamin A Serum, vitamin A has the power to turn back time, erasing sun damage, boosting cellular turnover and making skin radiant again. Read on to learn more about this vital antioxidant and how it can help nearly every part of that gorgeous body of yours.

What is it? A powerful antioxidant and fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin A plays a major role in a host of bodily functions such as brain function, bone density and immune function. When used in skincare, vitamin A can reduce the signs of aging, fight free-radicals, and repair damage done by the sun. There are two variations of vitamin A: beta carotene and active vitamin A. Found in colorful fruits and veggies, beta carotene needs to be ingested and converted into retinol by the body to be put to use. Active vitamin A is the more bio-available of the two variations and does not need to be converted to retinol first. Active vitamin A can be found in a variety of sources and is the star ingredient in Mad Hippie’s Vitamin A Serum. Individuals with leaky gut and/or gluten sensitivity could experience vitamin A deficiency, so it’s a good idea to give attention to those issues to ensure proper absorption.

Benefits of vitamin A: Whether you’re using it internally or on your skin, vitamin A benefits the entire body. For internal use, it’s best absorbed when ingested in the form of — you guessed it — bright and delicious colorful fruits, greens and other vegetables. It’s most bioavailable in bright orange and dark green foods, like carrots, spinach, winter squashes, kale, apricots and nectarines. Eating plenty of vitamin A will aid in everything from building strong bones to healthy cognitive function to clear vision, and powerful antioxidant properties ensure free radicals are swept clear. These same antioxidants benefit skin function by encouraging cellular turnover, improving skin texture and tone, reducing the signs of aging and healing damage caused by too much sun.

How do I use it? Since this rejuvenating vitamin is readily available in so many fruits and veggies, the best way to up your ‘A’ intake is to eat the rainbow. Cabbage, apricots, nectarines, greens and carrots are all excellent sources of vitamin A, and good news — they’re all delicious. To reap the internal benefits, be sure to fill your plate or bowl with as many colorful ingredients as possible to ensure you’re getting plenty of vitamin A and other essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Your entire body will thank you!

To harness the external benefits of this powerful antioxidant, try a vitamin A-enriched serum, such as Mad Hippie Vitamin A Serum. This gorgeous serum reduces wrinkles, reverses damage from the sun and enhances cellular turnover thanks to vitamin A and coffee berry. Did I mention it smells incredible? No? Well, it does. To use it, simply massage into freshly-cleansed skin every other night until your skin adjusts, following 10 minutes later with moisturizer. Once your skin has adjusted to your new routine, you can begin using your serum nightly to reveal fresh, naturally beautiful skin.
