Eat Your Way to Prettier Skin
Author Jolene Hart offers suggestions on how to eat pretty, every day.
In her book, Eat Pretty Every Day: 365 Daily Inspirations for Nourishing Beauty, Inside and Out, author Jolene Hart claims that “healthy vanity” is what drives a person to look and feel their best while showing their “best self” to the world. Like Pretty Mommies, the CHC and AADP’s philosophy is to avoid ingredients that do more harm than they do good. The “beauty betrayers” in foods and beverages defined by Hart wreak havoc on the body by producing inflammation, skin issues such as a lackluster appearance, acne, wrinkles, and age spots.
Pretty packaging doesn’t indicate how well a skincare product works.
As a mother who is pregnant or nursing a child, you know how sensitive your skin is. It’s not enough to use products in pretty packaging that claim to help clear up acne, improve skin texture, and restore the glow you once had. You want to choose skincare products that contain natural ingredients that are effective. Pretty packaging and lovely scents are a bonus not what should sell a product.
Good nutrition and hydration help nourish skin from the inside out.
Since good nutrition and hydration play a role in how your skin looks, it’s important to nourish your body from the inside out. Hart’s book provides a new tip each day that helps you achieve healthier skin through the foods you eat and the habits you develop. With the help of Pretty Mommies products, your goal of clearing up hormonal pregnancy acne breakouts, enhancing the quality of your skin’s texture, and protecting your face and body from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays with pregnancy sunscreen is possible.
Detoxing doesn’t mean drinking only liquids for a week.
In the section of Eat Pretty Every Day dedicated to spring, Hart emphasizes the need to detox from harmful substances. In addition to processed foods and sugary beverages, she suggests giving nontoxic beauty and household cleaning products a try. Removing chemicals from your home environment not only benefits you, it also creates a better world for your baby to live in.
Safer ingredients for pregnant and nursing mothers.
When we created our natural skincare products, we made sure to avoid soy and soy peptides, skin lighteners such as Licorice, Mulberry, and Bearberry, chemical surfactants such as dimethicone, phenoxyethanol and parabens, and sodium lauryl sulfate. By rethinking common skincare ingredients and using healthier options such as vegetable glycerin, Sweet Orange Pulp, and macadamia seed oil-derived surfactants, we were able to create products that are safe for pregnant and nursing mothers to use regularly. If you’re looking to detox your home and skincare regimen, you can start by replacing drugstore cleansers, skin enhancers, and sunscreens with Pretty Mommies products.
In addition to detoxing, Hart also suggests making moments for beauty count through little extravagances. By investing in the best quality items you can afford, you’re telling your subconscious mind that you’re worth it. You create small indulgences to look forward to each day which can have “the most beautifying impact” on your day-to-day routine.
