What does beauty mean to you? Beauty and advertising about beauty is quite literally inescapable, with so much messaging about beauty surrounding us every day, it’s important that we are all able to define for ourselves what beauty is. We thought it was high time that we highlighted what we believe beauty to be - wellness is beauty! Let’s unpack this a little together shall we?
Oftentimes the mention of “beauty” can send our minds drifting to a perfect toothpaste smile, flawless skin, toned tummies and bouncy hair. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with these things at all, it can have a negative effect on our view of beauty and what is beautiful.
Rather than compartmentalising inner health and outer beauty, we take a holistic approach. The goal is to nourish and support your body from the inside, and the result of a nourished and healthy body can result in a beautifully healthy exterior. Not to mention the other byproducts of nourished insides like energy, cognitive function and immunity. When we have energy and feel alive, clear and well, it feels pretty darn beautiful! Oftentimes this feeling is referred to as a “full cup” or giving from an overflow.
Here at Nutra we believe this is the most beautiful thing we ever did see - a woman with a wellness glow. We all know the saying “beauty starts within” and the same goes for wellness; it starts from within. Improving your internal health will result in external beauty benefits.
This notion was a huge driving force behind our holistic approach to our beauty and wellness supporting blends, in particular Collagen Beauty. Collagen Beauty is great for your skin, hair and nails, but also your gut. The connection between the gut and skin is vital for maintaining a beautiful glow. The skin is often a great signpost for what’s happening on the inside, so step one, nourish from the inside. You could say it’s a little more than a gut feeling that one.
Beauty is about whole body wellbeing, not physical perfection. Looking after your health looks like nourishing your body daily, it’s a heart filled with gratitude and thankfulness for your body showing up for you day after day. Looking after your body in a way that suits you is important when it comes to wellness too. So make sure you never compare your journey or wellness routine with another’s, our bodies all need nourishing in different ways.
Remember that nourishment is also found in many different forms. For some it could look like a Collagen Beauty and Super Greens + Reds afternoon smoothie, for others it might be a meditation and morning Matcha Latte and for some it’s that afternoon walk on the beach. We’re all on our own journey, and that’s okay. The goal is never perfection, the goal should be nourishment to bring out the beauty that’s already there, inside and out. Nourish your beauty from within, your way!
