Younger Skin Starts In The Gut

This week I have covered healthy eating and wearing the right colors so our complexions look younger.  Well, I am reading a bookwhich discusses one of the best beauty secrets for women over 50... the importance of healthy eating in order to confront premature aging...

"The gut is the control center of the body, the place where health and death begins.  Whatever happens in the gut will show up in the skin and dictate the health of your entire body."  Dr. Nigma Talib has written a four week program in this book to identify and eliminate skin aging triggers like gluten, wine, dairy and sugar.  

She discusses eating clean and removing chemicals in YOUNGER SKIN STARTS IN THE GUT.

I am early in my reading but wanted to share it with you right away as I am learning a lot.

That is a dairy free smoothie pictured and the way I am currently learning to eat.  Find the book HERE.

Have a fun Friday!
See you Saturday for WOULD YOU WEAR IT?


  1. I think there's a lot of truth in this. I experienced a big difference in vitality when I switched to increasing more natural foods. I did a few blogs on it in January and February on my style blog. I was stunned by the change.

  2. I have been reading more and more about this and due to my own health concerns have had to follow a healthy diet.

  3. Everything starts in the gut... Have a good weekend!

  4. I've just started reading Eat Dirt, which is also gut-related. I truly do believe in a lot of these ideas. I'm curious to hear how the book and the ideas work for you.

  5. Perfect timing Pam! This is a book I definitely want to read!
    Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  6. I've often heard "it all begins in the gut" and it's true. The U.S. food supply doesn't default to healthy options in the same way as in the rest of the world. Instead, we have to play defense.
