Since January I've been working with a holistic nutritionist to improve my overall health. One of the biggest changes we've made has been to increase my fat intake. For years I viewed fat as the enemy, and I've loved having not just permission but a prescription to incorporate this vital nutrient into my life. After seeing the positive effects of piling my plate with avocado, butter, coconut, and more, I wondered what would happen if I slathered my skin with healthy oils too. Result? Talk about glowing!
Lucky for me, beauty oils are having a moment, so there've been plenty of options to sample. Favorites include the latest from Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics, a Vitamin B Cleansing Oil that exfoliates with fruit enzymes and smells like a tropical vacation; and Royally Flawless Facial Oil, which my favorite natural beauty blogger mixes up at home and sells on Etsy. In the short time I've been using them, these products have gently done everything from clear up my blemishes to decrease the fine lines that had begun to form on my forehead. Now that I've gone fat I'm never going back!
