  5. To add to #5 :: the secret to beautiful skin starts with what you put inside your body...

    Yes, it is important to nurture our bodies from the inside, out. But think about the lotions, perfumes, deoderants, etc that you use- and the amount of chemicals in them. These toxins are soaked up by your largest organ- the skin. I encourage you to only put products on your body that you would be willing to eat, such as coconut oil. Nurture and love your body, everyone!
