Best Beauty Advice You’ve Ever Received

“Take care of yourself. It comes from the inside and it shines out. If you’re taking care of yourself and you’re hydrating, you’re eating well, that comes out on the exterior.

“I eat lots of plant-based foods. If you can get anywhere close to 80 percent of fruits and vegetables in your diet every day then you’re on a roll… I was lucky because my mom owned a health-food store for a while so I got some inside information when I was young.”

Best Hair Tips
