beauty from within

Beauty from Within

When it comes to beauty I know one thing is true: no amount of makeup, hair dye, or skincare will make a difference if your body is full of turmoil. If you’ve ever seen a woman that meditates, one of the first things you probably noticed is her glow. That radiance comes from inner peace, not cosmetics. I say this from experience—I’ve never looked better in my life than when I meditated every day for a year.

With this in mind I created the Beauty Free category here on my site. I’m not a beauty expert, but I can share what I know—which is feeling good looks good.

It’s also important to remember that everything we put on our skin, hair, and nails goes directly into our bodies and affects how we feel. Because of this I’ll be sharing natural products, and DIY beauty solutions to help you navigate an industry with products that are traditionally full of toxins and chemicals.

You’ve heard it before but it’s true: beauty starts from the inside out. So my first challenge for you is this: Take an extra 10-15 minutes every morning before you start your day to do something that centers you—yoga, walking, meditating, reading your mantras—and you will see a difference in the way you feel and look.

What centers you?

Be Well,

Jennifer Esposito

    I think you are so pretty AND I always enjoyed watching you in Blue Bloods with Tom Selleck and Wahlberg. So sorry to hear about your suffering. I think I may have Celiac also.

    I will be more sure of course once I get diagnosed.

    Always a Fan, Myra Medina

    I recently saw you in an interview telling us the hurdles you went through to finally find a diagnoses. At first I had no idea what you were talking about. But as you began to go through the list of symptoms you had experienced. You had my full attention because it sounded like you were describing me. I choked back the tears as I listened because I know that suffering and relentless pursuit for answers. I too, went from doctors to specialists only to leave their offices dragging my spirit behind me. I finally found a doctor that really listened and after 10+ years of suffering. At last two weeks ago I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy. Since that day I stopped all wheat, processed foods and dairy. I almost can’t believe the difference in how i feel. My scalp, skin body and mind are all feeling so much better. The best part is knowing that I’m not alone nor crazy because you shared your struggles and your lion heart, for that I thank you so much. Be well and God bless,. Cecy

    Thank you for sharing your website and story. My living free has to include free of not only gluten, but egg, soy (especially soy), and dairy. Most gluten free recipes include eggs (that seems to be a chemistry thing) and is always a science project for me. By the way, eggs wrecked my digestive system more than gluten. Nonetheless, I have to cook from scratch, make my own hair products (oh yeah!! every thing has to be free of fragrance and usually essential oils too). I’d love to share.

    I am now 83 years old. I started with IBS in my 30’s. Later, the dairy gave me trouble. Actually, I feel that I’ve had this from childhood. In my early 60’s my gallbladder was removed. That cause a total upheaval in my gut. That was around 20 years ago. I don’t think doctors knew anything at all about Celiac at that time. I finally found a woman online who put me on the elimination diet. Wow! When I got through with that, all I had left is what I started with; meat, fruit and vegetables. I stayed on that diet for 6 years. Lately, I’ve found a couple of bread substitutes made of starches that work. I can also use some of the foods “once in a while”. It has been an uphill battle, and now in my 80’s it is hitting me regularly and I really don’t know how to control it anymore.

    Thank you Jennifer for your presentation @IIN, which I just finished listening to. What an inspirational story that you are willing to share with others…as I venture to becoming a Health Coach via IIN, both Joshua Rosenthal and you encourage and emphasize the importance to: LISTEN with intent to wholeheartedly help others who are trying to figure out themselves why they feel the way they feel not knowing that the problem may reside in the gut, our microbiome. If I am ever around NYC, will make it a point to visit your bakery. Thank you for your tips via your website and look forward to your newsletters.

    Hi Jennifer, Thank you for all your work for the celiac community- you are such an inspiration!! This may seem silly, but I have been looking for a celiac safe hair dye and was wondering if you had any recommendations for products/salons etc. Thank you again!
