FIND YOUR BALANCE FROM THE INSIDE OUT by Guest Blogger & Beauty Expert Asia DeMarcos

Hi Superheroes in-training!

B here to talk to you about my motto “Find Your Balance.”This is an important part of life, if we don’t have balance, then we will fall over.

Finding your balance in life is a work in progress don’t fret even Superheros are flawed!

Balance in Love

I was working on a client around Valentines day as she affectionately spoke about her fiance. When I asked her, what was her secret to love and happiness? She said something so brilliant I had to share. She said her and her mate were very much alike, so they had a lot in common.  They were different enough that they could learn from each other, which created their “balance.” I love this, I often think about this in my friendships. How about yours?

Balance in Life

I was watching a documentary over the weekend and a cancer survivor said a poignant phrase. “You are what you eat, drink and think”. These simple words speak to me and hold truth. What do you eat?

You produce new skin cells every 30 days. So we constantly form “new life” and it shows on our skin. The skin is the largest organ and tissue in the body, so why don’t we treat it with more importance? Have no fear Beautasia is here with my top 3 foods for glowing skin.

What do you eat?

1. Spinach I love this green leafy delight. It contains folic acid which is important for many body functions but is the number one mineral that gynecologist recommend while pregnant because its vital for brain function and growth.  Spinach has tons of vitamin C that protects the skin, and every Superhero needs a shield of protection! Finally spinach  also oxygenates the blood. We need oxygen to survive, right?

2.Fish Our friends from the sea are LOADED with omega fatty acids that help fight wrinkles, but MORE importantly this nutrient fights inflammation. Mama Beautasia always says, “inflammation is the root of all evil.” Inflammation starts what’s called the arachidonic acid cascade. This is the breakdown of cells, which I don’t have to tell you is bad bad bad.

3. Brown Rice These little nuggets of joy are low on the glycemic index and are great to keep you trim. But they also have ceramides in them. You will see this ingredient on the label of many skincare ingredients. Ceramides are the cellular “glue” that keeps the skin cells together. With a lack of this you will start to see sagging  and a breakdown in skin. Booooooo

Beautasia note: I’ll admit, I’m not perfect, *SPOILER ALERT* I like to eat french fries every now and then. But you’ll find me the next day juicing or doing extra cardio. Thus creating my balance.

What do you drink?

 Water Good ol H20, natures finest flushes out toxins and hydrates everything inside to keep it moving. Did you know our bodies are 70% water? Depletion of this vital liquid causes…you guessed it, inflammation.

 What are you thinking?

In this age of spirituality vs religion we hear a lot about karma and positivity. Remember The Secret?. No matter what your higher power is, positive thinking will get you further in life. Who wants to be around negative Nancy’s? (Sorry if your name is Nancy. lol). When I walk into my local gym in the morning, I’m greeted (or not) buy a stone face girl. At first it sets me off, because, that’s not the way I would like to start off my day. But I can only wonder what is so bad that she can’t smile?  So when this happens in life. Smile back, you never know what you’re going to get, maybe that person is waiting for someone to be nice to them. Also check out an older blog post for more on this subject of compassion.

Beautasia update: I noticed the stone faced girl at the gym had a new hair cut, I commented that it was cute (it was) and since then she’s all smiles to me. Maybe she just needed someone to pay attention to her? The point is, you never know. So don’t judge a book by it’s cover and always KEEP SMILING.

Thanks for reading my thoughts. I would love to hear how you find your balance. Comment below, and until next time B-happy and healthy from the inside out!
