So you know the term “Beauty Begins Within?” Well it’s no longer a dead statement. It’s time for you to shape up! Being young has its perks! For example unhealthy habits takes time to creep up on you so you don’t always see the effects its has on your body right away. But don’t get it twisted, just because your unhealthy habits have not crept up on you does not mean they never will. I know the cafeteria special of burger and cheese fries sounds quite tempting but just make sure you balance out your diet. Hmmm still don’t believe me? Ok, Let’s do like Beyonce and give that good ol “Countdown” and prove it!

We try to imitate these colors on a day to day basis and they have these vibrant colors naturally! Enjoy them!
4. Convenience- “Always on-the-go” should just be stamped on your forehead. You’re forever getting pulled in 86 different directions from everyone around you. Well, do you know what’s even quicker than “Fast Food?’ Yep, you got it ….“Fresh Food!” Instead of waiting in the drive thru for a McChicken you can snag a tasty plum and carrots out of your fridge in 2 seconds! Hmmm, I’m slowly breaking you down…aren’t I?
3. Skin Care- Prom, First Date, Homecoming, Bon Fire, what do they all have in common?? Let me give you hint…it has to do with being you are what you eat. Well if you were leaning towards having beautiful & acne free skin you were….RIGHT!

2.Calorie Count/Energy- Now I am not by any means encouraging to jump on one of these fly by night diets or start counting calories like you’re taking the SAT math portion of the exam. But I am just saying that fruits and veggies are low in calories and gives you a boatload energy! So it’s time to knock the redbull to the side and go for the fresh fruit smoothie instead!
