Talk about a star-studded event! Health-conscious celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Fergie, Hilary Duff, Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan, and David Spade all gathered at the London West Hollywood for the Vitamix-sponsored launch of nutritionist Kimberly Snyder’s book, “The Beauty Detox Solution.” Now I know how these Hollywood hotties achieve that glowy skin/rocking bod double punch!
Kimberly’s tome takes the best beauty secrets and nutritional discoveries from her worldly travels (compiled over 3 years of globe trotting) and assembles them into this go-to-guide to obtaining desired health and beauty-both on the inside and out. Her advice: Eat closest to nature-no processed foods. Next, drink her Glowing Green Smoothie (recipe on the bottom of the page) because it is full of nutrients and minerals. Lastly, don’t drink so much liquid during the meal, because it dilutes the hydrochloric acid and enzymes preventing optimal digestion of food. Rather, hydrate in between meals. * Disclaimer-this is Kimberly Snyder’s advice, not mine.
And so, while in the company of all of these gorgeous gals, I had to know: what is your top beauty secret? Fergie revealed to me, “Hydration and juicing-getting those key vegetables into your diet.” Meanwhile Duff relies upon a more cosmetic approach, “I believe in having a serious skin care regiment both morning and night to achieve clear skin. And I exfoliate a lot!”
And newly redhead Barrymore had a more emotional response, “No question-happiness!” she stated with a HUGE smile on her face. Could it be her new rumored boyfriend, Will Kopelman that is keeping her full of joy? Nonetheless, it shows!
