I am honored to be this month’s “gorgeous girl” on Guide to Gorgeous.
MOTHER, FORMER MODEL, ACTRESS AND AWARD WINNING PERSONAL CHEF JULIE ANNE RHODES KNOWS HOW TO NOURISH HER MIND BODY AND SOUL.
“I have to admit that I am blessed with good genes, and living in sun-deprived, damp London for 15 years certainly helped, but I do lead a healthy lifestyle today. I get plenty of exercise walking my dog everyday, and I try to squeeze in some weight, pilates, or Core London training at least 1-2 times a week. My diet consists of mostly fresh vegetables and lean protein. I do have pasta when I want it and the occasional dessert (life is too short to skip the sweet things). I don’t drink or smoke anymore and I try to get as much rest as possible.
I’d say my single greatest beauty tip is drinking gallons of water everyday. Keeping yourself hydrated from within keeps your skin look younger and toxins flushed out. I also swear by an inexpensive line of skin care called Nu Skin that I have been using since the 1980’s. I love the intensive eye cream, moisturizer and their rejuvenating cream.
I live the life I love today. I make the most of my time…even if that means doing nothing. I love having a lazy Sunday in bed reading and watching old movies. I surround myself with friends that make me laugh, and I don’t consider my career work at all, because I love what I do. We don’t get to choose what cards we are dealt in life, but we do get to decide how we want to play the game”
