'Nutritious' Beauty with Chef Jackie

Let's Move! West LA Co-Founder, Celebrity Chef Jackie Keller pictured at a Let's Move! event. Trained as Executive Chef at Le Cordon Bleu (Paris); USC degree in Business and at UCLA in Health & Wellness Counseling, Chef Jackie is State Board-Certified as a Health & Wellness Consultant.  She's past-President of LA's Women Presidents Organization. With frequent media appearances she's President/Co-Founder of NutriFit, a healthy meal delivery service for home or office.

Chef Jackie  recently shared these beauty treatments, good enough to eat...

Cornmeal - An inexpensive, effective, natural exfoliant, says Jackie Keller of NutriFit.

“Moisten face, put a small amount of 
cornmeal in your palm. Then gently scrub cheeks, forehead, nose, and 
chin,” she says. “Then follow your usual moisturizing protocol.”

Apple Cider Vinegar“It clarifies the scalp by unclogging hair follicles that hinder hair growth and create build up,” says celebrity hairstylist Ron King, owner of Ron King Salon in Austin, Texas.

To use, mix equal parts water and apple cider vinegar and rinse hair with it.

Avocado“This delicious food is actually a great beauty remedy for dry 
skin because it is rich in natural oils, proteins, and vitamins,” says
 Gina DeBacker, the associate editor for Mother Earth Living.

Make avocado facial mask by blending
 avocado with 1 - 2 tsp honey. Apply to your 
face. Leave on for 20 min. Rinse with a warm washcloth.

HoneyUse for spot treatment to fight blemishes, says Dr. Jessica Krant, a dermatologist and founder of Art of Dermatology in New York.

“Honey has natural moisturizing, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties, so it can help smooth and freshen skin as it’s killing bacteria and helping improve acne,” she says.

Any kind of honey will work, but Dr. Krant says pure manuka honey is the most effective.

Lemon“The acids and the vitamin C help exfoliate,” says Dr. Vicki Rapaport, a Beverly Hills-based dermatologist.

Lemons can also help fight free radical damage to skin. “The more 
you dilute [lemon juice] with other ingredients, the less potent and pure it becomes,
 so just squeeze it on the skin, wash in circular motions and rinse off,” she says.

Olive oil Running low on make up remover? “Simply blot some [olive oil] onto a cotton ball to 
wipe off make up,” Keller says.

“Most cosmetics are oil-based, so a quick light wipe 
will do,” she adds.

Yogurt “Plain yogurt straight out of the refrigerator can be used as a softening, smoothing facial mask,” says Dr. Krant.

“The lactic acid in the yogurt not only works as a mild refreshing chemical peel, but also has anti-inflammatory effects that can help soothe breakouts.”

Chef Jackie says, "I'm available to Let's Move! members for consultations on Nutrition & Wellness ideas & planning.  Call me at  310.473.1989" Thank You!
