Load up on fruits and vegetables
We hear this often from many experts and dieticians. It is no secret that a healthy diet leads to healthy skin and Jacelyn lives by this.
While some may shy away from fruits as they’re worried about how the sugars in them may lead to weight gain, but she believes that natural sugars are necessary for a well-balanced diet and healthy body, so she encourages her followers to not be stint on fruits and vegetables in their diet.
Some fruits and vegetables she often adds to her meals or beverages include eggplants, oranges, strawberries, and avocado.
Detoxifying your gut
Flawless skin is not the only thing Jacelyn possesses. The 47-year-old is also known for her ultra-fit body.
Jacelyn strongly believes that the key to weight loss is a healthy gut. She often takes to Instagram to talk about the benefits of Meridian treatment and detoxification of the gut.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, a Meridian is a channel that “energy” flows through. Meridian treatment includes massaging techniques that unclog blockages along the Meridian system, which in turn flush out toxins stored in our fatty tissue.
She also recommends to steer clear of oily and “toxic” foods as a way to detox the body – the first key step before weight loss can happen.
Minimal skincare and makeup
The former actress only has three items in her personal skincare stash. They are:
- 100% natural oil makeup remover
- Sothys Vitality Cleansing Milk wash
- Body cream that unclogs the Meridian along the face
She believes that as long as you practice healthy living and eating, natural antioxidants is all you need for flawless skin.
The Sothys Vitality Cleansing Milk wash in particular is very gentle on the skin. If you feel that your skin is tight after a wash, this might be a good solution from Jacelyn for you. It has grapefruit extract mixed with essential milk and can remove impurities in your face without any harsh reactions to the skin.
“Everything comes from within” is a common phrase that Jacelyn uses when it comes to recommending products.
Sothys Vitality Cleansing Milk retails for S$68 and is available at Sothys.
Jacelyn mentions that a healthy body requires proper blood circulation. For this to happen, women should have about 55% to 56% water mass and men 60% to 61%.
This is why the wellness coach advocates drinking water over isotonic drinks – a preferred beverages by some who are in the process of losing weight.
She urges everyone to be patient when it comes to weight loss and emphasises on the importance of balance.
Balance is key
A recurring theme surrounding all of Jacelyn’s skincare and wellness tips would be balance.
Throughout Jacelyn’s Instagram posts, it’s not hard to notice that her skincare and wellness mantra is “balance”. She does not believe in eating fewer than three meals a day nor does she believe in only eating raw vegetables for weight loss.
The wellness coach believes that once the body is detoxified, weight loss will come naturally.
Meanwhile, she mentions that eating less can cause many health issues such as hair loss, malnourishment, dry skin, and hormonal imbalance.
If you often suffer from bloating issues or aching muscles, Jacelyn has a solution for you.
She recommends taking a simple rubber ball with spikes and rolling it along your shoulder blades.
The former actress does this to unblock all the Meridian acu-points that are located below the shoulder blades.
Additionally, massaging the deep rhomboid muscles beneath the scapular and the levator scapulae muscle are beneficial as those are common areas that ache.
