In today’s Glow Down, we sit down with best-selling author and certified holistic nutritionist Joy McCarthy, the founder of Joyous Health. In partnership with our friends at Genuine Health, we are chatting about everything beauty-from-within, from beauty foods to beauty supplements and every cucumber juice in between. Joy schools Carlene and Jill on realistic, everyday tips on how to improve our immunity, flush out toxins and treat our bodies with essential and often missed nutrients that have the happy side effect of making us glow naturally, too.

Carlene tests Almay’s new Lip Vibes lipstick in Smile

But before we get to that, we have a special Damn Goods segment dedicated to our favourite drugstore buys of the month! Don’t miss the details on Carlene’s bright new lippie-du-jour, as well as her reco for an easy-wearing palette that feels as soft on eyelids as a kitten’s paw. Plus, Jill tests three mascaras and reveals her top choice hitting mass retailers this month.

Some of you may know Genuine Health from their famous Greens + Nourishing Superfood powder, which has been around for 25 years! (Sidebar: Jill has been known to crush a glass containing this stuff in her Monday morning water to wash away the sins of the weekend, ahem.) Big news! Genuine Health recently launched a line of Clean Collagen supplements— very buzzy right now- they’re powders you can add to smoothies and protein shakes, starting at $25 US, $30 Canadian. Well, we’ve got promo codes: visit genuinehealth.com and enter the code BREAKINGBEAUTY for 15% off any Clean Collagen product until March 2019.
