Beauty Starts From the Inside Out

Elle emphasizes the importance of taking care of yourself from the inside out. "My beauty routine, which is really a wellness routine disguised as a beauty routine, because I truly believe that when you're well within, it shows on your skin," she said. She takes a "little swig" of an ION Biome to start her morning. She explains that it is important because "it supports your gut," prepping it for other vitamins and supplements.


Use a Crystal Water Bottle


Elle prioritizes hydration, using a special water bottle for her H2O. "I'm gonna fill up my bottle with some water," she explained. "I use a crystal bottle." The concept behind the expensive water bottles is that positive energy is infused into them. 


Lymphatic Drainage Is Important

"So for me, circulation is key," says Elle. "Lymphatic drainage is really, really important. You've got to move those toxins out of your body, it will show on your skin, it will show in the way you feel," she says. One way she does it? With a dry body brush.

Another way she practices lymphatic drainage is in a hot shower. "I have a steam most nights, and while I'm in the steam, while my body is sweating, I'll put oil on it and then I'll use the body Gua Sha, the same way as I use the lymphatic drainage brush."


Gain Weight As You Age

Elle maintains that weight gain as your age isn't a bad thing. "I like to be a little bit more rosy and round, because I think at my age, it's just you know, it's more appealing to look less gaunt, so I've noticed that I've put on weight as I've gotten older and that old adage," she explained. "You have to choose between your a** and your face is kind of true [laughs] because if I'm too thin, it really shows in my face, so I keep it round and rosy and fresh."


Adapt Your Routine As You Age

As you get older, you need to change up your routine, per Elle. "When I turned 50, I started to notice some new changes in my body. I was sugar addicted, sleep deprived, adrenally stressed, and it showed, you know, it showed on my skin, it showed in my body, and I was doing the same things I've been doing since I was 20, and they just weren't working anymore," she said. "I changed my lifestyle and within a few months, people started to say to me, God, you look amazing, and what are you doing, and I realized there were so many women that must've been struggling like I was and I wanted to share it with other people, so that is the birth of WelleCo."
