Amy Wesson, mother of four, gets her enviable glow from her family as well as her dedication to great skincare. She's already instilling healthy habits in her children: "It requires role modeling and a bit of education. I believe the age-old wisdom that our children will do as we do, not as we say."
I love the fresh air and a good long walk. I teach parenting classes and greatly enjoy working with families and helping them discover their strengths and what gives them balance.

How to share healthy habits with your kids
When you have kids, it's a really nice time to show them all the different foods that are out there and that it's OK to taste and try new things. As a vegetarian, I find that I feel better when I eat this way. I tell my kids, "If it grows from the ground and doesn't need anything else, then it's probably going to be good for you and is a good way to take care of yourself from the inside out, instead of only taking care of the outside; you need to do both."
On feeling beautiful in your own skin
When I was younger, I never truly believed that beauty was more than skin deep, but the way we approach the world and others is what makes us beautiful. You shine from the inside out.
