We’re incredibly proud of NAA members and the unique ways that they apply Nutritional Aesthetics® in their personal and professional lives. It’s our goal to support them and share their wisdom by highlighting their stories with you in a periodic ‘Member on a Mission’ feature. Our latest featured member, Renee Tavoularis, of Well Within Beautyhas successfully brought together skin health and wellness with her coaching practice and new product line.

Renee has built a successful career as a marketing and sales executive at luxury Swiss beauty brand, La Prairie. After 20+ years, Renee and her co-founder, Lynne Florio, decided to start anew, creating a business that spoke to their passion and pursuit of well-being and becoming the healthiest versions of themselves. Renee’s journey led to her health coach certification at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®, resulting in nutrition becoming one of the 3 pillars of the recently launched wellwithinbeauty.com – an online destination for plant-based solutions for skin health and wellness. It houses well-edited and expertly curated intel across Beauty, Nutrition and Lifestyle as well as showcases their luxe line of plant-based skincare called PLANTED IN BEAUTY.

We spoke to Renee about the role that Nutritional Aesthetics® plays in her business and her approach to skin health:


What excites you the most about the Nutritional Aesthetics® Alliance?

Renee Tavoularis:

As fellow wellness seekers, we fully subscribe to NAA’s mission of advancing the integrative approach to skin health. Today’s consumer knows the connection between the products you put on your skin and your personal nutrition and lifestyle choices is integral to your skin health and overall well-being. The NAA is a supportive community of like-minded individuals – a space and a place where we can all draw education, services and support – so, we continue to inspire and bring forth more awareness to our consumers and readers.


How do you apply Nutritional Aesthetics® principles to your work?

Renee Tavoularis:

At WELL WITHIN, we believe in a sustainable holistic approach to beauty and wellness. Nourishing your skin is an integrative process inclusive of natural organic skincare products, optimal nutrition and mindful lifestyle choices. When these holistic practices converge, you will be ideally positioned to attain optimal skin health and overall well-being. 

Well Within Beauty is designed to cut through the clutter and confusion and to offer easy to digest content on plant-based skin health, recipes, nutrition, and lifestyle, products (via our PLANTED IN BEAUTY collection) and services (namely, health coaching) to help you become Well Within your skin, mind and body.

Our PLANTED IN BEAUTY skincare products are created with the belief that wellness and beauty are inextricably linked. Our comprehensive skincare line is derived exclusively from natural sources, containing the highest level of organic ingredients, while remaining completely free of chemicals and toxins. We are proud to hold several 3rd party certifications (Ecocert for Cosmos Organic Standard, EWG VERIFIED, Leaping Bunny and Vegan Action) providing product integrity assurance and further evidence of our commitment to uphold sustainable practices.


Please complete this sentence, and elaborate as much as you wish: “For optimal skin health, I wish people would do more of ___________________, and less of ___________________.”

Renee Tavoularis:

For optimal skin health, I wish people would do more of embracing healthy aging, even celebrating it (no matter what decade you are in) and less of fighting aging or shying away from a number or decade – aging is a part of life.

We strongly believe that a new perspective on how to approach aging and wellness can go a long way when trying to look and feel better. We consider ourselves and our customers wellness seekers, and we’re all on our own individual wellness journey. The journey is constantly shifting, changing, evolving. We welcome those changes and embrace all that comes with it…that means instead of fighting aging, to embrace healthy aging — even celebrate it. That’s why we encourage ourselves and our customers to be age-embracing instead of anti-aging.

We are so grateful to Renee Tavoularis for being a dedicated member of the Nutritional Aesthetics® Alliance!
