The 30-year-old actress - who has her 13-month-old daughter Bodhi with her husband Ian Somerhalder - decided to adapt her diet after discovering she was expecting her little girl.

She said: "Suddenly I was thinking about the health and wellness of another human being sharing my body, and I wanted to create the best home in there for her as possible. I remember reading labels on products that I used regularly that said 'not safe for pregnant women,' and thinking, 'That's strange, I wonder why it isn't safe for me now that I'm expecting? What is it in these products that would be deemed okay for me a few months ago, and now they're off limits?'"

And Nikki felt and looked like a "totally different person" after changing her diet.

She added: "I looked like a totally different person. It's amazing what a little inflammation due to unhealthy living can do to the bridge of your nose, or your pores, or your teeth. I have even read false things about myself like that I had a nose job, or veneers. Funny enough, I haven't done a single thing to my face, except changed my lifestyle and reduced my chemical intake."

The brunette beauty now has a new found appreciation for how what we eat and put on our skin affects our bodies.

She told People magazine: "What people don't realise is that it's all connected. What you put in your body affects not just your insides, but [also] your outsides and your mind. And inversely, what you put on your body affects your insides as well."
