You have all heard the popular saying “Beauty starts from within.” Well, in this article we are going to take this phrase very literally. You would be surprised the impact food and your overall health can have on your skin.
But does this mean you can eat your way to beautiful?!
I would certainly like to think so. Carla Oates, the health conscious beauty from Bondi Beach – Sydney is the pioneer and innovator behind The Beauty Chef. A range of beauty supplements, that claims to enhance your beauty from the inside out.
Glow Powder is their primary supplement. Which is a product I was lucky enough to try thanks to Nourished Life . Glow powder is made from naturally fermented wholefoods and probiotics – containing 23 super foods, which the skin requires to appear glowing and healthy. These include several antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids cultivated from Mother Nature herself. These 23 super foods are found from fruit, veggies, grains and legumes and are aimed at balancing the health of your digestive system.
I really do believe there are strong links between what we eat and the health of our skin. Three key dietary related concerns I saw often when treating client skins were:
- Overconsumption of dairy products is a leading cause for congestion around the chin, jaw and nose.
- Smoking increases blackheads, particularly around the lips and nose. As well as premature aging concerns!
- Low fat dieting is linked to dull, lifeless skin and overall dehydrated skin.
You may well be wondering – How can I incorporate The Beauty Chef into my daily routine? Easy.
Smoothies are a creative and delicious way to add various fresh fruits, veggies and Glow powder into your daily routine. Just add 5g of the powder to each morning smoothie! Another fun way to incorporate Glow powder into your daily life is through adding the supplement to a healthy and yummy snack.
