Want to glow with confidence on your big day? While topical skincare has its place, for a deeper radiance, you need to get to the source of the issue. The Beauty Chef products help give your skin the perfect dewy glow from the inside out. Because the most important skincare is the one you drink. Check out the best skin-boosting tips for a pre-wedding glow.
Our bathroom counters are jam-packed with products that we lather onto our skin. However, what we eat, drink and ingest is just as important. If you're ready to get the best skin of your life, it's time to take a magnifying glass and look at where most skin problems start: the gut.
How Does The Gut Affect The Skin?
Our bodies have a direct link between the gut and the skin. It’s called the gut-skin axis, and the way the two communicate with each other is through the gut microbiome.
Do you know people with rosacea or acne are at least 10x more likely to have gut issues? If you have a skin issue, there's a good chance there's some imbalance in the gut too. These symptoms can often show in the form of a rash, skin irritation or sensitivity.
Picture a garden. Your gut is the like the soil. If it's full of rich nutrients and the right bacteria, flowers will bloom. So metaphorically, if you focus on creating the right soil for your gut to thrive, your skin will flourish too.
3 Tips For Glowing Skin & Gut Health
When it comes to your wedding, it’s normal to want to walk down the aisle with bright, luminous skin. While some things are out of our control (stress can unfortunately cause breakouts) with a bit of planning, you can lay the groundwork so that your skin is in its best shape ever come your big day. The key? Start by focusing on your gut with these three easy tips.
1. Eat Fermented Foods
Fermenting foods increases their nutritional value and also helps your body better digest the other foods you eat with them.
The fermentation process creates natural probiotics and makes the nutrients more bio-available, meaning your body will be able to absorb more nutrients from your meal. From a beauty perspective, this ensures your skin is getting the nutrients it needs to repair itself, maintain good elasticity and produce collagen.
Load up on apple cider vinegar, coconut yoghurt or kefir, cultured dairy products, kimchi, kombucha and miso.
2. Consider A Gut-Nourishing Beauty Supplement
Want to double down on your new gut-nourishing protocol? Consider taking GLOW™ Inner Beauty Essential—a daily probiotic supernutrient formula designed to promote healthy glowing skin, hair and nails, increased energy, improved immunity and gut health.
GLOW™ is The Beauty Chef’s first and most-loved product. Since 2009, over one million people have improved their health and achieved a lit-from-within glow by taking one teaspoon of this berry-flavoured formula every day.
What makes GLOW™ so special? It’s supercharged with an exclusive GUT5Y™ probiotic strain and Flora Culture™ fermentation process which increases the potency and bioavailability of the wholefood ingredients.
3. Boost Collagen Production
Collagen production naturally declines as we age, causing skin to lose its bounce and leading to more fine lines and wrinkles. While this is a natural part of the ageing process, you can supplement your body’s collagen stores by taking an ingestible supplement.
Sip your way to wedding-ready skin with The Beauty Chef's DEEP Marine Collage Powder. Rich in 100% clean marine collagen peptides, along with Bioavailability Factors™ (the digestive enzyme bromelain and the GUT5Y™ probiotic strain), it is your new must-have for plump, firm skin.
