Ingestible skincare by The Beauty Chef
That’s right, you read it right. The first of its kind is The Beauty Chef, launched by Carla Oates in 2012. This product is made with prebiotics, probiotics, berries and marine collagen – and promises to give your skin a new lease of life, without slathering gunk all over your face morning, noon and night.
The rise of holistic healthcare has become unprecedented over the last few years, and now its skin care’s turn to jump on the wagon. And it makes sense. Your skin is an organ, just like your kidneys, liver, bladder – the only difference is we can see it. And if you wanted to look after any of your other organs you would ingest something wouldn’t you? I doubt many people would try rubbing cream onto damaged lungs.
Creator of The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates believes that beauty begins in the belly and that our digestive system plays a large part of the way we look and feel. The stomach contains 70% of our immune system and includes detoxifying enzymes and nutrients. These are the things that can help leave us with blemish free skin. If you’re lucky, you won’t have ever experienced a breakout after living off junk food for a week, but for a lot of people this happens whenever they look at a plate of greasy food. The same goes for drinking – there is a reason why people say water is the best drink for you. It flushes out your system of any toxins, including the ones in your skin.
This doesn’t mean you should or have to stop putting your cream on, if you want to. The Beauty Chef is simply a beauty booster. Think of it as a protein shake for your skin. You can still do all your normal skin care routines, but drinking this blend of natural ingredients will help your skin from the inside out. And you may find that after drinking it for a while, you won’t need to use such strong formulas in your moisturiser or foundation.
Unfortunately, little research has been done into the effectiveness of this product – but experts say that the best way to look after your skin is to have a balanced and healthy diet. Regardless of the small amount of science to back this up – people are loving this product. Ingestible beauty boosters have grown by 177% in the last quarter, and people don’t buy things that don’t work.
Whatever your thoughts on The Beauty Chef are, if you’re looking to change up your tired old routine, this is definitely a good option to consider when it comes to organic skin care products.
