With all eyes on you, it’s no surprise that every bride wants to shine the brightest on her big day. After finding the perfect dress, perfect shoes and perfect hairstyle complete the look by adding a natural glow to your skin.
A happy, healthy glow to your skin means taking some time out from all that wedding planning to work on your nutritional beauty regime. Start three to four months prior to your wedding day by making sure that you drink plenty of water, eat lots of green foods and consume those all-important Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Omega 3 and 6. These “good fats” aid healthy skin by keeping the proteins in our pores soft and helping our skins cells to retain water, stopping them from drying out and flaking off – essentially moisturising the skin from within.
Dr Udo Erasmus, author of best-selling book “Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill” and a leading expert in the field comments:
“Lack of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Omega 3 and 6 constitutes the most neglected aspect of a beauty regime for healthy, radiant skin. The result of an imbalance of EFA’s in the skin is dryness, dandruff, eczema and psoriasis-like inflammatory skin conditions, acne, cracked heels and other skin damage”
Getting the EFAs into the diet in advance of your big day is key to achieving beautiful, glowing skin. One of the best ways of doing this is through a balanced seed oil blend containing a 2:1 ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6. Look out for blends that contain flax, sesame, and sunflower oils as these can provide an optimum combination.
Dr Udo developed his own blend; Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend, which is fast becoming the ultimate beauty must-have for models and make-up artists around the world, including professional make-up artist Jemma Kidd, who comments:
“Since using Udo’s Oil I no longer have dry skin and I rarely get blemishes – my concealer has virtually been made redundant! Now I can use make-up to enhance my features, not mask them”
Udo’s Oil easily mixes into most foods and drinks. Just pour over hot food, mix in with your favourite smoothie or drizzle over salad and reveal your skin’s natural beauty. This blend of organic, cold pressed seed oils, rich in the essential fats Omega 3 and 6 can be purchased from independent health food stores and online.
