Beauty - More than Skin Deep?
Caring for how you look is human nature - and keeping yourself in your prime can sometimes feel a daunting task. Fortunately, Udo's Oil is a great way to look after yourself - from the INSIDE! Lotions, potions, creams, and treatments all have their place, but making sure that you have a nice canvas to work with makes things a lot simpler.
Udo’s Oil Ultimate Oil Blend is the all-in-one oil that keeps our body looking and feeling great, inside and out! Including this wonder oil in your daily diet is a top beauty tip of many celebrities, including Make-Up Artist Jemma Kidd, who, thanks to her daily Udo's Oil, uses her make-up to enhance, rather than hide her features:
“My philosophy is that beauty starts from within; make-up is a great tool but it’s what you put into your body that really counts. Having healthy skin, hair and nails is important to me and Udo’s Choice is the best product I’ve found for maintaining them. Since using Udo’s Oil my nails are stronger, 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”
Yasmin Le Bon is also a big fan of Udo's Oil. Yasmin recently told The Daily Telegraph how Udo’s Oil forms part of her daily routine stating that she likes to have breakfast with her husband, Duran Duran frontman Simon, and loves very lightly toasted Ryvita with Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend.

Essential Fatty Acids in Udo’s Oil
A happy, healthy glow to our skin comes from nourishing ourselves with a good balance of foods including Essential Fats Omega 3 and 6 – and as they can’t be produced by the body, we have to incorporate them into our diets. We often don’t eat enough of these Essential Oils – leading to dull, dry skin. Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a blend of organic seed oils that provide Omega 3 and 6 in the ideal ratio of 2:1.
Mixed with food or smoothies, Udo’s is a convenient and delicious way of moisturizing your skin from within. Why not try the following recipe or alternatively, visit our recipe page for more delicious ways to enjoy Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend.
