Udo’s Oil is featured on femalefirst.co.uk as their supplement of the week! Udo’s Oil is the natural option to brighten yourself up through the dreary summer months, and look your very best for those all-important summer dates, weddings and holidays.

We all know that well-oiled skin tans better and burns less but don’t just rub that oil on the outside of your skin – spread it on the inside too! Adding healthy oils to your diet will help to keep your skin moisturised and protect it from drying out in the sun, which in turn will allow you to enjoy a longer, lasting tan.

One of the best ways of getting healthy oils into our diet is through a balanced seed oil blend containing a 2:1 ratio of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Omega 3 to Omega 6. EFAs supply our skins cells with the oil they needs to retain water, preventing them from drying out and flaking off  - essentially moisturising the skin from within.

An added benefit is that with a sufficient amount of Omega 3 (ALA) in your diet you should find that you are able to stay out in the sun longer before burning. This is important as the sun is one of our main sources of Vitamin D – so some sun exposure without blocking it with lotion can be beneficial. Oiling the skin in this way does not protect you from over exposure to the sun but does mean that you can stay out longer without protection and receive the Vitamin D that the sun offers

Try Udo’s Choice Ultimate Oil Blend which is rich in both Omega 3 (ALA) and Omega 6 (LA) and  is seen as the natural choice for getting the EFAs into our diet that are so important if we are to develop a beautiful, smooth and long-lasting tan this summer. Udo’s Oil easily mixes into most foods and drinks, just be sure never to heat the oil as this will destroy the delicate EFAs.

As summer is approaching, what better way to enjoy the benefits of Udo’s Oil than to mix it in with a pina colada tasting smoothie recipe - but without the alcohol of course.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple, peeled
  • 115ml coconut milk (tinned)

  • Handful of ice

Udo’s Choice is also delicious with porridge, fruit yoghurts, used as a salad dressing, mixed in with soups or pasta or stirred in to fruit juice. You can purchase the oil blend from independent health food stores and online from £10.99.
