One of the most common nutritional deficiencies to affect your skin is a lack of essential fatty acids (EFA’s). Unfortunately our modern diet provides too little of these precious fats and because our skin is the last organ to receive nutrients from the blood, this makes it highly likely your skin is deficient. EFA deficiency impacts directly on the health and beauty of your skin as well as weakening it protective ability, increasing your rate of environmental ageing.

Luckily, a lack of EFA’s is also one of the easiest deficiencies to correct which is why we created the Bestow Beauty Plus Oil! It’s our foundational product for great looking skin and general wellness. Read more about EFA’s here >>

A breakfast smoothie is a delicious way to kick-start the day nutritionally and super-easy to make. This smoothie recipe includes protein to sustain your energy throughout the morning.  Naturally, it includes the Twin Skin Essentials (Bestow Beauty Oil and Bestow Beauty Powder) and you can also add any other Bestow blends you are using.

White beans are an amazing way to provide your smoothie with a creamy texture and a protein hit. Adding protein to a smoothie allows your body to stay full for longer and using beans is a skin-friendly way of doing this. Many protein powders and other protein products that are used in smoothies are congesting to the skin and just 1/4 cup of white beans provides you with the protein you need without causing you to break out. Creaminess is essential to a tasty smoothie and we find avocado is one of the best ways to do this as well as providing a serving of healthy fats for your body, keeping it full for longer. The chia seeds in the smoothie are bound to keep you full providing the body with fibre to help with gut health.

RECIPE

250 ml of liquid (such as water, coconut water, almond milk or coconut milk)
1/4 cup of cannelini beans (drained)
1-2 medjool dates (or 2 teaspoons of honey or rice syrup)
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 of a ripe avocado (optional)
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Oil
1 dessertspoon of Bestow Beauty Powder
1 good handful of spinach leaves
1 teaspoon of chia seeds
6 fresh mint leaves (optional)

Blend well, enjoy!

Cacao powder is a great way to get that chocolatey taste and feeling of indulgence with the added benefits of providing your body with nutrients found in cacao such as magnesium and antioxidants for skin health. Creaminess is essential to a tasty smoothie and we find avocado is one of the best ways to do this as well as providing a serving of healthy fats for your body, keeping it full for longer. Tahini, which is made from sesame seeds, also contributes to the creamy texture and gives the body a calcium boost. The chia seeds in the smoothie are bound to keep you full providing the body with fibre to help with gut health.

RECIPE

250 ml of liquid (such as water, coconut water, almond milk or coconut milk)
1.5 tablespoons of cacao powder
1 tablespoon of tahini
1-2 medjool dates (or 2 teaspoons of honey or rice syrup)
1/2 frozen banana
1 tablespoon of cacao nibs
1/4 of a ripe avocado (optional)
1 tablespoon of Bestow Beauty Oil
1 dessertspoon of Bestow Beauty Powder
1 dessertspoon of Bestow Be Cleansed
1 teaspoon of chia seeds

Blend well, enjoy!
