What we feed our bodies has a significant impact on our skin.
Each skin-friendly Bestow recipe avoids heating and congesting foods (which can aggravate skin conditions) and uses soothing, cooling alternatives instead. This is essential if you want to overcome skin problems like acne, rosacea, dermatitis or dull, congested skin.
The good news is that all Bestow Recipe books avoid all heating and congesting foods, so all of the hard work is done for you!
Instead of focussing on what you can’t eat, you can enjoy what you can eat.
Certain foods can heat your skin, causing it to appear reddened and sensitised. These foods are called ‘vasodilators’ and they heat your skin by increasing the blood flow through your fine capillary system. Coffee, alcohol, spicy foods, chilli, oranges and strawberries are all common culprits.
If you are prone to red or sensitive skin you need to avoid ‘heating foods’. Instead, bestow your skin with strength and vitality by choosing cooling, soothing alternatives. Bestow Within I provides a comprehensive overview of heating foods and their skin cooling alternatives.
When the oil (sebum) in your skin is flowing as it should it plays an important role in protecting your skin and keeping it strong, supple and smooth. However, if your skin has a tendency to congest, congesting foods in your diet will cause the sebum to thicken and block your pores, resulting in bumps and breakouts.
If you suffer from acne, you need to avoid congesting foods. Common culprits are ice-cream, nougat, chocolate, cheese, milo and protein powders. Bestow Within I provides a comprehensive overview of congesting foods and their skin smoothing alternatives.
Bestow Within I & II contain a range of tasty, nutritious recipes for everyday use.
The first recipe book in the Bestow ranges provides easy ways to help you incorporate Bestow Beauty products into healthy everyday recipes. It includes basic recipes for good health like smoothies, salad dressings, fermented food for gut health and nutritious meals for everyday use. It comes with a comprehensive introduction, which introduces the concept of eating for skin health and provides information about heating and congesting foods and their alternatives.
A helpful complement to Bestow Within I, this book offers a wider repertoire of tasty skin-safe recipes. It contains lost of warming, nutritious meals for the cooler months and some of our favourite recipes!
If you have a sweet tooth, the Bestow Treats books will provide you with delicious alternatives to skin-damaging treats filled with refined sugar and congesting saturating fats. Each nutritious sweet in the Bestow Treats recipe books are refined sugar free. They are flavour and nutrient rich and just one or two servings are very satisfying. When you have healthy treats on hand for when cravings strike, bad habits begin to fall away.
SAVOUR brings to your kitchen a nutritious and tasty collection of one-dish savoury meals which celebrate organic, locally-grown, seasonal vegetables. Vegetables are the unsung heroes in our modern diets and we are on a mission to change that. These recipes will show you how easy it can be to put a tasty and nutritious meal on the table based on seasonal vegetables.
