Our much-loved #30DAYSTOGLOW Challenge is back for another year! For the month of September, join us on a journey to luminous skin and a healthy, happy belly by taking a teaspoon of GLOW™ every day. Below, how to maximise your glow for inside-out radiance…
It’s not news that a diverse diet full of colourful veggies, fibrous fruits and plenty of H20 is key to a gorgeous, healthy-looking complexion. But did you know that GLOW Inner Beauty Essential™ contains over 20 Certified Organic wholefoods that promote skin radiance and rejuvenation? These wholefoods are supercharged using our unique fermentation process called Flora Culture™, which makes the nutrients in the formula more bioavailable, while also creating a broad-spectrum probiotic. Pretty nifty, right? Below, we break down some of our hero ingredients:
No surprises here—berries are the star of the edible skincare world. They contain antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which studies show are linked to some pretty impressive skin-protective properties like increasing elastin and hyaluronic acid. They’re also rich in vitamin C, which is imperative for the building and maintenance of collagen. Our fave? The exotic Maqui berry, an antioxidant-dense superfood that grows in South America.
At this point in the wellness game, you’ve probably heard of spirulina and chlorella. These sought-after green smoothie ingredients are super nutritious and possess some well-documented anti-inflammatory properties. But there’s one type of microalgae that trumps them both: Dunaliella salina. Rich in nutrients and naturally high in antioxidants, it contains more than double the mineral content and at least three times the beta-carotene of spirulina—the antioxidant that converts into vitamin A, which is necessary for hair growth and can help improve acne and the appearance of pigmentation.
QUEEN GARNET PLUM
Bursting with vitamin C, this sweet superfruit supports collagen synthesis, which in turn, contributes to healthy, plump-looking skin. It’s also a rich source of health-boosting anthocyanins, containing far more than the average supermarket plum.
This bitter spice is rich in phytonutrients (natural chemicals produced by plants) like curcumin that have strong anti-inflammatory benefits. Inflammation contributes to a whole host of skin problems (think dryness and acne) and also breaks down collagen and elastin. Read: premature aging.
These little power parcels are full to the brim with skin-loving goodness like vitamin E, zinc and B vitamins. In fact, a ¼ cup serving of sunflower seeds contains 34% of your RDI of vitamin E and 32% of your RDI of selenium, a mineral essential for normal immune function as well as the maintenance of healthy hair, skin and nails.
