EAT PRETTY | THE BEAUTY CHEF
Did you know it only takes 24 hours to see a noticeable difference in your skin after a change in diet? For better or worse, what we eat becomes us - our hair, skin, muscles, and even emotions. Every mouthful carries an important message to our body and psyche: am I helping or harming my health?
If you're like us, then you've already lost sight of your New Year's Resolution (what was it I promised to give up again?!), and big changes are often too difficult to begin or sustain. While we try to eat as healthy as we can, we too are tempted by the last cookie in the office, we often forget our vitamins on the counter, our 32 oz water bottle is collecting dust, and our idea of exercise is stretching out - on the couch.

All this has begun to add up and we're noticing now more than ever that not only do we feel sluggish and constantly bloated, but our skin is just parched - dry as the desert! and it needs some TLC fast.
The one thing we do keep up with, year after year, is more of an interest than a habit: we love trying out new healthy recipes. Whether its a new dessert or a new salad, a far-too-decadent-to-eat-the-whole-pot-but-I-do-it-anyway pasta, or a light smoothie, we're always eager to try out new flavors, new methods, and new substitutions for our less-than-healthy cravings.

So we'd really like to use this love for cooking to benefit our poor skin (because Lord knows how hard it is to drink water when there's fresh coffee in the break room!) and trick ourselves into healthier habits.
Enter The Beauty Chef, Carla Oates, who believes "the first step to healthy, radiant skin is balancing digestive health. Skincare follows." The Beauty Chef makes not just topical skincare, but inner skincare too - powders and concentrates rich in bio-fermented probiotics and exceptional vitamins and minerals to elevate our skin's natural ecosystem.
From protein powders to collagen boosts, The Beauty Chef is not just supplements you take by the spoonful and then forget after a week or two. Each of their formulations can be combined with real food and still function at optimum strength. This means we can cook to our heart's content, and simply add The Beauty Chef to feed our skin and bloated tummy exactly what it needs to thrive.
