I love, love, love feeding the skin from the inside out. As much as products, SPF, serums and lotions make a difference, nothing will be more important than what you feed your cells, and most notably how you take care of your g u t.

Our gut is where 70% of our immune system lies, where we metabolise hormones, make nutrients that support collagen health, make anti-oxidants, make detoxifying enzymes, etc. Studies show not only a link between gut health and skin problems from rosacea and eczema, but also how moisturised and hydrated your skin is. The state of your digestion may influence the fatty acid profile of your skin, so gut inflammation can contribute to skin inflammation and a disruption in skin barrier function.

Enter in my new favorite product line - The Beauty Chef - I've posted about them / her before but I finally purchased my first product. HYDRATION.

This bottle is akin to liquid sunshine aka GLOW. Bursting with more than SIX BILLION digestive-balancing probiotics along with prebiotics (just as important), electrolytes, minerals, vitamins and plant nutrients designed to support optimum skin health and general wellbeing The Beauty Chef’s Hydration Inner Beauty Boost is everything your skin + body needs to repair, rejuvenate and glow.


I've only been taking it for a week, so it is too early to tell if I'm seeing a difference. Couple that with a few weeks of major stress (health/work), my skin has been struggling a bit these fast two weeks. This always reminds me that STRESS / LIFESTYLE controls our skin / health in copious amounts and ways. Too many to list actually! I had new breakouts popping up each morning, and I lacked even skin tone, inflammation = redness. Good news is that it's starting to heal, I'm practicing so much self love and I'm learning to stayin the MOMENT. When you're simply in the moment, and breathing you are better able to cope, heal and love during stressful life periods. I've also been eating too much fruit + drinking too much raw coconut water. My skin is so extremely sensitive to sugars, albeit natural.

Enough of my skin, back to the product! This liquid gold was designed to be taken daily as an extra boost of nutritional support to combat dry skin, fine lines and free-radical damage while improving gut health, circulation and oxygenation thanks to skin loving ingredients including Coconut Water, Aloe Vera and Lemon Myrtle! Not only does this shot taste SO, SO, SO good, it's gut and skin healing benefits are some of the best on the market. I'm blissfully in love with the Beauty Chef, and once I'm done with Hydration, I'm going to move onto a few of the others which I have my eye on.

I purchased this at The Detox Market in Toronto, which is the BEST Natural / Green Beauty store in Canada!
