As you may know, the condition of your skin is not only hugely impacted by the quality and efficacy of the products you apply to your skin, but also the nutritional value of the foods you consume. As our friends at The Beauty Chef say, ‘beauty begins in the belly’.
We spoke to The Beauty Chef Founder, Carla Oates to get her ultimate recipe for healthy and glowing skin.
