Get a healthy, glowing complexion with with these simple tips.
1. Daily Greens
“Super greens like barley grass, wheatgrass, alfalfa, spinach and spirulina are all nutritional powerhouses that help to balance the acidity in your skin and the alkalinity in your blood. And when that balance is achieved, your skin holds moisture and your cells function properly, giving you that alkaline glow, even in the middle of summer.” Dr. Laubscher, PhD.
We believe nurturing your skin from within is the secret to random breakouts and pesky heat rashes that seem to appear during the hot summer months. We also know it’s not always possible to access all the nutrients we need to achieve this. Which is why 2 tsp of WelleCo SUPER ELIXIR Greens daily is your summer saviour.

3. Get a little sweaty
