Studies show the key to beautiful glowing skin is a natural approach. Here are the questions you ask WelleCo most frequently about how to glow.
DOES SLEEP HAVE AN IMPACT ON GLOW?
The outer or top layer of our skin comprises tightly packed dead skin cells, which are constantly shed throughout the day. During deep sleep, the skin’s metabolic rate speeds up and many of the body’s cells show increased production and reduced breakdown of proteins. This is a good thing as protein is the essential building blocks for cell growth - the skin needs this deep sleep each night to repair itself which is a major contributor to glow.
WHY TREAT SKIN WITH SUPPLEMENTS?
Skin is the largest organ of the body and is an average size of 2 square feet for an adult so this mighty organ, like all other organs, needs to be nurtured from the inside. Only applying a topical treatment treats the superficial layer or the epidermis area of the skin. For longer lasting and more effective results you want to treat the dermi and hypodermis and this is best done internally.

WHAT IS YOUR EMERGENCY GO-TO FOR GLOW?
“Always an ice plunge,” says celebrity facialist Melanie Grant. “If I’m looking a little tired, sallow or puffy, I fill a large salad bowl with ice and chilled water and plunge my face around 10 times to flush lymph and fluid, whilst stimulating circulation. It makes my skin super glowy instantly.”
SHOULD YOU CHANGE YOUR SKIN CARE REGIME WITH THE SEASONS?
A holistic approach, using topical and ingestible beauty treatments, is key to your beautiful new season complexion. “I am a big believer in treating the skin with the seasons,” says leading facialist Richie Angelo from MADE by SELF salon. “A change in season is the ideal time to detox your skin and shake up your skincare routine. It’s time to shed dry skin and renew, rejuvenate and refresh the complexion. It is also a crucial time to prepare the skin for the onslaught of UV rays come summer. I highly recommend having a moisture boosting facial and skincare assessment for the warmer months ahead and switching to a lighter moisturiser packed with nutrients to prevent clogging pores.” Try WelleCo’s Rich Moisturising Crème Made with Australian Organic Olive Oil, avocado and sweet almond oil and antioxidant rich pomegranate extract for a hit of nourishment and natural re-hydration.
CAN PROBIOTICS AND PREBIOTICS BENEFIT SKIN?
Taking both helps support digestion and keep Candida at bay and greatly reduces sugar cravings, which has an excellent effect on acne and overall ageing.
WHAT IS THE SECRET TO GLOWING SKIN?
Ramping up your intake of 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. When that balance is achieved, your skin holds moisture and your cells function properly, giving you that radiant glow.
