My skin's acting up again and now it's the lower part of my face which is giving me grief and I've sustained a sexy breakout/rash which runs along my jawline and all over my chin *sighs*
Introducing Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend. She credits this with giving her great skin, and whist I am fully aware that she's obviously photo-shopped to a degree on the pages of the monthly glossy, her skin looks pretty damn good in her Twitter profile pic, so that's enough validation for me!
Udo's Choice Ultimate Oil Blend is a certified organic blend of unrefined seed oils. You may or may not be aware that consuming a good quality source of Omega 3 is important for general health and wellbeing and specifically helps to maintain a healthy heart and healthy joints. Omegas 6 & 9 are often overlooked but Ultimate Blend Oil is formulated to contain an ideal 2:1:1 ratio of Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids.
I've noticed I've been 'creaking' a fair bit lately, so I figured adding this to the daily supplements I take may benefit my aching bones further. I've also read that Udo's Choice has helped contribute to healthy hair, nails and skin in users so here's hoping I see a difference soon. I'm currently taking Biotin and Cod Liver Oil tablets again, so something's gotta give!
The first time I tried it, the taste didn't turn me on in the slightest! I should have stuck to the instructions which recommend it is added to food - thinking I knew best, I swallowed it straight. Yuck - it tasted "oily", much like cod liver oil and still had me wincing in disgust on the tube 45 mins later! I took it again this morning, with a small shot of orange juice, which was much better. I'll now endeavour to take it on a daily basis.
It is suggested that you pour 3-4 dessert spoons on your food, and use in the following ways:
* Mix in with prepared pasta
* Drizzle over steamed or roahttp://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=8450778372405788281sted veg
* Pour into porridge and cereals
* Blend in with your favourite smoothie
* Enjoy with yoghurt
* Add to dips and spreads
Once opened, it needs to be used within 8 weeks and must be stored in the fridge.
It cost me £18.99 (500nl) here on Feelunique.com - but I had a £5 discount code, which came in handy! It also comes in a 250ml bottle and in tablet form too.
ETA: I exfoliated this evening using MAC Volcanic Ash exfoliator, followed by Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask and my skin has improved 95% - it's amazing what a good scrub will do! All the roughness and flakiness has gone. Hopefully I'll see some real results from the oil blend too. I'll keep you posted.
