A daily ritual to nourish
your skin from within
Bestow Smoothies are the perfect way to sustain your energy and to get your daily dose of Bestow products, which offer your body a veritable feast of the nutrients required for beautiful skin.
Your 7-Day Meal Plan, includes a daily Bestow Smoothie (see below) as an afternoon snack each day. This smoothie recipe features three essential Bestow skin-nutrition products, Bestow Beauty Plus Oil, Bestow Beauty Powder and Bestow Gut Love +
Together, they offer a daily feast of essential skin nutrition.
Bestow Beauty Plus Oil moisturises your skin from within for a natural luminous glow. It contains a special blend of Essential Fatty Acids which helps each cell in your body cleanse more efficiently.
Bestow Beauty Powder nourishes your skin from within, supplying essential nutrients that are often missing in our modern diets. It helps to flood your liver with the nutrients it requires to cleanse.
Bestow Gut Love + Restores the gut and renews the skin with a world-class probiotic to rebalance the microbiome and fibre-rich superfoods to promote elimination of toxins.
Having these products in your Bestow Smoothie each day is an essential part of your 7-day plan. Collectively, they make a significant contribution towards meeting the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of key nutrients needed for wellbeing and skin health.
Modern food production and storage makes it actually very difficult for us to meet our RDIs through food alone, and Bestow skin-nutrition powders are an essential part of addressing this deficit. They provide your body with an abundance of the nutrients your skin needs to thrive.

THE BESTOW SKIN ESSENTIALS SMOOTHIE
Your RDI Hero Snack
Your Bestow Skin Essentials Smoothie gifts your body a significant contribution towards the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of many important nutrients. (See list below). For example, you get close to half your daily fibre needs and 60% of your vitamin A from this one smoothie. It also gives the body a good dose of calcium which is otherwise hard to get. This is done through the molasses and almond milk, both of which have high levels of calcium. And this is before you are even adding the full quantity of Gut Love +. Not bad for an afternoon snack!
We have set the Bestow Smoothie Ritual as an afternoon snack to avoid a blood-sugar dip. However you can choose to have it depending on when you feel your body most needs the boost. Another option is to include this with your breakfast or another meal of choice during the day if you prefer.
