It’s what’s on the inside that counts
WelleCo Co-Founder Elle Macpherson spills the secret to her glowing complexion. Spoiler alert: It’s what you put inside your body that really counts.
“On waking, I add ginger, mint and pinch of cayenne pepper to my usual hot lemon water,” says Elle. “It has a great detoxifying and fat burning effect. An hour later, I take my two teaspoons of WelleCo SUPER ELIXIR Greens in 500ml of filtered water for firm, plump, hydrated skin. It includes the amazing ingredient Horsetail that is full of skin-loving silica that contains collagen. It also aids the repair of body tissues, stimulates healthy cell growth, and is the perfect first step in any beauty routine. I find my complexion is a great health barometer and can show how I’m feeling inside.
Nothing I put on my skin works as well as what I put inside my body, so for me a healthy gut is key to keeping my skin soft and supple. SUPER ELIXIR Greens is formulated with ingredients that are fantastic for glowing skin - Pomegranate for vitamin A and its high antioxidant properties, and Horsetail extract and Aloe Vera for combatting the visual effects of ageing, including pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Three litres of water is non-negotiable for keeping my skin healthy. I am conscious of the quality of my drinking water and make sure to filter out harmful chemicals like fluoride. I am mindful of EMF and other environmental toxicity too. Ultimately a more holistic approach to wellness that is a combination of a plant-based diet, physical, spiritual and emotional health is most effective for me.”
