The Supplement Your Skin Needs: Udo’s Oil

16th Apr 2015

It’s called Udo’s Oil, and you can thank us later.


Almost every vitamin and mineral promises to revolutionise your skin, but just as every snowflake is unique, so it is with our skin’s receptiveness to supplements.

What gives your friend’s winter skin the spring overhaul it so desperately needs may cause breakouts in you, and end up a serious waste of money. There’s so seldom agreement on what works that we have to prick up our ears when everyone around us starts singing the praises of a particular product.

Udo’s Oil first came to our attention via actress and skincare goddess Caroline Morahan, who swears by it. Caroline recently finished a stint at the Abbey in She Stoops to Conquer. If there is one profession that knows a good beauty regimen, it’s acting. Those harsh lights, that heavy make-up and a necessary heavy duty cleansing routine every night are a challenge for even the most naturally luminous skin.

For the past decade, Caroline has been taking Udo’s Oil after her mother advised her ?to look after your skin from the inside out.? Udo’s Oil contains essential fats Omega 3 and 6, which help skin cells hold onto water, helping you say farewell to a dehydrated-looking complexion and hello to an attractive glow (not to mention glossy hair and stronger nails). Omega 3, in particular, acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps prevent breakouts, a bane for the twenty- and thirty-something gal who thought they left their teenage years and heavy foundation habits behind long ago. Think of it as an internal daily moisturiser in a bottle.

Amazingly, Udo’s Oil is super easy to incorporate into a daily routine because it’s essentially tasteless. With organic ingredients such as flax seed oil, sunflower seed oil, sesame oil, coconut oil, evening primrose oil, soy and lecithin plus rice bran and oat bran germ oils, it’s a perfect addition to salad dressings, soups and porridge. You can also add Udo’s Oil to juices and smoothies to enhance their goodness without compromising flavour.
