beauty diy: ALMOND MILK BIRCHER MUSELI + HONEY LABNE

ALMOND MILK BIRCHER MUSELI - bellaMUMMA

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN BEAUTY-BOOSTING ALMOND MILK BIRCHER MUSELI WITH HONEY LABNE

by our ‘beauty chef’ contributor, Carla Oates


Bircher muesli is a great way to start your day as it is packed full of fibre and skin-boosting goodness and it’s totally delicious, too. Fibre cleanses the bowels (good gut health is the basis of clear skin); while oats provide silica, which helps to maintain skin elasticity, and dates are a rich source of skin-rejuvenating minerals, including the beauty mineral potassium and A, C, K and B vitamins. Chia seeds and linseeds are rich in omega-3s, which help moisturise the skin from the inside, while sunflower seeds are a great source of skin-rejuvenating vitamin E. Sheep’s yoghurt full of good bacteria, which promotes digestive health and can improve the look of your skin. {*If you don’t feel like making the honey labne, a simple dollop of plain yoghurt is just as lovely, then you can add nuts or grated apple for extra crunchiness.}
