Looking After Yourself from the Inside Out with Xtend Life

That old cliché that beauty comes from within isn’t just referring to your sparkling personality. If you want to look great on the outside, then you really do have to focus on what’s going on inside your body too. You can’t expect to have amazing glowing skin, flowing healthy locks and a twinkle in your eye if you’re drinking booze like its going out of fashion and eating junk food all day. If only life wasn’t so cruel!

I’ve recently stopped drinking alcohol at home, only indulging in a couple of glasses of my beloved wine if I’m having dinner out with friends or family. It was getting to a point where I was was suffering for it. Not through monster hangovers but I was feeling sluggish and depressed (alcohol is a depressant after all!) and my skin was dehydrated and tired-looking too. Lovely.

So I decided to do something about it and that didn’t mean just cutting down on the vino, I also wanted to up my supplement intake and start taking better care of my insides.

I’ve been using Xtend Life products for years. Ever since a friend recommended their Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil to sort out my bleach damaged hair I have been hooked! They literally transformed my locks in six months or so. I’m one of those people who’s pretty critical about the claims of supplements and the like, but after trying them for myself I can hand-on-my-heart say that they are complete magic! The purity of the oil in Xtend Life products is significantly better than a lot of other omega 3 items on the market and there’s no nasties like mercury in the water which the fish are bred in.

So, on my new health kick, I recently branched out on the Xtend Life products I was using. I decided to try the Kiwi-Klenz supplement to give my body, specifically my gut, a good old detox. It’s seriously good for your skin as most skin problems actually start in the gut apparently! To compliment this I also gave the Zupafood for Skin and the Age Defying Cleansing Mask a bash at the same time.

After taking everything for a few of months, coupled with my decreased alcohol intake, I have to say I feel FANTASTIC and my skin looks so much more radiant. My make up is going on better, my skin feels smooth and subtle and I’ve noticed I have more energy throughout the day.

    Wow, you make supplements sound incredibly appealing! Bread is the bane of my life these days. I love it so, but I don’t digest it that well and it makes me incredibly bloated and sluggish. I try to do what you’ve done with wine and only eat it when I’m out, but the hubby is a bread monster and we’re surrounded by amazing bakeries, so it’s a bit of a constant struggle as we always have some at home.
    I would love to try the Zupafood for skin. After a laser incident (that occurred 10 days before my wedding, I’ll spare you the details, but there were tears), I’m left with horrible blotches on my chin. They will go away with time and can be masked with makeup, but I’ve been piling on all the healing creams and oils under the sun to speed up the process, but I should start working from the inside out too!

  2. jemma Morgan

    Wow, what a great looking range! I’d definitely be going straight for the zupafood for skin. Years of partying have taken their toll and it would be a welcome boost alongside my clean eating lifestyle.

  3. Teresa

    These sound great!! I’m getting married in 6 weeks, and after struggling with the diet as well as house problems recently (roof leak anyone?) the Kiwi-Klenz sounds just what I need!

  4. Ooh these all look amazing and I’d be torn between the Zupafood and the Omega 3/DHA fish oil cos frankly both my skin and hair could do with a boost after a busy summer! :o)

  5. Sarah Jennings

    Kat, these sound great, my hair is in such a sorry state I have just about given up on it, I would love to give the omega 3/DHA fish oil a try!

  6. Faye

    Nearing the big 40 and having a stressful house move recently my skin could certainly do with a little TLC, so I would love to try any of these products to give me a little radiance

  7. Amy

    I always like to hear about supplements as I have only recently started taking probiotics for a healthy gut after experiencing years of difficulty with digestive issues, causing me to feel bloated, sluggish and gassy(!). I have only ever tried one brand which is almost finished (and have made a slight difference – along with healthier eating habits!) and would love to try the Kiwi-Klenz to see if they are a help.

  8. Rachel Red

    Hey. Would totally love to try the omega-3 premium fish oil. Have followed (with interest) how you saved your hair and I’ve just ventured into trying to save mine. Wedding in 9 months so am hoping for flowing locks for the wedding and beyond!

  9. Jennifer Dixon

    Definitely a believer in supplements- they make such a difference. I have been so poorly recently and am all over vitamins etc- although sadly the wedding budget is putting restrictions on how enthusiastic I can get. I would absolutely love to try out the Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil though- I have heard amazzzzing things about it!xx

  10. Becky w

    All looks good, I’d like to try the Kiwi Klenz, we’ve just bought a nutribullet-alike and I’m sure this will help give me an extra boost.

  11. Sian

    i need the omega 3 for my hair! It’s thin and frizzy (should be a lot curlier!) and stopped growing with the stress of planning our wedding last year x

  12. Louise Ferrier

    I really cant wait to try all these amazing products. I am most interested in the omega 3 fish oils as I had a very serious allergic reaction to fish 2 years ago and havent eaten any fish since. When I was in hospital the doctor told me it was a reaction to the amount of preservatives in the fish rather than the fish itself. I have been so scared ever since that I now dont eat any fish but I always think of how many good things I am missing out on with not having the omega 3 and the healthy fish oils you cant get from anything else. Its so good it has no mercury in aswell. It sounds like a really special product.

  13. Samantha Oldfield

    They all sound like wonderful health boosts but I’d try the Kiwi-Klenze first to shake off my sluggishness and kick start healthier eating.

  14. Catherine Whitworth

    I would love to try the cleansing mask – I’m currently trying to look after my body better, whilst looking for a career change as my job is no longer secure, trying to start thinking about starting my own business (a tad overwhelming!) and also planning our wedding in 6 months! Eeek! A little bit of pampering that is kind to and good for my skin, not to mention my stress levels, would do me the world of good 🙂 x

  15. Natalie Struyf

    Hi! I’m getting married in exactly 3 months. I’m a bit of a nervous wreck and I would love a product that will result in me being a radiant bride with perfect skin and a happy bloat-free gut. 🙂

  16. I would love to try the kiwi one.i have been suffering from chronic fatigue for over a year now and struggle to get myself motivated to keep on track with my diet and exercise.i used to be very healthy,active and fit which is a struggle to maintain since being unwell.i would love to give my body a kick start as I am determined to get my health and fitness back.im getting married next year and would also love to complete a marathon to raise money for a couple of animals charities (help Bulgaria street cats and dogs and a local cat charity Kats Kradle) x

  17. Nico

    I’m really interested in trying the kiwi cleanse, my mother in law swears by kiwi fruit and I know there must be something to it! I also wholeheartedly agree that a healthy gut is the place to start!

  18. Lucie Jones

    after giving up smoking and getting into a complete health kick, my whole body needs some tic!!! I would love to give everything a go! I’ve got 2 years to look good before my wedding!!!!

  19. Alison Schwartz

    Zupa food!! I have the worst skin. Lol. I’ve dealt with acne my whole life. While it’s sort of in check now, I feel like it could get better. The whe line sounds amazing. The kiwi cleanse sounds like something I wanna try also, so I would love to win this!!

  20. Lorna

    I’d really like to try the kiwi-klenz – I’ve been abusing my body far too much lately and it’s really showing in my skin, could do with a little help!

  21. Nichola Smith

    Oooooooohhhhh!! The Kiwi-Klenz sounds amazing! I suffer with IBS so my biggest worry on our wedding day is for it to flare up on me.

    Aside from that I do need to look after my skin better, I have oily skin and so far have found nothing (affordable) to keep it in check!

  22. I want everything! But particularly the Kiwi-Klenz, because I had a lot of drugs and nastiness put into my body in the last year, and my weight, skin and general verve have suffered as a result!

  23. Rachel Lucille

    Thank you for this amazing contest! I would love to try them all, but if I had to choose one it would be the Kiwi Cleanse! First of all I love the name! It conjures up images of tropical exotic scenery! Secondly, I was recently diagnosed with a disorder called rsd that resulted from complications from an injury and have been unable to walk for almost a year. It is a disease that affects your nerves and causes extreme pain as well causing your other systems to go haywire. It has taken its toll on everything from my skin to my digestive health and immune system. I definitely need all the supplemental help I can get and I feel like maybe I could have been taking better care of myself before I was diagnosed with this illness. I was definitely overextended and not taking vitamins regularly, only on occasion and I never thought that something like this could happen. It has definitely taught me to make my health a number one priority and made me appreciate my body as a temple!

  25. It would be so amazing to try the Zupafood for Skin. At 35, I thought the spotty skin was meant to be behind me but my skin, particularly around my jaw line, is terrible. It’s also really dry. I do try and drink more water, but I am totally hopeless! Would love to try this product and see whether it can help.

  26. barbara daniels

    the omega 3 fish oils as Im starting an Msc and I need all the brain help I can get. also Im prone to forgeting things and this would help

  27. Iris

    What a lovely set of goodies. I would love to try the cleansing mask, although I do try to eat quite healthy food my skin seems a bit dull at times and really could do with a bit of pampering.

  28. Fiona Henderson

    I would love to try the Age Defying Cleansing Mask as having just turned 30 im starting to feel my skin needs something like this.

  29. Sarah Brokenshire

    I would love to try the cleansing mask- I love trying to look after my skin and since the birth of my baby boy a month ago my skin has been all over the place! x

  30. Julia

    Zupafood elite – not only does it have collagen for skin, those extra mushrooms bump up libido too! Definitely would like to see the effects! X

  31. Charlie Porter

    I would LOVE to try the Zupafood for skin! I’ve suffered with acne since I was 11 and after so many drugs and treatments, including ones with side effects so severe they’re banned, I’m back to where I was 20 years ago. I swear it’s all gut related too, as my breakouts get even worse when I eat cheese, chocolate and bread!
    Having the confidence to wear strapless or backless clothes with a clear chest & back would be a winner too 🙂

  32. LondonREC

    I’d like to try them all, but particularly the Kiwi-Klenz, because I definitely believe that a lot of common health issues are connected to problems with the gut.

  33. Amy Rock

    All these products sound super amazing and helpful! If I had to choose, it’d be the Omega for my poor hair!

  34. After winter in New Zealand and two recent bouts of flu plus some ridiculously long work hours I’m going all in on this – I need all of it!!! My skin is a mess, I’m really run down and I’m also really tired. Always nice to see a Kiwi product too – I hadn’t heard of it before but it certainly looks like what I need…!

  35. Tiffany M

    Would really love a reboot, a chance to invest in myself before getting married. I’m a school counselor and take on many of my kiddo’s burdens. Face mask or fish oil would be amazing!

  36. Rebecca Hall

    loving the sound of the fish oils – seems like a wonder product and I’d love to try it…

  37. Andrea Miles

    would love to try the Omega-3 Premium Fish Oil as I’m on meds which need fortifying with omega 3
