EVER HEARD OF INGESTIBLE SKIN CARE—YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!
Many of us—beauty conscious people—incorporate anti-aging, skin tightening, or acne-fighting topical products such as creams, cleansers, sunscreen lotions, and gels into our daily skincare routine. However, these products aren’t as effective as their manufacturers want you to believe. Besides, they take much of your time in the mirror!
This explains why people are stepping away from orthodox beauty solutions and concentrating on how to eat and drink their way to a beautiful skin. Picture it this way, if you eat fruits and your skin needs some additional vitamin C, the body will automatically absorb it into the bloodstream, and off to where it is needed.” However, the moment you load Vitamin C-rich creams onto your skin, it’s absorbed whether or not your skin needs it. And as the old saying goes, “Too much of anything is poisonous.”
Ever heard of ingestible skin care?
Also called ‘drinkable skin care’, this revolutionary beauty solution aims to treat your skin issues by nourishing it from “inside out.” Still not getting the concept? In essence, this beauty solution requires you to ingest (eat or drink) the foods that are antioxidant-rich or take beauty supplements for you to achieve a glossier, more youthful skin. These beauty products come in numerous forms - drinks, gummies, capsules, pills, and soluble powders – with the primary goal being to convey the ingredient in the best way possible.
The idea of ingestible skin nutrients might be seen as strange by some eyeballs, but the premise that human skin needs to be cultivated from the inside out has been practiced for a long time, especially in Asia.
Here in the West, people have been a little bit reluctant to adopt the idea; they wholly depend on topical creams and lotions to do the trick. However, after extensive awareness, people are starting to realize the effectiveness of ingestible nutritional cosmetics over the conventional topical creams and lotions.
Sometimes it is not easy to access some of the skin-nourishing nutrients direct from the natural sources—that is why bioavailability is a great factor influencing the cost of ingestible beauty products.
Ingestible and nutritional skin products promise everything you ever wanted from your skin; from stronger, softer skin to renewed vivacity (1, 2, 3). Specialists remain skeptical about these newly found beauty products, but they are not entirely dismissive.
"Some powders contain high doses of nutrients, antioxidants, and probiotics," says Jessica Weiser, MD a dermatologist at the New York Dermatology Group.
So, even though most beauty supplement firms claim to be the best in the game, you need a lot of careful considerations before investing in products that might end up being trash! If the company is not clear-cut on what kinds of ingredients they are using in making their beauty products, you better learn about nutrients that improve your skin and ingest them directly from their natural sources. After all, this is the best way!
