beauty – from the inside out

INNER BEAUTY is more relevant now than ever

so why are we still obsessed with outer beauty?
so why are we still so obsessed with outer beauty?

While we can always try to cover up our tiny flaws and imperfections with makeup correctors & concealers, and enhance our complexion with blush and bronzer, nothing beats a real lit from within healthy glow that comes from eating healthy foods, drinking lots of water and limiting alcohol intake.

It seems that our beauty routine lately is becoming a lot less traditional and a lot more ingestible. We don’t really need a lot of expensive night creams to do the trick if we live a relatively healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and lots of sleep. I believe in the arsenal of a common sense routine mixed with a few tried and true products. 

I want to introduce you to five of the latest beauty products on the market meant to make you more beautiful from the inside out  picks that are sure to blur the line between your kitchen cabinet and your vanity.

I’m not promoting these products as I haven’t tried any of them and don’t intend to  – just that it’s interesting to find out how the market may be changing.  With so many things out there it’s hard to decide what to choose – you have to be selective.  I did come across a vegan chocolate bar that claims to slow the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin – hell, I’m all for that one!

Never mind the saying “you are what you eat”  – I’m changing it to “you are what you live” –  it’s much broader and more forgiving.

What do you think about that?

Beauty biz – beauty you can EAT

Edible beauty products…It was just a matter of time edibledon’t you think so?  After all, the beauty industry is HUGE.  There are natural products and then there are these which I believe falls into the natural category…..even more so because they are good enough to eat.  Hmmm…I haven’t tried any of these, not sure how they taste but thought you’d like to know about them.  As seen on Style Bistro.

We all know true beauty comes from within. But great skin doesn’t hurt, either. With all of the thousands of different products available, we’ve grown accustomed to lathering, lotioning and glopping on. But what if you didn’t have to? What if you could just take a pill and fight anti-aging or the sun’s rays? A new series of products hitting the market is aiming to do just that. From drinkable sunscreen to pills for your skin, ingestible beauty products have been popping up on our radar these days.

edible1For those concerned with anti-aging (like who isn’t?), drinkable collagen might be the answer. Reserveage’s Collagen Replenish ($16) is a flavorless powder that’s meant to be mixed in with water or juice. The powder contains collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to supposedly fight collagen deterioration and free-radical damage.

And if putting on sunscreen is so last summer for you, perhaps drinkable SPF is more your style. Osmosis edible2Harmonized Water UV Neutralizer ($30) is a liquid dietary supplement that helps protect against sun damage, thanks to its vibration-frequency technology that’s supposed to neutralize UV radiation.

edible3And if skin brightening is more your style, Equitance has a Skin Radiance Dietary Supplement ($50) meant to support skin brightening. These pills are designed to improve skin’s vitality with a balance of natural ingredients such as grape-seed extract, yucca-wood extract, hesperidin and egg shell membrane, which contains L-cystine (an amino acid popular for illumination).

But what do you think?

Would you ever try ingestible beauty products?
