When it comes to ageing, there are so many factors that can affect it that don't even include skincare products. In fact, a huge percentage of our ageing comes from 'intrinsic' ageing (from inside).
With that in mind then, it's very important that we treat not just our outside, but our inside too! I always talk about inner beauty, because I genuinely feel that if you're not treating the skin from the inside out, as well as the outside in, you're not going to get the best result possible.
What are my favourite forms of inner beauty then? Well, other than a great diet... skincare supplements!
A healthy gut is one of the most important parts of ageing. Our gut controls so much of our body including digestion, mood, hormones and our immunity. We need to be feeding it everyday with good bacteria to keep it happy and healthy.
Here are my favourite probiotics...
THE BEAUTY CHEF GLOW INNER BEAUTY POWDER
It is a daily beauty powder for radiant skin and gut health. Formulated with 18 Certified Organic wholefoods including bio-fermented maqui berries, queen garnet plum and pomegranate fruit peel extract, vitamin C to help boost collagen production and zinc to support healthy hair and nails. Plus provitamin A, broad-spectrum B vitamins and probiotics and postbiotics thanks to their potent fermentation process, this berry-flavoured blend promotes luminous skin—from the inside out.
Why not try combining it with one of the Inner Beauty Boosts to give an even better result too.
ADVANCED NUTRITION PROGRAMME SKIN YOUTH BIOME™
Skin Youth Biome™ is a specialised supplement innovation using microbiome technology which is unique to Advanced Nutrition Programme. Their Nutritional and Skin Experts have professionally fused together 5 billion live cultures of four scientifically studied bacterial strains with vitamin C. All you need in a probiotic in one capsule.
There is a lot of talk about collagen supplements at the moment, but you really can't compare anything to Skinade when you are talking collagen supplements, it really is the 'Rolls Royce' of skincare supplements.
The results I've seen from before and after pictures are incredible.
Skinade delivers essential micronutrients in liquid form and aims to re-build the collagen matrix in your skin. Skinade aims to combat the signs of ageing by reducing oxidative stress, preventing cross linking of collagen fibres, increasing moisture and hydration, increasing natural hyaluronic acid production within the dermal layer of the skin. As a result skinade aims to restore your skin's youthful appearance, improve tone, texture, hydration, smooth furrow lines and promote better skin suppleness.
I have stocked and used multivitamins for so many years. Some of my favourite are the Advanced Nutrition Programme's Pro Vitality.
You just take one strip of vitamins each day to help support a healthy heart, brain, muscles, bones and energy levels.
Each supplement is highly formulated to provide your omegas, antioxidants, vitamin C and zinc, a multi vitamin, cognitive support and energy support... what more do you need??
I have been using skincare supplements for many years now and can honestly say I swear by them. My energy levels are so much better and my skin glows as well.
Why not try them for yourself and see if you notice the difference,
Thanks so much for reading,
Lots of love,
