Are ingestible products a game changer to your skin routine?
While many of us are extremely mindful about the skincare products we are using on the outside, there’s a vital step in our regime that we should be turning our focus to... Ingestible Beauty!
While a healthy and nutritious diet plays a valuable role for skin health, many people are simply not getting enough nutrients due to lifestyle factors, impaired nutrient absorption due to gut dysbiosis and poor dietary choices.
Our skin is a direct reflection of our inner health and wellbeing. Topical products can be applied through skincare, however if we have poor gut function, or are lacking nutrients this will affect the condition of our skin and how it ages. Stress, a sedentary lifestyle, high saturated fat intake, or a diet high in ultra processed foods low in fibre and high in salt, sugar and additives can cause alterations in gut motility and the gut microbiota. This in turn can increase intestinal permeability allowing endotoxins to gain systemic access. This may result in inflammatory skin conditions, impaired skin barrier function and breakouts.
Ingestibles are nutritional supplements and functional foods that treat the skin from within. For our skin to be clear and glowing we need a whole food diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fibre, polyphenols and prebiotics. Ingestible beauty products are the perfect pairing to your topical skincare to nourish and enhance your skin from the inside out.
When looking for ingestible beauty powders and supplements, turn your eye to products that are free from fillers, bulking agents, emulsifiers, artificial colours and excipients such as maltodextrin, polysorbate 80, propylene glycol and titanium dioxide.
