Skincare has had a major makeover in the past few years. Gone are days of having countless potions scattered across your bathroom vanity, spending big on ‘cure-all’ tonics that promise to strip ten years from your face, or having a fifteen-step routine that you must follow to a tee every night.
Now, it’s all about the bare beauty essentials: think natural, simple, minimalist products that rehydrate and revive tired, thirsty skin in as few steps as possible.
In fact, the minimalist movement has gained so much momentum, we’re now seeing concoctions that don’t need to be applied at all – just swallowed!
Yes, we’ve entered the era of ingestible skincare.
Distributed as a liquid or powder, ingestible skincare is designed to help you glow from the inside out. And while they’re relatively new in the beauty space, there are a stack of cool (and tried and tested) brands on the market to discover.
So, if you’re searching for that everlasting dewy look, you’re in luck.
Ahead, we share four of our favourite ingestible beauty products you can get your hands on now!
Entering the market way back in 2014, Vida Glow is a pioneer in the ingestible skincare space. Today, the brand specialises in active, scientifically proven beauty solutions that promise to transform your skin and hair.
Their hero product is the Natural Marine Collagen range (collagen is widely regarded as one of the best anti-ageing supplements around), which has been specifically formulated to firm and plump your skin, improve its elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and ageing. It also boosts hair and nail health.
Available in a stack of flavours, our vote’s with the pineapple (hello, extra vitamin C benefits!). One pack includes 30 x 3-gram servings, which you simply mix with water and enjoy daily.
While we’re waving the Vida Glow flag, we should also give a shout out to the ANTI-G-OX in berry, a daily antioxidant supplement that helps to support blood sugar and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
With a potent blend of actives, this daily elixir enhances skin health and reduces damage caused by sun, stress, and pollution… or, you know, everyday life.
All in all, consider it your extra defence against premature ageing.
Again, simply mix a sachet with water – or tip straight on to your tongue if on the move.
With a belief that ‘beauty begins in the belly’, The Beauty Chef has been specialising in tasty ingestible supplements for the past 14 years.
The entire range promises to nourish your body from within, resulting in plumper, more radiant skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails. They’ve also been proven to have a positive impact on your weight, immunity, and mood.
The brand’s bestselling Collagen Inner Beauty Boost is a must-try. FODMAP-friendly, vegan, and non-GMO, this naturally wild berry-flavoured liquid collagen won’t only do wonders for your skin – it will boost your digestive wellbeing, too.
For optimal results, consume one tablespoon daily, mixed with water or your favourite drink.
Founded in 2014 by none other than ‘The Body’ (Elle Macpherson), WelleCo’s carefully curated collection of wellness solutions have charmed many a beauty buff.
The Aussie brand is famous for its iconic super greens powder that supports hair, skin, nail, and digestive health. Just two teaspoons a day is all it takes to see clearer skin, enhanced energy levels, stronger hair and nails, a healthier immune system, and improved gut health.
It’s available in four delicious flavours (no bitter green taste, promise!) – we’re big fans of the lemon & ginger blend that is both sweet and bold.
For the best results, add two teaspoons to filtered water, coconut water, or almond milk daily.
