Beauty comes from inside- metaphorically and physically. While topical skincare is the go to for results that are instant and show visibly, there are ways to double down on their benefits. Food habits and lifestyles have a great influence on our external appearance and overall health. Ingestible skincare refers to supplements and daily food you can intake to overall improve your skin and hair internally.
Often the daily food and nutrition are not entirely absorbed by the body and in such situations, we need some extra boost. Ingestible skincare products like supplements come into action at such a point. But do not skip keeping some amazing topical skincare products in your stash because their use along with supplements will give the perfect radiance.
Best Ingestible skincare and vitamins
We have shared the best and safest ingestible skincare products. Let us find out about their benefits and how they can help your skin:
Collagen supplements are a must-have skin savior that is known for delaying skin aging. It is a protein already produced in our body but over the years its production gets reduced. This is when additional supplements are required. They are available in the form of collagen peptide pills and powders. Apart from ingestible collagen, you can also try out a topical application too.
#2 Vitamin C
It is a collagen booster and producer that prevents the breakdown of your body’s collagen further. Today it is a powerful ingredient in many skincare serums and creams today. It works as an antioxidant that also helps to prevent the formation of free radicals that is caused by UV damage as well as from pollution. It is available as gummies and tablets in the market. This supplement is also used in our C For Yourself Face Serum. It contains L ascorbic acid which is the most potent and purest form of Vitamin C that is perfect for brightening your skin and reducing acne marks.
#3 Vitamin B
Vitamin B is available in various forms like thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), Niacinamide (B3), biotin (B7) etc. Among these, in the present days, Niacinamide or B3 is a raging ingredient in many cosmetics available. It is the vitamin that helps to maintain the natural skin barrier function, reduce dryness and soothe skin irritation. It also increases lipids or ceramides to maintain skin moisture. There are ingestible supplements as well as topical products available in the market. If you are looking to add Niacinamide in your skincare topically, opt for products with a low concentration as we offer at Foxtale in our Cover Up Sunscreen.
#4 Omega 3 Fatty Acids
The benefits of fish oil are widely discussed and considered one of the best ways to nourish your skin and hair internally. We get the benefits from the various daily foods we intake. But we can also take it directly as a supplement like capsules. Moreover, this is not produced by our body internally, thus requiring us to get the benefits from external sources.
The benefits of ingestible skincare are essential for all to maintain the natural beauty and overall health of our skin and hair. So, boost up your topical skincare further by nourishing your body internally with the help of such supplements.
