I think we’re all in the same boat when I say how tired I am of hearing my mom moan about her wrinkles, how shes used everything and nothings working? She uses all sorts of lotions and potions everyday which all promise younger skin and she spends a lot of money on them.
But after reading an article this morning, it could be apparent that she’s wasting time and money! The cosmetic industry is now producing beauty supplements in pill form.
The theory of having a pill that works on wrinkles and skin from the inside isn’t a new one, the industry has been working on a pill which is packed with nourishing ingredients which actually work!
This first ever anti-ageing supplement, manufactured by dove was trialed and tested for more than five years, by a team of scientists, dermatologists and nutritionists and were tested by 272 woman over a 14 week period.
The pill has even persuaded even the most skeptical of it’s benefits, it contains a mix of soy isoflavones, lycopene, vitamins C & E and omega -3 fatty acids. It’s results showed visibly smoother skin with a huge reduction in those deep set crows feet! According to the manufacturers Unilever, the pills are working so well on skin because by swallowing them, the nourishing ingredients are getting in to your blood stream. Same principle say if you ate a well balanced diet, your skin is a hell of a lot better compared to someone who eats nothing but grease right? Same concept, the pill has natural nutrients in it which give you that flying complexion. Your skin is a reflection of what’s happening inside!
As we age, our bodies aren’t as good at extracting nutrients from what we eat and we can’t get enough vitamins and minerals from food because everything’s so processed and most vitamins in food which help our skin (vitamins A, C and E) are sensitive to light, heat and chemical. Which basically means vitamins are hardly even in our foods. I take oral vitamins everyday, which I have noticed have help not only my general health but my skin is so much clearer and I don’t have break outs hardly anymore! (Bonus!)
Like with any tablets, please take care. Read instructions carefully and don’t exceed the daily dosage, as some vitamins and minerals can be toxic if you take too many. Might sound boring but please check the labels or ask your pharmacist if you are taking any other vitamins supplements.
