Ingestible skin care: Eat and drink your way to beautiful skin

A skin care trend is taking the world by storm focusing on the nutritional skin benefits of ingestible skin care. Eat and drink your way to beautiful skin

Many of us incorporate anti-ageing or acne-fighting topical skin care products like cleansers, gels and creams into our daily skincare routine. An emerging skin care trend is taking the world by storm. Stepping away from conventional beauty solutions. Instead focusing on the nutritional skin benefits of ingestible skin care and how to eat and drink your way to beautiful skin.

We’re not just talking vitamins, green juices or beautifying vitamin drinks. Ingestible skin care products really pack a skin-nutrition punch. They have scientifically-proven benefits and are formulated with Marine Collagen, Aloe Vera, CoEnzyme Q10, Resveratrol and other naturally-occurring ingredients to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, help oily and congested skin and fight acne from within.


What is ingestible skincare?

Described as ‘ingestible skincare’, ‘digestible skincare’ or ‘drinkable skincare’, in essence, these are skin solutions that treat your skin problems by nourishing your complexion from the inside out. So you need to eat or drink the product to see the skin benefit. They come in a range of different forms depending upon your skin concern and how the ingredients are best delivered: soluble powders, tablets or capsules, jellies or drinks.

The idea of skin care that you consume might seem strange to some. But the premise that skin needs to be nourished from within has been commonplace in Asia for centuries. Here in the West, we’ve been reluctant to adopt the idea of feeding skin from the inside. Often preferring creams and lotions to keep skin spot-free and to delay the signs of ageing.  However, it’s evident that more people are becoming aware of the proven and visible benefits of ingesting key nutrients. Ingestible skin care could even overtake lengthy traditional topical skin care routines as the best way to treat acne, wrinkles and other skin issues.


Why is ingestible skincare better than topical creams?

One of the major differences is that it can be a lot kinder to your skin. Many of those struggling with skin care issues, particularly signs of ageing or stubborn acne, often turn to harsh products as a last resort. It’s really frustrating when acne won’t budge. Many of our customers say they turned to products containing salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide to treat their spots. Sometimes these topical products work reasonably well in clearing skin.  However often they leave skin looking more red and irritated — and can even make skin more sensitive.

It’s also important to be aware that our skin acts as a barrier.  When it comes to harmful toxins in the environment it’s great that our skin acts as such an effective barrier.  However, when we want to treat our skin, this same barrier effect means that topical creams and lotions can’t penetrate our skin effectively.  Ingesting ingredients to help our skin is much different. Our digestive system extracts the nutrients we need to address specific conditions such as acne and ageing skin.  You’re effectively feeding your skin from within, which when you stop to think about it makes perfect sense!

But for many, it’s a matter of preference. Traditional skin care routines can be time-consuming and not very convenient if you have a hectic lifestyle. Ingestible skin care solutions are easily incorporated into daily life. You just eat or drink them at any time of day as they’re portable — unlike your bathroom cabinet!

If you’re disappointed with the results of your topical skin care products in clearing your spots or reducing the signs of ageing then trying ingestible skin care could be a refreshing change for your skin.

You’re pretty much spoiled for choice: from beauty drinks to tablets and capsules. At Works With Water, we’ve focused on natural skin care solutions that can easily be incorporated into your daily routine. Making looking after your skin enjoyable as well as measurably effective.
