3 things you need to know about beauty supplements
We all know that a solid skin care routine is vital to healthy skin. But what we put in our mouths is even more important for skin health - that’s why beauty supplements are worthy of scoring a spot in our skin care routines. The good news is this emerging trend isn’t just another flash in the pan - beauty supplements can actually play an important role in transforming your skin, hair and nails. So it’s no wonder these supplements are revered by beauty addicts.
To find out exactly how beauty supplements wield their magic, we chatted to Qsilica’s Brand Development Manager, Jessica Palmer.
1.Beauty supplements can help promote collagen production
Collagen naturally declines as we age, which is why skin can wrinkle and sag, and nails and hair can become brittle and lacklustre. “Think of collagen as the ‘super glue’ that works to sustain and nourish the interior and exterior of the body as we age gracefully,” explains Jessica.
It’s important to nourish your body with quality nutrients and active ingredients that support the body’s own production of collagen. That’s where formulations like Qsilica’s PRO COLLAGEN, a vegan friendly variety, can be helpful, as it contains active mineral silica and vitamin C. “Mineral silica provides strength and resilience to connective tissue,” says Jessica. “While vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen plus it is an effective antioxidant, an agent that helps reduce free radical damage and preserve existing collagen in the body.”
2.Beauty supplements can moisturise your skin from the inside, out
Keeping your skin hydrated and moisturised helps to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. One ingredient that has a knack for moisturising from the inside, out is Lipowheat™. “Derived from wheat seed, Lipowheat™ is a natural ceramide extract that boosts skin hydration, relieves dry skin and counteracts the visible signs of aging all from within” explains Jessica. Found in Qsilica’s PRO COLLAGEN, Lipowheat™ also contributes to the support of collagen production. “By replenishing your body with natural nutrients that promote collagen production, you are investing in yourself health-wise and beauty-wise.”
3.Beauty supplements can give you results in 8 weeks
Taken daily, Qsilica is a convenient way to transform your skin and nails, with many customers reporting visible results within eight weeks of use. But while taking a supplement is easy and convenient, it’s important to make sure your diet is packed full of real food sources that boost your skin’s health. “Supplements are there to ‘supplement’ a healthy lifestyle and boost nutrients that may be lacking,” explains Jessica. “A poor diet may negate the results you are trying to obtain by taking a supplement.”
