Supplements For Skin

Samaya’s Ayurvedic Skincare Supplements

samaya

Want an inside job? To nourish your skin from the inside? Samaya’s multi-award winning Ayurvedic skincare supplements are personalised by dosha (bodily energy) type, so you select your pill according to your constitution. (In Ayurvedic medicine, the three doshas —vata [wind], pitta [bile] and kapha [phlegm] — need to be in balance for optimum health.) The supplements all contain hyaluronic acid (to keep your face moist), CoQ10 (an antioxidant) together with Gotu Kola (its terpenoids increase collagen production), Triphala (helps inflammation), Acerola-amla (rich in vitamin C) and other powerful Ayurvedic herbs such as (Indian ginseng) Ashwagandha. They’re also chokka with anti-inflammatories and antioxidants —from iodine from seaweed to polyphenols from green tea — naturally boosting your immunity, promoting the formation of collagen, helping repair tissue, and combating tiredness and fatigue. The Kapha supplement packs a punch (you can feel its Triphala and Ashwagandha energising you) and its ginger, cinnamon, rosemary and sage also make it very detoxifying and cleansing. On top of that, wait for it, they have no bulking agents, are 100% natural, vegan, kosher, cruelty-free, non-GM and ‘Made in England’. Pop two a day and you’ll soon see visible results.

Ingenious  Beauty’s Ultimate Collagen takes about six weeks for results properly to show. After just three, though, you’ll find your nails stronger, your skin plumper and your face glowing. All from popping marine collagen petptide, hyauluronic acid and astaxanthin supplements —in a product that boasts as many beauty awards as ingredients. Whizzy technology’s used to protect the collagen, making it 15 times more effective; there’s science behind the product’s enteric collagen delivery system; and its astaxanthin (an antioxidant found in salmon) is 6000 times more powerful than Vitamin C for boosting your immune system. You’ll find yourself counting the seconds till six weeks is up, whilst repeating the mantra: wrinkle reduction coming soon. 90 capsules, £54.99, feelingenious.com – Review by Caroline Phillips

Viviscal

 

Viviscal

A naturally derived hair growth supplement, Viviscal has attracted the attention of salon experts around the world since its creation, as well as a whole host of A-listers – Karlie Kloss, Reese Witherspoon and Hailey Bieber, to name a few. It also has strong scientific backing: in one study, 75.3 per cent of participants reported a significant decrease in hair loss. The company created its signature growth-boosting formula back in the 80s, following a Scandinavian study which discovered the beautiful hair of the Inuits was a result of their marine protein-rich diet. Viviscal’s star ingredient is its trademarked AminoMar marine complex, which is a blend of sustainably sourced shark cartilage, fish oil, mollusk powder and silica – all of which have hair strengthening properties. viviscal.co.uk
