What is ingestible beauty and why do I need it?
Ingestible beauty refers to powders, drinks, and supplements that are consumed orally, and target healthier skin, hair, and nails by nourishing the body from the inside out.
Ingestible beauty is a lasting solution which addresses issues that topical creams and serums can not. For example, the body's collagen levels naturally begin to decline in our early 20s, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and dull, dry complexions. Ingesting collagen powders can boost your body's collagen production, leading to visibly glowing skin and reducing the need for topical skincare.
Our 4 biggest tips when it comes to selecting an ingestible beauty product
At TOKA lab we are big proponents of ingestible beauty supplements and love to stay on top of the latest science. However, we know its a jungle out there and it can be hard to know what’s good and what’s snake oil. So we want to share 4 of our biggest tips when it comes to selecting the right supplement.
1. It targets collagen production or gut health
Your body's collagen levels and gut health are essential to maintaining a glowing complexion. If the product contains collagen peptides or probiotics, you're on the right track.
2. Get the right dosage
A clinically proven dose of the key ingredients is crucial to getting great results. Be wary of small serving sizes and know that effective supplements don't contain a large number of ingredients.
3. Understand the sourcing and manufacturing
The quality of an ingredient varies wildly depending on how it is processed, and the geography it is sourced from. For example there is a world of difference between a raw herb and an extract of a herb or marine collagen and bovine collagen.
4. Look out for sweeteners and artificial additives
Watch out for nasty headache inducing sugars / sweeteners and chemical additives / preservatives in your products. Stick to brands who only use raw, natural ingredients.
