We’ve all heard numerous times that a wholesome diet with plenty of fruits and veggies is the key to a healthy lifestyle well, it’s also the key to healthy skin!
In a world full of juice bars and organic foods, beauty supplements, tonics, vitamins and plant based beauty products have become all the rage and have received their own official beauty category “Nutracosmetics”.
There is a BIG move towards beauty that not only makes us look good but also treats our skin and bodies at a deeper, natural level. Products that FEED your skin and Neiman Marcus Fashion Show has just launched a brand new cosmetics area targeting this innovative category called Trending Beauty.
Designed to stand out from the rest of the Cosmetics area, Trending Beauty is outfitted with natural wood and steel fixtures, modern touches and neon signage.
Offering everything from home fragrance to supplements, tea, CBD beauty products, wellness oils and natural, vegan and cruelty free products, the space is a relaxed and exploratory area with ample opportunity for customers to share their finds on social media.
I took the new area for a test drive, sampling, sipping and slathering myself in products to bring you six standouts that will truly FEED Your Skin.
We lead busy lives and if you are anything like me you may not be getting that “recommended” amount of greens everyday.
We aren’t in the minority! Did you know that 87% of American’s don’t get their daily minimum requirements of greens?!?
That’s why drinkable skincare and skincare supplements are one of the hottest and fastest growing segments of the beauty industry.
Enter 8 Greens Essential Greens Booster.
This effervescent tablet with only ten calories packs a nutritional punch that tastes great, too. One tablet has as much vitamin B6 as 6 cups of spinach, vitamin C as 6 oranges, as much vitamin B5 as 15 cups of broccoli, as much B12 as 7 cups of milk and as much zinc as 2 cups of edamame! Umm crazy right!
Drop, Fizz, Sip. Not only are they good for you but they are pretty fun to drink. Rather than swallowing a pill, you drop this supplement in a glass of water, where it starts to fizz and dissolve. Once dissolved just sip on the zesty, refreshing lemon-y flavored green tonic.
These powerful and handbag friendly tablets will detox organs, oxygenate the body, help reduce the effect of aging and promote collagen (which we all NEED), encourage organ functioning, alkalize and balance PH levels in the body, help boost circulation and decrease inflammation, deliver essential vitamins and minerals and up your antioxidant levels to help keep you healthy!
Basically they do a whole lot of good things for your body and your skin!
Another one of my favorite On-the-Go skin boosters is HUM Nutrition’s Collagen POP+ Vitamin C Skin Boost.
As we age our collagen production begins to slow. Wuh, whuh, whuh. This results in lackluster skin that is dull and dry and we develop fine lines and loose firmness and elasticity.
So getting Collagen BACK into our skin is a major goal and something that is on every beauty-loving-gal’s list. There are tons of creams that work on the outside but you really need to approach this problem from the inside as well.
HUM Nutrition’s Collagen POP features premium marine collagen peptides and vitamin C to help maintain skin hydration, elasticity, and firmness. Plus, this formula upgrades any water into a lemon and rose pretty petal infused beauty tonic. Just drop a tablet in a glass of water and let the magic begin.
ANOTHER BENEFIT- THIS Collagen Booster is VEGAN! Most Collagen supplements are not.
It’s crazy- after I had been taking these for about a week I noticed a seriously youthful glow happening with my skin and so did everyone else. It was like I had applied the BEST makeup primer ever but the glow was really coming from the inside- not something I put on my skin!
Mas Collagen Por Favor. My take is you can never get enough. Vital Proteins is a leader in the Collagen Supplement world. One of the biggest things that sets them apart is that they use super high quality ingredients which are easily digestible which means you absorb ALL of the benefits versus them just passing through your digestive tract.
Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen is sourced from high-quality Japanese matcha green tea and grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide to ensure top quality and maximum nutritional benefit. By adding Matcha to the formula you are getting not only the collagen boost but also the antioxidant boost that Matcha provides!
Mix this little powder packet into water, almond milk, coconut milk or add it to a smoothie! It has a mild matcha flavor that isn’t overwhelming.
Now that we have discussed feeding your skin from the inside it’s time to nourish it from the OUTSIDE.
One of my beauty secrets is Chantecalle Pure Rosewater Facial Mist. A facial mist is one of the most versatile products in your skincare arsenal. Also known as an “essence”, it’s the often overlooked piece that takes your complexion from good to great.
This Pure Rosewater facial mist is harvested in Provence, France during the month of May. It’s hand picked and then distilled by pure artesian well water immediately after being picked at dawn (when the petals are richest and highest in nutrients and fragrance ) which allows it to provide maximum healing and moisture to the skin. This rare extract of the entire Rose de Mai is rich with antioxidants helping tired skin gain a more youthful appearance. Contains 100% of the Rose de Mai, including the total extract of the petals and all its essential oils. PLUS it’s free of animal components, phthalates, sulphate detergents, mineral oil, petrolatum, palm oil, synthetic color, synthetic fragrance and GMOs. No animal testing.
From setting your makeup, to a afternoon refresher, this will easily become your biggest asset when it comes to flawless, radiant, and healthy skin no matter what time of the year it is. Not only does Rose de Mai soothe dry and irritated skin, this satin like spray is also antibacterial and loaded with naturally derived Vitamin C, making this ideal for those with sensitive skin!
When midday has hit you and coffee just won’t cut it, Chantecaille Rosewater is everything you never knew you needed! This unique and rare rose (Rose de Mai) Pure Rosewater is the ultimate must-have for those seeking lightweight, luxurious hydration.
Right now CBD oil is definitely one of the most buzzworthy beauty ingredients around. Beauty nerds are having a heyday with it, extolling its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, emollient, and regenerative properties as a treatment for everything from acne to psoriasis to signs of aging.
When you infused the hemp-derived oil into beauty products you reap a ton of anti-inflammatory benefits when used topically, especially since it contains a powerful antioxidant and omega-rich formula.
Those strong antioxidant properties in CBD oil make it perfect for reducing inflammation in the skin.
Soul Addict makes an AMAZING CBD Honey mask (Soul Addict CBD Honey Mama Manuka Face Mask) which is brightens, calms, hydrates and renews skin like nothing else!
This superfruit and cannabis-infused raw manuka honey face + body mask is made with with powerful activated Vitamin C from organic Camu Camu, moisturizing and softening Manuka Honey, and potent calming + anti-inflammatory sun grown USA-farmed hemp CBD with a dash of cooling, organic peppermint. Handmade in small batches in Asheville, North Carolina it’s gentle on sensitive skin.
Elemis Superfood Day Cream. This vegan magical skin food is powered by superfoods and probotics to balance and moisturize skin with antioxidant rich oils and vitamin-packed Super Green Complex.
Made with Superfoods naturally rich in nutrients, minerals, omegas and antioxidants like broccoli, flax seeds and daikon radish it’s packed full of everything you need for healthy youthful appearing skin and it even contains ginger, matcha tea, and goji berry to help protect the skin’s barrier.
All this SUPERFOOD goodness blended together creates a perfect recipe of botanicals and antioxidants that results in a next-level moisturizer to instantly revive the complexion.
The silk-like texture melts into the skin, deeply penetrating and leaving no greasy residue behind. Skin feels instantly nourished and hydrated. And it stays that way throughout even the longest hottest day!
