What Is Ingestible Beauty?
The beauty industry is taking the famous saying, “you are what you eat” to a whole new level. Over the past few years, many notable beauty and wellness brands have shifted their focus to create products that are known as ingestible beauty. But, what exactly are these ingestibles and how do they promote beauty? We’re here to explain more.
Ingestible beauty defined
In the beauty industry, ingestibles are considered to be a supplement, powder, vitamin or any other “ingestible” product that helps optimize skin, hair and nail health. Many of these products are designed with a beauty enhancement goal of some kind (think reduce fine lines/wrinkles, boost collagen levels, reduce acne) as well as promote overall health and wellness. The big push here is to replace beauty products with all-natural, plant-based elixirs to heal the gut, improve digestion and boost energy to create beautiful, glowing skin. A few examples of ingestibles include: collagen powder or supplements, daily probiotics and prebiotic supplements, dietary supplement powders, plant-based superfood blends and bone broth. Many of the top beauty brands are competing against each other to create the next best total beauty elixir all in one, through the power of ingestibles.
Beauty from within
The main idea behind these ingestibles is to heal the body to create beauty from the inside, to then promote beauty on the outside. While beauty procedures like botox or fillers are available, they are really only a quick (and expensive) fix. In order to truly create whole-body beauty, it is a combination of adding these ingestibles to your daily routine, as well as eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, moving your body, resting properly and practicing meditation. A true combination of these practices, along with taking your ingestible beauty product daily, you will start to notice a significant difference in how you look and feel. This will slowly start to become a new ritual that you refuse to skip!
Bone broth as ingestible beauty
When it comes to your daily beauty ingestible, we highly recommend our broth concentrates! Our broth concentrates are made with real, USDA organic ingredients, with no salt, sugar, preservatives or colors added, making them as clean and healthy as can be. The resulting broth concentrate is rich in naturally-occurring collagen and rich in nutrients that help promote unparalleled benefits across gut-health, skin vibrance and whole-body beauty. By adding bone broth as the first step to your daily beauty and wellness routine, you will start to look AND feel like a million bucks (without having to spend a fortune on it!).
Finding the ingestible that’s right for you
When it comes to finding the ingestible beauty product to incorporate in your daily routine, it can get a bit overwhelming. There are SO many different brands and products out there, which is great, but can also be a bit stressful. We highly recommend talking with your doctor and doing your own research to pinpoint which brand and product is right for you, your body and your goals. If you are looking for a place to start, here are a few tips:
Start with the basics
As you start shopping around, look for simple, straight forward products and ask yourself the following questions
- Is the product natural?
- Is the product organic?
- Do you recognize the ingredients used?
Whenever trying a new product, it’s always a reassuring sign when you recognize the ingredients used and the product clearly states how it is made, the benefits and how to use it.
Visit the company’s website
Before purchasing anything, take the time to visit the company’s website to get to know who they are and what they stand for. Learn as much as you can about their products and how they are made. Check out any customer reviews or best-sellers, and the FAQs pages. Do all that you can to familiarize yourself with the brand, as this will help you decipher if the products are right for you and your goals.
Ask for help
So you’ve found the product you are looking for, and feel comfortable with the brand, but still have a few questions before purchasing? Reach out to your doctor and send the product information to review. You can also reach out to the brand itself (most websites have an instant chat feature) to ask any remaining questions you may have. Talk to your friends, family members or colleagues who may be using the same product and ask for their advice. There are plenty of resources out there to help you. Once you get the answers you are looking for, place your order and get ready to nourish your body to glow!
All in all, ingestible beauty products are the new, ultimate way to heal the body to promote beauty from the inside out.
