I’ve always been a believer in the idea that good skin starts from within, but a new generation of ingestible skincare is taking this idea a step further…

Don’t be fooled, these products are not your standard supplements: this is supercharged skincare that’s designed to be swallowed, not applied topically. One of my favourites is Elle Macpherson’s The Super Elixir, which is packed with a host of powerful skin-feeding ingredients and works to balance the system from within for that expensive-looking supermodel glow. Then there’s Ioma Paris’ Collagen Renew tablets, which are billed as the world’s ‘first encapsulated wrinkle treatment’ - the result of 10+ years of exhaustive clinical research into the body’s own collagen production, and with really impressive, skin-firming results. My own Pure Skin juice is full of skin-boosting ingredients to restore a healthy glow from within. Others pack in skin superstars like hyaluronic acid, collagen and antioxidants; but whatever your potion, it’s fair to say this new development is only just the beginning of something really exciting in the world of beauty.
