Every time I have my blood tested for vitamin deficiency, I get a speech from my doctor about my diet, and la-di-da. To give you some insight: right out of my mommy’s belly, I had an iron deficiency that I’ve now been dealing with my entire life. I call myself a ‘chickaterian” meaning, I only eat chicken for meat ( no seafood, no red meat, no dairy). This makes life a tad more complicated in a sense of vitamins, both for my bone health but also for my skin.
Since turning 27, I am finally on a hunt for vitamins that will help out my skin. Of course, drinking tons of water helps, but I was looking deeper into helping my skin fight against the outside world, AKA: free radical damage, pollutants, and obviously, gravity! I needed the supplements to be 100% vegan and sustainably sourced, cruelty-free and Non-GMO (I swear, don’t ask for much…*insert winking smiley face)
After doing some research, I came across this brand called Planted in Beauty which fit my prerequisites. They are sustainably formulated with the highest quality, purity and cruelty free standards. They are 100% vegan, non-GMO, and even Gluten-free! I quickly dug deeper into the ingredients and what they would help my skin fight against within their Inside Out Skin Wellness supplement package.
The package comes with two different supplements, the first is the Protect + Purify + Firm Antioxidant Blend, and the second is the Glow + Replenish + Balance Berry Oil Blend.
The Protect + Purify + Firm Antioxidant Blend is a mix of plant derived extracts that fight against free radical damage, keep skin firm and smooth, as well as help get rid of pollutants and impurities from the body BEFORE they reach the skin tissue. It also contains trace minerals like Selenium, Zinc and Copper to help assist with collagen productions and increase the skin elasticity (fighting gravity!).
The Glow + Replenish + Balance Berry Oil Blend is a mix of oils that work together to hydrate, plump, and balance the skin cells and lock in that moisture. It also has Omega 3 to 6 fatty acids and vitamin E for a skin antioxidant.
I was SOLD! I’ve been testing these out for the past month and I have to say my skin does feel more moisturized, and I feel protected and proactive about the longevity of my youthful glow!
I also have been testing out two skincare products from Planted in Beauty: the Detox Exfoliant which has been helping to gently exfoliate my skin, alongside the Eye Firming Complex that feels beyond creamy on my skin!
If you are unsure if you should be taking skin focused supplements, my answer would be to ask yourself this question:
How is your diet looking? are you getting all the vitamins you’d need from your daily meals? if not – get yourself some Planted in Beauty!
