Do supplements really work on skin??
This new era, this generation and the regularly expanding beauty market has this trend of Beauty supplements. But are they really that 'New'? Multivitamin supplements in tablet forms are available since years and the study, research behind them support the use of those supplements in the cases of difficiency. Doctors and nutritionists always preferred dietary intake of these vitamins rather than supplements. But the time has changed, I see these Hair, Nail and skin supplements are brought in the market by large companies and people really tend to love them! So, do they really work? With soil depletion and quality degradation of the vegetables we eat in modern times are not necessarily giving you the same amount of nutrition they gave decades back. Also, with every food intake there's always a chance that you're missing out on some vitamins and that leads to slight deficiency. For example, in the colder regions wherethe Sun exposure is minimal, people living there get Vitamin D deficiency. Does that mean it's impossible to get it naturally?No, but it takes a lot of Morning Sun rays exposure to meet the demand. Hence, Vitamin D supplements come in picture. They help you with your deficiency while working on maintaining your health. Supplements specifically targeted for skin are ' generic supplements that are packaged to look like they are magic pills'. I am taking Some supplements recently just to see if they help. And I noticed they do make my skin feel more plump and bright. Mainly it works the best on Nails. My nails are stronger and less brittle now. They helped my Hormonal breakouts less painful with each month. I believe these are the supplements providing you the right ingredients internally and are generally effective. Topical and digestive both vitamins work on skin. They are helpful in maintaining your overall immunity. Skin, nails and hair are the parts where we can see visible difference. Also, Free radical production causes oxidative stress, promoting disease, notes an article published in Pharmacognosy Review. “Resveratrol is a potent plant antioxidant that helps support the clearing of skin-damaging free radicals from the body,” (Sarah Greenfield, RD , HUM nutrition) But the Supplements with collagen in it are not going to help your skin produce more collagen. Some in the beauty world argue that the ingestible use of collagen is a waste of money. “The only way to make collagen usable for the body is to digest the protein using proteolytic enzymes,” says Nick Bitz, ND, a board-certified naturopathic doctor who is currently serving as chief scientific officer for Youtheory, an internationally distributed beauty supplement line based in Irvine, California, which was one of the first to market collagen. What's my conclusion? These Multivitamin, Omega, Resveratrol, fatty acids and Antioxidants supplements definitely help in improving skin appearance and texture. Collagen supplements don't have a solid science research and backing. Is it worth to buy Skin,Nails and Hair supplements? I would say if you like to have some multivitamins added to your routine there's no harm. (Unless you're using it in excess). While fhe food we eat isn't necessarily proving all sorts of nutritional values, supplements are a great way to suffice that need. Is it necessary to take supplements? It depends on your bodily needs. If you're deficient of some Vitamin, Doctors may or may not prescribe you with these. And you're buying it over the counter just to try them out, I would say give it a try. They may give you amazing results or they may not! I'm not sure if I support taking supplements as religiously as I support the use of right Skincare products. I am always seeking for more articles and studies to support them. But I definitely enjoy taking these gummy pills! ✨😊🙌HUM - Glow Sweet Glow Skin Hydration Vegan Gummies
💊First Impressions: HUM vitamins & supplements
HUM is a supplement brand with a philosophy & huge product range dedicated to beauty nutrition. Pure, non-GMO, sustainably sourced & gluten-free! They also have all your basic vitamin/mineral needs covered, as well as curated blends for more specific issues. The line up is pretty impressive: over 30 different options for everything from healthy digestion probiotics, to wrinkle reduction & skin-cell protection. Walter Faulstroh & Chris Coleridge founded Hum Nutrition in 2012, after Walter’s personal struggles with acne breakouts led him to prescription medications & topical solutions. nothing worked for him long term, but while working at their previous company, ‘V Water’ (a vitamin/mineral infused beverage company) he was inspired by a coworker after she helped his acne by formulating drinks specifically targeted to treat it. With help a forward-thinking nutritionist from London, Hum nutrition was born. 🙋🏻♀️I would highly recommend taking advantage of your FREE personal nutritionist: 💻I’ve had the best email correspondence with mine thus far... Fast responses & she always addresses my questions or concerns thoughtfully. I’m not going to rate anything just yet, although I did give a 4⭐️rating to the ‘Glow Sweet Glow’ gummies recently when I got a sample from Sephora... but as I said in that review it could really only be a rating on flavor & texture, because taking 1 days worth of vitamins is not how this magic works. But trying those led me to research the brand a bit & on to purchase 8 supplements from them😂 💊I look forward to seeing (& feeling) some results in 4-6 weeks & sharing a full review of each supplement with you! They start you off with 3 recommendations after you take a brief (very easy) quiz. I only picked 2/3 of the ones they chose & added the others I was interested in. You don’t have to do this at all, you can grab most of these at Sephora, or purchase whichever on HumNutrition.com —But there are great price breaks if you sign up: $10 off 15% off of 3 additional 25% off for 3 month plan ( charged 1 month at a time ) 📆 The ones I picked for my arsenal: All prices for 30 day supply 💳 (1 or 2 a day) 🧡HUM - Base Control$10 The multi-vitamin. (Also comes in iron free) Been off my vitamin game for a while, so this was a no-brainer. 💓HUM - Private Party : Supports Vaginal & Urinary Tract Health$25 A probiotic supplement for the ladies. The one that really caught my attention. 🐟HUM - OMG! Omega the Great Fish Oil Supplement$30 One recommended for me. Kind of big. ❤️HUM - Hair Sweet Hair Growth Vegan Gummies$25 Berry. 🌚HUM - Mighty Night Overnight Renewal Supplement$40 To naturally aid sleep/increase cell turnover. 💨HUM - Air Patrol Supports Skin & Lungs with Vitamin C$10 Vitamin C & Calcium for lung health. 🍊HUM - Glow Sweet Glow Skin Hydration Vegan Gummies$25 Tangerine. ☀️HUM - Here Comes The Sun Vitamin D Supplement$12 I don’t get a lot of sun.🧛🏻♀️
Hyaluronic Acid Gummies 🧡 + vitamin C & E
I can really only rate these on taste & texture because this was just a Sephora sample of 2 gummies. THE SCIENCE 🧬 ￼￼￼50% of the hyaluronic acid present in the body is found in the skin. It helps keep moisture & collagen locked into the skin to maintain a healthy appearance. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study it was found that ingested hyaluronic acid increased skin moisture & improved treatment outcomes for patients with dry skin. ￼￼Vitamin C is a precursor for collagen production. Adequate levels of vitamin C can increase the amount of collagen the body produces to help decrease fine lines & wrinkles. I made some slides about additional ingredients🌻 HUM - Glow Sweet Glow Skin Hydration Vegan Gummies $25/60 gummies (30 day supply) I like the texture, it’s sort of that thick gummy you can easily bite in half, not rubbery like a gummy worm. 🍊It was a bit overly sweet... a vitamin c chewable type flavor, but a little more like an orange-cream🍨 🍊🍨It’s supposed to be tangerine, so let’s call it tangerine-cream They were pleasant enough to take twice a day, but I could see myself getting sick of this flavor pretty quick. I’m interested to maybe try some of their other offerings. They have a huge range of different supplements for skin, hair, nail care & more. Hum isn’t all gummies either, they make lots of formulas like regular capsules, tablets & gelcaps💊

Cystic acne treatments
Looking for products/treatments to help cystic acne! It’s the bane of my existence. Anything that has added benefits such as lore reduction and any anti-aging properties would be amazing! 🙌
Not a good day...
Okay guys I know it’s only been 3 days but my face broke out even worse! I have not had this bad of acne since I was in high school!! I hate it.. I think I’m going to stop using these products and try CeraVe ... I used Cetaphil before (which I loved but it seems to not be working now) and I’ve heard good things about CeraVe for acne so.. wish me luck!!
Silk Pillowcases 😴☁️
SILK PILLOW CASES✨☁️ Why are they beneficial? Silk pillow cases are gentler on the skin than rough cotton pillow cases and can be very beneficial, especially if you are dealing with acne / have more sensitive skin. The friction from cotton pillows can actually create more inflammation in some cases. Silk pillow cases absorb less oil, moisture & dirt - meaning they won’t leave all that residue sitting on your pillow overnight for the next few sleeps to come before you wash them. But this also means they won’t absorb those good natural oils that are actually great for your skin and hair! They can also help prevent wrinkles that are caused by sleep lines from cotton pillow cases. Another added benefit is that they are great for your hair too🙌🏼. They can help prevent frizz and breakage. & it’s always the cool side of the pillow when you’re using a silk pillow case 😉 #silkpillow #cheriecreator
