Download the app today to be a part of #BeautyWithoutBarriers and show the world what beauty means to you!Beauty supplements can seem like a hoax sometimes. You're telling me that these 2 gummies, or these two softgels, will get my skin glowing? The idea seems too good to be true, especially when you add in the fact that payoff for taking supplements isn't instant. As a beauty editor, I try a LOT of different products, all in the ever elusive quest for beauty. And let me tell you, supplements really do work. The secret really lies in choosing what works for YOUR body along with choosing high-quality products. Before we get into which supplements every woman needs in her routine, let's go over some quick tips for anyone looking to start (or improve) their vitamin intake. 1. These are supplements, which means they supplement your diet and don't replace it. Make an effort to intake nutritious foods and supplements will amplify your health. 2. Take supplements with a meal, unless otherwise noted! 3. If you're trying a new supplement, track your urine to see if your body is absorbing the nutrients. Whenever our body has an excess of a vitamin or mineral, your urine becomes a very bright yellow. This means your body isn't absorbing anything because it thinks it has too much of it. It was through this knowledge I learned that my body wasn't absorbing B12 in a pill form, so I switched to a softgel multivitamin and it worked. 4. Consult your physician before taking new supplements. If you have any preexisting conditions and have concerns, consult your doctor before starting a supplement regimen. Biotin & Evening Primrose Oil for Beauty Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is responsible for converting food into energy—making this a key player in our metabolism. Because it's processing our food into energy, it's also helping in maintaining balance in our gut and a healthy gut = healthy skin. Think about your overall health as a reflection of your systems working, with a key system being elimination and detoxification (gut health). If your gut is operating smoothly, your skin will be too! Where to find it: Many foods are rich in biotin including eggs, almonds, cauliflower, and spinach, making biotin deficiency a rare occurrence. Adding a biotin supplement in your routine can help boost your hair, skin, and nail health.

SEPHORA COLLECTIONSephora Collection x OLLY: Lustrous Hair
NATURE'S BOUNTYOptimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails GummiesEvening Primrose Oil is rich in omega-6 fatty acids and really amazing in helping moisturize your skin from the inside out. For anyone who has dryer than normal skin or skin conditions like eczema, evening primrose oil can be a saver. I personally take this supplement to help with my eczema and it's really helped with keeping it under control. Omega-6 is an essential fatty acid, typically found in fish, that has been shown to aid in heart health and skin health. What makes evening primrose oil great is that it is a plant-based source for omega-6. Where to find it: Evening primrose oil is in a category of its own, but foods like fish, nuts, corn, and soybeans contain omega-6.
VITAMIN WORLDEvening Primrose OilMultivitamin & Iron for Overall HealthMultivitimans fill in where your diet comes short. Taking one can help help ensures all your essential vitamin needs are met. If you're just beginning your vitamin regimen, it's smart to start with a multivitamin every morning. It will get you used to the idea of taking them regularly and you'll only have to take one a day.

Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
Just added to skincare routine
I usually use some of the the tatcha dewy skin collection skincare, I just added this to the routine. Literally tatcha is the only thing that keeps my skin care at this moment. The dewy collection is great for dry skin but it is a bit pricey. The $12 face mask thoooo be hitting. Anybody else use this brand or want to use it?
Black Owned Intimate Care ✨🌹
I did a review on this brand before but in honor of BHM I def had to bring it up again ! #Saltxo - Yoni Shower Gel[products]#[FiveStars] #Saltxo - Femme Rejuv Oil[products]#[FiveStars] I use this gel everyday! It leaves my Yoni energized and clean. I’ve never experienced any irritation and I’m extremely sensitive in that area. It smells very herbal like and a little goes a long way! ($17.99) The Femme Rejuv Oil is a great staple for irritation. I use this baby after my waxes, Emergency shaves, and after getting busy. I find this to be the best oil I’ve ever used down there. A little goes a long way. ($30) This brand is usually always out of stock! She sells out so fast but I always manage to get one thing. I definitely recommend if you love intimate soaps . Do you have a favorite intimate soap ?
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
