Beauty Drinks – Skincare Never Tasted So Good

Posted On : May 18th, 2011 / 0 comments

It’s common knowledge that drinking water and keeping hydrated is a great way to keep your skin looking great. But what many people fail to realize is that, by adding nutrients and essential ingredients to your water, you can get double the benefit from drinking enough water. There is a new trend in the beauty supplement world of drinking beauty drinks to keep the skin hydrated, but also to infuse active ingredients into it in improve its appearance and perhaps even to reverse the signs of aging. Different drinks serve different purposes, and there are plenty of different purposes to choose from.

Some of the most popular ingredients to include in beauty drinks include ceramide, hyaluronic acid, and collagen. Collagen is the fibrous protein in our skin that keeps it elastic and firm. There are also many topical skin treatments containing collagen, but the simple fact of the matter is that collagen molecules are too big to be absorbed through the skin. But by taking it in orally, it can be directly absorbed through your gastrointestinal tract to your skin, where it can add to the collagen that your body already naturally produces in order to keep your skin looking youthful.

Hyaluronic acid is quickly becoming a much desired and demanded ingredient in these beauty drinks. This acid can actually stimulate the natural production of collagen in the skin. This active ingredient can be applied directly to the skin, but it’s all the more effective if you apply it topically and supply an internal infusion of the acid as well. By drinking it in with water, you can see multiplied benefits to your skin. This two-pronged approach to making sure that you get enough hyaluronic acid to significantly improve the look of your skin is far more effective than one approach alone.

Ceramides are also a popular ingredient in these beauty drinks. They are a family of lipid molecules that are found in high concentrations in cell membranes. These lipids can help to maintain the integrity of a cell so that it forms an effective, protective barrier against pollutants and also helps to retain moisture so that your skin stays hydrated longer. Couple that with the hydrating power of water, and you’ve got a wonder-team that will keep your skin looking smooth, soft, and firm, just the way it should look. Using a beauty drink in conjunction with a regular skincare routine is a must.
