3 ways to feel confident in your skin

Embrace filter free skin

In today’s world, it’s hard not to get caught up with social media, leading us to change our beliefs on what true beauty really is. Skin isn't perfect, it's meant to have pores, freckles, beauty spots (they have the world ‘beauty’ in there for a reason!), and sometimes blackheads and pimples. Try to remember that airbrushed and filtered photos are not real, no one was born to look like that. It’s time to practise accepting your skin as it is. Here are some positive affirmations to get that confidence back on track:

  • I take good care of my skin
  • I drink enough water so that my skin is hydrated 
  • My skin in radiant
  • My skin is happy 

Support it from the inside, out  

Did you know that your skin and gut health are linked? The connection between the two inspired the creation of this formulation to help you achieve healthy skin with traditional and/or scientific evidence-backed ingredients to support both skin and gut health. 

Think of our Skin + Digestion vitamins as a tool to support healthy skin when experiencing conditions such as symptoms of acne, pimples, skin eruptions, mild eczema or dermatitis. This comprehensive formula also helps support collagen production, plus relieves digestive discomfort and supports gastrointestinal health. Reclaim your skin confidence from the inside out.

The formula contains Zinc, which relieves symptoms of acne, pimples and minor skin eruptions. Burdock is traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to relieve minor skin eruptions and symptoms of mild eczema and dermatitis. It also contains Vitamins B2 and C, which maintain and support skin health, while Vitamin C maintains connective tissue health, collagen formation and wound healing. 

Hydration

There are links between daily water intake and skin hydration and skin physiology and that it may increase the hydration of the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin). Water makes up a large part of the human body and plays a role in normal physiological balance. The skin's water content plays a role in different skin functions and a deficiency is associated with dermatological impairments. 

The skin’s water content contributes to plumpness, elasticity and resilience. The structure of the stratum corneum and fat content of the skin functions as ‘waterproofing’ for the body. Specifically, water intake in those with a low initial water intake, can improve skin thickness and density, prevent water loss and improve hydration.
