Long gone are the days of skincare being an entirely external practice, with the wave of ingestible beauty now at the forefront of putting your best face forward. Skincare no longer exclusively includes your favourite serums and moisturisers, but instead also comes in the form of pills, powders and liquids that claim to have the same (if not more) benefits for your skin as the topical products you place on top of it. It’s also not just a healthy, glowing complexion that the ingestible beauty world claims to aid, but also promotes everything from healthy hair and nails to boosting mood and energy.
Read on for our breakdown of Australia’s leaders in ingestible beauty, from the world-famous collagen brand that’s cultivated a cult following, to the local favourites that promise to leave you feeling your best yet. It’s also important to remember that while ingestible beauty will give glowing results, the products aren’t magic potions and always work best when paired with a healthy, balanced diet and plenty of water.
