It is said, beauty is only skin deep. We say: Beauty is MORE than skin deep. In order to feel beautiful - inside and outside - we need to feel healthy and comfortable in our own skin. That's why we have put together some timeless beauty tips that don't include make-up or other “hacks” that only work on a superficial level.
Colorful vegetables that are rich in antioxidants neutralize free radicals in the body, which has many positive effects on your overall health and your skin.Green and yellow veggies appear to have the greatest anti-wrinkle effect, reports a recent study in the British Journal of Nutrition.
If you want to support your body from the inside out you should also consider adding moreOmega 3 fatty acidsto your diet. Omega-3s are important components of the membranes that surround each cell in your body. Together, DHA and EPA may help reduce inflammation and your risk of chronic diseases, such as heart disease. On its own, DHA supports brain function and eye health. But that's not all: Omega-3s have also proven to be effective in treating various skin conditions such as acne.
Foods that are rich in Omega-3s include fish, nuts, seeds and certain oils. Another way to ensure optimal omega-3 intake is a high quality supplement like ourPremium Omega 3 Fish Oil.
This advice may sound ridiculously simple but it works.
Up to 70 % of the human body consists of water. As an important component of our cells, water ensures that skin, gland, muscle and brain cells, among others, are functional.
By drinking at least 1.5 litres of water a day, you ensure that your body is sufficiently hydrated. Drinking water also helps boost your metabolism and cleanse your body of waste.
In addition water has many positive effects on your skin.Water helps your skin maintain moisture, which increases elasticity. Drinking water may also reduce puffiness and pore size, decrease acne breakouts and reduce blemishes.
A good way to ensure sufficient water intake is to make it a habit. Start your day by drinking at least one big glass of water or lemon water. We also recommend getting a pretty water bottle. It will remind you of drinking and make it more fun.
Many times people (and the cosmetic industry) think of beauty as something superficial. You apply a cream or lotion, use a facial mask or opt for beauty treatments such as botox or even plastic surgery. This approach doesn't really make sense to us.
When we started working on our latest formulaBeauty+ we wanted to create something that supports the skin from within and gives lasting results. Something that helps women feel good in their skin. For that reason the main ingredient of our new blend ishydrolyzed collagen.
Collagen is the primary building block to a healthy complexion. As we age our natural levels diminish, leaving skin dry and vulnerable to the effects of environmental damage. That’s why we formulated Beauty+ with hydrolyzed porcine collagen to support your skin’s integrity and revitalize your complexion with a youthful radiance.
Alongside high-quality collagen, our synergistic formula also contains amineral-rich formula of Zinc, Selenium & Biotin which helps support the maintenance of normal hair, skin & nailswith. Zinc further contributes to normal protein synthesis, whilstVitamin C contributesto normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. On top of this, we included hydrating Hyaluronic Acid to further optimize skin quality.
From our hydrolyzed porcine collagen to our natural vitamin C, we strive for excellence, which is why both have theoptimal molecular size of 500-700 kDa. It’s how we ensure effective cell delivery for a breakthrough formula that delivers results.

When we look at ourselves in the mirror in the morning, we usually don't see any difference in our face compared to the day before.
