Do skincare supplements really work?

YES! Using the correct skincare supplement will leave your skin clearer and glowing from within! Your body needs a balanced supply of nutrients to stay healthy and your skin, which is the largest organ in the human body, is no different. A skin-friendly supplement provides a 360-degree approach to skincare delivering targeted nutrients to the skin that we do not get in topical treatments.

People benefit from supplements because of the variation in genetics, exposure to environmental factors, free radical damage from oxidative stress, exposure to the sun, medical conditions and overall lifestyle choices. The process of aging and skin damage can be slowed down and even reversed through the appropriate use of skincare supplements.

What are nutricosmetics?

Nutricosmetics (nutrients + cosmetic) are products and ingredients that act as nutritional supplements to care for the skin, nails and hair. They work from the inside to promote beauty from within. Topical cosmetics target the outer layers of the skin and nutricosmetics target the deeper layers (heart of the skin). Nutricosmetics does not replace topical products; they complement and enhance the effects of topical cosmetics. Nutricosmetics offer a deep and focused action through micro-encapsulation, micro-fragmentation and bio-assimilation to delivery results where the skin needs it.

Why should some supplements be taken on an empty stomach?

Some supplements such as QMS Collagen Intravital Plus and RITES Vitality Champion has faster and better absorption of nutrients when taken on an empty stomach. That means taking them first thing in the morning, 30 minutes prior to eating, or two hours after a meal. Nutrients in the supplements pass through the stomach into the small intestine. Majority of nutrient absorption happens in the small intestine. From there these nutrients are transported via the blood circulation to the cells and tissues where they have a beneficial effect.
