There are many beauty products on the market today that promise this and promise that, but the only thing they do is empty your pocket book!
Consumers need to do some homework before they run out and buy any type of supplement or beauty aid.
As this article reads, Many Beauty Products’ Claims are Only Skin Deep. As I have always said the “proof is in the pudding”.
According to an article in USA Today by Cindy Clark:
•Beauty vitamins. Beauty in a bottle? “I was really skeptical at first, but there are scientific studies that prove that a number of supplements can make a difference,” Wells says. For instance, “the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil can help with under-eye puffiness.” Try a premixed pack or individual vitamins, such as niacin for acne or fish oil.
I have been supplementing with pharmaceutical grade fish oil since 2001, and I am what you would call a guinea pig.
I can attest to some of the wonders that Omega 3 has done for my skin. My skin is never dry (even in the winter). I used to suffer from mild outbreaks of acne on my chin and since supplementation with pharmaceutical grade fish oil, that has disappeared.
At night time I use a little bit of Vitamin E oil under my eyes. There’s nothing like enriching your skin with a very important antioxidant.
My nails are also very strong from the Omega 3s whereas before I used to have problems with them breaking and being brittle.
My lipid profiles are incredible, but that’s another blog.
