GP doesn’t wear makeup most days. Instead, she focuses on skin care. Antioxidants are a big part of that effort—and not only does she apply them to her skin, she drinks them every morning in a big glass of GOOPGLOW morning skin superpowder, one of goop’s bestselling beauty ingestibles. "I think it makes a serious difference in my skin all day," she says. "It’s a power shot of vitamins—just as your skin needs a moisturizer, you need antioxidants."
We know by now that what we eat can have an enormous impact on the way our skin looks and feels. Skin care’s important, but even the best topical formulas work most effectively alongside a nutritious diet that’s rich in antioxidants, the compounds that help prevent free radical damage throughout the body (free radicals are the reason an apple turns brown after you slice it and expose it to air). Enter beauty ingestibles, a brilliant way to support a healthy diet—and healthy-looking skin.
Potent, skin- (and hair-) specific, antioxidant-and-phytonutrient ingestibles can really help optimize your skin care from within. Just as with topical skin care, being consistent with any beauty ingestibles you take can amplify results. Take any one of these beauty supplements to help reduce the free radical effects of the sun, pollution, and stress, as well as to target skin dullness.
