Eat Your Way To Beautiful Skin

Sometimes, skincare can only do so much. For healthy, glowing skin, you might want to add oral supplements to your routine. Singapore-born beauty brand Timeless Tomato offers oral supplements with carotenoids, the pigments that give yellow, red and orange produce their colour. The ingredient is rich in antioxidants, helping to protect the skin against environmental aggressors, while improving skin tone and firmness. Expect to see results after four weeks.

There are two essential ingredients you need for skin to look its best: collagen to plump and firm, and hyaluronic acid for moisture. Australian skincare brand Dr Lewinn’s, which has 25 years of experience in creating specialist skincare solutions, has two products that can help.

Its Ultra R4 Collagen Surge Plumping Gel ($74.90) contains caviar-like collagen capsules in a potent hyaluronic acid formula that plumps and hydrates skin, while improving skin firmness, radiance and elasticity. Its star ingredient is Neodermyl, dubbed the “needle-free” collagen filler, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply morning and night, on your face and neck, before topping off with a moisturiser. 

Then there’s Dr Lewinn’s Line Smoothing Complex Triple Action Day Defence ($74.90). It delivers a superior level of hydration for firmer and more radiant skin. Its star ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which attracts and retains moisture in skin.

The lightweight treatment essence contains a potent blend of eight amino acids that help minimise the look of expression lines, as well as powerful antioxidants that defend skin against free radicals, which are responsible for premature ageing. The result: softer, youthful-looking skin.
