There’s a seemingly endless array of supplements available out there and it’s hard to know what’s actually worth trying and what might be best left on the shelf. When it comes to Aussie supplements there’s generally a more stringent process involved with what gets approved for sale so you’re much more likely to find something that’s worth introducing into your routine. That said, I’ve tried my share with varying results. Now that I’m a busy mum juggling family and career I want something that delivers, something that enables me to see and feel a noticeable difference, especially if I’m making the effort to introduce it into my already hectic routine.
For this reason I recently started working with Aussie ingestible beauty brand Vida Glow and love the results I’m seeing so far. Founded by Anna Lahey, the brand started with an ingestible marine collagen supplement in 2014, and has grown exponentially and now has an online presence in over 50 countries. Along with their marine collagen range, they’ve recently released a new supplement called Vida Glow Anti-G-Ox which is an effervescent powder designed to fight the signs of ageing caused from environmental accelerators (sleep deprivation, stress, pollution/climate). As a friend of the brand, I’ve introduced it into my health routine and have really noticed the difference.
Collagen is the protein which binds cells and tissues together and is naturally produced by the body, however as we age it decreases which can in turn affect the condition of our skin and hair. Vida Glow’s marine collagen helps to boost the body’s natural ability to produce collagen. Since I’ve introduced a collagen supplement into my routine I’ve noticed my hair and nails are stronger, my skin feels more toned and hydrated and it even helps with muscle recovery. It’s so easy too—I just pop a sachet into a glass of water and I’ve had my daily dose without even really needing to think about it.
As someone who invests in their skin and hair a lot, everything from regular visits to the hairdresser to facials and skincare, it’s good to be able to boost the effects of those efforts from the inside out. After all I’ve always said that if you start with a good base of healthy hair and a great complexion then the rest of your beauty routine will fall around that.
