A lot of people gauge beauty by what they can see on the physical. Â People never complement you by saying “Wow, you have pretty cells” but we all know that the key to have fairer skin, hair and overall well-being lies within. Â It’s what we feed our body to fuel our physical needs.
Ah, make-up. Â It’s so in demand. Â It does wonders, it does magic! Â True, I put on makeup myself to enhance my features. Â But wouldn’t it be nice to have skin as smooth as a baby’s and hair that’s oh so soft?
Trend or no trend, I’m happy that people are starting to realize the importance of being healthy and that beauty starts from within.
SM Department Store recently launched their Beauty Section that now offers an entire area for beauty ingestives. Â Individuals can now unravel more beautiful versions of themselves beyond skin deep. Â With SM Beauty Within, they introduced a plethora of supplements, vitamins and pharmaceuticals that are geared towards women’s well-being.
This is affirmed by Dr. Angel Tomacruz- Cumagun, dermatologist and beauty expert — “Ingestives are beauty supplements. By taking supplements orally, the necessary nutrients reach into the inner as well as outer skin layers from within. Thus, the expected outcomes like renewing cells, fighting free radicals as well as boosting the immune system can be felt and seen”.
