The Skinny On Beauty Elixirs
It is no secret that skincare can be slightly overwhelming. Trying to keep up with the many different types of products, treatments, terms, etc., can be daunting for even the savviest skincare junkies out there. Skin elixirs are a product that falls into the category of overlooked, as many people aren’t even sure of what an elixir is or when to use them. I want to break it down for you so that you understand the benefits of using elixirs both topically and orally.
Topical elixirs normally fall somewhere between the consistency of a toner and a serum. Of course, no product is made equal, but elixirs are typically formulated to be nourishing and hydrating for the skin. Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, panthenol, ceramides, and a variety of oils are often what make up topical elixirs.
Utilizing an elixir in your skincare regime can be a bit confusing as many people aren’t sure what step to apply it. The best is to use it after your toner (or cleanser if you don’t use a toner) and before any serums and moisturizers. A good rule of thumb is to apply your products from thinnest consistency to thickest.
Ingestible skincare is making big waves in the beauty industry. More and more we are understanding the importance of treating our skin from within. Ingestible elixirs are often formulated with collagen, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and other incredible ingredients that help support healthy skin from within. It is best practice to search for ethically sourced, high quality ingredients; such as, marine collagen.
Undoubtedly, adding in a high-quality elixir will help your skin function at its most optimal level. Elixirs can be mixed into any drink and typically have very pleasant tastes, making it an incredibly easy addition to your everyday wellness regime!
Both topical and ingestible elixirs are incredible additions to any skin regime as they can address multiple different concerns and are well tolerated by the majority of people. If you want a recommendation - Aura Inner Beauty has an amazing line-up up ingestible beauty products. Look for the Aura Inner Beauty Dew Drops Omega Oil in Seasonal Skin Collective's Summer Box. This can be used as a topical or an ingestible beauty elixir.
As always - don’t forget to do your own research to find the most effective elixirs for your personal skincare concerns and don’t hesitate to reach out to a professional if you are needing any guidance understanding what will best suite your unique skin needs.
Happy skincare shopping!
