Beauty Find: Digestible Skincare
November 16, 2005
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. It’s also the most visible. My skin issues are borderline traumatic and I’ll go to any lengths, including ingesting botanical concoctions claiming to cleanse and revitalize from the inside. It’s the latest, haven’t you heard? Forget Vitamin Water, this is the latest in the “You are what you drink” beverage revolution. Borba Nutraceuticals (2.50) come in six ‘flavors’ with specific benefits like age defying, replenishing, firming, and a combo clarifying/anti aging formula.
is a multi-functional formulation for anyone wanting to treat dry, sensitive skin. Lychee helps to promote long-term skin hydration. Usage: shake well, twist and sip. It’s tastes a little thick for water. The flavor is reminiscent of a lychee martini without the fun of the booze buzz.
The downside is that you’ll have to ingest these drinks religiously. The recommended prescription is two bottles daily for optimal results. But Borba promises visible results in 7 days so you won’t have to wait long to find out if it’s worth it for you.
