What if a drink could give you the radiant skin, lustrous locks, and strong nails you’ve been pining after for aeons? Well, that’s the concept peddling the popularity of drinkable beauty products, a wellness trend that hones in on addressing beauty woes from the inside out. These potions and elixirs remind us that what we consume should be just as important as what we slather on our skin. Because let’s face it, we’re all guilty of dropping cash on beauty products one moment and stuffing our faces with the artery-clogging goodness of McDonald’s next.
You’re probably familiar with the buzziest drinkable, collagen, which helps bind cells together for more youthful elasticity and structure, so it plumps up the skin and smooths out wrinkles over time. But here, we’ve found a few more that promise more than just firmer skin. We’ll cheers to that.
LANEIGE Youth Collagen Drink
LANEIGE has reformulated its Youth Collagen Drink, packing it with new ingredients such as Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) which promotes deep sleep and relaxation at night, as well as Deep Sea Water to hydrate and repair the skin overnight, so you can wake up looking and feeling more refreshed.
$150 (25ml x 30 bottles), available now at all LANEIGE boutiques and selected counters.
FANCL Tense Up Tri-Peptide Collagen Drink
Collagen absorption can be tricky, which is why FANCL’s Tense Up actually contains patented Tri-Peptides, small molecules that are easily assimilated to provide building blocks and give signals to your skin for more collagen production. This formula also contains apple polyphenol to prevent premature ageing caused by the sun for a more radiant, hydrated skin.
50ml x 10 bottles, available now at FANCL stores and counters.
Moon Juice Beauty Dust
Here’s an adaptogenic blend to add to your drinks. The Moon Juice Beauty Dust is a favourite of Gwyneth Paltrow’s thanks to a combination of berries, pearl, schisandra, and organic stevia. These antioxidants protect cells from free radical damage, preserve collagen, and help combat the effects of stress (yes, it affects your skin health too).
£39, available now at Cult Beauty.
Brand’s InnerShine RubyCollagen Essence
Surely you’re familiar Brand’s Essence of Chicken, the symbol of all PSLE exams, but did you know Brand’s also makes a collagen-boosting drink? Unlike usual collagen drinks, Brand’s uses micro-collagen and micro-algae extract to boost collagen production and protect against degradation, so your skin will feel more supple and it’ll stay that way.
$62.90 (50ml x 12 bottles), available at Brand’s.
UVO Sun Protective Supplement
Now, this is an interesting one. UVO calls its supplement “drinkable sunblock”, which is a puzzling claim to make, because all we’re picturing is someone downing a bottle of Banana Boat, and it’s an alarming image. Don’t worry, though. It’s essentially a cocktail of vitamins, which includes beta-carotene and vitamins E, C, and D, which is said to not only protect against sunburn but also support skin immunity and decrease signs of aging. However, we’d still advise slapping on a layer of sunscreen before you head out.
$49.90 (box of 30 sachets), available at Drink UVO.
The Beauty Chef Antioxidant Inner Beauty Boost
Our gut microbiome is vital for better health and skin, which is why The Beauty Chef has concocted a special tonic that’s loaded with bio-fermented probiotics to strengthen your immunity. It’s also rich in papaya to help combat free radical damage and nourish your digestive system, protecting your skin from cellular damage for a more radiant complexion.
£29.00, available now at Cult Beauty.
