Alternative skin care: supplement city (not my stash)

Alternative skin care: supplement city (not my stash)

Sometimes I think the Lipstick League knows exactly what I've been meaning to talk to you about for ages but haven't yet. #oops This week's query is this: What alternative products do you use in your skincare regimen? Think supplements, things found in the garden or the fridge...

Although kitchen-sink beauty recipes occasionally catch my attention, like this make-it-yourself moisturizer and this home-made lipgloss, I'm not generally lured by DIY options, even those as simple as open-yogurt-slap-on-face.

I do like supplements, though – a small part of me thinks they'll make up for my wonky sleeping habits. (In reality, they'll have more effect when I sleep better; working on it.) 

I'm a long-time fan of Genuine Health Greens+, and now have come to rely on Greens+ Extra Energy. Dosed with natural caffeine, it also contains a full serving of Greens+ nutrition that I know contributes to happier skin.

I'm also into Glisodin skin supplements; I have more to tell you about that stuff, so stay tuned.

As well, I've been trying a skin-supplement brand called Age Quencher, and on deck is an Icelandic brand that promises to feed skin from the inside and out.

Here's what the Lipstick League is talking about right now
