Beauty Boosters: Worth It?

Fruits and Vegetables

Im sure that if I gave up fast food, exercised, ate seven servings of fruits and veggies every day, and slept nine hours a night, I could look and feel a lot better than I do. 


But I’ve got a job. And a toddler. Translation: I need an easier way to boost my beauty bottom line.


Enter shot-size beauty boosters that you down once a day. Granted, researchers go back and forth about the efficacy of most nutritional supplements, but these are a tempting bit of self-care: Better for your body, and cheaper than botox.


For the same price as a daily macchiato, and in less time than it takes to peel a carrot, you can fulfill your vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant needs. And because you’re nourishing your skin from the inside out, a prettier you could be a swallow away: 


A tasty one-ounce shot that delivers your daily recommended antioxidants. $37 for two-week supply.


Absorb the antioxidant power of 15 cups of green tea from one dropperful. Just add to a glass of water. Available in green tea, pomegranate, and blueberry. $39


Out of the Box
Dr. Debbie Palmer, a New York-based dermatologist, notes that upping your intake of nutrients is always valuable. “After all, your skin is a reflection of what is going on inside your body.”


Big gulp.How much do you spend on vitamins and supplements?
