Celeb secret: GliSODin Skin Nutrients

GliSODin Skin Nutrients celeb favourite, celeb secret, nutriceuticals

The list of celebs who use GliSODin Skin Nutrients ($80-$125, glisodin.com) is a mile long. Think Sandra Bullock, Lady Gaga, Kirsten Stewart, Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Gwyenth Paltrow, Kate Walsh, Vanessa Minnillo, Kellie Pickler and Jessica Biel.

And because it’s their JOB to have amazing skin and hair at all times, that makes ME want whatever they’re having.

In this case, it’s a high-end line of oral supplements (available in Canada at select medi-spas and doctor’s offices), that are packed with beautifying nutrients. A smart idea, when you think about it, because who really thinks topical products alone can do it all, especially if your diet or sleep habits aren’t up to par?

There are four very cool products in the range:

  • The Advanced Detox Formula is a 15-day treatment that eliminates the toxins that can cause blemished and dull skin, low energy, inflammation and poor digestion. I’ve tried it—the powder sachets that you mix twice a day with water are so yummy!
  • The Advanced Skin Brightening Formula gives your body built-in protection against photo-aging while helping to even out skin tone and boost radiance. Pair this with a topical brightening product to attack pigmentation issues from inside and out.
  • The Advanced Daily Formula is like a daily multivitamin to help your skin, hair and nails stay in tip top condition.
  • And finally, the Advanced Pre/Post Formula is designed to support the immune system to prepare and recover from cosmetic procedures.

I suspect we’ll see more and more beauty brands come out with ingestible beauty supplements in coming years. (They’ve been available for years in Europe and Asia, and did you know that even the mass brand Olay sells skin vitamins in the U.S.? Wow.)

What do you think—are you intrigued to try something like this?

I’ve tried both the Detox and the Advanced Daily Formula and have incorporated them into my daily regimen. I’ve always had problem areas around my chin but after the first week of taking the detox everything clears up nicely. I’d recommend this to anyone who wants to have a clearer, glowing complexion!

I am interested in purchasing this product. Can people with Rosacea benefit from it?

I don’t think it will hurt but I don’t think it’s going to be some miracle cure either. As I’m sure you know managing rosacea is all about identifying and avoiding your triggers… along with using a moisturizer that doesn’t irritate and helps protect the barrier function.

Here is some additional supplement info from the Weston A. Price foundation:

One theory holds that the condition is caused by lack of hydrochloric acid; therefore taking HCl with meals may help. Avoid coffee, alcohol, hot beverages, spicy foods. A skin mite called Demodex folliculorum is considered a causative factor. Researchers were able to infect the skin of riboflavin-deficient rats with the Demodex organism, but not the skin of normal rats. Thus, supplementation with riboflavin, along with the whole B complex, may help.
