A new fix for dry skin: Geniuine Health Dermalipid Softgels

Genuine Health Dermalipid nutraceuticals ingestible skincare

What did I tell you? Ingestible skincare is really picking up speed in the beauty biz. While GliSODin has the medi-spa market cornered, Genuine Health is a bit more mainstream (you can find it at drugstores, grocery and health food stores), not to mention affordable. Their latest launch is Dermalipid ($26.99-$49.99, genuinehealth.com), an oral supplement designed to replenish your skin’s moisture levels.

I get asked A LOT about what to do for extremely dry, itchy skin or conditions like eczema. It seems that there are a lot of people out there who haven’t had much luck getting relief with topical creams (or—horrors—dermatologist-prescribed corticosteroids). Now, I’m not a doctor, obviously, so don’t take this as medical advice, but I can tell you that if I suffered from a dry-skin problem of ANY kind, a product like this would be my first line of defense. It’s loaded with borage oil, olive oil and natural ceramides, and the claim is that it will reduce itching, redness, roughness and scaling within 21 to 28 days (the time it takes for the epidermis to renew itself).

Even though I don’t have dry skin, I’m tempted to take it anyway—the OTHER claim is that it will reveal a “fresh and dewy” complexion, and we could ALL use more of that!
