Power and Beauty: Bio-Aesthetiq Essentials

Beautiful and healthy skin comes from within! I cannot stress enough how a healthy diet, supplementation and  a good skincare regimen are the true secrets to looking good. Most of us tend to skip on those parts and splurge on cosmetics instead since they offer instant gratification. Me being an obsessively vain person beg to differ. I'm so excited to share with you guys these beauty supplements I received from Power and Beauty  Bio Aesthetiq Essentials! 

I'll post a review about them after 28 days of consistent use. The reason I never review skincare products/supplements for a lesser period of time is that I base it on the normal skin turnover rate. That's about the time I will be able to see any marked improvements from any supplement/product that I use. 
These products are sponsored by Power and Beauty Bio Aesthetiq Essentials but rest assured that I will be giving my honest and unbiased opinion on these products based on my experience.

Source Naturals Sublingual Glutathione

Glutathione is composed of the amino acids L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid, and glycine. It is a potent antioxidant and works in the liver to protect the body from harmful substances. It is also a precursor to glutathione peroxidase, a key antioxidant enzyme, which protects against lipid peroxidation (fats turning rancid). Along with these health benefits, glutathione also has a noticeable whitening effect, which is why it has been widely used and recommended by dermatologists as a beauty product for the improvements in complexion that result from its use.

In sublingual form, glutathione is absorbed directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive tract and making for 100% bioavailability or absorption of the glutathione. None is wasted, so the results are more immediate. 

To get the most out of the product, we recommend taking 2-3 tablets daily under the tongue.

I'm actually fair skinned already so you're probably wondering why I would take Glutathione for that matter. Aside from its whitening benefits, Glutathione is a very potent antioxidant so it is also good for anti-aging. I am nuts about anti-aging products since I firmly believe that prevention is better than cure when it comes to skincare. Most Japanese models use Glutathione btw. Tsubasa wasn't born as fair as she is now. I'm really curious about this Sublingual form of Glutathione since it is supposed to be more potent than oral Glutathione tables and ouchless unlike IV glutathione and is rapidly absorbed in the bloodstream also.

Japanese women are obsessed about Collagen supplements! I can't wait to try this!

Natural Resveratrol

Resveratrol belongs to a group of plant compounds known as polyphenols, which are naturally found in the skin of red grapes, certain berries, and other plants, albeit in low quantities. These compounds have antioxidant properties which protect the body against damage from cancer and heart disease. 

Scientific studies have shown that Resveratrol supports healthy cardiovascular function through various mechanisms. Resveratrol, especially when combined with other polyphenols, is known for its' anti-aging effects, as well as for its ability to support a healthy inflammatory response. 

NOW® Natural Resveratrol contains a comprehensive blend of polyphenols, including natural resveratrol and proanthocyanins (OPC's from grape seed), plus catechins (green tea extract) for powerful cardiovascular protection.

Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl-L-carnitine, also known as ALCAR, is an acetylated form of L-carnitine, synthesized to provide a more bioavailable form of L-carnitine. It is a modified amino acid (the building blocks of proteins) that supports cellular energy production by assisting in the transport of fat into the mitochondria (the “power plants” of cells), where it is broken down and converted into energy for the cell. Thus, it can help to boost physical and mental energy.

Carnitine is especially effective as treatment for people with heart disease, vascular disease, memory impairment, or neuropathy, as they do not have sufficient amounts of carnitine in the body. 

What are its benefits? 

- Powerful antioxidant 
- Prevents brain deterioration 
- Increases energy levels 
- Helps improve memory 
Protects the heart 
- Weight loss supplement

I have combination skin but ever since the summer heatwave, I never go out and stay in an airconditioned room all the time. My skin is beginning to develop some dry/flaky patches so this is probably perfect for that!
