Balance your skinimalist skincare routine with our daily-use supplements
Do you know all of those beauty clichés that you see plastered across social media? Beauty is skin deep; you are what you eat; or our personal favorite - trash in/trash out! They are popular because they are true. Here at Ailani, we believe in a few things. For starters, wellness is a lifestyle, not a doctor’s visit. Secondly, plant-based skincare and wellness is the best route for people who know that the Earth supplies us with all we need to lead healthy, sustainable lifestyles.
As you prepare for the New Year, we know that establishing a skinimalist skincare routine is high on your list of priorities because you follow this blog and trust that we know our ‘ish. However, we encourage you to go deeper with your skincare routine by pairing your 3-4 product regimen with the true radicals of skincare - daily supplements! We offer two supplements: The Good Stuff, a GMO-free, vegan ayurvedic daily supplement, and Go Hard, a hair, skin, and nails supplement. Adding these two supplements to your skincare and wellness routine is a holistic approach that your body will thank you for.
What is Ayurveda?
According to The Ayurvedic Institute, Ayurveda is a way of life, of living in harmony with nature. This ancient Indian practice predates us by thousands of years and employs a form of medicine that emphasizes good health and treatment of illnesses through lifestyle practices and herbal remedies.
Over the past few years, Ayurveda has become increasingly popular here in the U.S., as more people seek alternative lifestyles and healing. Though many doctors and scientists consider Ayurveda to be pseudoscientific, there is much to be said about an ancient practice that transcends cultures and time.
Benefits of The Good Stuff Ayurvedic Supplements
The Good Stuff pairs well with any of our plant-based skincare products. This daily-use vegan supplement is simply good for any skin type, skin issue, or lifestyle. It contains over a dozen natural ingredients that address multiple issues that impair your daily life. Some of the main ingredients include:
Ashwagandha: an adaptogen that helps to manage stress. It reduces cortisol levels which are essential in decreasing your stress output. Ashwagandha may also decrease your blood sugar levels, boost testosterone, and increase fertility in men.
Cinnamon: alas, this spice is not just a cute addition to your favorite holiday dessert! Cinnamon is prebiotic with antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. Like ashwagandha, cinnamon may lower your blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Further, it may help to relieve digestive discomfort.
Turmeric: At the start of the pandemic, many people shared the benefits of turmeric in boosting your immune system, and with good reason! This well-rounded spice is not only used in your favorite curried dishes, but it is an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial that may protect against heart disease, delay Alzheimer’s, improve skin health, and protect your body against free radicals!
Turmeric also has properties that improve your skin health and protect your body against free radicals. Other benefits of The Good Stuff include aided weight loss, balanced hormones, and reduced toxins. Now, do you see why we encourage you to add this daily supplement to your skinimalist skincare routine?
Fortify your hair, skin, and nails with Go Hard Supplements
We know - there are many hair, skin, and nail supplements on the market. What makes Go Hard any better? Well, for starters, it’s plant-based. But you already knew that. These GMO-free, daily-use supplements contain all of the things that your hair, skin, and nails love. Biotin helps your nails to be less brittle and may also reduce hair loss. Collagen increases cell turnover and elasticity, as it strengthens and structures your bones, muscles, and skin. Keratin provides additional protection for your hair, skin, and nails.
The secret sauce of our Go Hard Supplements
The addition of MSM plant stem cells, amla, and goji berry is what makes these hair, skin, and nail supplements ideal for your skinimalist skincare routine. Plant stem cells are essential to rebuilding cells in your body because they strengthen and promote the growth of your skin cells. New cells mean clearer, smoother, softer, more supple skin.
Amla is a fruit that reduces hair pigment loss, stimulates hair growth, and treats scalp conditions. If you struggle with scalp psoriasis, for example, you know that this can harm your skin, leading to acne breakouts and other superficial skin issues that can wear you out. By pairing these supplements with a product such as our Sleep(in) Beauty 5% Vitamin C Night Crème, you will give your skin the much-needed hydration and lubrication that it needs to be irritation-free.
Finally, if you struggle with hyperpigmentation and other skin discoloration, the goji berry is the perfect addition to these supplements. This fruit inhibits melanin production, which reduces the appearance of dark spots and skin discoloration. It also promotes an even skin tone which, let’s be real - everyone wants!
The point is that you need to start the New Year as well-rounded and disciplined as possible. We want you to look and feel good from the inside/out. Our experiences taught us that this starts with a holistic approach to skincare and wellness. So do not hesitate to add daily supplements to your skinimalist skincare routine. You have nothing to lose and glowing skin to gain!
