Beauty’in: Drink Your Way to (Clinically Proven) Better Skin

We all know the age old advice of drinking plenty of water as a way of keeping our bodies, minds and skins hydrated, but realistically this often translates into sugary drinks and too much coffee. Many of us don’t actually like the taste of water, but the only alternatives are full of flavouring and artificial sweeteners that provide far too many chemicals to really add any benefit. Although Vitamin Water exploded onto the scene a few years ago, claiming to offer vitamin benefit to skin and mind, they’re actually sugary drinks that are as bad as drinking a can of coke. Previously the sponsor of London Fashion Week, someone up top wised up to this and has replaced them with the relatively new Beauty’in Beauty Drink – created by Braziliian beauty expert and entrepreneur Cristiana Arcangeli. Beauty’in is a range of drinks that contain vitamins and supplements to aid the body’s natural performance (with no added sugar, preservatives or nasties) when consumed daily as part of a skincare plan. Not only do they taste great, but they’ve been scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and increase radiance too.

Available in eight different flavour combinations (including Lychee & White Tea, Blueberry & Acai, Coconut Water & Pear and Aloe Vera & Cucumber,) each drink provides a different benefit to the body – from helping to keep you strong and focused, to helping you face the day ahead. The drinks work in an innovative way, containing a pod of vitamins in the cap that needs to be broken and thoroughly mixed with the mineral water before it’s consumed; this keeps the nutrients fresh and effective, unlike many other alternatives which are about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

The bottle itself only contains mineral water and the magic happens when you pierce the cap to release the flavour – it’s essential that you wait for it to thoroughly mix, giving it a good hard shake, before drinking or you’ll get a powdery mouthful and a tasteless finish to the drink when you get to the end of the bottle. (So many times during Fashion Week I saw people spluttering because they hadn’t mixed the bottle correctly!) 

Clinical studies have also shown the positive impact these drinks can have on your skin, helping with skin renewal and elasticity thanks to the inclusion of collagen. When consumed continually (one a day) over a 60 day period, there was up to a 31% improvement in skin elasticity and firmness, 41% increase in hydration and luminosity, 38% reduction in wrinkle depth and 100% increase in firmness. Those stats are hard to argue with! This is such an easy programme to get on board with, especially as there are also Beauty Teas and Beauty Candy available to mix up the routine a little and ensure you get the same nutrients that can have a positive impact on the appearance of your skin.

You do have to ensure you consume the entire drink within three hours of opening to ensure the nutrients are still effective, but they’re so tasty (thanks to their unusual combinations) that it’s not hard to pretty much drink it all in one. Beauty’in not only offers a tasty alternative to other sugary drinks, a hit of goodness and long term skin benefit, but they help keep you hydrated and ready to face the day ahead.

The Beauty’in Beauty Drinks are available online via Selfridges priced £3.50 each. Beauty Candy is priced £2.50 for a little box or £8.00 for a large box. A box of ten Beauty Tea sachets is also priced £3.50 and available via Harvey Nicols.

    Hmmm….As much as I'd want to try this, for the added benefits, I'm just not sure. See, vitamins can be harmful, even more so sometimes than regular medications. When people take vitamins, it's important they don't take more of the same thing, so if someone is already taking a good multivitamin and some top us, a) do they even need this, b) should they be even taking this, at risk of going over the top on the vitamins, c) really, this is just over priced water, with the added benefits you can get from a healthy balanced diet and regular vitamins at a fraction of the cost. Is this just something that's designed to make us be more lazy when it comes to our overall health? BTW, my diet, is no way a healthy balanced, at all. I just wanted to point that out. I do like the flavours though and I'd certainly try that as regular flavoured water.

      Hi Louise. These aren't vitamins in terms of multivitamins or the like, these are targeted ingredients to help with skincare and overall health. They've done clinical trials and the results are outstanding – this isn't a lazy girls approach at all, more an easy way to better skin if using lotions and potions isn't for you.

      It's a Brazilian brand, so I imagine they'd be available in the US too. They have a website and twitter, so maybe drop them a note and find out? Or tweet the founder directly?
