I'll be the first to admit that my current way of living isn't probably the most sustainable. Work is as time-consuming as it is rewarding and alongside my start-up business, I manage (somehow) to keep on top of two websites I edit, including the blog. Factoring in a social life, it's safe to say I need more time in the day. All this can really push by body to its limit. Somedays I feel I've pushed it too far, and it tells me so by making me feel drained and exhausted. My skin can have moments of creating havoc too, which is always a lovely added extra. I'm sure I'm not alone in this feeling, especially around this time of year which is quite possibly, the hardest for your body to cope with. Silly season - filled with its Christmas parties and mulled wine - hasn't even begun yet!
So, for those of you that feel like you're punishing your body and it's showing in your skin, I think I've found a fairly good solution for you.
Enter Equi London.
Equi London was established by a Harley Street nutritionist and former City working girl, Rosie and Alice (two total girlbosses) who describe themselves as women who 'never want to miss out on the fun, lead busy lives, often burning the candle at both ends yet always with a firm eye on their health regimes'.
They came up with a superpowder which is aimed at boosting the health and skincare needs of us busy professionals that need to give our bodies a little extra help to cope with the effects a hectic lifestyle can put your health through. I was lucky enough to be given a sample of their 'Beautiful' supplement to put through its paces, in the hope of achieving glowing, more youthful skin.
The potent powder is to be taken daily, first thing in the morning. Start with one (flat) scoop whilst you get used to it. It's a bold but not unpleasant taste - pomegranate flavour - that can be a little harsh on your stomach to begin but go with it and afterwards, have some breakfast or nibble on some toast before you leave the house. And that, is that!
You'll slowly start to notice changes after 2 -3 weeks. The powder contains a powerful complex of marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, resveratrol, zinc and silica, along with multivitamins, antioxidants, omegas, probiotics and adaptogenic herbs, which work to support what your body needs to keep skin clear, glowing and more resistant to the signs of ageing.
The results so far? It really has worked for me. My skin really has improved dramatically recently and that's certainly no thanks to my current lifestyle. Equi London contains a whole lot of goodness that your body absolutely needs and it's as simple as one scoop a day. I'm hooked.
And slightly less wrinkly than before.
Next on the list? Definitely their Fundamental supplement!
