I'm pretty lucky when it comes to my skin in that it's always been relatively clear but it's never been what I'd describe as radiant or even healthy looking when left to its own devices so I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for products that claim to aid in getting clear, and healthy skin.
Viridian's offerings really appealed to me, already being a fan of some of their other products, and so I decided to try out their three step plan which includes Organic Clear Skin Omega Oil*.
I'll start on the capsules which are probably the simplest and quickest of the three products to explain/talk about etc. So, the capsules are made up of a blend of minerals, botanicals and antioxidant carotenoids (I've waffled on about carotenoids before, but basically, they're the 'thing' in some plants and foods which make them orange, and when in our body they are converted into antioxidants) as well as containing probiotics which I'm sure you're all familiar with as being those digestion aided things in yoghurt drinks! They are also vegan which means they're going to be ok for everyone to take.
Ok, so on to the Organic Clear Skin Omega Oil. Don't be fooled by the fishy name, there's none of that around here, this too is vegan. This provides all the essential fatty acids found in omega products. Omega 3 in particular is known for its anti-inflammatory action, and if we're honest, nobody wants nasty inflamed blemishes! SO that's always good to know. It also contains all the other things I've been blabbering on about so far; so your antioxidants (including vitamin E which is amazing for the skin, and while we're on it, I really recommend The Body Shop's Vitamin E cream), carotenoids, etc.
What I love about this is that you can put it in foods, so soups, juices, salads, the works!
Now, on to my favourite 'part'' of the trio- the book. This may be my favourite because I'm a bit of a secret geek but it's amazing at explaining how all the different vitamins, minerals etc. work, how they work, what they're found in, the works! I also found it amazingly helpful at helping me understand hayfever, so I'd definitely recommend taking a look at this if you're suffering at the moment like me.
It also gives some amazing recipes which I can't wait to get going with so I'll definitely keep you updated when I do try some of them out. They're mostly vegetarian with a couple of fish dishes thrown in, no other meat at all.
So far, in the month since getting this trio, I have had a grand total of one spot and even that is starting to fade after just two days, so I'm a pretty happy bunny with these products and I'm really looking forward to trying out some of the recipes in the cookbook and seeing if that makes an even bigger difference.
Will you be trying out the Clear Skin trio from Viridian?
