Beautiful Inside and Out with Vitamin Shoppe #VitaBeauty

Hello said the sun … and so the fun begins. 💕 That’s right my dear beauties! It’s the first day of summer and I’m so excited to share this Summer-inspired Vita-Beauty Refresh with Vitamin Shoppe. Of all the seasons, this one is my favorite – and also the perfect time to refresh, renew and rejuvenate (with a mango shake or piña colada in one hand).

Let’s face it, despite the beauty of winter wonderland and the lovely festivities that comes with it, it doesn’t come without a price – hair frizz, split ends, dry skin, brittle nails, and the list goes on. Which is why a reboot is definitely in order. Looking and feeling good isn’t just about proper skincare routine and flawless makeup application, it all starts from within.

Vitamin Shoppe VitaBeautyPIN IT!

What better way to get started than flipping a few inspirational and informative editorials from Muscle & Performance, Amazing Wellness and a Ladies Burnout Tee. The following are an assortment of vitamins, supplements as well as topical beauty products for the hair, skin and nails that easily fit on anyone’s daily routine or beauty regime.

… and if you’re wondering, yes Vitamin Shoppe carries their own line of beauty products that are available across their 800+ stores and online website www.vitaminshoppe.com

AVOCADO OIL

Vitamin Shoppe  Avocado OilPIN IT!

I have always been a huge fan of all sorts of beauty oils and since I have never tried avocado oil (despite the fact that I eat this nutrient-dense fruit quite regularly on my salad or drink it in form of a smoothie), it was an exciting opportunity to discover its uses and benefits. What I found out is that it smells wonderful, lightweight and infused with an antioxidant Vitamin E, perfect for balancing, and moisturizing the skin.

Ever heard of the oil cleansing method? I totally swear by this step – massaging the avocado oil gently all over my face to help dissolve the oil that has hardened with the impurities stuck under my pores. Resulting in a deeper, gentler cleanse that balances my skin’s natural oils.

PLNT LIQUID COCONUT OIL

Vitamin Shoppe  Coconut OilPIN IT!

We all know that coconut oil comes with many uses – many of which I have implemented into my lifestyle routine. You’ll find one on my bathroom for my hair and skin care, and another on my kitchen for cooking. Did I say cooking? Yep. I love making my pad thai, or sautéing my vegetable or fish with a tablespoon or two of this dietary staple. I am quite the chef in our household, I love whipping things up in the kitchen while watching Master Chef and other cooking shows – which helped me achieve a better understanding that coconut oil adds depth of flavor in my dishes compare to using regular cooking oil.

Not a big fan of cooking? No problem. Like I have mentioned I also use coconut oil for my beauty regimen – one of which is moisturizing my hair with this magical potion before bleaching my hair. I promise you it’s amazing. I have fried and damaged my hair one too many times in the past. Until I came across of a beauty hack and ever since then, I never bleached my hair without pre-treating it first with coconut oil. To add to the list, you can also use it as an eye makeup removal, cuticle moisturizer, and lip balm.

ALPHA LIPOIC BEAUTY CREME

Vitamin Shoppe  Alpa Lipoic Acid Anti Aging CremePIN IT!

Have I ever confessed that I am in love with slathering my face with creams and potions? Well, if I haven’t — the answer to that is YES. I recently turned 30, and with all honesty I really wished I got started early. I will never get tired of stating that “prevention is better than cure” – yes, wrinkles is inevitable and it will happen, but if I can prolong it from taking place and looking apparent with creams … so be it.

This lipoic cream is best used shortly after cleansing while the skin is still slightly damp to aid in sealing the skin with extra moisture. Hello supple skin!

HYALURONIC ACID SERUM

Vitamin Shoppe Hyaluronic Acid SerumPIN IT!

The ever increasing popularity of hyaluronic acid as a moisturizing booster didn’t go unnoticed in my skin care department. Great for its moisturizing and hydrating properties but much better known for boosting elasticity as it is able to penetrate into the dermis.

Just like the avocado oil, I am quite new to the HA serum (also comes in cream version) but very eager to try it out and discover its benefits. Does it work? Oh yes, it really does! My skin feels plumper and healthier. Perfect timing for the glowing days of summer.

VITAMIN E AND BIOTIN + TEAL GLITTER PILL CASE

Vitamin Shoppe VitaminsPIN IT!

Vitamin Shoppe VitaminsPIN IT!

Vitamins and supplements helps our body to refresh and rejuvenate from the inside – which in turn is reflected on the outside. I truly believe that is essential for us to take care of our body … after all, it’s the only place we have to live in.

Vitamin E works round the clock to block free radicals from our body, which plays a tremendous part in the aging process of our skin and body.
Biotin is essential for carbohydrate, fat and amino acid metabolism which is often used to support skin, hair, nails and nutrient metabolism.

PebblesPIN IT!

This burnout tee is perfect for a quick run, jog or a quick power walk (bringing your dog is optional). Available in 4 colors – gray, royal blue, tahiti blue and plum (very cute and feminine color) for only $19.99 – but if you’re ordering one, make sure you get one size larger. I often wear small tees and I am wearing medium on the photo but it fits more like a small. Despite running small, it feels very soft, comfortable and breathable.
