Creating Beauty from Within with Biotin and Vitamin A

Creating Beauty from Within with Biotin and Vitamin A

Beauty takes time. As cliche as that may be, it’s the truth. Nothing works instantly (I wish), no creams, no serums, no vitamins or supplements, none of it. Your body requires a buffer period whenever you’re adding or subtracting products from your regime. Think about it this way: you have to load the video before you can watch it. It takes a while for you to feel or see the effects, which is exactly why EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT that I write about on the blog is tested and vetted extensively before it’s featured. I can’t try something meant for long term change over the course of only a day or two, and expect results! So naturally, this one has been a month in the making.

I started incorporating these guys into my vitamin regime at the beginning of October and haven’t looked back. Even my mum noticed a change! But here’s the thing, full transparency: I was sick last month as well, so I was resting and sleeping a hell of a lot more than normal. Still not FULLY sure if it was the sleep or the vitamins, or a mix of both, but that just goes to show you that I need more sleep.. oops.

So, Centrum MultiGummies Multi+Beauty huh? What’s so special about these vitamins in particular that they’ve made it into Zoe’s vitamin hall of fame? Ever heard of Biotin? Well, if not, you’re missing out. It’s only the hottest thing since omega 3s! This hair, skin, and nails powerhouse, that is also sometimes know as vitamin H or B7, is the perfect addition to your beauty supplement army. It helps regulate blood sugar, keep your liver and nervous system healthy, and it actually aids in the growth of healthy babies (shout out to all my mamas)! Find it in foods such as egg yolks, nuts, legumes, and these gummy vitamins.

Also an MVP in the beauty world is vitamin A. This powerful antioxidant boosts your immune system, lowers your risk of certain types of cancer, and obviously contributes to healthier skin, hair, and nails. As if that wasn’t enough, it also fights inflammation and free radicals, the yucky junk that comes from overexposure to pollution and the sun. Be sure to stock up on salmon, goat cheese, sweet potatoes, and Centrum’s MultiGummies Multi+Beauty for a major dose of vitamin A.

In flavours berry, cherry, and orange, the gummies taste kind of like the Flinstones multivitamin tablets. Fun and fruity, and shaped like their flavour, they make adding Biotin and a number of other super vitamins into your daily regime way easier. Gummies aren’t only for kids, you know!

Another thing to note with these is that, I have tried a few other supplements with Biotin in them and they actually made my breakouts WORSE. Maybe I hadn’t given my body enough time to adjust to taking them, or maybe something in them just did not sit well with me. Whatever the reason, I had better results with these ones by far. My skin generally looks and feels smoother, minus the odd period pimple or two, and my nails are growing at a rapid rate! I am taking them in conjunction with other vitamins and supplements, but if others are noticing a difference in my appearance, then that is good enough for me. Find them at your local drug store or on amazon.ca, and click here for a $3.00 off coupon!

Thank you to 1Milk2Sugars for sending me these multivitamins to try out. Have you tried the Centrum MultiGummies Multi+Beauty yet? Do you have another holy grail multivitamin that you cannot live without? And let me know if you’d like to see a fully updated vitamin and supplement regime. I take things other than just biotin and probiotics, so comment below or let me know on social!
