The Beautifying Botanicals collection from one of our favorite purveyors of tea, The Republic of Tea, is comprised of specialty tea blends designed to improve and nourish the skin. The Daily Beauty Blueberry Lavender Tea blend contains blue butteryfly pea flower and blueberry, both of which promote collagen production, as well as hibiscus, rose hip, bamboo, and schizandra berry. These ingredients have hydrating, anti-aging, and hair, skin, and nail strengthening properties. Similarly, the Beauty Sleep Chamomile Rose Tea contains the same ingredients, with the addition of chamomile. The recently launched Clean Beauty Berry Aloe Tea blend includes sea buckthorn berry, aloe vera, hibiscus, rose hip, and milk thistle, which is known to detoxify and hydrate, and also boasts anti-aging and cleansing properties. All of these blends are caffeine-free, and they also sell iced tea infusions. RepublicofTea.com

Curb your cravings while enjoying a sweet treat, all while infusing Vitamin C and collagen into your body? It sounds too good to be true, but EVERYDAZE Essential C’s Konjac Jelly does just that. These cute squeeze pouches clock in at only 10 calories and are perfect for snacking on the go. If Jell-O and peach rings had a baby, it would taste just like this. Konjac is an herb that helps improve cholesterol and aids in weight management, while Vitamin C is one of the best skincare essentials out there. EVERYDAZE.com

The woman-owned brand Lemonkind has a handful of healthy products, all of which come in single servings and are ready to eat, mix, or drink, making them perfect for anyone on the go. Bubble tea, or boba, has become increasingly popular in the United States, and Lemonkind’s Nutriboba is good for you and your skin. The supplement bubble teas are not only low-carb and keto-friendly, they are also non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, allergen-friendly, and contain no added sugars. Unlike traditional tapioca boba, Lemonkind’s konjac root boba provides many benefits, including prebiotic properties that improve the skin. Other ingredients include organic oolong, which promotes healthy skin, teeth, and bones; vanilla powder, a natural antibacterial that can help with skin health and acne prevention; and moringa powder, nutmeg, and astragalus, all of which help to promote skin health and elasticity, all while boosting your immunity.

Dates are fueled with Vitamins C and D, which boost collagen production, as well as antioxidants, perfect for protecting against free radicals that can age the skin.
