IDS Skincare Lyco-White, $168 for 90 capsules

Did you know that a key cause of skin ageing is long-term exposure to UV rays? Which
underscores the importance of conscientiously applying sunscreen every single day. This is why those who truly want to prevent premature skin ageing or combat dermis damage—such as fine lines, pigmentation and a loss of healthy density—have taken sun protection one step further with the help of oral supplements that are designed to strengthen natural defence systems against UV rays from beneath the surface, and improve skin’s overall health and beauty.

Enter IDS Skincare’s Lyco-White, which has a blend of patented active ingredients that zoom in on revitalising your skin’s in-built resistance, and minimising the potential damage caused by UVA and UVB rays. Phytofloral®, a complex comprising tomato extracts, reportedly inhibits the excess production of hyperpigmentation-causing melanin, shields skin from environmental aggressors and provides anti-inflammatory benefits for calmer, healthier complexions. There is also polypodium leucotomos, which affords significant protection from UV radiation; black pepper-derived BioPerine® that’s said to enhance the rate at which active ingredients are absorbed into the body; and curcumin extract, which offers a wide range of benefits such as healing and brightening, thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties.

For best results, take three capsules daily in the morning after food. Over time, you’ll notice a more even-toned complexion, an improvement in skin texture and suppler, more radiant skin.
