The Perricone Prescription: Your 30 Day Fix

I’ve always been one of those people who is super conscious of what goes in my body and what it’s doing for my overall health. Read on for my full review of the Dr Perricone 30 day supplement fix.

Often, it can seem impossible to get all the nutrients you need in a day’s worth of meals, snacks and juices, never mind the ‘repair’ that’s required after one too many post-work margaritas and constant toll from travel and different time zones. Supplementing with vitamins became the only way I could ensure I was giving my body the fuel it needed to maintain overall health and keep my body clean despite any desperate hangover.

Supplementing around health and nutrition has long been popular, but skin supplements are growing. As the old adage goes, beauty is only skin deep. All of this started to become overwhelming, even for a self-confessed healthaholic like myself. Navigating through all the vitamins, pills, powders and drinkable tonics felt like revisiting my old algebra textbook – none of it made sense and I had no idea where to start.

Paving my way through all the beauty clutter and sifting through options, Perricone MD’s Total Skin and Body in a 30 day supply seemed like a solution quick enough to keep my attention. A 30 day fix of supplements that gives you everything you need for healthier skin, hair, nails and overall health. Each box contains a set of 3 different supplements for every day of the month, including a multi-vitamin that contains 16 different nutrients to help improve energy levels, reduce fatigue, support a normal immune function and provide antioxidant benefits.

It also contains a daily dose of Omega 3 derived from Alaskan Salmon Oil. Omegas play a vital role in overall health and should be in everyone’s daily vitamin arsenal. Points to Perricone MD for providing this necessary staple in such high-quality form.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Perricone MD box without something for your skin – enter the Derma Complex Supplement, a skin building and boosting cocktail of Biotin, a key from the B-vitamin family for healthy hair, nails and skin. Co-Enzyme Q10, serving as antioxidant protecting cells from oxidative damage (aka ageing). And Grape Seed Extract, a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and protects the skin from damage caused by the sun, smoking and pollution. Consider these guys your personal skin care triple Teflon armour.

The list of ingredients in Total Skin and Body is impressive, to say the least. What’s even better is that every pill contains pure forms of each ingredient and excludes any fillers to “fatten out” the contents. In other words, Perricone MD’s supplements are the Brita Filter to your tap water: everything you want and need without the unnecessary additives you never asked for in the first place. It’s important to note that purity in vitamins correlates directly to quality, and Perricone MD’s Total Skin and Body delivers this like a luxury designer bag.

A review about Perricone MD’s Total Skin and Body wouldn’t be complete without discussing the oh-so-convenient packaging. Although perhaps a bit excessive from an environmental point of view, I do have to say that I was immediately drawn to the individual packets that make zipping out the door with your daily vitamin fix a breeze. I especially love these for travel – no longer is there a need to spend precious time sorting out my vitamins for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Think of all the valuable time saved for deciding whether you need those additional white kitten heels for your weekend trip to Paris (you do).

As someone who is accustomed to taking vitamins every morning, I can totally understand the eye-rolls for someone who isn’t. Mornings are crazy enough without having to add “remember to take your vitamins” to them. But beyond amazing ingredients, Perricone MD’s brilliant daily supplement packets has made taking your daily vitamins and achieving beauty inside and out a mindless breeze. Good things really do come in small packages.
