IV drip therapy for skin and beauty

An inside-out approach could help you achieve the skin you’ve always wanted.

IV drip for improved skin and beauty

While what we put on our skin does have an impact, it’s important to realise that most creams and lotions don’t get past the epidermis—the surface layer of our skin. Wrinkles, pimples and more start down in the dermis, so can these topical products really do all that they claim?

The other part of the picture is what we put inside our bodies. Picture a glass vase. If the water is murky on the inside, no amount of polishing on the outside is going to make the vase sparkle. You need to fill the vase with fresh water, and only then will it shine.

It’s the same with your body. Fill it with good things on the inside—and you’ll help it glow on the outside.

Nutrition, skin and beauty

We’ve known about a connection between food and skin for almost 90 years. The food that we eat influences our gut health, immune system and hormonal function [1]. Together, these have a knock-on effect on:

  • Acne [2]
  • Eczema [3]
  • Rosacea [4]
  • Wrinkles [5]
  • Psoriasis [6]

Our nutritional intake has a direct impact on the growth and quality of our hair and nails too.

A nutritious diet is a great foundation for clear skin, strong nails and shiny hair, but sometimes we need more support. This is because it can be hard to reach our RNIs from food alone [7], and not all supplements are absorbed enough to make a real difference.

IV drip therapy ingredients for skin and beauty

IV nutrient therapy, also known as IV drip vitamin therapy, involves the direct administration of essential nutrients into your bloodstream. This method allows for a targeted and therapeutic delivery of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, ensuring they reach the areas of your body where they are most needed. Whether nourishing your skin cells on your face or contributing to the formation of keratin in your hair follicles, the benefits of iv drip vitamin therapy extend throughout your body.

At the London Clinic of Nutrition, we’ve created a beauty-boosting formulation that’s designed to support skin health, as well as enhancing hair and nails. Some of these targeted nutrients include:

Ingredients

N-Acetyl-Cysteine

This compound serves as the raw material for your body to make glutathione, the master antioxidant. Glutathione neutralises the free radicals that can lead to wrinkles [8]. It also helps the liver to detoxify substances, which is essential for clear skin.

Zinc

This trace mineral is hugely important for healthy skin. It promotes healing and is also an effective acne-fighting agent [9].

Amino acids

Your body uses amino acids (the smallest units of protein) to make collagen and elastin, which help to keep your skin smooth and your hair strong. Animal studies suggest that proline, one of the amino acids, may even help to reduce sun-induced skin ageing [10].

B vitamins

This family of vitamins works hard to keep your skin in tip-top condition. Vitamin B5, for example, has been found to reduce acne [11], while animal studies show that vitamin B6 helps to strengthen skin-plumping collagen [12].

A nurse administers these nutrients over a period of 45 minutes, during which you have the opportunity to relax (which is also good for your skin!).

Who could benefit from an IV drip using our formula for skin and beauty?

This formulation is suitable for a wide range of people. If might be especially helpful for you if:

  • You’d like to give your skin a boost before a big event, such as a wedding
  • You want to take a comprehensive, inside-out approach to skincare and beauty

Skin cells renew themselves every 27 days. By eating well, sleeping well and getting a dose of skin-boosting nutrients, you could begin to see a difference in just a few weeks.
