BAZAAR Beauty Awards 2021: Best Oral Supplements – Sun Care

Miriqa Professional Skin Nutrition Supplement, $138, Miriqa®

While beauty supplements have long been a mainstay of Japanese women’s beauty routine, the rest of the world has just caught on. And it’s not hard to see why. Supplements offer a fuss-free way of maintaining good skin and protecting it, without having to apply yet another layer of product. Take for example the Miriqa® Professional Skin Nutrition Supplement. This beauty supplement is formulated with natural ingredients and clinically proven to brighten, protect and improve skin’s overall health.


The secret of its efficacy lies in its potent blend of three active ingredients. Carotenoids, a powerful antioxidant helps to reduce UV damage by absorbing its radiation and thus reducing the damage that it causes to the skin. It also suppresses the inflammatory response to UV damage and deactivates tyrosinase, an enzyme that is responsible for producing melanin. The gold standard for carotenoids is derived from colourless tomatoes. Regular carotenoids are orange in colour, like what gives tomatoes, carrots and oranges their colour, and a high concentration of these antioxidants would also mean a high concentration of these pigments which might leave an undesirable tint on the skin. This problem is alleviated by the use of colourless carotenoids from non-GMO white tomatoes.


Olives have been used as an ancient remedy and are valued for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These supplements use the properties of olive extracts to help calm skin irritation while boosting repair and protecting skin against pollutants and free radical damage.


Also included in the active ingredients list is L-Cysteine—an amino acid that can be found naturally in the body as well. It forms one of the three amino acids (the other two being glutamine and glycine) that support the production of Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that’s able to neutralise free radical damage, to promote a healthier and more radiant complexion.

Just one capsule a day can help protect your skin from UV damage and studies have shown that skin texture and radiance improved after 30 days of consumption and continues showing better results in terms of suppleness and smoothness in the next 80 days.
