I am very prone to skin pigmentation and my trusty sunblock has always been my best friend. While we are well aware that sun protection is key to fair, radiant skin, protection against the sun these days actually goes beyond sunblock to encompass skin supplements too. I was recently introduced to Miriqa skin supplement, a natural food supplement made from 100% natural non-GMO white tomato, olive extract and L-Cysteine.

White tomatoes offer sun protection, skin renewal and skin whitening properties, while olive extract is one of the most powerful antioxidants around and helps to lighten dark melanin in your skin. L-Cysteine works hand in hand with white tomatoes to inhibit melanin production, resulting in lighter pigmentation, reduced intensity of dark spots and a brighter skin tone.

Miriqa may be a new player in the beauty supplement market, but this Singapore brand certainly packs a punch, with studies proving that overall improvements in skin radiance and texture can be seen after just 30 day of consumption (individual results may differ).  I also love that only all-natural ingredients are used, hence there are no side effects.

All you need to do is take one pill a day, any time of the day, before or after food. It is however recommended that you follow a regular routine for optimal results, so if you take it in the morning, it is best to maintain that routine everyday.  I typically take it in the morning, at least 30 minutes before taking Rhapsody to school or for outdoor activities as it offers added sun protection.  It isn’t meant to replace sunblock completely, so it is imperative that we continue to apply topical sunblock religiously. I take it even on days when I’m at home because our electronic devices like mobile phones emit UV rays too! I’m constantly on the phone as I manage social media accounts on behalf of brands, on top of my personal account, hence Miriqa is definitely a lifesaver.
