Skincare is ever-evolving with new actives and new solutions – but have you ever taken skincare routine inwards? This is bidirectional beauty. Where ingestibles and topical skincare work in tandem for next-level results.


And as the global number one marine collagen brand, Vida Glow delivers a science-backed routine – inside and out – with their 3-step system: Base. Treat. Complete.


Keep reading to discover how to create your tailored routine.

What is bidirectional beauty?

Bidirectional beauty pairs ingestible beauty – like collagen supplementation – with topical skincare. Ingestibles travel through the bloodstream to take effect deeper in skin’s epidermis and dermis, while topical skincare addresses concerns on skin’s surface. Both sides of this routine complement each other for enhanced, tangible results. In an easy to adopt, effective routine.

Step One: Build a base

Every routine begins with Vida Glow’s clinically proven, multi-benefit base – Natural Marine Collagen. As part of the natural ageing process, our collagen production slows and signs of ageing across skin, hair and nails begin to appear. Marine collagen peptide powders replenish the body with the essential ‘building blocks’ of collagen, which stimulates collagen production. With consistent, daily supplementation, Natural Marine Collagen supports the natural ageing process and creates a firm, glowing base.


Start your routine by stirring one daily sachet in your drink of choice – whether its water, juice, tea or coffee. Increase supplementation to two or three daily serves, if you’re experience more pronounced signs of ageing.

Step Two: Add an ingestible treatment

A targeted step, Vida Glow’s Advanced Repair range is formulated for specific skin and beauty concerns. Ingestible beauty staples like marine collagen are universal and multi-beneficial, while this treatment step focusses on a personalised routine and targeted results.   


If you’re experiencing an uneven tone, melasma or dark marks and under-eyes, try Radiance. An innovative ingestible treatment for signs of pigmentation.


For those suffering with excessive hair shedding or looking to improve the overall health of their hair, try Hairology. Hairology is a once-daily, vegan capsule formulated with hero active Anagain™.

The newest launch from the Advanced Repair range is Clear. Clear contains hero ingredients Acusolve™, Vitamin A, Zinc, Selenium and Niacinamide to help relieve the symptoms of acne, breakouts, blackheads, and excess oil products.

Step Three: Complete with clinically proven skincare

To complete a bidirectional routine, finish with Age Defiance skincare. A collection of three skincare essentials – a firming and brightening serum, smoothing eye cream and hydrating gel-cream moisturiser – Age Defiance complements the plumping benefits of Natural Marine Collagen.


The hero of the range, Rapid Renewal Serum features the highest concentration of Vida Glow’s trademarked firming biomarine active, Lumiséa. In an independent clinical study, 97% agree the serum plumps the skin, while 84% saw a reduction in wrinkles after 30 minutes.


In three essential formulas, Age Defiance hydrates and refines skin, while the complete routine rejuvenates skin across the dermis.


A new era in skincare, Vida Glow’s bidirectional beauty philosophy is a streamlined routine that works smarter. For tangible results and youthful, glowing skin.
