Should You Swap Out Your Daily Supplement Pills For Vitamin Sprays?

We’re all familiar with masks, peels, scrubs and other immediate result-producing beauty treatments. Now there’s something similar that you can use to maintain your health, boost your energy and do so on the go. Handy beauty fixes are very real, and very much in demand, especially when you can quickly reach into your bag and grab a solution that you don’t have to slather on in seclusion.

It’s possible for you to do away with crow’s feet, laugh lines and acne in a few seconds. At least, that’s what companies like Sprayology are claiming. Sprayology’s liquid vitamins, anti-aging serums, and skin perfecting serums claim they can change your beauty regimen with a tasty spray you splash under your tongue a few times per day for an instant energy boost. And you know what—the sprays don’t taste gross either. I know because I tried it. Sprays like this could become the everyday beauty and health solution once these products gain popularity.

Just think, you’re glancing at yourself in the mirror in the restroom at work. You notice a few lines in your foundation around your eyes. They could be crow’s feet. Or laugh lines. Or early onset worry lines. Or any other kind of line you know you’re not happy to see forming on your face at 2 p.m. on a Wednesday. All you’d have to do to gain peace of mind (and go to work on those mysterious lines) is go back to your desk and pump a few sprays of a rejuvenation serum under your tongue. It all sounds pretty simple and convenient.

Does using an oral spray as a beauty solution or vitamin supplement mean we’re doing any and everything to reverse the aging process and maintain the belief that “Black don’t crack?” I don’t think so. Let’s be honest here. It would be totally ideal to carry around a miniature version of the fountain of youth — even if it is in a 1.3 oz. spray bottle we can pack in our purse. I don’t know a busy professional who wouldn’t give it a try, especially as an alternative to the horse pills some vitamins are.

But before you break the bank in an attempt to stock up and give them a try, know that vitamin sprays aren’t a cure-all. Oral vitamin sprays aren’t supposed to be instant fixes, but rather, ways to reduce certain things all while taking the same vitamins we already ingest to stay healthy. It’s meant to make things easier for you. Allowing you to reach into your bag when it’s time to take your supplements and splashing a small amount in your mouth instead of searching for giant glass bottles and One A Day containers. These sprays are more about having control of when we’re able to take care of our bodies, and how. With a spray, you can do so quickly, and whenever you feel like it.

Aging gracefully is a matter of health and beauty. Whether you choose to slow the physical signs of aging, or not, you’ve got to appreciate the innovation within the beauty and health industries. We’re now at a time where women can maintain a little bit of self-care through a few sprays for stress relief, reducing acne or just feeling a bit more energetic during the second half of the day. It’s about choosing to feel good. Looking good will surely follow.

In order to be the most beautiful version of ourselves, we women have to go through some pretty rigorous beauty routines. Now, when you’re in a relationship, do you want your man to know how much work you put into yourself, or do you want him to think you were born with it, no Maybelline needed. We checked in with our Facebook followers to see what they had to say. 

Jacque: The cellulite cream. And YOU know why, ugh! But he said I look good.

Mommy Needs Alcohol: Girl bye. I don’t hide crap. 16 years together 5 married with 2 kids. He done seen my insides cut open (c-section) so seeing me exfoliate my pores etc is really not a big deal.
