This ’90s Childhood Candy Is Now a Major Beauty Treatment
Sometimes, we just want to travel back in time to our younger days when the only thing we cared about was scoring our next sweet treat. Those childhood snacks have been subbed for more grown-up fare because, you know, adulting, but we’ve got the best news for you. Candy buttons, everyone’s favorite ‘90s staple next to Ring Pops and Sour Patch Kids, were just made into a beauty treatment, so you can relive your youth with guilt-free goodies.
Beauty guru Scott-Vincent Borba has been a pioneer in the health and beauty space, creating multiple products that you can eat and drink while also boosting skin health. And he’s back at it, creating one of the sweetest ways to get healthy, glowing skin. His Glittering Glow-Dots ($15 for 10 strips) look just like a sparkly version of the candy buttons you used to love. But these fruit-flavored beauties feature several good-for-you nutrients that will do more than just get you through that mid-afternoon slump. Each dot offers a blend of hyaluronic acid to help hydrate skin, with vitamin C and liquid ionic fruit concentrates to soften fine lines and wrinkles while boosting luminosity.
To get the max skin benefits, eat 12 dots per day, which makes it perfect for when you need a little pick-me-up to get you through the day. Plus, they look just like the candies we used to love, with good stuff your skin craves too. Get a pack of 10 for $15 here.
