Energy drink darling.
Taurine is an amino acid that’s naturally produced by your body and found in your brain, eyes, heart, and muscles. It’s also a common ingredient in energy drinks and touted for its assistance in (among other things) maintaining hydration and balancing electrolytes. Although the name “taurine” is derived from the Latin word taurus, which means “bull” or “ox,” taurine has nothing to do with actual bulls. Or oxen.
Better than a shot.
In skincare, taurine is a powerful fatigue-fighter. When applied topically, taurine re-energizes skin to minimize the signs of fatigue. How? It boosts circulation and inter-cellular energy—helping with rehydration; so your skin instantly looks and feels more awake. Not dull. Not listless. Not tired. And with continued use, taurine can give you real improved radiance with a renewed glow, sort of like you’ve been unfazed by the daily grind. What stress?
