So you’ve got your skincare regime down-pat, but your daily routine might be missing this one key step… to boost beauty from within!
You’ve most likely seen a boom in beauty and wellness supplements flooding your Instagram feeds and filling up the aisles of your favourite stores in the last few years. Well, that’s because brands are finally cottoning on to the fact that there’s a holistic approach to beauty that we’ve all been missing – because how we care for our skin and our hair comes from getting the right nutrients into our bodies to begin with.
Everything from green powders to collagen elixirs to promote thick luscious locks, smooth skin, strong nails, sleep, mental wellbeing and much, much more, there really is something for everyone. But we all know that with too much choice, these things can seem overwhelming – even for the most in-the-know beauty lover.
For that very reason, we’ve rounded up some super-supps we love to help you get started and some of the key ingredients you should look out for…
WHAT: JS HEALTH Vitamin D Capsules
FOR: Bone, teeth and heart health
Let’s start off with our bones and teeth, because they need support too. These caps contain a therapeutic (strong) dose of vitamin D3 which helps maintain and support bone mineralisation, to aid healthy bone development and building. Just one of these in the morning with food will help support your muscle health and strength, skin and teeth health, plus your immune system and brain health too.
WHAT: Vida Glow Anti-G-Ox Berry
FOR: Skin and sugar cravings
Let’s just start with the fact that all Vida Glow supplements taste ridiculously delicious. Chuck one of these sachets into a glass of water or your morning smoothie to promote skin regeneration and help with your overall metabolism. The ingredients contain a clinically-studied blend of actives like vitamin C, biotin, chromium, hydrocurcTM, vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin B6, niacinamide and zinc.
WHAT: Imbibe Miracle Collagen
FOR: Hair, skin, nails
Just one scoop of this powder per day is enough to deliver some serious results over time. Containing bioactive collagen peptides, these are absorbed through the gut into the bloodstream, delivering the amino acids necessary for gut repair and cellular restoration which show themselves in wrinkle depth reduction and hair structure repair. Expect to see results in just a couple of months.
WHAT: WelleCo The Super Elixir
FOR: Overall health
Look, if it makes us look as radiant and beautiful as it’s founder Elle MacPherson, we’re all ears. This green powder is formulated using a combination of 40+ naturally derived ingredients, including wholefoods, herbal extracts, vitamins, minerals and probiotics. It helps support your overall gut health, bloating and provides immune support, enhances energy, and helps support the appearance of healthy glowing skin, and stronger hair and nails. Add this into your green juice every day for a full body glow-up in no time.
WHAT: KORA Organics Noni Glow Skinfood with Prebiotics
FOR: Skin and gut health
From another one of our favourite supermodels Miranda Kerr, comes this prebiotic gut booster – because we all know a healthy gut is the key to a healthy, beautiful body. Despite being free from sugar, artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, this powder tastes delicious. “I’ve been drinking Noni since I was 13 and feel it’s the key to my health and vitality,” says Miranda. “I take it every morning before a meal and sometimes in the afternoon when I need an extra pick me up.” Each sachet has a potent blend of lots of other nutrient-dense ingredients like acai, blueberry, matcha green tea and prebiotics too.
