The majority of us slather so many products on our faces daily, from cleansers and moisturisers to serums, creams and a whole lot more. Still, it’s often difficult to see results, no matter the claim each step of your skincare routine makes. If you’re at a dead end and need to kick-start your routine back into gear, what about ingesting your skincare with beauty supplements?
It only makes sense that what we put in our bodies, and thus how healthy we are on the inside, can affect us externally through our skin, hair, nails and so on. Still, it’s only a connection that the beauty industry have acted on fairly recently, with the rise of beauty supplements.
If you’re a newbie to the supplement scene, though, it’s not the easiest world to navigate–thankfully, we’ve got you covered here at RY! Here’s a breakdown of our favourite beauty supplements that’ll help you positively glow. Keep reading to find out which pills, potions and more are worth your time and how they can supercharge your skincare regimen.
Perhaps the most well-known beauty supplement brand in the world, Carla Oates began The Beauty Chef by harnessing beneficial the power of botanical ingredients, including kale, spirulina, algae and more. Carla launched The Beauty Chef to encourage the everyday woman to focus not only on outer health when it comes to skincare, but their inner health. The unique bio-fermentation process that is behind all Beauty Chef skincare solutions is a major contributor to their efficacy–fermenting these key ingredients helps to increase their nutrient value, so they have a heightened effect on your health.
So, which products from The Beauty Chef are raved about in the beauty industry? We can confirm that bloggers, everyday gals and skincare professionals alike are loving practically every product in the range. If you want radiant skin that’s clear, fresh and hydrated, we love the Glow Advanced Inner Beauty Powder. New from the brand and also creating waves in the world of beauty supplements is their Well Inner Beauty Support Spray, a sage and peppermint herbal spray, which is bio-fermented with probiotics for a healthy, happy belly, and glowing skin from within.
The term ‘marine collagen’ isn’t something that you hear every day, especially when you’re talking about hair, skin and nail care. However, we all know that our bodies (and skin especially) need collagen to maintain a taut, youthful appearance. Collagen production slows dramatically after you pass your 20’s, with skin looking a little worse for wear, hair losing its shine and nails prone to breaking or chipping.
That’s where Vida Glow comes in. An alternative to slathering your face with too many beauty products, this unique supplement takes the form of a powder you ingest daily with your food. The benefits are undeniable–by strengthening the skin’s collagen matrix, you’ll notice hair looks thicker, nails don’t fracture as easily, and skin is smoother and more radiant. Pop some of the Vida Glow Marine Collagen Powder into your cereal, porridge, juice or smoothie of a morning–this’ll be your skincare saviour!
SkinB5 know skin. This is backed by both the incredible success stories told by their dedicated customers as well as the impressive amount of awards the brand has tucked under its belt. Rather than aiming to tackle skin issues (and more specifically acne) topically, the Skin B5 range was created as a next generation approach, which aims to treat the causes of acne from within. When you really think about it, this makes a whole lot of sense because most acne is caused by internal issues– it’s where we produce skin oils, release hormones and harbour stress.
The brand’s bestseller is their Extra Strength Acne Control Vitamins, which harness the healing power of Vitamin B5, Zinc, Copper and Vitamin A to actively promote a clear complexion. This cocktail of skin-loving ingredients work together to control sebum, regulate cell renewal and build immune defence, resulting in a healthy, clear and smoother looking complexion.
Skin B5 products are not just for those struggling with acne. If you’re on the search for glowing skin and strong and heathly nails–BC who isn’t, it might be worth picking up the brand’s Clear Skin Superfood Booster. This all-natural supplement contains 63 nutrient-rich ingredients, which support immunity, stress management and internal harmony.
TONIK comes in the form of coated capsules that are easy to swallow and digest. There are a few variations with Apple Cider Vinegar and Coconut Oil being the most popular. The capsule form makes them easy to take–just throw one down every evening and watch as results begin to show after just a few weeks.
So what actually are the benefits of taking these babies daily? Well, let’s start off with the (oft-dreaded) apple cider vinegar. Ever since Gwyneth Goop’d the goodness out of apple cider vinegar it’s risen the ranks of the beauty world, making a name for itself as a mythical cure-all that we’re admittedly still a bit in awe of. It’ll do some incredible things for your body, including purifying the skin, lowering cholesterol, suppressing your appetite, killing bad bacteria and clearing up your sinuses!
It’s pretty well established that coconut oil is a miracle product that will legitimately solve all of your problems. These capsules have so many benefits that we’re gonna need a few extra digits to keep track of them. They’ll help with weight management, building muscle tone, inflammation and arthritis, hormone balance, gum disease prevention and tons more.
