Sure we’re all using sheet masks, funky tools, and even DIY beauty treatments but the trend towards internal beauty supplements in a myriad of forms is still going strong. Not only are they beneficial to your complexion but now so many are tackling mental and overall healthcare. Here’s a selection of various options to help cure what ails you.
1. SAKARA Life Super Powder, $45
It’s no secret that we’re obsessed with Whitney Tingle and Danielle DuBoise’s plant-based line ever since it launched. While they do have everything from beauty bars to beauty water drops, we love this all-in-one supplement. Not only does it help give you energy and improve gut health but the Ceramosides Phytoceramides are clinically-proven to improve your skin. They protect collagen for a plump, glowing look. Just add it to any beverage you like up to twice a day. We recommend blending it with matcha.
2. MOONJUICE SuperBeauty, $60
You need to take only two capsules a day to get a mixture of vitamins and other organic ingredients that take on everything. From minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, to neutralizing free radicals, this blend also promotes collagen and elasticity in your skin. Bonus: protein, lipids and DNA are protected from oxidative damage.
3. DR. MURAD Pure Skin Clarifying Supplement, $50
Dr. Murad has been at the forefront of internal beauty, a pioneer if you will being the first doctor to launch a skincare brand all the way back in 1989. This supplement is geared towards any one with blemish issues and even acne prone skin. Infused with nutrients needed to support the body’s natural defense against blemish-producing toxins, they also reduce the signs of current breakouts. Plus, they help prevent clogged pores too.
4. TRUVANI Marine Collagen, $45
There’s a total of 9 (count ’em!) benefits from this mega-powder: vibrant skin, healthy hair, joints, and bones, strengthening brittle fingernails, promoting leaner body mass and liver health, antioxidants, and restful sleep. The benefits of collagen types 1, 2 & 3 are all combined for a maximum delivery of what your skin needs to stay refreshed and glowing sans any unnecessary chemicals. Side note, there’s almost no flavor so you can put it in your morning smoothie or even sprinkle on that avocado toast you’re still clinging to.
5. RITUAL Essential For Women, $30
Ritual? More like a cult with a massive following after it first launched and hit everyone’s Insta accounts on a viral level. They’re just beautiful to look at and being an aesthetically gorgeous oral supplement never hurts. While other brands are filling their products with countless ingredients, Ritual is using only 9 to help improve your hair, skin, and nails. But as you keep taking them, the pills will also support blood and organ health, your bones, and maintain tissue structure. And we love that the website has a very detailed breakdown of each ingredient, what it does, and where it’s sourced from.
6. PERRICONE MD Beauty From The Inside Out, $167
Dr. Nicholas Perricone is another doctor who’s been in the supplement game for over two decades now. We like this set that combines the Skin & Total Body supplements with his Omega-3 supplements. The first is designed to support your immune system along with bone and joint function, and growth of hair and nails while also giving you radiant skin. The second gives you the vitamins and minerals needed to help maintain overall health and wellness, which is fab if you’re not getting everything from your current diet. Omega 3s have been proven to improve cardiovascular and metabolic health too.
7. DL.MD Multivitamin, $45
Enclosed in a Miron glass bottle to help the liquid stay fresher for a longer period of time, this multivitamin is highly absorbable. You can mix it with water – flavorless – or if you combine it with your favorite beverage or healthy snack it has a slight berry flavor. There’s 13 essential vitamins literally from A to Z that give your skin a much needed glow as well as filling in any deficiencies in your diet and helps prevent hair loss as well.
8. DR. STURM Skin Food Supplements, $70
Yes, she’s famous for those vampire facials but you don’t need to – and alas can’t – rely on in-office assistance with your current complexion. Opt for Dr. Sturm’s powdered mixture of the compound Purslane. It’s a mega anti-aging blend, which calms the skin, reduces signs of any irritation blended with anti-oxidants. It’s recommend to be used in tandem with the Repair Food supplement for a total body boost for your skin.
9. HUM Red Carpet Supplement, $25
Yearning for those red carpet days? We all are! Nonetheless we can’t give up; we do have those Zoom meetings, right? The major force behind this supplement is the black currant seed oil which is a knockout source of GLA (gamma linolenic acid) and ALA (alpha linolenic acid) both of which have been shown to improve skin’s texture. Vitamin E pulled from sunflower seeds helps give you that paparazzi ready shiny hair and dazzling skin. It also “neutralizes free radicals that damage collagen and dry the skin.” You’ll be ready for your close-up soon enough.
10. LUMITY Morning & Night Softgels Supplements, $98
Get your anti-aging round the clock with two doses in the morning and at night. To start the day, simply take 3 Morning pills filled with the brand’s Vita Complex containing vitamins C and E, Selenium and Zinc to “help protect your body on a cellular level against oxidative stress.” Then the 3 Night pills you take before bed have the Renew Complex full of Omega 3s and amino acids for a supple, elastic complexion. We tried it here at The Daily and definitely saw results in about a week.
