Beauty From Within

With a predicted market value of $8.3 billion by 2030, ingestible beauty is really having its moment…and we are so here for it.

Before we even start to consider the ever-increasing range of supplements currently promising to offer porcelain skin and Pocahontas hair, we should remember that the most important thing we can ingest for radiant natural beauty is the right food and – dare I say – plenty of water.

Our top 5 foods for…

Skin

  • Fatty fish
  • Avocados
  • Broccoli
  • Cacao
  • Green tea

Hair

Nails

 

However if you’ve ever suffered from something like confidence-crippling acne and been told to “just drink more water,” you’ll know all too well that a little extra support is sometimes in order.

Enter the pills, powders, and other products formulated specifically to help you glow from the inside out.

While some experts believe that both topical and ingestible solutions are necessary to achieve that dewy, glossy look, others go so far as to assert that supplements are here to replace topical treatments when it comes to the health of our skin, hair and nails.

What’s important is that the supplements we take to assist in things like growing hair, strengthening nails, or preserving skin health contain a high enough potency of ingredients to ensure that they are absorbed by said skin, hair, or nails – so always ensure that you’re purchasing a high-quality, expertly formulated or endorsed product.
