So, I feel like generally, there are vitamin people and non-vitamin people. Aka, there are those that swear that vitamins are a waste of money (or simply forget to buy/take them). Then there are people like me, who are like YES PLEASE GIMME THE SUPPLEMENTS. I don’t spend a ton of money on vitamins, and I’m not even that picky about what kind I use, but I definitely believe that a good multivitamin and probiotic on the daily can make a big difference, especially with immunity (and I usually add Omega-3s and Vitamin D as well).

While I like to think of myself as somewhat well-versed in your everyday vitamins, however, lately I’ve been very excited about a growing industry: beauty supplements. Whether you’re noticing thinning hair (this is NOT just a dude problem), breakouts, or dry skin, there are ways to nourish your hair, skin and nails from the inside out—and devotees claim that they can make a huge difference. Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, these supplements do not claim to cure any illness or disease, and you should discuss new supplements with your medical practitioner (especially if you’re pregnant or nursing). But, if you’re simply looking to fill in those beautifying gaps where your diet has maybe left off, one of the following supplements could be a great fit. Check out these innovative solutions, and let me know: do you have any “beauty supplements” that you swear by?

Thin Hair Supplement by Ouai

This capsules strengthen hair by “feeding” it with essential nutrients (biotin, silica, ashwagandha, and amino acids) so it can grow long and strong.

Murad Pure Skin Clarifying Dietary Supplement

More recent theories have been linking skin health to gut health, i.e., if you’re having issues with your skin, you might want to look at your diet and make sure that you’re supporting your digestive systems’ flora with healtny bacteria. This supplement is designed to nourish your skin from the inside out, and support your skin in fighting off breakout-causing toxins.

Red Carpet by Hum

Designed to support both healthy skin and hair, this supplement is packed with black currant and sunflower seed oils, plus antioxidants and vitamin E (plus, it’s vegetarian!).

Vinexpert by Caudalie

These super antioxidant capsules work to help your skin fight off free radicals so it can better repair itself—meaning that you’ll see a difference in wrinkles, firmness, and moisture levels.

Bosley Healthy Hair Vitality Supplements for Women

This blend of amino acids, B vitamins, and omega 3 fatty acids work to help hair retain its strength and moisture levels, so it can grow healthier and stronger.

Noni Glow Skinfood Supplement

These vegan, single-serve sachets feature noni, a powerful superfood and antioxidant, which supports glowing skin as well as a healthy immune system.

Within Probiotic + Prebiotic Dietary Supplement from RMS Beauty

I don’t care what my super-smart brother-in-law says (sorry, Leo): I am a fan of probiotics forever. They kind of do everything, because they get up in your digestive system to help your body process nutrients and toxins. So, they’ll make your skin look great, but they’ll also help you fight off the million+ bugs that are going around this season. Win-win, right?

    I’ve always been a little scared to take supplements… I always feel like if I have to take them, it means there is something that needs fixing in my life (eating habits, sleep schedule…) ?? So I don’t know, I’ll probably try them one day but right now it’s not on the top of my list…

    I generally feel like it’s best to get as much of my nutrition as possible from my diet, but I do try to take a high quality fish oil supplement and a probiotic daily. The only real *out there* supplement I take is a fruit and vegetable extract. It’s a small batch supplement designed as an alternative to a multivitamin, but it has an unintended side benefit – I have a pretty bad nightshade sensitivity, and taking this daily allows me to eat some nightshades without getting hives or joint pain.

    I’ve always wanted to try Hum, but something about it makes me nervous. Definitely think I’m gonna take the time out to do more research before I purchase!

    Great post! 🙂

    I swear by Chlorella and Vitamin C. I swear that those keep my skin in check. I take a LOT of Chlorella each day and have been doing it for about 4 years now. Vitamin C I take about 500mg of each day, and it’s also great for my health ofc.

    xoxo
