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?

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?
