THE BEST BEAUTY SUPPLEMENTS
We all know that city life takes a toll on your skin, whether it’s the pollution, the weather or throwing make-up around your bag and then putting on your face. And the same goes for your hair and nails – the elements can really play havoc with your barnet, as can excessive styling, and anyone who gets regular gel manis knows how much they wreck your nails underneath. Taking care of your skin, hair and nails from the outside is key but you should be taking care of them from the inside too, and these supplements can help you do that.
Evolution_18 Beauty Glow
She’s already created one of the world’s most iconic make-up brands and now Bobbi Brown has moved into the world of wellness with Evolution_18. The supplements range is designed to tackle beauty concerns from the inside out. These Beauty Glow capsules, packed with collagen, vitamin C, vitamin E, grape seed extract and hyaluronic acid, fight signs of aging from within by hydrating the skin and repairing its elasticity.
Vivienne Talsmat Rejuva | Radiance
If you don’t want to pop a pill in the morning to take your supplements, blend them into your smoothie instead. This Rejuva|Radiance blend from Vivienne Talsmat is a mix of high-grade marine collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid, maca root, ashwagandha and baobab to tackle wrinkles and get your skin glowing from the inside out. The fact that it also contains chickpea protein, with the tryptophan amino acid, ensures that it’s fully absorbed by the body, so you’re getting real bang for your buck.
Cha Vohtz Age Defy+ Green Beauty with Astaxanthin
This vegan and organic supplement from Cha Vohtz fights the signs of ageing, like wrinkles and skin elasticity, from within. Packed with six nutrient-rich superfoods including astaxanthin, seaweed, wheatgrass and spirulina, it detoxifies, helps cell rejuvenation and boosts your immune system – any help in that department is greatly appreciated!
Cosmic Molecule Collagen Peptides
Collagen is key for keeping your skin, hair, nails and joints strong, and with this Collagen Peptides powder from Cosmic, you can get a high strength serving that’s also easily absorbed by the body, as well as 18g of protein and 18 amino acids. You can blend the power into hot and cold bevs or sprinkle over your porridge and yoghurt, so it couldn’t be easier to work into your daily routine.
As well as containing nutrients like vitamin B12, vitamin D, folic acid and iron, chlorella (a type of green algae) also has the ability to help prevent the breakdown of elastin in the skin, which in turn helps slow down the appearance of wrinkles. You can sprinkle this powder over food, blend it in smoothies or even just stir it into water – it tastes a bit grassy, just like matcha tea.
