Topical creams and cleansers can only do so much to battle your skin and hair woes. Many of your biggest beauty dilemmas (acne, hair brittleness, under-eye circles) are more of an internal issue than a lack of skincare or sleep. (Though getting less than seven hours of sleep will leave anyone looking tired.) We’ve rounded up some of the newest and top-rated products to help clear your skin of pimples and pigment, improve your hair health and keep fine lines at bay. Here are our seven must-have beauty supplements.
For Strong Nails, Glowing Skin and Shiny Hair
These packets include Hum Red Carpet as well as Hum Killer Nails. The Red Carpet vegetarian formula includes bioavailable nutrients and healthy fats to support shiny hair and healthy skin. Filled with black currant oil, a natural source of GLA or gamma-linolenic acid, this pill helps with dry and brittle hair as well as split ends. In addition, vitamin E from sunflower seeds and an edible seaweed substance create the perfect foundation for stronger nails, stronger hair and even combating PMS.
For Hair Growth
A powerhouse pill for limp locks, this supplement contains all the big hair-hitters like biotin, keratin, vitamin E and red palm oil to support and enhance blood circulation to the scalp. Taking this supplement on a regular basis will promote healthy hair and strengthen existing follicles.
Packed with a cornucopia of beauty-enhancing ingredients like collagen, resveratrol, hyaluronic acid, grape seed, green tea and turmeric, this anti-aging supplement promises to improve skin's health and appearance. Antioxidants and anti-inflammatories bring skin the nutrients needed to appear smoother with fewer fine lines and wrinkles.
For Skin Pigmentation
A total of 19 active ingredients clear the skin of dark marks and pigmented spots. Glutathione, pycnogenol and bilberry extract treat and improve acne scarring, melasma, uneven skin tone, age spots and wrinkles. This supplement works its magic by inhibiting melanin, protecting cells from free radicals and whitening areas of the skin that are over-pigmented.
For Breast Health
Vitamin D, which is optimal for breast health, is an often overlooked and underrated vitamin in the American diet. This supplement can help ease PMS, balance hormones, eradicate breast pain and offer immune support.
For Energy and Under-Eye Bags
These comprehensive packets provide omegas for heart health and mood, a calcium compound to improve bone health and a proprietary blend of phytonutrients and vitamins. Perfect for travel, these supplement packets offer vitamin K, iron and vitamin C to help minimize puffy, dark circles under the eyes.
