7 Best Beauty Supplements That Could Help You Achieve Glowing Skin
When it comes to our skin, many of us splurge on make-up and skincare products—but we're finding out now more than ever that what we ingest is just as, if not more, important. Going back to the philosophy that "we are what we eat", our skin is a direct reflection of our gut health, which is affected by our daily intake of toxins such as caffeine, processed food and additives. To help you get that natural glow, we’ve rounded up the best beauty supplements to add to your daily routine:
1/7 All-rounder: Glow by The Beauty Chef
“Beauty begins in the belly'', says Carla Oates, founder of Australian skincare company The Beauty Chef. Packed with antioxidant-rich ingredients such as Dunaliella salina, maqui berry, queen garnet plum as well as skin-loving vitamin C and zinc, this delicious berry-flavoured powder supports skin health and digestive balance. It tastes best when mixed with your favourite smoothie, yogurt or dessert.
