It's said that beauty starts from the inside. Apart from having a good heart, a good diet does wonders for our skin, hair, gut, muscles, and bones. However, it is not always easy to eat right. Fast food is so accessible especially when we're rushing to meet deadlines or just plain lazy to cook. Unhealthy snacking is another common thing we do when we're stressed, which, in the time of a worldwide pandemic, feels like always. Enter supplements, which are formulated to fill nutrition gaps when our regular diets are less than ideal. Here are the top five beauty and wellness supplements in the market that can help us reach our skin and body goals.
HUM Daily Cleanse® Clear Skin and Body Detox Dietary Supplement
Marie Claire and US Magazine number one pick is HUM Daily Cleanse® Clear Skin and Body Detox Dietary Supplement. With green algae and detoxifying herbs, it's meant to flush out toxins from the liver and kidneys, but its claim to fame is that it helps reduce acne breakouts. If you're prone to those, you may want to add this supplement to your diet.
Thorne D-1000 Dietary Supplement
With all the time we've been spending indoors, we may suffer from vitamin D deficiency form the lack of sun exposure. However, spending too much time out in the sun is not always good for the skin as the sun's harmful rays can cause premature aging. You can get your vitamin D from vegetables such as spinach, kale, collard greens and okra or take a supplement if you're not a fan of those. As Who What Wear writes, vitamin D is essential for the teeth, bones and muscles and boosts immunity as it's been reported that it helps fight respiratory infections. Medical Xpress adds that studies have shown that a vitamin D deficiency can heighten the risk of contacting Covid-19. To be safe, consider adding vitamin D supplement to your daily dose of vitamin C.
Ora Trust Your Gut Vegan Probiotic & Prebiotic Dietary Supplement
If your stomach is always giving you trouble, try a holistic solution, US Magazine and Who What Wear suggest taking this probiotic supplement for a healthier gut. This supplement is formulated for those with sensitive stomachs with six probiotic strains to improve digestive health and immunity.
Vital Proteins Morning Get Up and Glow

The Beauty Chef Collagen Inner Beauty Boost
Coveteur recommends this multi-tasking supplement that has bio-fermented collagen to boost collagen production which deteriorates as we age. This liquid supplement is also rich in free-radical fighting antioxidants such as acai and macqui berries, blueberry and papaya, the same ingredients that make this supplement easy to drink. Lastly, it contains probiotics for a healthier gut which will then positively affect your skin.
