A Little Extra

Here are some favorite supplements that target beauty concerns.

Slow-Growing Hair and Nails

Concentrated beauty minerals like iron, zinc, copper, selenium and potassium can help support the growth of hair and nails.
Try:
Nutrex Hawaiian Spirulina Powder, nutrex-hawaii.com

Lackluster Complexion

According to Hart, a complexion that has lost its glow needs a well-rounded nutritional boost, with a little extra support for digestive health as well.
Try:
Neocell Collagen Beauty Builder, with Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Silica and Alpha Lipoic Acid, neocell.com; HUM Nutrition Raw Beauty Green Superfood Powder offers the extra bonus of adaptogens and skin superfoods like matcha and moringa, humnutrition.com

Weak AND Brittle Hair

Biotin supports the metabolism of proteins in the body to promote strong, healthy hair. Biotin is an essential B Vitamin (also called Vitamin H for hair) because it strengthens locks and helps build healthy hair.
Try:
Reserveage Keratin Booster with Biotin, reserveage.com

Dry Skin And Loss of Elasticity

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) keep the skin hydrated and support the health of cell membranes, which lock in moisture. Lutein is clinically shown to improve elasticity and skin hydration.
Try
Natrol Skin, Hair and Nails–with lutein, biotin, vitamins A, C, D, E, along with copper and zinc and hyaluronic acid, natrol.com; Nordic Naturals Nordic GLA, a great source of moisture for parched skin that we don’t often get through diet alone, nordicnaturals.com

Skin Redness/Sensitivity

Building up the beneficial bacteria in your body’s micro-biome with probiotics can also strengthen the skin barrier and its natural defenses, making it less susceptible to redness and other types of sensitivity reactions.
Try:
Inner Eco Fresh Coconut Water Probiotic, inner-eco.com

Energy and Mood Boost

Mushrooms function as adaptogens to energize the body.
Try:
Beauty Matrix Powder By Mushroom Matrix, a smoothie add-in has a daily dose of vitamin D, critical for energy, mood and immunity, mushroommatrix.com
