You’ve updated your skincare routine for the 16th time this year and still haven’t achieved that clear and healthy skin you’re longing for ? That might be because you’ve forgotten that good skin does come from within. I mean, haven’t we all noticed new spots popping out after eating too much junk food or not drinking enough water for a few days ? And sometimes, even with the healthiest lifestyle, we need a little extra help. Here are some clean supplements to help you get that glowy skin you deserve.
The Beauty Chef
Another favorite of ours is the Collagen Inner Beauty Boost (Supercharged). As you might know, collagen plays a good role in anti aging products and supplements as it helps to improve skin elasticity. Why choose the Beauty Chef ? Well, for its clean composition of course but also for its taste ! Its wild berry flavor makes it much easier staying consistent with drinking your daily dose.
You know how much we love to support French brands so we obviously had to mention Aime, the label founded by Mathilde Lacombe and François Morrier. They have developed different formulas - responding to specific issues you might have with your skin - that all contain probiotics in order to promote a healthy microbiome. All Aime products are developed and produced in France.
Our personal favorite is the Pure Glow, a supplement specifically developed for skins prone to imperfections, blemishes or acne. Its main ingredients - probiotics, zinc and curcuma - chosen in part for their anti-inflammatory priorities, make the perfect mix to help the healing process of the skin.
You’re suffering from dryness, dermatitis or rosacea ? French Glow might be the product you didn’t know you needed. Acting as a moisturizer from within, its ingredients (borage, hyaluronic acid, alpha lipoic acid, eschscholzia californica and probiotics) will help reduce any redness while still being gentle to your skin.
Advanced Nutrition Programme
Founded in 2006, Advanced Nutrition Programme is a science-led and high quality range of supplements designed to boost the results of your skincare. The brand ensures full traceability of the ingredients used back to their origins and uses completely plastic-free packaging, made of 100% recyclable paper. If you struggle with acne, Advanced Nutrition Programme is probably the best pick for you.
Skin Accumax is the result of the synergy of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E and phytonutrients to work from the inside out to support healthy skin. Developed for problem complexion, its formula will clear your skin without drying it.
This formula focuses on the connection between the gut and the skin. By feeding the gut with bacteria, it helps clarify and brighten the skin. Even though you can use it no matter your skin type, this product is particularly suited for compromised or stressed skin.
You’ve guessed it : another French label. Ma Thérapie is a member of La Nouvelle Cosmétique, a nonprofit committed to artisanal, natural, ethical, and ecological cosmetics. Their products - skincare products and supplements - are made in laboratories in the Loire Valley and Hautes Alpes.
Those supplements focus on the signs of aging. Thanks to their composition - beta carotene, zinc, selenium, co enzyme Q10 - they help clarify the skin and give it more glow by reducing gut inflammation. If you don’t have any specific issues but want to focus on keeping that skin smooth and glowy, this one's for you !
One last piece of advice : please note that supplements should only be used to support an already healthy and balanced lifestyle, so keep eating your greens and drinking lots of water !
