As devoted as you may be to your specialty serums and creams, there’s no denying the fact that skincare products can only do so much to clear and brighten your complexion. It may sound cliché but the phrase “beautiful skin starts from within” exists for a reason; what you put into your body can have a much greater impact on the look and feel of your skin than what you slather on it.
Enter ingestible beauty: supplements and powders chock full of pre- and probiotics, collagen, and adaptogens (herbs and roots that reduce the effects of stress on our bodies) that support radiant skin from the inside out. “When your body comes up short on nutrients or your digestion is off, your skin is one of the very first places where you’ll see issues crop up,” says Jolene Hart, a Philadelphia-based integrative nutrition health coach and author of the Eat Pretty book series. “Ingestible beauty powders do a great job of closing that gap and boosting your glow.” When taken consistently, these powders can also improve skin hydration, lessen breakouts, and blur fine lines.
