Wouldn’t it be so easy if you could skip the overwhelming drugstore aisles and online beauty suppliers while on the hunt for your next beauty essential? All that time spent sorting through lists of ingredients and never-ending label descriptions can be exhausting, but it turns out there’s a simpler way to achieve luminous hair, glowing skin, and strong nails — without emptying your bank account or overcrowding your vanity cabinets.
According to Dr. Karin Hermoni, head of science and nutrition at Lycored, nutrition plays a key role in skin health and beauty. “While we’re all aware that an unhealthy diet is reflected in the skin, we can achieve more benefits by understanding the direct link between healthy diverse nutrition and its active benefits to our skin wellness,” she explains. To help you decode the medical and scientific terms, we’ve broken down the different kinds of supplements that’ll fix your beauty woes by popping a capsule or drinking a scoop of powder — no 17-step regimen required. Now that’s the kind of low-maintenance beauty we can all get behind!
Philip Kingsley Hair Supplements ($46-79): Philip Kingsley is pretty much the king of healthy hair. For starters, the brand was at the forefront of the hair supplement movement and has since expanded their product range to not just one, but four options for shiny, strong strands. This stuff might set you back $79 a bottle, but when you wake up with a Rapunzel-esque mane you’ll thank us. Within the range our faves include:
- Biotin Boost, $46, is great for anyone with a low-protein diet (or vegans/vegetarians) who want to transform limp locks.
- PK4 Soya Protein Boost, $46, is fortified with amino acids for optimal hair growth and quality.
- Root Complex, $58, is where multivitamins and essential fatty acids (Omega 3s) merge for roots that keep going the distance.
- Tricho Complex, $79, is their holy grail supplement that’s backed by 60+ years of trichology knowledge (that would be the study of hair and scalp health BTW).
