However with so many supplements out there, it’s hard to know where to start. “Everyone is different, depending on their own genetic makeup and lifestyle, so it’s important to look at that first.” Notes global skin and wellness expert Marie Reynolds. “Obviously, antioxidants like Vitamins A,C, D (lack of vitamin D also shows in dull lacklustre skin) and E are key for all bodies to fight free radical attacks. The other key ingredients would be Omegas 3 & 6, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Astazanthen, Silica. You should also look out for adaptogens, especially Ashwagandha or Reishi – these fuel the adrenals which, when fatigued, show up in the body as brittle nails, weak and shedding hair.”
Her top tip when it comes to taking beauty supplements? “Don’t just take them willy nilly. Look at a good 12-week programme and commit to it. It’s a waste of time and money just taking the odd supplement and expecting results. Also look at how you can eliminate stressors in your life, not just emotional stressors but also dietary toxins like processed foods, alcohol etc.”
