Beauty starts from the inside out. From the energy you allow to enter your headspace to the supplements and products you put into your body, the root of holistic beauty stems internally from the fuel you feed it. A healthy gut goes hand in hand with glowing skin, strong hair, and most importantly a positive and pleasant attitude.
Ahead we’re breaking down eight key ingredients to add to your daily supplements lineup to promote beauty and happiness from within.
Hyaluronic acid reduces inflammation levels, speeding up wound healing and signaling the body to build more blood vessels. It’s naturally antimicrobial, so it’s great for fighting infection when applied topically. Taken internally, HA can assist with skin hydration from the inside out, but it’s also lubricating to your insides, too.
This should be a staple in everyone’s diet not just for skin, but for nails, hair, joints, and digestive health, too. When all systems are nourished properly, it’s easier for our skin to glow, but of course, this source of protein has plumping power.

Vitamin C is notoriously one of the main building blocks of collagen. If someone is vegan and can’t take a true collagen supplement, for example, loading up on vitamin C will lead to major skin improvements. Take a liposomal supplement like this for a month straight and notice fine lines soften and overall tone even out.
Green tea is known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial assets, but it also does some other stealthy hero work. The polyphenol catechins inhibit the growth of bacteria and can even prevent sebum overproduction. But wait, that’s not all. It also protects cellular DNA from sun damage, making it another fantastic ally against premature aging.
There are many forms of stress, but consistently consuming an adaptogen like ashwagandha helps combat both oxidative and mental stress. Stress almost always reveals itself on the skin—whether that is via breakouts, fine lines, dull skin, or inflammation and redness.
Our skin reflects many of the ways our bodies are under-performing, and the gut is a huge part of this. Digestive issues and malabsorption of vital nutrients will show up on the skin first and foremost, so we want to make sure we are providing our gut with all the tools to metabolize our food and soak up the goodness we work so hard to put into our bodies.
