The 7 Best Skincare Supplements For Ingestible Beauty (2023)
The Good Trade editors endorse products we’ve personally researched, tested, and genuinely love. Learn more about our methodology and business model here.
While natural beauty and wellness brands may not be looking to discontinue topical skincare lines anytime soon, a shift is happening in the industry. “You are what you eat” is how the famous saying goes, and this is true for our hair, nails, and skin health too.
“…Your skin is a mirror to your gut,” RMS founder Rose-Marie Swift explained in a 2018 interview. “Skincare isn’t giving you pimples; your gut is giving you pimples.”
This is why we are seeing so many beauty and wellness brands release supplements, vitamins, powders, and ingestibles for skin health. These products combat external concerns (acne, dehydration, and depleting collagen levels, to name a few) and promote overall wellness. By supplementing your morning face wash with a skin-forward ingestible, experts claim you can obtain glowing skin while also regulating your gut bacteria, improving your digestion, and feeling more energized. (Psst—don’t forget to wear sunscreen too, your skin will thank you!)
To help get you started, here are eight of our favorite skincare ingestible brands focusing on safe, natural, and plant-derived ingredients as well as transparency around manufacturing and sourcing.
1. RMS Beauty
Features | Vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, made in the USA
Price | $64/bottle (discounts available for bulk orders)
Rose-Marie Swift, the founder of RMS Beauty, believes in taking an alternative approach to healthy skin care: she is honing in on gut health. Rather than focusing solely on clean and organic topical products (RMS has many), the brand is also promoting healthy digestion through its supplement line, RMS Beauty Within. With two ingestible products, the Probiotic + Prebiotic and the Women’s Digestive Enzyme, RMS believes healthy and clear skin is achieved by first taking care of our gut and digestive tracks.
Features | Vegan, gluten-free, traceable ingredients, non-GMO, third party tested
Price | $54/bottle (bundle discounts available)
Beloved supplement brand Ritual is adding another tool to our wellness routine—this time, it’s for our skin! HyaCera™ is the new supplement designed to hydrate and nourish our skin from the inside out, with two ingredients: Ceratiq® and Hyabest®. Both ingredients are clinically studied in-house as well as by third parties for efficacy, and you can read more about them here. Or, scroll through Ritual’s thorough page, and you’ll learn more about the sources, certifications, and final manufacturing points of the key ingredients. And for the ultimate peace of mind, every batch of HyaCera™ is rigorously tested for dose and quality. Our editor especially loves the light vanilla essence of these capsules, which makes them easier (and more fun!) to add to our routine.
