The best natural beauty supplements
Now that winter is well underway, you may be finding that your regular beauty and health routine just isn’t cutting it when it comes to your hair, skin, nails and general well-being.
But before you go running out to buy all new products, try thinking about small changes you can make to your current beauty routine to suit your seasonal needs.
One of my personal favourite ways to tailor my daily regime is to add supplements into my diet. I know supplements may sound scary for some, but rest assured that there are plenty of natural supplements available that may help boost your health both inside and out.
Here are 6 natural supplements you may want to try this winter!

Best natural supplements for your NAILS
When searching for a vitamin or supplement for stronger nails, biotin is the ingredient to look for on the label. This vitamin helps produce amino acids, which in turn create protein, and protein is essential for the growth of strong nails and will help reduce breakage and increase shine.
Best natural supplements for your SKIN
Taking supplements for the skin can help to promote a clear and glowing complexion. Look for ingredients such as vitamin E, which helps to strengthen the capillary walls and promote healing and collagen to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture and firmness.
Best natural supplements for your HAIR
As well as biotin (which has similar strengthening effects on hair as well as the nails), other ingredients to keep in mind for stronger, longer, shinier hair are zinc, vitamin B-12 and iron. These ingredients help to strengthen the hair fibre and help repair damage from heat styling and colouring. Taking a supplement for your hair can make it grow faster and thicker, while reducing hair loss.
Best natural supplements for ALL THREE
If you need help in a little extra help in all three areas, there are supplements available that contain ingredients to target the hair, skin and nails all at once. Yep, you only need to take one tablet a day to enjoy the benefits of glowing skin, healthy hair and strong, shiny nails. An easy way to remember to take them is to keep them next to you toothbrush in the bathroom. That way you'll be reminded to take them straight after breakfast (they should always be consumed with or after food) and before you start your day.
Best natural beauty supplements for SLEEP
Many of us don't realise how much the weather and a change of season can impact our sleep. If you're struggling to sleep, try taking a natural sleep powder or supplement 1 hour before bed. Look for ingredients like melatonin, magnesium, lavender and valerian root when shopping for a natural sleep aid. And unlike medical or chemically-based sleeping aids, a natural one won't leave you feeling groggy the next morning.
Best natural supplements for your IMMUNE SYSTEM
If you're more susceptible to getting sick in winter (as most of us are!), then an immune boosting supplement might be what you need. Look for supplements that have vitamin B, zinc and vitamin C. But of course, taking these immune boosting supplements should be in combination with eating a healthy diet, regular exercise and quality sleep to ensure longevity with your health.
