While we’re more familiar with beautifying our appearance with the help of our arsenal of makeup and skincare products, many fail to realise that there are also ways of improving our visage from the inside out. If you haven’t caught the hint, we’re talking about beauty supplements.
For many beauty aficionados alike, some can attest to the power of these supplements that promise to give you longer nails, promote a healthy mane and most commonly, beautiful skin. Although others question the efficiency of these pills, assuming that these are just a marketing ploy fuelled by influencer-supporting brands, who knows, popping a few pills might just do some good for your skin than you think!
With the boost in the popularity of these beauty supplements, no thanks to the wealth of information and endorsement online from influential people, we’ve listed out some beauty supplements from some of the popular brands in the market, that you might want to give a shot the next time you’re looking to bump up your beauty routine.
1. SKIN INC

Strawberry Chewable Vitamin
Influencers around the world have been chewing on these vitamins for months and they’ve been swearing by how it works wonders for your hair. For instance, SugarBearHair’s influencer-driven campaigns that flooded our timelines in recent years. Now if that rings a bell, then we’ve found something similar: Hairburst’s Strawberry Chewable Vitamins. It’s been said that these vitamins work offer a different approach to hair maintenance by maintaining longer, stronger and healthier looking hair by giving you a healthy dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional supplements. But does it really work? Well, we can’t say for sure but it does look like something we’d be chewing in place of our gummy bears.

Tense Up Tri-Peptide Beauty Drink
If you want a complexion that looks like you’ve been sipping from the fountain of youth, then this tri-peptide collagen beauty drink might just do your skin some good. Though we usually recommend investing in skincare that’s specialised to aid in our skin’s collagen production or even maintaining a well-balanced diet, FANCL’s collagen drink is engineered with smaller collagen molecules, so it is efficiently and instantly absorbed into the skin. To top it all off, the Tense Up Beauty Drink also comes with skin-boosting active ingredients such as vitamins C and E, coenzyme Q10, rice extract, hyaluronic acid and apple polyphenol — a super antioxidant that protects your skin from the harmful UV rays. As a result, skin becomes firmer, plumper and more lifted!
FANCL Tense Up Tri-Peptide Beauty Drink, $58. Available at FANCL stores and counters islandwide.
