We put The Beauty Agenda spotlight on Inner Beauty.
Selfcare has evolved and now industry thought-leaders tell us true beauty starts from the gut - think beauty from the inside out. We’re all accustomed to taking vitamins to provide additional nutrients to supplement our diet, so why not for our skin and hair? Topical treatments will always be key but can only do so much, so the focus turns to the inside.
We are not just seeing attention around supplements, it’s more like a huge leap in interest as they increasingly feature prominently on beauty lovers’ latest ‘must haves’. Supplements are by no means new but have clearly taken a sharp shift - no longer a niche for the Gwyneth Palthrows of this world, now sought after by the wellness masses.

Her supplements target skin concerns commonly caused by our diet as well as working to maintain a healthy and happy body.
