As beauty turns ever inward, the need for supplements that fit into your life—and aren’t relegated to your medicine cabinet—is now paramount. Today, supplements are being served up in fresh, easy-to-consume ways rather than simply as capsules.
It’s good news! Because of the new formats, you won’t need that iCal reminder to remember to take them every day. Instead, you can ditch the pill-like bottles and get collagen as a creamer or satisfy your adaptogen fix with a bite of chocolate (which in my opinion, also does wonders for the 3 pm energy crash).
Shop 8 of the most innovative new beauty supplements below.
The Scoop: You no longer have to pile in powders to your coffee and then work hard to cover up the taste. Instead, take the quick route with this dairy-free, Whole 30-approved coffee creamer. It’s made with coconut milk powder (complete with its heart-healthy MCT oil-derived fats) and is available in three separate flavors including vanilla, gingerbread, and of course, coconut.
The Scoop: Although Dr. Axe has been around for a bit, the brand recently underwent a redesign to focus on more practical ways to get your protein. Rather than grabbing a giant scoop, these individual sachets make getting your daily dose super portable, and now, even more potent thanks to the addition of the adaptogenic root ashwaghanda.
The Scoop: Dope Naturally isn’t just here for the cool name—it actually taps the powers of an innovative ingredient as well. Derived from watermelon seeds (yes, watermelon seeds), the brand’s signature Melonaid is the first plant-based protein powder made from summer’s favorite fruit. According to founder Sylwia Wiesenberg, watermelon seeds are full of anti-aging amino acids. The formula also contains beet extract, which adds a pretty pink hue and a solid boost of natural energy.
The Scoop: Kora Organics, the skin-care line from supermodel Miranda Kerr, gives you inside-out beauty in single-serving packs. Because it’s got a naturally fruity taste, it’s best served straight up with four ounces of water. It’s rich in Kora’s signature noni fruit extract which is a source of over 100 antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, as well as matcha extract to help increase energy, concentration, and focus.
The Scoop: As if with the flick of a magic wand, Amanda Chantal Bacon, founder of Moon Juice, turned her adaptogenic, antioxidant Beauty Dust into chocolate form to fight the 3 pm sugar crash, while also working wonders for your skin. The only problem? They can’t stop selling out.
The Scoop: The Nue Co. was able to turn the decidedly unsexy topic of prebiotics into the hot-ticket supplement of the new year (it launched in early 2017). Their apothecary-packaged jars aren’t just easy on the eyes, though. Inside, the skin food blend is packed with prebiotics to help with digestion, stabilize blood sugar, and leave you looking like you just stepped out of an aesthetician’s chair.
The Scoop: Fountain, the line of drinkable boosters from the Canadian beauty company Deciem, includes a slew of formulas for everything from your hair to your complexion. The Beauty Molecule has earned the most adulation and fans for its mix of hydrating hyaluronic acid and antioxidant-packed resveratrol, the antioxidant found in red wine.
The Scoop: The Beauty Chef doesn’t just make pretty food (have you seen her new cookbook?), rather, she also cocktails liquid blends such as the Antioxidant Boost, which is full of gut-friendly probiotics along with free-radical fenders from green tea, pomegranate, papaya. Pretty delicious, right?
