A Crop Of Hydration Supplements For Glowing Skin

Hydration is all the rage this spring — an ideal time for restoring luster to dehydrated skin. Lacking in water, dry skin often feels tight while fine lines appear more pronounced. And, while a balanced diet and drinking plenty of fluids (i.e., water with lemon) can certainly help, adding a supplement can help support the lipid barrier and in turn, promote plump and dewy skin. Below, six supplements leaning on ingredients like phytoplankton seawater, hyaluronic acid, electrolytes and collagen — that along with a healthy eating regimen, can positively impact your skin’s hydration.

Ritual HyaCera Supplement, $54

A few weeks ago, cult brand Ritual unveiled its new third-party tested supplement whose sole mission is promoting hydrated skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Additionally, a sustainably harvested plant oil extract containing glycolipids and ceramides works to strengthen the skin’s elasticity. “We developed this with two of the best clinically-studied ingredients including Hyabest, a lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid to help promote glowing, moisturized skin,” said the brand’s founder and CEO Katerina Schneider, who also believes in simple health habits like “eating your water. Foods like cucumbers (which can have 95% water) are a great example.”

Apricō Hydrate + Replenish Sachets, $50

“True hydration comes from within, which is why we recommend a more comprehensive approach when it comes to supporting homeostasis and rehydration,” said Dr. Christopher Shade, the founder and CEO of Quicksilver Scientific. Touting a proprietary blend of 78 essential minerals and rare trace elements, Apricō’s electrolyte-rich pill also uses micro-filtered, 100% pure phytoplankton seawater mineral solution “for rapid restoration and revitalization.” Shade also added the satchels make great travel and after-workout companions.

Sakara Beauty Water Drops, $39

An estimated 90% of Americans are mineral deficient. Enter Sakara. Packed with naturally-occuring ionic trace minerals and inflammation-reducing rose water, you only need a dropful of these drops to help boost collagen, maintain a healthy pH balance, flush out toxins and restore minerals for resilient skin, hair, and nails. Drinking in the morning also helps reduce bloating and puffiness.

AURA Wildberry Hibiscus Marine Collagen, $62

Formulated with 4,500mg of wild-caught marine collagen known to rejuvenate hair and strengthen nails and joints, this liquid-elixir also features high-potency antioxidant vitamin C (known to protect cells against free radical damage). The subtly sweet floral flavor of organic wildberry flavor and hibiscus extract is ideal in fruit smoothies, tea, or in plain water (bonus points for the chic bottle).

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, $29

This bestselling Jennifer Aniston-endorsed, grass-fed bovine collagen lineup helps boost collagen for plump, juicy and hydrated skin. Thanks to a powerhouse combination of hyaluronic acid and antioxidant rich vitamin-C, skin is left soft and supple. That’s not all. Collagen — a protein that contains important amino acids, is also known to help nourish your hair and nails. Add a heaping spoonful in your morning coffee or smoothie.

Nue Co. Skin Hydrator, $45

Like it’s name suggests, this supplement from the London-and-LA based Nue Co packs in clinically-studied PhytoCeramides (known to bolster cells water retention) alongside a blend of 97% active ingredients including hyaluronic acid, plumping hydrolysed collagen and calming aloe vera to keep your skin springy fresh and smooth.
