Nourish Yourself With These Celeb-Approved Supplements


Kiss winter beauty blunders goodbye with these delicious and wholesome supplements that my celebrity clients secretly swear by.

Winter can leave us feeling decidedly lacklustre, with dry, sallow skin, flat hair and a sluggish digestion. Afterall, we tend to get less raw greens, fruits and veggies, our metabolism slows down and indoor heating (while imperative to staying warm!), strips our skin of moisture.

Beauty supplements are therefore an act of self-love in a capsule, caring for your insides through supporting good gut health, helping the body restore collagen levels, maintain hydration in the body and skin and replenishing lost vitamins and minerals.

Now there is something to get all #selfcaresunday about!

Hack your winter beauty routine with these potent skin savers. 





Still not taking probiotics? Naughty – but look no further than this majestic The Glow Powder to begin your digestive health journey. It is packed full of probiotics, prebiotics and superfoods which are all fantastic for good gut health and overall well-being. Think of it as your essential daily beauty blend, an inner moisturiser that will give your skin that extra glow.

I always notice such a difference in the clarity of both my skin and eyes when I’m taking my beauty-powder. My skin glows and holds moisture longer and even my hair seems to shine on another level!

My friend Pip Edwards also swears by it, saying “for me, skin care comes before beauty”. As a busy mum and owner of P.E. Nation, a spoon full of Inner Beauty and a splash of Chlorophyl in her water keeps her skin eternally on point and those positive vibes sky-high.  

Great for: digestive discomfort, increased skin vitality, improvement in skin conditions such as eczema, a decrease in breakouts.


Need to calm, soothe and relax?  Sip away the stress of the day with this calming and soothing tisane containing Oat Seed, Lemon Verbena and Chamomile flower blossoms.

For me, they really help relieve stress and anxiety out of my day. I can custom my experience and choose teas to either detoxify when doing a cleanse or stimulate the metabolism and promote skin healing if I’m under the weather. There is also something calming (and warming) about sipping a cup of tea that makes me feel almost virtuous and good about myself, especially if I’m maintaining a clean diet with my main gal Lisa Clark.

Good for: detox, stress relief and relaxation 



Extensions are out. Hair supplements are in. With ‘before and after’ photos that are blowing me away, Antidote is the Aussie-based label to watch when it comes to super-charging hair growth and health. While most of us get that it’s crucial to nourish your body via a balanced diet, there are a multitude of factors in our day to day life which affect and possibly disrupt our natural hair growth cycle causing distresses for your tresses. Think pregnancy, high stress, a malnourished diet, hormone imbalances, excessive alcohol and some medications!

Antidote provides your body with the nutrients, minerals and vitamins needed to nutritionally support the quality and strength of hair growth.  This super hair supplement is loved by Insta girls Jenna Isaacman and Mel Tan from Joy Histeric, as well as MM’s resident beauty writer.

Great for: scalp health and faster hair growth  


  1. BEAR LTD PROTECT with Vitamin A + Echinacea For Immunity

Feeling fluey? BEAR LTD Protect contains antioxidant Vitamin A to help support a healthy immune system. Vitamin C can also fast-track the healing of wounds and contains antioxidant properties that minimise the risk of cell damage attributed to free radicals. Echinacea then waltzes in to reduce the severity of the symptoms associated with mild upper respiratory tract infections…. so, BEAR is perfect if you’re hibernating for winter!

Founded by glowing Insta-faves Samuel Leetham and Saasha Burns, BEAR is disrupting the current supplement landscape.  BEAR uses activated ingredients and highly-potent botanical extracts of the highest quality to deliver optimal bio-availability. And, they look good on your bathroom shelf. Get amongst it!

Great for: immune health and overall wellbeing 




When it comes to anti-aging, the future is here. AgeLOC Y-Span is a revolutionary, scientifically proven supplement that helps revitalise your ageing defence mechanisms.

ageLOC Y-Span maintains and supports the activity of ageing defence mechanisms by positively modulating gene expression and provide broad-spectrum nutritional benefits to promote not only timeless skin but healthy systemic balance, cellular response, antioxidant protection, brain, heart and lipid metabolism! This eternal youth supplement is said to be loved by J-Lo (that would explain her incredible timelessness), as well as several high profile TV starlets closer to home (although I’m sworn to secrecy). Point is, it’s pricey but it WORKS. Treat yo self.

Great for: anti-aging, vitality, youthful gene expression

Bioglan Organics Coconut Oil

One thing that blew me away is that my friend and mega babe Steph Claire Smith doesn’t use beauty supplements! She does, however, swear by coconut oil, which she applies as a hair mask and daily skin treatment.

I don’t need to espouse the wonders of coconut oil, but just in case you forgot, this wonder oil from nature does everything, from whitening your teeth, killing germs in the mouth and gut, to being super high in healthy saturated fats that can boost fat BURNING (particularly around the abs!!!), all the while providing your brain and body with quick energy. Ensure it’s always in a cool, dark place in your pantry and you’ll have a wonder product for life.

Great for: a budget-friendly, organic all-rounder
