Celebrate natural beauty this September, together with the profound impact of routine. Did you know that our organs aren't all internal? Our skin is the largest external organ, with a total area of about 20 square feet for adults, and is the first barrier against environmental damage caused by pollutants, toxins, and ‘free radicals’. Although the perception of ‘beauty’ is subjective, we can all agree that it isn't only skin deep. Healthy hair, glowing skin, and strong nails may be signs of an effective beauty routine, but you shouldn’t overlook the importance of diet and supplementation. Diet and hormones affect our skin as much as the rest of our bodies.

Despite some of our best efforts to look and feel great, the body cannot solely produce all the vitamins, minerals, and dietary components it needs in sufficient amounts. So, apart from routinely limiting your sun exposure, maintaining a healthy diet regime, getting between 7 and 8 hours of sleep every night, and staying hydrated, what else can you do to support your foundational beauty from the inside out?

The value of a vitamin routine

Vitamin D often referred to as the 'sunshine vitamin', plays an essential role in the health of many of the body’s tissues and physiological functions, including hair, skin, and nails (HSN). Fortified foods, fatty fish and seafood, mushrooms, egg yolks, and supplements can be other effective ways to increase your vitamin D levels in the body.

You can meet a daily recommended intake of vitamins A and C if you consume plenty of fruit and vegetables. Vitamin A is found in green, leafy vegetables like spinach and broccoli, while citrus fruits and dark/red berries are rich sources of vitamin C.

Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin found in many unsaturated fatty acids, such as oily fish, olive oil, almonds, flax seeds, and avocado.

If you're looking for a multivitamin complex, we have a wide range that contains all the health benefits of each in one easy daily supplement. Also, look out for those that contain betacarotene and hyaluronic acid — one of the significant components of our skin that is clinically proven to maintain healthy skin.


Collagen is a protein that contains several amino acids and is a crucial ingredient in many beauty and wellness products. Our skin naturally produces collagen and provides tissue structure and strength. As we age, collagen production in our body decreases, so it’s recommended to include collagen in your daily diet routine. Collagen is highly soluble and can be consumed in capsule, liquid, or powder form by adding it to smoothies or baked goods. Shop our wide range of collagen products here.


Free radicals are known as ‘oxidants’, and antioxidants protect our skin against free radical damages (an easy way for you to remember!). Antioxidant vitamins include A, C, E, and carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, responsible for the orange pigment in carrots.


Zinc is a necessary mineral mediator in many vital body processes, including maintaining your regular hair, skin, and nails (HSN).

Essential fatty acids

One of the essential nutrients for healthy, strong, supple skin, in particular, is omegas. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids produce hormone-like substances called prostaglandins; these then convert into other substances that may affect the immune system and inflammation in the body. Omega-3 in fish oils help suppress immune responses, blood clotting, and inflammation, which may help reduce sensitivity and promote healing in those who suffer from sensitive, easily irritated skin. However, too many omega-6 fatty acids can adversely affect allergic responses and inflammation. For healthy skin, we would require a balance of both.

Supplementing with fish oils or omega-3 fatty acids can help promote healthy skin.

Natural face care

For those who value their inner beauty just as much as their outer beauty — the unique Dr Hauschka natural facial skincare range harnesses the benefits of organic plant properties without resorting to alcohol, which can be pro-aging. Because your skin's needs change throughout the day, each product supports your natural rhythm holistically.

For maximum results, follow the three-step morning and evening routine.

Regenerative power

According to biologists at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, our body replaces around 330 billion cells daily! Committing to nourishing yourself with healthy routines will help you build and strengthen the pillars of foundational health.

A beauty routine allows you to embrace what you have naturally instead of fighting it.
