We all know that beauty isn't simply skin deep, but the idea couldn't be more relevant thanks to a new breed of supplements designed to nourish your skin, hair and nails from the inside out.
With a highly concentrated mix of B and D vitamins, and ingestible ingredients like bio-marine collagen, zinc and biotin to name but a few, these unassuming capsules promise to combat everything from bendy nails to thin hair, oily roots to wrinkles and rough texture - great when you take into consideration the belief that topical products only address 20% of skin, according to specialists.

Look Fantastic - £24.99 for 60 tablets
With a cocktail of zinc, biotin and B vitamins, these tablets are like magic for weak hair and nails - and you only need to take one a day.
