Elevate your glow from the inside out

September 26th, 2022

With holidays a distant memory, dark nights, cold weather and shorter days drawing in we could all do with a boost of summer glow. Holding on to that summer sparkle going into Autumn starts from within. When you look after yourself on the inside it shows up on the outside.

Supporting your wellbeing routine with a supplement will help improve your sleep, gut health and enhance your skin and hair giving you that fresh, ‘just got off holiday’ glow.

With so many supplements promising an array of health benefits it can be hard for find the right one for you. We asked HUX founder, Damien Byrne, how to get started with a supplement regime. He says, “The category is confusing, overwhelming, boring, and largely full of ineffective products. You need a trusted health supplement partner from when you wake up, to when you go to sleep that addresses a specific problem. As a general guide, ingredients that are plant-based, naturally derived, of organic origin and provide at least 15% of your RDI (recommended daily intake) is a good starting point. The HUX Superfoods Blend provides essential daily nutrition - greens, superfoods, critical vitamins, plant protein; think of it as a daily insurance policy for your health.” When it comes to supplements know there’s no one size fits all. Start by identifying where you want to boost your wellbeing and use this goal to find the product best for you.

For optimum results you need to be taking a supplement daily for a minimum of three months to notice the difference. Byrne recommends, “First thing in the morning, on an empty stomach is the best time to take supplements as your body is most open to receive the nutrients, you most likely haven’t consumed anything else that will block the absorption and you are more likely to remember to do it if it is part of a regular, daily routine. The exception is a sleep supplement though, which should be taken one hour before bed.”

Supplements are not a quick fix or magic pill, you need to have a balanced varied diet, drink lots of water and avoid too much caffeine and alcohol. Here’s a round-up of some of the best supplements to supercharge your beauty and wellness regime.
