The Skin Ultimate supplement is designed to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails. Each capsule is filled with natural ingredients such as Skin Antioxidant, Skin Vitamin A, Skin Omegas, and so much more! When combined, these super-nutrient solutions will nourish, hydrate and protect your hair, skin and nails.

Look for products such as the PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation and Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream to ensure sun protection. The Powder-Me SPF Dry Sunscreen is one of our favorite products: it boasts a SPF 30 rating for body, face and scalp, is water-resistant for up to 40 minutes, and is reef-safe.

This serum is absolutely perfect for the winter months as it is filled with super hydrating Hyaluronic Acids! Say goodbye to dull, lifeless skin and restore radiance with this brilliant serum! This product is suitable for all skin types and promotes a healthy complexion. Additionally, this serum reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines for younger looking skin. Just like all jane iredale products, this serum contains no sulfates, parabens or phthalates — so no harmful chemicals. This simple yet powerful step is crucial and extremely beneficial for the cold winter months.
Another jane iredale supplement that we love is the Skin Omegas! This amazing capsule is filled with highly purified omega-3 fish oil and omega-6 from evening primrose oil. Combined, these oils help with both skin integrity and helps to promote a smooth, luminous complexion. These fatty acids are a vital part of a balanced diet, this is due to their cell-renewing abilities. For those with dry, sensitive or acneic, omega-3 is absolutely ideal because of the hydrating, smoothing, and anti-inflammatory aspects of the oil. These capsules are easy to digest and have no aftertaste, and only require two a day (with food).
