This Chic French Skin Supplement Has a 4000-Person Waitlist

I'm pretty terrible at taking supplements, even though I have all the best intentions. It goes a little like this: I hear about a hot new skin supplement, I get said hot new supplement home and then I might down a capsule for the first few days but I'll forget to take it. Before you know it, I discover the dusty, past-its-sell-by-date pot years later in a long-forgotten corner of a drawer.

There are two reasons for this. The first is that beauty supplements don't have that instant effect that skincare has. (You know, the silky touch of a serum or the glow and instant hydration on the skin that makes you reach for it every day.) You have to swallow that capsule down and hope for the best.

Secondly, most supplements have to be taken with food, and I am not usually eating food in the same place every day. Sometimes, I'll have a breakfast meeting out, and the next day, I'll be eating toast at home. Then, if I have to take the supplements morning and night I have to lug the pot around in my bag if I'm going out for dinner (and then I inevitably forget to take it).

The only supplement I have ever really, truly, gone the distance with is Symprove—a liquid probiotic that seriously improves your gut (heads-up for anyone with IBS). With Symprove, you take it on an empty stomach, so it was just the first thing I did every morning. The same goes for Aime Skincare, which is so popular that its Pure Glow supplement has a 4000-person waitlist (but should be back in stock any day now).

These seriously chic, Parisian-born supplements contain probiotics, so they need to be taken on an empty stomach first thing in the morning, which means you can leave them by your toothbrush or glass of water and take them in the same place, at the same time each day. No need to tote them around.
