If I could turn back the clock, I would tell my younger, acne-prone self to put down the harsh topicals and pick up a cucumber instead. Obviously, that's not a cure-all for the damage that peels and picking did to my skin, but consuming a hydrating, nutrient-dense diet would have saved me many tears and trips to the dermatologist—something that Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle figured out much sooner than I did. These two childhood besties saw how a whole foods–based diet transformed their lives and decided to create their own nutrition program and wellness brand, Sakara Life. "Sakara was born out of our own personal experiences," says Tingle, "mine being my struggle with my skin, and Danielle's being her journey with dieting. After we discovered the secret was to use food as medicine, we knew it was much too big to keep to ourselves."

It's safe to say that Duboise and Tingle are the masters of glow. (Their headshots above speak for themselves.) And while glow certainly does start from within, they've got a roster full of incredible products that support that dewy look, and I'm taking notes. Their newest launch, Sakara Systems, is the perfect jumping-off point for those looking to transform their skin, gut, and overall health. "With Sakara Systems, we've combined cutting-edge scientific research, clean supplements, and nutritionally designed meals to deliver lasting transformation. We also provide education to our community through the Sakara Life Podcast, an Eat Clean Play Dirty cookbook, and S Life Magazine," says Tingle. So keep scrolling to shop Sakara's iconic wellness products, the duo's skincare must-haves, and the clean makeup that has their glowy stamp of approval.

"This oil has made the most significant impact on our skin texture. It's so nourishing and hydrating, and it's made with thoughtful ingredients." — Duboise and Tingle

"We both love this product and are big fans of Nadine Artemis! The trick is to use it as an oil cleanser and remove it with a washcloth—a true game changer for hydration and improved texture." — Duboise and Tingle

"I just recently started using this as part of my nighttime routine and have found it to be super gentle yet effective. My skin is extra smooth in the morning after using it." — Duboise
