The Lineup is a monthly series where we’re giving you an inside peek at the beauty lineups of cool fashion people, editors, makeup artists, hairstylists, and estheticians—all the people we trust the most. Get ready for a behind-the-scenes look at all the can’t-live-without products that make their worlds go round.

The saying "beauty comes from within" may be a cliché at this point, but the recent wellness-meets-beauty wave has brought in a new context that's anything but basic. These days, ingestible supplements that feed our insides to reveal clearer skin, shinier hair, and a whole host of other improvements are proof that beauty does, indeed, start within. For the founder and CEO of The Nue Co., Jules Miller, this notion has been the driving force behind both her business and beauty philosophy as a whole.

"There is such a strong connection between gut health and the health of your skin. An imbalance in your gut can manifest so many skin issues, from increased sensitivity to concerns such as acne and perioral dermatitis," says Miller. She vouches for dietary supplements like daily prebiotics and probiotics to help restore the health of your gut but also stresses the importance of managing stress. "I like to make time each day to exercise, go for a walk with my puppy, or go for a drink with a friend—all things that help me to relax and unwind."

But it's not just supplements and fresh air that keep Miller looking and feeling her best. It's also her commitment to thoroughly vetting the skincare, makeup, and haircare products in her regimen. "I use limited products but like to invest thoughtfully, favoring brands that echo The Nue Co.’s ethos around removing harmful ingredients from our beauty routines," she says. To her, clean and effective products are great, but they're not everything, and she's got some sage advice for achieving an enviable glow. "I'm not a big believer in overly expensive beauty products or treatments, so I would say take a vacation! There's nothing like relaxing, eating good food, drinking good wine, laughing hard, and sleeping soundly through the night. It will take years off you," she says. Miller should know about that sleep bit—she's an early riser who wakes up each morning at 6 a.m.!
