The Six Supplements To Help Your Skin

Here's a post by our Supplement Spot friend and skin care enthusiast, Stephany Lehman.  Enjoy!

When it comes to maintaining healthy skin, sometimes diet, exercise and topical skin creams simply are not enough. While these can significantly benefit your skin, the right vitamins and minerals will help your body to optimize the skin repair process. We will go over six supplements that will provide you with everything you need in order to have beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

Omega-3 Supplements

 

Omega-3 has long been one of the best supplements to take for healthy skin. This fatty acid is able to revitalize dry skin from the inside. When combined with a moisturizer, it can deliver incredible results.

 

In addition to its moisturizing properties, omega-3 supplements can help assist the skin's healthy inflammatory response. Taking it can resolve issues with redness and can even help clear up acne-prone skin.

See our Omega Category to see all your options.

 

Collagen Supplements

 

Collagen, a protein found within the skin, is the key to youthful looks. It helps to give skin its structure and elasticity. Although collagen is naturally produced by our bodies, the amount that is produced decreases over time. That leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

 

Thankfully, there is a natural way to increase the amount of collagen the body produces. When collagen is taken in supplement form, it is broken down by the digestive system and then recombined with skin cells. It can strengthen skin and help to give it a more youthful appearance.

 

Dutch Greens

 

Fruits and vegetables, especially dark, leafy greens are often praised for their ability to improve the texture and quality of the skin. Because of this, many people have sought out some kind of greens-based supplement. But while a number of supplements exist on the market, few contain the amount of nutrients that Dutch Greens do. These capsules contain antioxidant-rich berries, a wide array of greens, spirulina and even, a fiber complex. This supplement can provide a healthy glow that will be noticeable within days.

 

Vitamin D3

 

While vitamin D is essential to the health of the skin, it can come at a high cost. One of the best sources of vitamin D is sunlight, which causes sun damage. Taking a supplement can be a good way for people to take advantage of vitamin D's benefits while avoiding the drawbacks of sun exposure.

 

Taking vitamin D3 will boost skin cell growth, which will help regenerate dead skin cells. If someone combines this supplement with exfoliation, they will be able to achieve a beautiful healthy glow.

 

We carry Vitamin D in 1000 IU, 2000 IU, 5000 IU, 10,000 IU and even in a dropper.

 

Biotin

 

Although Biotin has long been associated with healthy hair and nails, few people realize that it can also be beneficial to the skin. It provides the body with a much-needed dose of vitamin B7, which can help to soothe dry and irritated skin. It can also improve the skin's overall texture, and can help clear up an acne-prone face.

 

Milk Thistle

 

Oxidative stress is one of the primary causes of skin damage. One of the best ways to fight back against it is with milk thistle. It is able to inhibit both oxidative stress and free radical damage. It will also help to reduce the most visible signs of aging, including discoloration, fine lines, and wrinkles.

 

Although milk thistle can be found in a number of beauty products, taking it in supplement form will deliver more potent results. It is best to look for a capsule that contains 100mg of milk thistle or more. When taken daily, it will drastically improve the appearance of the skin.

 

While over-the-counter skin care products, diet and exercise can be extremely beneficial, supplements should not be ignored. Although we can't hold back the hands of time, we can stave off the aging process with the right supplemental nutrition. You can experiment with a few of these supplements to figure out just what your body needs to keep your skin supple and youthful looking.
